This week features the knockout rounds of the 2024 CONCACAF W Gold Cup, plus games from France and England.

After a pause due to some international fixtures, many of the world's top leagues in women's football get back underway this week, including in England and France.

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

What to watch in women's football: March 1 to March 3

D1 Féminine

In France, Lyon continue to lead the way, but the defending champions showed that they are not totally infallible after dropping two points in a 1-1 draw against PSG last month. Still, the highly-decorated side continue to boast a seven-point lead over the chasing pack and will naturally look to avoid seeing that cut down any further when they take on Dijon on Sunday. However, with PSG in action a day earlier against  Le Havre on Saturday, Lyon could indeed see their lead reduced to four before they take to the pitch later this weekend.

Women's Super League

The Women's Super League resumes this weekend as Manchester City welcome Everton. The Cityzens could move into top spot with a win in Saturday's fixture, as they are currently sitting in second spot,  but are tied on points with league leaders and reigning WSL champions Chelsea. Meanwhile, Everton recently ended a four match losing streak by beating West Ham 2-0 in their last match before the break, but they are expected to face an even tougher test against title aspirants City this weekend.

As for Chelsea, who were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City prior to the international break, the Blues will be in action on Sunday on the road against Leicester City. There will be a lot of pressure on the reigning title holders to get things right in this game, as it is possible they could find themselves in second spot even before they get on the pitch with the City-Everton game taking place over 24 hours later.

Third-placed Arsenal, who sit three points behind Chelsea and Manchester City, will be looking to keep their foot in the title door race when they lock horns with Tottenham in the first of Sunday's batch of games. The Gunners recently earned a 3-1 win over Manchester United to remain within touching distance of the top two teams, but will need to continue picking up points in order to have a fighting chance at pipping either Chelsea or Manchester City to the coveted title.

Fans in the USA can catch many of these games on TV via CBS Sports Network or live-stream games via Paramount+.


The quarter-finals of the inaugural CONCACAF W Gold Cup get underway this weekend with a series of double-headers. On Saturday, the knockout rounds commence with a tie featuring Canada and Costa Rica, followed up by an intriguing all-CONMEBOL clash starring Brazil and Argentina.

Many eyes will be on Sunday's games, especially the USWNT's tie against Colombia, which will kick off at 10:15 pm EST (7:15 pm PST) as the Stars and Stripes hope to regain their footing after a shock result from matchday three of the group stages. Before that game, Mexico will take on Paraguay, with La Tri certainly brimming with confidence after finishing top of Group A.

Viewers in the USA have quite a few options to follow several of these games, including live-streaming via Paramount+ and ESPN+, while Spanish-speakers can tune in to ESPN Deportes to watch on TV.

USWNT suffer shock loss in CONCACAF W Gold Cup

It has not been the easiest past year or so for the UWSNT. Last summer saw them dumped out at the round of 16 at a World Cup for the first time in team history, and now, the Stars and Stripes will come into their upcoming CONCACF W Cup tie having suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Mexico on matchday three of the group stages. 

The defeat to La Tri ended several impressive records the USWNT had held. Prior to that game, they were boasting a 16 match winning streak against Mexico, with clean sheets in their most recent six. Second, Team USA had lost just one of their last 42 meetings versus La Tri (W40 D1) and were unbeaten in their last 80 home games against CONCACAF opponents dating back to December 2000.

Third, California appeared to be a good luck charm for Team USA, who had not lost when playing in the Golden State in their last 55 games (W51 D4). However, that all came crashing down on Monday evening, and now, many eyes will be on how the USWNT recover as they prepare to face Colombia on Sunday.
