An English Premier League battle between Southampton and West Ham United will highlight this Soccer Sunday of action from around the world.
Both of these EPL clubs had strong midtable finishes in their first season back in England’s top flight, and they will look to continue their way up the table with a win Sunday at St. Mary’s Stadium. West Ham United will be looking for a repeat of their first meeting with Southampton last season, when the Hammers defeated the Saints 4-1.
The day’s action will begin in France, where first-place AS Monaco look to continue their unbeaten start with a win over Lorient. Superstar signing Radamel Falcao has scored three times for his new club, which wants all the momentum it can get heading into next week’s road match with Paris Saint-Germain.
In Spain, Europa League-bound Real Betis will look for their first win of the season in a home match against Valencia. Los Che have also had a hard time getting momentum going in the new La Liga season, dropping back-to-back close matches to Espanyol and defending champions Barcelona.
