What's going on? Everybody railroad here It's Wednesday night in the international break is over and we're back to talk about football, not football.
Welcome to kicking it where we break down all the biggest news around.
Well, the other football that's known around the world where they play with a round ball with their feet also known a soccer here in North America.
Thank you for tuning on in here, here on the ray route Network live on sportscast.
Appreciate you all who are coming in and saying hello and learning a little bit more about the beautiful game.
So this week, man, we're gonna be, of course, looking at the Premier League games coming up this weekend.
We're gonna be looking at the Bundesliga games as always.
But we got a little bit something special tonight because next week Yes, people, you heard me next week, you ate the Champions League kicks off again.
How excited is are you for that? And I'm just thrilled that this is a thing right now.
So let's start talking about the champions.
We've been talking about some of the bigger games that gonna be happening throughout the week.
Some of the bigger teams like civilian A vs Chelsea.
That's happening next Tuesday.
Gonna be a tough game.
It's a tough thing to pick the spreads.
Uh, they got them pretty Even.
The money line is kind of looking at a plus 2.
41 for civilian.
The over under is two and three quarters expecting a lot of goals in this game.
The game is in civilian now.
How much that matters right now with the lack of crowds and all that kind of stuff.
Well, you know, we have to wait and see and see how that all kind of plays out, but basically it is what it is.
I'm gonna go with Chelsea for this game.
Civilian won the Europa last year and all that kind of stuff, But I just think that Chelsea is the better team.
I think that they're gonna prove to be better.
Um, they've got a lot to prove to themselves in this tournament.
Obviously the winners back in 2011 a lot of Chelsea fans still hanging on to those glory moments.
I don't think Chelsea actually has a chance this year in the Premier League they're gonna have to do in the Champions League.
I'm gonna take them to win this game. Other game.
I'm looking at his brush adornment vs Lazio Roma again It's Ah again, You're laying a lot of things, man.
Brosa Dortmund is the favorite for this game from about a half a 0.
3 and a quarter is the is the over under on the game.
That's absolutely insane.
I am gonna go with dormant to win this game because I believe that they're just a much, much better team.
Lipstick is gonna be taken on instant ball lipstick.
Uh, well, you know, it's it's a tighter game than you think.
Uh, but lipstick is the favorite for the game.
I'm gonna take Red Bull lipstick to win this game.
One of the games that I'm looking the most forward to comes against Manchester United taking on Paris Saint German.
You know, Manu has not had the greatest start to their Bundesliga season or to their start Bundesliga. Oh, sorry.
Sorry to the English Premier League this season.
Parents age a man. Of course.
They're gonna want revenge after losing in the finals.
One nil to Bayern Munich.
Um the making this game a lot closer The over under is three.
I'm probably gonna take the over.
I think a lot of goals gonna be scored, but I think they're gonna be scored by parents ST Germane.
I'm not I just can't take Manchester United.
They haven't showed me enough.
I'm going with Manchester United in this game.
Another game I wanna look at Is Liverpool taking on I ax over in Amsterdam? Um, Liverpool right now is the heavy favorite for this game.
Three and a quarter over under.
I'm taking the over in this game.
I think Liverpool is going to score a lot of goals.
Um, you know, I got to say that I to me, Liverpool never really bounced back since to shut down.
You've kind of been waiting for them to take those next steps and we haven't seen them take those next steps.
Uh, but I believe that they're gonna be roaring to play this game.
I act is to me not a strong team anymore.
They used to be a team you talked about a lot in the Champions League.
I don't see them is that kind of team anymore? I'm gonna be going with Liverpool to win this game and then look, the game I'm gonna be glued to on Wednesday is Atletico Madrid hosting my boys Bayern Munich? Um, Bayern Munich, actually a slight, slight underdog and there are slight, slight favorite in this game.
Believe it or not, you gotta lay 100 $116 to 100 bucks.
Um, look, the over under is three.
Both teams score a lot of gold.
Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga has not showed up since their first week.
They blown a lot of games.
Even when you look back at the Super Cup against Dortmund, they were up to nail.
They let doorman come back all the way to 21 and it took kind of, ah, freak slash really talented goal by Joshua Kim.
Mixto win the game.
But Byron to me, you know, my dad said it to me this weekend and I made a whole lot of sense.
He said, You know, a team like buying when you're playing in that you're playing in that run for the Champions League, you're playing in a couple of Super Cups, the Buddhist League.
It can feel a bit a bit like a let down a little bit of a House League.
I think they're going to step up for the champions either.
The defending champions five titles still got the club World Cup coming up.
I'm taken by a Munich to beat Madrid in Madrid.
