Most-watched soccer games in the USA: February 5-11, 2024

The viewership numbers in the USA for soccer matches held between the 5th and 11th of February are in, and to no one's surprise, the Premier League and Liga MX take the top three spots on the podium.

However, the numbers suffered a dip, with no game reaching the one million mark. This is understandable as the Super Bowl dominated the weekend, but there was still room for the English and Mexican top flights, with Newcastle's 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest taking the top spot. A total of 724,000 average viewers tuned in to NBC to catch this fixture as the Magpies secured a much-needed victory.

The runners-up spot went to the Premier League as well. However, the USA Network received the honors, with their coverage of Manchester United's thrilling 2-1 victory away to Aston Villa garnering an audience of 609,000.

And finally, we have our Liga MX appearance, with Monterrey making the cut thanks to their 3-2 victory over Pachuca. Just under 600,00 average viewers tuned in to Univision, with Rayados maintaining their grip on the top spot.

Manchester City vs. Chelsea live this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET on NBC, Telemundo, Telemundo Deportes En Vivo, UNIVERSO, and Peacock

Reigning champions Manchester City will have a tricky test this Saturday as they host Chelsea. The last time these two clubs met, they played out a thrilling 4-4 draw but Guardiola's side cannot afford a similar slip-up. The Cityzens have Arsenal hot on their heels and need to make up ground on current leaders Liverpool. Chelsea, on the other hand, continue to struggle in the top flight but have performed admirably well against the big boys and will be aiming for another upset. 

Burnley vs. Arsenal live this Saturday at 10 a.m. ET on the USA Network, Universo, Universo NOW, Telemundo Deportes En Vivo, and the NBC Sports App

Our final weekend game is another Premier League tie, this time involving Arsenal. The Gunners travel to Burnley on the back of outstanding back-to-back wins over Liverpool and West Ham, beating them 3-1 and 6-0 respectively. Nonetheless, Arteta's men are still two points behind Liverpool and while they are level with Man City, Guardiola's men have a game in hand, meaning the North London giants have another disadvantage to overcome. Don't miss this game.

This week in women's soccer, February 16, February 22, D1 Feminine, FA Women's Cup, Frauen-Bundesliga, Serie A, Liga F 

Plenty of mouth-watering games are taking place this weekend, especially over in England and Spain.

Here is all you need to know ahead of another week of women's soccer. 

What to watch in women's soccer: February 16 to February 18


Fans are in for a real treat, as the next round of games kicks off on Friday with a top-of-the-table clash. Chelsea, who are the reigning champions, will be traveling to face Manchester City in what could shake things up in the title race. At the moment, the Blues do have a three-point lead over their upcoming opponents, but that could change if City pick up a win in Friday's must-see tie.

On Saturday, Arsenal will be looking to once again get back on track when they host Manchester United. The Gunners saw their FA Cup dreams go up in smoke after losing to Manchester City in the fifth round last weekend, and come into their upcoming tie sitting six points behind league leaders Chelsea. However, they just may be able to force their way into the title race if they can pick up a crucial win over the Red Devils - and will also need Manchester City to throw a spanner in the works and do likewise against Chelsea.


Matchday 14 in the 2023/24 Frauen-Bundesliga kicks off with a clash starring two sides that are pretty much at opposite ends of the table: RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt. Leipzig currently sit in tenth, two points above the drop zone, and will obviously need a win to get themselves out of a very tough situation. Meanwhile, Eintracht Frankfurt find themselves in third and saw their four-match winning streak snapped last round following a heavy 3-0 defeat to title-chasing Wolfsburg. It goes without saying that Frankfurt will look to take advantage of Leipzig's woes as a win would help them pull within three points of Wolfsburg - for 24 hours, at least.

Speaking of Wolfsburg, they, too, will be facing a relegation-threatened side this weekend. Nürnberg, who are one of several sides battling the drop, will now have the rather difficult task of trying to contain a Wolfsburg side who have lost just once this season. Should Wolfsburg, as many expect, win that tie, they will temporarily leap-frog Bayern Munich back into top spot ahead of their title challengers' clash against struggling Essen later this weekend.

Liga F

After a surprise result from their last game, all eyes will be on Barcelona as the Blaugrana face Atletico Madrid this weekend. There will be no perfect season for Barcelona, who dropped points in a 1-1 draw against Levante, but are still nine points clear of Real Madrid in the race for the Liga F title. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid, who held their cross-town rivals to a stalemate last round, come into this contest sitting in fifth spot and have won just one of their last five matches.

Real Madrid, for their part, will naturally aim to get back to winning ways when they take on a Granadilla Tenerife side who have picked up just four points from their last five, while Levante's 1-1 draw with Barcelona will certainly inspire them in their upcoming match against Eibar as they chase a Champions League football spot for next season.

What to watch in women's soccer: February 19 to February 22


There will be some international soccer matches taking place starting this week as the inaugural CONCACAF W Gold Cup gets underway. A total of 12 teams will be taking part: eight from CONCACAF and four invited representatives from CONMEBOL.

