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.
