Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Vance McCullough, the voice of @XFINITYSports, delivers his analysis of the five key games to watch online, paired with five Twitter follows to give you insider information on the matchup. Have a matchup that you’d like Vance to feature? Tweet @XFINITYSports with the hashtag #5ToFollow.

1. BSV SW Rehden vs. Bayern Munich - German Cup

Details: Monday, August 5 @ 2:30 PM ET - Osnatel Arena - Osnabruck, Germany

Watch here: ESPN3 on XFINITY

Why Watch: Bayern Munich looks primed to win another match against SW Rehden Monday afternoon. I'm growing fond of BM because they're an aggressive club offensively, scoring 24 goals in their last eight matches. Bayern Munich's own Bastian Schweinsteiger was just awarded The German Player of the Year award, and will look to show why during Monday's match in the German Cup.

#5ToFollow Insider: Davis VanOpdorp - @Davis_VanOpdorp

2. Top 25 College Football Plays of 2012 - #CFB

Details: Monday, August 5 @ 5:00 PM ET

Watch Here: ESPNU on XFINITY

Why Watch: Remember when Johnny Manziel became ‘Johnny Football’, winning in Tuscaloosa? Remember the OT thriller when Stanford shook up the BCS beating Oregon? And then there’s the hit that echoes in eternity - Jadeveon Clowney in the Outback Bowl. Tune-in to review a great 2012 season and get fired-up for 2013.

3. Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals - #LADvsSTL

Details: Monday, August 5 @ 7:00 PM ET - Busch Stadium - St. Louis, MO

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: This Monday night matchup is as good as it gets. Clayton Kershaw is the only starter in the MLB with an ERA under 2.00. Adam Wainwright has walked only 19 batters all season, while leading the MLB in innings pitched. Enjoy baseball at its best as these two aces duel it out on ESPN.

5. Seattle Storm vs. Phoenix Mercury - #WNBA

Details: Tuesday, August 6 @ 10:00 PM ET – US Airways Center – Phoenix, AZ

Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY

Why Watch: Mercury's Brittney Griner is one of the best stories of the season. Her and her legendary point guard, Diana Taurasi, form a deadly one-two combination. Look for these two to ball hard on ESPN Tuesday night.