Some of CONCACAF's representatives include the USWNT, who are hosting the event, as well as Canada, Mexico, Panama, and Costa Rica. Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, and Paraguay will be representing South America in this competition.

The group stages of the competition get underway on February 20th, starting with Group A which includes the USWNT, Argentina, and Mexico. Group B, which includes Brazil, Panama, and Colombia, kicks off its group stage matches on February 21st while Group C, which includes Canada, gets its group stage games underway on February 22nd.

Top news in women's soccer

Barcelona's long-standing home record comes to an end

As the saying goes, "All good things come to an end". That certainly applies to Barcelona, who have established themselves as one of the top sides in women's soccer over the past decade. Prior to their meeting with Levante on Wednesday, the Blaugrana had made another perfect start to the season and had yet to drop points in a home game since...2019.

Yes, that's right. Barcelona were on a 79-match winning streak on home turf across all competitions, but despite taking the lead, Levante struck back in the 55th minute and managed to hang on for a 1-1 draw. The reigning Liga F champions still do have a comfortable lead over the chasing pack, but certainly will be under a little bit of pressure to avoid dropping points when they face Atletico Madrid this weekend.

Lena Oberdorf becomes most expensive German football player

She might be young, but Lena Oberdorf has already received plenty of plaudits for her excellent showings in the middle of the park. Thus, it is no surprise that Bayern Munich have decided to spend big to prise her away from rival club Wolfsburg. According to reports, Bayern paid just under $500,000 to secure the German international on a contract that is set to run until 2028 and certainly will do wonders to boost their ambitions to challenge for titles over the next few seasons.

At the moment, Wolfsburg are second in the league behind Bayern, and as such, Oberdorf, who has already won several titles with her current side, will be inspired to help them clinch one more before she leaves this summer. The 22-year-old was part of the Wolfsburg team that were narrowly beaten 3-2 by Barcelona in last season's UEFA Women's Champions League final. She was also a key part of Germany's squad at the Women's EURO competition in 2022, and was named as the best-performing young player in that tournament.

Saudi Arabian investors ready to make offer to buy AS Roma

Roma's fate changed in 2020 when the Friedkin group purchased the club to fuel it with new ideas, fresh money, and some top-caliber signings. Now, the club could head into a new direction thanks to a new offer by a powerful Saudi Arabian investor.

The Saudi General Entertainment Authority, led by Turki Alalshikh, had already entered negotiations with the Friedkin group last summer to buy the club, but despite a hefty $900M offer, Roma's American owners decided to keep control of the Serie A side.

Now, a new bid surpassing the $1B mark may be tempting enough for the American investors to sell the Giallorossi, who are struggling to find their feet this season after two and a half years under Jose Mourinho. Read more…

Mbappe tells PSG he plans to leave as saga draws to close

France captain Kylian Mbappe has told officials at Paris Saint-Germain that he intends to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season, a source close to the Ligue 1 champions said on Thursday. 

The 25-year-old, who arrived in Paris from Monaco in 2017, had extended his contract in 2022 until 2024 but last summer declined to activate a clause allowing him to stay another year at PSG.

Mbappe has been widely tipped to move to Real Madrid and, according to a source close to the matter, has already entered negotiations with the Spanish giants. Read more…

Man City fret over Grealish after injury blow

Pep Guardiola is sweating over Jack Grealish's fitness after the Manchester City winger limped off during his side's Champions League win against FC Copenhagen.

Grealish was substituted with a groin problem in the first half of the holders' 3-1 victory in the last 16 first leg in Denmark on Tuesday.

City playmaker Bernardo Silva also came off with an ankle knock, but it was Grealish's injury that caused the most concern for City boss Guardiola. Read more…

Haller hits winner as Ivory Coast beat Nigeria to take AFCON title

Sebastien Haller scored a dramatic late winner as hosts Ivory Coast fought back to beat Victor Osimhen's Nigeria 2-1 in Sunday's Africa Cup of Nations final and complete the most remarkable of major tournament turnarounds by claiming their third continental title.

Nigeria looked set to repeat their 1-0 victory over the Ivorians here at the Ebimpe Olympic Stadium during the group stage when captain William Troost-Ekong -– who had netted a penalty to decide that first meeting -– rose to head in the opener late in the first half.

However, Franck Kessie equalised just after the hour mark and Haller turned in Simon Adingra's cross in the 81st minute to spark wild celebrations among the sea of orange in the Abidjan stands. Read more…

Qatar beat Jordan to retain Asian Cup with Afif hat-trick

Hosts Qatar retained the Asian Cup with a 3-1 win on Saturday against surprise packages Jordan as Akram Afif scored a hat-trick of penalties.

It was a fitting final act to a month of football that began with 24 teams and witnessed a series of dramatic games and plenty of goals.

It will also help dispel the memories of Qatar's 2022 World Cup, when they lost all three games, the worst record of any host in the competition's history.

Playing in front of 86,492 spectators at Lusail Stadium, which staged the World Cup final 14 months ago, Jordan were in their first Asian Cup final and contesting the biggest match in their history. Read more…
