8/21/15 EPL Wk 3, Spanish and Italian leagues start, High School season is back, Indy 11 win- Full TV game Listings

So with the Spanish League (La Liga) and the Italian Serie A back in play this weekend all of the major soccer leagues across the world are back on line including local colleges and high school.  See previews below for the Serie A – will my precious Juventus win the league for a 5th straight time despite their shipping out Pirlo, Tevez and lots of other talent? (Buffon still minds the net).  Will the Milans Inter or AC come back to relevance in a league they have dominated over the years?  In Spain the La Liga has the usual suspects of Real Madrid and Barcelona battling at the top with Athletico, Valencia, and perhaps Sevilla battling for Champion’s League spots.  The season kicks off Saturday but TV coverage starts Sunday as Athletico travels to Barcelona at 12:30 on beIN Sports.

The EPL is back for week 3 with a doozy of a game on Monday 3 pm as undefeated Liverpool travel to Arsenal on NBCSN.  US Keeper Brad Guzan and Aston Villa face Crystal Palace Sat morning at 10 am on USA Network, while fellow keeper Tim Howard and Everton face Tottenham on NBCSN on Sunday at 10 am.

High School soccer has returned in Indy with multiple teams on the North side of Indy ranked – on the Girls Side its Fishers #1, Carmel #2, and Noblesville #3 while Brebeuf, Cathedral, Hamilton Southeastern and Guerin Catholic are all top 10.  On the boys side the top 10 includes Zionsville at #3, Carmel at #6, Fisher’s #9, and Guerin Catholic #10.  Carmel Girls have a 2 week home streak with games against Guerin 8/22, Fishers 8/29, Cathedral 8/29, and Pike 9/2. Catch the Carmel Invitational next weekend at Murray Stadium as 4 of the top 10 Girl’s teams in the state will play on Saturday 8/29.  The Carmel boys are home 8/25 vs Ben Davis and again 9/3.  Guerin Catholic boys has a string of 3 home games next week 8/25, 8/29 and 9/1.

Finally, congrats to the Indy 11 for their big win over Tampa Bay 2-0 on Wednesday night, it was actually the first win I have witnessed in person for our Indy 11.  In case you haven’t been – here is quick goal video from the BYB section behind the goal – the only place to take in a soccer game in my opinion.  The 11 move into a tie for 8th and take off on a 3 game road streak starting with Atlanta this Saturday night – catch the game on ESPN3 or these watch party locations.

Brad Guzan – Aston Villa at Crystal Palace (Saturday, 10 am on USA)

The US netminder pitched a pair of shutouts against Palace last season, but Villa failed to win the home game. Guzan has three clean sheet victories in his last five EPL road games, and his 1-0 win there last season snappe a Villas win drought at Selhurst Park that dated back to 1980.

Alfredo Morales – Ingolstadt vs. Borussia Dortmund (Sunday, 9:30 am on Fox Sports 1)

Having thoroughly enjoyed Ingolstadt’s Bundesliga coming out party away from home last week, Morales & Co. bring the show home for the fans. Both the midfielder and his club will be getting their first look at Dortmund. The Audi Boys will go without key defender Danilo, while the visitors are set to arrive without someone the American ordinarily would have run up against repeatedly, midfield ace Nuri Sahin.

11:00 a.m.,             Everton vs. Manchester City               NBCSN

Tim Howard – Everton vs. Manchester City (Sunday, 11 am on NBCSN)

After shutting down one of his favorite opponents at Southampton last weekend, Howard returns home trying to regain the upper hand in a series he had traditionally dominated until recently. Despite dropping his last three clshs with the Citizens, the Toffees backstop still holds a 10-7-2 all-time edge with six clean sheets thrown in for good measure. This time, Everton must go without star defender Leighton Baines.
