October 31, 2018 By Ali M.
New York City vs Philadelphia Union, Dallas vs Portland Timbers, Palmeiras vs Boca Juniors, West Ham vs Tottenham, Chelsea vs Derby County, Arsenal vs Blackpool, and AC Milan vs Genoa comprise our top seven matches to stream and watch on Wednesday.

MLS Cup Playoffs - Watch these

New York City vs Philadelphia Union

Kick-off for this playoff is at 19:00 ET/23:00 GMT on MLS Live, SiriusXM FC, WPHL-TV PHL17, Fox Sports, UniMás, and Univision in the USA; Sky Sports in the UK; MLS Live, TSN, and TVA Sports in Canada; and beIN Sports in Australia.

Philadelphia Union will travel to the Yankee Stadium to face a familiar foe in the knockout round of the MLS Cup Playoffs. The U finished sixth in the Eastern Conference, a standing which was a direct result of their 3-1 loss to none other than the Cityzens.

The Union's head coach gives his thoughts on today's game 

The Union found themselves 2-0 down after only 10 minutes due to an abysmal first half, eventually losing that tie to drop to sixth - they could have won the number three seed. Instead, David Villa and Co. finished in third and will be hoping to make it back-to-back wins over their opponent.

Dallas vs Portland Timbers 

The second of today's two MLS Cup Playoffs kicks off at 21:30 ET/01:30 GMT on SiriusXM FC, UniMás, ESPN+, Univision, Root Sports Northwest, and MLS Live in the USA; Sky Sports in the UK; TSN and MLS Live in Canada; and beIN Sports in Canada.

This knockout round tie will be an interesting one. The Timbers failed to achieve the home-field advantage on Decision Day due to their 2-1 loss in Vancouver. As a result, they will have the handicap of traveling to Texas to face their opponent.

However, Dallas has shown signs of slowing down as of late. They lost on Decision Day as well and have suffered three consecutive defeats ahead of Wednesday's crucial game. Their form has taken a plunge recently but will give it their all, nonetheless, in order to book a ticket to the semis.

Copa Libertadores semi-final - Superclásico loading?

Palmeiras vs Boca Juniors

There is only one Copa Libertadores semi-final game remaining - Palmeiras vs Boca Juniors. Kick-off is at 20:45 ET/00:45 GMT on FOX Soccer Match Pass in the USA; SBS in Australia; SporTV and FOX Sports 1 Brasil in Brazil; and Fox Sports Cono Sur in Argentina.

With River Plate having already booked their spot in the final after their surprise win over defending champion Gremio, fans could now be in for Superclásico in the ultimate game. All that is left is for Boca Juniors to book their ticket. They travel to Palmeiras in the second-leg and must hold on to their 2-0 advantage from the first-leg in order to set up a tie with their bitter rival.

Carabao Cup - Get ready for an action-packed Wednesday

West Ham vs Tottenham

The English League Cup brings this London derby scheduled at 15:45 ET/19:45 GMT on SiriusXM FC and ESPN+ in the USA; BBC Radio 5 Live Extra and TalkSport Radio UK in the United Kingdom; DAZN in Canada; and beIN Sports in Australia.

This round of 16 tie pins two London Premier League outfits against each other. For Tottenham, this will be their second Olympic Stadium visit, having won 1-0 there in the English top-flight. They head into this clash off the back of their home loss to Man City and would not want to follow up on that result with a Carabao Cup exit. As for the Hammers, they are without a win in three games and will be keen to put that run to an end on Wednesday. Tune in to find out who'll emerge triumphant.

Chelsea vs Derby County

Kick-off for this game is also at 15:45 ET/19:45 GMT on ESPN+; Sky Sports, Talksport 2 Radio UK, and BBC Radio 5 Live in the UK; DAZN in Canada; and beIN Sports in Canada.

After beating his former manager, Frank Lampard will now have a shot at beating his former club when his Derby County side faces Chelsea in the League Cup. The Englishman will also return to his former game, as this game will be played at Stamford Bridge.

The former English midfielder admitted that he would not celebrate if his current team scores against his former employers. He also said that he's excited to return to the place he called home for so many years.

Arsenal vs Blackpool

This game also begins at 15:45 ET/19:45 GMT and will be aired on ESPN+ in the USA; DAZN in Canada; and beIN Sports in Australia.

Arsenal recently saw their winning streak come to an end over the weekend, having drawn 2-2 at Crystal Palace on Sunday. However, they still have not suffered a defeat since August 18 and will be aiming to maintain that form against Blackpool.

Let's not forget about Serie A

AC Milan vs Genoa

Kick-off for this game is at 15:30 ET/19:30 GMT on ESPN+ in the USA; Eleven Sports 1 UK in the United Kingdom; DAZN and TLN in Canada; beIN Sports Connect in Australia; and Sky Italia in Italy.

This game will be crucial as it could affect both teams' European aspirations. For AC Milan, victory would see them leapfrog Lazio in fourth due to their better goal difference. For Genoa, a win would see them climb to fifth and a point behind the last Champions League spot.

Today's big headlines

Real Madrid ready to go all out for Pochettino

Real Madrid is without a permanent manager at the moment, with Florentino Perez favoring Mauricio Pochettino ahead of interim boss Santiago Solari. The club president knows it will be difficult to lure the Argentine away from Tottenham and is thus reportedly willing to double his wages in a five-year difficult worth a total of $108M.

Things got crazy in the first Copa Libertadores semi-final

River Plate beat defending champion Gremio to book their spot in the final. The Argentine club was awarded a late controversial penalty with the help of VAR which helped them eliminate the Brazilian outfit. That decision did not go down well, as riot police had to step in to protect the referee.
