The penultimate match of the World Cup gets underway on Saturday, as the countdown to the World Cup final draws ever closer.
Neither team is happy to be there, but Brazil and the Netherlands will meet up in the World Cup third-place match at the Estadio Nacional in Brasilia. Brazil are looking to pick themselves off the floor after their dreadful 7-1 defeat to Germany while the Netherlands had just three days to recover from a difficult 120-minute performance.
Elsewhere, there’s plenty of MLS action on tonight, with the New York Red Bulls hosting the Columbus Crew, the LA Galaxy taking on Real Salt Lake for the third time this season, and much more. Lastly, Tigres UANL host Morelia in the second leg of the SuperCopa MX, with a place in the 2015 Copa Libertadores on the line.
