This midweek features Americans in the final Champions League and Europa League qualifying rounds, several MLS matchups, and a couple games in the Championship, Liga MX, and Argentina to top it off. Let’s get into it!


  • Rangers v PSV, 3p on TUDN, fubo (free trial): Malik Tillman and James Sands lead Rangers against PSV in Champions League qualifying. Tillman has made quite the splash since arriving at Rangers, with goals in back-to-back games. Sands was out of the squad at the weekend after making multiple starts. Richy Ledezma was getting spot minutes for PSV, and started for them this weekend. He had to be substituted in the first half after being injured by a dangerous tackle.