You got Inter Milano taking on Boylston Munchengladbach Um Moenchengladbach are the big favorites in this game.
Over under's two and three quarters.
It's gonna be a It's gonna be a tough game for both teams, but I'm gonna go with a black glove back.
I'm really looking forward to its FC Porto vs Manchester City. It's import.
Oh, uh, you know, Portal is one of those teams that got a lot of history behind them.
Really, really solid.
And in the sort of mid two thousands kind of been forgotten about still a really solid team in Portugal.
Manchester City Pep Guardiola on the hot seat.
Even though they're they're they're a huge favorite for this game.
I'm calling the upset.
I'm taking Porto beat Man City in in Portugal.
Of course, we're gonna have Olympic verse Olympic.
Oh, so, um, Marcil versus periods, I'm going to take Marisol toe win this game as the upset on.
That's really the big games that I wanted to watch.
Right now, when you look at the favorites to win this tournament, Liverpool there with a plus 5 50 Real Madrid are Ah, Bayern Munich with plus 400 Manchester City with plus 402 of the top teams toe.
To go forward into this game or into this league.
Really, I'm really excited about the Champions League starting back up again and I'm really hoping you know you EFA has has considered moving the knockout stages in a single game knockouts.
I hope that's direction they go.
I think it brought some really good football from every team.
I mean, when you look at a pair of Santa Man when they came all the way back against Atlanta, Um, you know, we saw Bayern Munich and Barcelona and Bayern Munich just lay on those goals.
Paris Saint German was all over it.
Um, I'd really just like to see them build upon what they built upon with that single game knockout.
But let's get into the Premier League.
We're gonna look at every game going on in the Premier League this weekend, starting on Saturday.
The first game gonna be a cracker if there was ever a cracker before Liverpool.
FC versus Everton.
Everton obviously sitting atop the Premier League right now Liverpool are the slight favorites again.
I don't think that Liverpool has really lived up to the expectations since the the start up sent to restart up of last season which was like in Joel.
You know, I think July or August now when did they re set up? July June? Look, I've picked Everton toe win the league this year.
That's been my sleeper pick all year.
Was for Everton to win the league.
Probably a long shot, probably.
You know what? Maybe I'm gonna like an idiot at the end of the year, but I'm gonna take Everton to be Liverpool in Liverpool, Um, as the underdogs in this game and there are plus 2 71.
I'm going to take I'm taking Liverpool to win this game.
Mhm Everton to win this game and the over under is three.
I think a lot of goals scored.
I'm taking you over on the three.
on Saturday got Southampton vs Chelsea Chelsea the pretty big favorites in this game at minus two of four, minus 1 33 on the spread The over under is three again.
I haven't been overly impressed with Chelsea and how they've looked.
I live by the A B C's of football, anybody but Chelsea.
So I know that I can be a little biased to them from time to time.
When I break down this game.
No, they're much better.
Team the South Hams that I got to take Chelsea to win this game 12:30 p.
You're gonna have ****nal versus Manchester City ****nal having a hell of a start to their season.
Um, you know, and I think when it comes ****nal were sitting here right now, like, is this ****nal team going to keep it up? Right? Are they gonna fall off? They didn't look good coming off of the restart.
All of a sudden, they win the community shield over Liverpool and things are starting to look a little bit on for them.
They're three of the 3011 to start this season.
They're in fourth place there in a Champions League spot, right now Manchester City.
They've had a bit of a rough start to their season.
They're sitting like down in 14th at 11 and one.
Pep is gonna really want push this team forward.
But I'm taking ****nal, man, I'm really I'm excited and happy about what I've seen out of this team going forward.
I'm taking ****nal to win this game.
Then you got Manchester United taking on Newcastle United.
Newcastle, of course, is my pit, one of my picks to be relegated this year, there to one and one, a little bit of a better performance that I may be originally gave them.
I think that Manchester United is the better team, but again it's been such a sort of a pathetic go for them lately.
I don't know if I if I feel comfortable picking them to win a game because we've just seen them play so badly.
I'm gonna go with Man United on Lee because I feel like I have to.
But if they don't come through for me this week, I may never be able to take them again.
If I'm gonna be honest with you, eso that's the 3 p.
Eastern time games.
That's the late game in the afternoon.
So I might be golfing by that point.
I mean, I mean, we'll watch the game, but I will watch the replay on his own later on.
Then we get into Sunday morning.
Eastern time. You got Fulham vs Sheffield United.
Uh, cracker of a game.
That's gonna be, uh, full.
I'm sitting in dead last in 20th place and Owen four and Sheffield right behind them at O and four.
Neither team has picked up a point.
