From high-profile Champions League games in Europe to an intriguing match stateside with plenty at stake, there’s something for every American soccer fan to watch on Tuesday.
The afternoon’s slate of fixtures is littered with interesting battles and a few of them will pit some of the biggest clubs in Europe against one another. There’s Borussia Dortmund’s clash with Olympique Marseille, Ajax’s battle with AC Milan and Celtic’s tilt with Barcelona, mouth-watering match-ups that will attract plenty of eyeballs in the U.S. and world wide.
At night, D.C. United will look to pull off a massive upset again Real Salt Lake in the U.S. Open Cup final at Rio Tinto Stadium. Not much has gone right for United this season in league play, but they can somewhat redeem themselves by picking up some hardware against an in-form RSL side determined to win the 100th edition of the tournament in front of its home crowd.
