Weekend Preview: 7/17

Last gameday in La Liga and it comes with high stakes for one Mexican Abroad….

Weekend Schedule


Sporting Kansas City vs Colorado Rapids (8pm ET): Not sure how close Alan Pulido is to the Mexican National team but what else are you going to watch.


LA Galaxy vs LAFC (10:30pm ET): No Carlos Vela but Javier Hernandez aka Chicharito is still around. “El Trafico” will not feel the same without Carlitos but it should be fun to watch.


Real Valladolid vs Real Betis (12:30pm ET): Betis players (and new manager) are playing for next season already. They are floundering but cannot get relegated. The future for Andres Guardado and Diego Lainez is unknown but I hope Lainez gets some minutes in the season finales. At this point, I don’t care if those minutes are to show other teams or his new manager that he can play.


Napoli vs Udinese (1:30pm ET): A Europa League spot is still in play for Hirving Lozano. A mid-week start for Chucky saw him play 61 good minutes for Gatusso with 4 completed dribbles and 3 shots. Ojala Gatusso is starting to warm up to Chucky.

Atletico Madrid vs Real Sociedad (3pm ET): Hector Herrera and company do not have much to play for as they are locked into a Champions League Group Stage spot regardless of the result. Maybe Cholo can throw us a bone and let HH get his 12th league start.

Celta Vigo vs Espanyol (3pm ET): Nestor Araujo could be relegated after this weekend but his squad controls their own destiny. Their opponent is already getting relegated and Celta are 1 point above Leganes who are playing league champions, Real Madrid. Also, Celta Vigo own a better goal difference than Leganes, in case they end up equal on points. Mucha suerte Nestor!
