Ten to Track (Tuesday, 8/29)

1. Guadalajara vs. Santos Apertura – Copa MX

Both these teams are very likely to advance out of the Group Stage, given that the only other team in their pod hasn’t won a point yet.

B. Tijuana vs. Atalante Apertura – Copa MX

Tijuana should absolutely tee off against the Ascenso side. Pirate a stream to see arguably North America’s best club put on a show.

3. Cimarrones de Sonora vs. Queretaro – Apertura Copa MX

Queretaro isn’t a particularly good side in Liga MX, but Sonora hasn’t won a point yet.

4. U.A.E vs. Saudi Arabia – AFC World Cup qualifying

Looks like the hosts need to win their last two matches of this Group Stage to advance. Saudi Arabia is in 2nd there.

5. Blackpool vs. Wigan Athletic – EFL Trophy

Check out the new static Vocab page for competition definitions in brief.

Blackpool was just promoted from League Two to League one, while Wigan just got relegated from from the Championship to League One. Noob thinks Wigan might be more focused on league play, picks The Tangerines.

6. Coventry City vs. Shrewsbury Town – EFL Trophy

Coventry are the reigning champions of this event, but Shrewsbury had the better league season last year.

7. Curico Unido vs. Palestino – Copa Chile

Curico won the B league last year, but Palestino played excellent A-ball and should handle the cake-makers. Cake-makers? I was considering Adoption, but didn’t find why they are called such. What I -did- find by accident was the slang definition of the term. Noob tries to run a clean house. Google up that if you’re so inclined. But wow, be warned.

8. Bankstown Berries vs. Sydney FC – Australian FFA Cup

This is the only major football association cup played in Oz. Bankstown merely competes in the second-best league in New South Wales (third-highest in the country’s overall league system). They should get housed by defending champions A-League “Harbor City Originals”.

9. Queens Park Rangers vs. AFC Bournemouth – club friendly

Noob doesn’t understand why teams are playing friendlies during their league seasons. But maybe my Cherries have a fighting chance, even on the road, against the second-tier Rangers. No, Noob is not bitter about the extra-time goal they gave up over the weekend to lose. Not.

10. Malaysia U23 vs. Thailand U23 – Southeast Asian Games

Final! The host Malaysians could be seen has coasting here, but Noob predicts this doesn’t get decided in the first 90 minutes.
