2015 FIFA Women's World Cup draw
12:00 p.m. Saturday (Fox Sports 1, Telemundo)
Six months to the day before the first game kicks off, the United States and 23 other nations will find out their itineraries for next year's showcase in Canada. So will fans hoping to spend their summer vacation in Montréal, Vancouver and the tournament's other host cities.
New England Revolution at Los Angeles Galaxy
3:00 p.m. Sunday (ESPN, UniMás)
It's only fitting that the last game of Landon Donovan's unparalleled career is his seventh all-time MLS Cup final. He and newly-crowned MVP Robbie Keane try to lead Los Angeles to a record-setting fifth championship to close out the league's 19th season. New England may be the underdog, but it has its fair share of star power in striker Charlie Davies, playmaker Lee Nguyen and enforcer Jermaine Jones.
Manchester United at Southampton
3:00 p.m. Monday (NBCSN, mun2)
Southampton's perch among the Premier League's elite became a bit more precarious on Wednesday, when Graziano Pellè and the Saints lost at Arsenal. Now they have a chance to rebound at home as resurgent Manchester United, led by Robin van Persie and Angel di María, travel to England's south coast.
FC Basel at Liverpool
2:30 p.m. Tuesday (Fox Sports 1)
Liverpool's first Champions League campaign in five years has been a rough ride. They've lost three of five group stage games so far, with just one win and one draw. But Steven Gerrard, Raheem Sterling and the Reds can still make the knockout rounds if they beat the five-time reigning Swiss champions. Basel's no slouch, though: they beat Liverpool at home in October on a goal by veteran forward Marco Streller.
