Friends, the Champions League schedule is very good

We couldn’t reasonably ask for a better slate.

Things are getting spicy in the third round of Champions League, with some big teams having suffered setbacks during the first two matchdays. Tottenham are in an absolute must-win scenario, while Manchester City, PSG, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Manchester United would put themselves into deep trouble with a loss.

United and a very frustrated Jose Mourinho have a tough matchup with Group H favorites Juventus, in what looks like the week’s marquee matchup. It’ll probably be a bit of a defensive slog, though, so you might want to pick something else if you’re mainly interested in seeing high-tempo action.

All games can be found on Turner’s live streaming service, B/R Live. You can buy games individually on a PPV basis, pay $10 for a one-month subscription, or just sign up for the whole year for $80. For listings from outside the United States, check out Live Soccer TV.

Champions League: Tuesday, Oct. 23

Real Madrid should coast to a win, but they’re still worth watching since manager Julen Lopetegui is on the hottest of hot seats heading into this weekend’s Clásico. The best game of the day might actually be Hoffenheim-Lyon.

Champions League: Wednesday, Oct. 24

Mauro Icardi and Inter Milan keep pulling off last-minute miracles. Icardi sunk Tottenham with a stunner in the first round of the Champions League, and he scored a 93rd minute winner against AC Milan this weekend. Barcelona is a big step up in competition, but a result would see the Nerazzuri solidify their position ahead of Spurs.

For the soccer hipsters in the house, Dortmund-Atléti is an absolute dream matchup.

Europa League: Thursday, Oct. 25 early games

The first really great slate of the Europa League season is here! All four of the top games from this slate are extremely watchable. Honestly, it might be worthwhile to get a couple monitors. Yes, for Europa League.

Europa League: Thursday, Oct. 25 late games

Well, at least we had the early slate. Sad they couldn’t split up the really good games.
