1. Parma FC vs. AS Roma

Details: Monday, September 16 @ 2:30 PM ET – Ennio Tardini Stadium – Parma, Italy

Watch Here: beIN Sport on XFINITY

Why Watch: This is the AS Roma team that came into the US and dominated our MLS All Stars (3-1) in the 2013 All Star Game. They will be looking to do the same to Parma, as this third match serves as a tiebreaker between these two clubs. Francesco Totti, Roma’s all time leading scorer, (282 goals) will faceoff with Parma’s star midfielder, Jamie Valdes. Make sure to stream beIN’s biggest match, Monday afternoon.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Details: Monday, September 16 @ 3:00 PM ET – Paul Brown Stadium – Cincinnati, OH

Will Big Ben be able to find rapport with his receiving core? Look for a low score and a lot of hard hits Monday night!