Here's the thing.
One of them has to pick up a point.
Maybe they draw and they both picked up a point.
The draw is a plus to 18 on this game, and I might be going for it.
The over under is two and a quarter.
I'm taking the overall.
I'm taking the under on the game, and I might go with the draw.
But if I had to pick a flat out winner Oh, my God.
Um oh, gosh, uh, it's a coin toss, man.
I'll take full in because of the home team.
I mean, that's the only thing I can think of right now.
like it's, uh, cool.
They're both so bad.
And there's just such what an awful game that's gonna be.
So yeah, I'll take full of the minus 1 31.
I'm not laying any money on it.
I I'm gonna lay money on the money line.
I'm probably gonna take the draw at 9 a.
We got Brighton vs Crystal Palace.
Um, Crystal Palace is two and two on the season.
Bright inside a pretty, um, I would call it a I would call it a positive start to their season, right.
I mean, they're one in three, but they've been in every game they've played in.
Ah, this should actually be a pretty good game.
Uh, 200 quarters, you over under.
Both teams like to score goals.
I'm gonna go with Brightened to win this game.
Even though Crystal Palace is I mean, they both started.
I've been really impressed with bright, and I'm gonna go with Bright and win this game at 11.
You got West Ham united taking on taught in them, um, again, two teams that I think that both teams uh, West Ham sitting at two and two, I think taught.
And I'm sitting at 21 and 12 teams.
I think that hoped they would have had better starts to their season.
Eso I'm not 100% sure Which way this game could go very, very tight on the spread.
The spread is one.
The over under is three goals.
The money lines are pretty tight.
I'm gonna lean towards, uh, taught in them because I think they should be the better team they got.
You know, they've They've got Gareth Bale back.
I'm gonna take taught in them.
But again, two teams that I think we're wishing that they would have started this season a little bit better and maybe giving themselves a little bit of a better chance to do something.
Moving forward a 2:15 p.m. Eastern time.
We got Aston Villa versus Leicester City, Leicester City.
Big favorites in this game over Aston Villa.
Uh, doesn't surprise me at all.
Leicester City is the team.
Ever since they won the league, they're sitting in third place or three and one on the year.
Um really, really impressed.
Other starting the season I thought after they won the premier Li.
We probably like, never hear them. I ever see them again.
I know that Aston Villa is three.
You know, I think they're playing a little bit over their head.
I'm taking last the city to win.
This game should be a good game, though.
Unfortunately, that's gonna be right in the middle of the Patriots games.
I won't be able to watch it, but I'll definitely be watching at least the extended highlights after to see how that game plays out.
Then you got on Monday the 19th.
So you've got Burnley taking on West Bram West prom is actually a big favorite in this game.
Look, I mean, this could be a little bit of a challenge for both teams.
You know, Burnley sitting in 18th place right now.
In three West Problem is only a one in three.
So it's not like you.
Just two crackers.
I'm gonna go with Burnley to win this game.
To be honest with you, I'm gonna take the I'm gonna take the underdogs in this game.
I'm not impressed with West Brom's whatsoever.
Uh, then you've got the Wanderers, right? You got Wolverhampton taking on Leeds United Leeds United is the team that I'm throwing my weight behind this year.
Uh, still going to get my hands on a lead. United Jersey.
They're the big favorites for this game.
I'm taking them to beat West Ham are to beat Wolverhampton.
I mean lead to sitting right now in eighth place there to one and one.
They got seven points on the year.
I don't expect them to win the league, but now I'm starting to think about you know, you were Europa a little bit.
Maybe Champions League.
Um, can they catch up with Liverpool's the ****nals again? I asked him, Villa playing a little bit over their head.
I've been been impressed.
I mean, leads coming out there playing very entertaining football.
I'm taking them to win this game and then s Oh, yeah, I'm taking them and then that's it, man.
And then that's it until the 23rd.
So should be a good game.
Good weekend of Premier League games if you're a soccer fan, I mean, after what we saw, what was it two weeks ago? Uh, not last week, the weekend before, with just all those goals getting scored.
Uh, just between Liverpool and Manchester United.
And all the things just absolutely insane.
Watching that game is one of most insane weekends of soccer I ever watched in my life.
Um, I don't know if this weekend's gonna live up to that, but after the international break, it's always great to go back into it.
I'm going to tell you, when I was getting up on the weekends and I had nothing to watch in the morning, it was killing me.
So being able to turn on the television and watch the Premier League Bundesliga excites me to the fullest.
Andi Okay, so let's head over to the Bundesliga now.
In preview, those games for the day we got at 9:30 a.m.
Eastern time. A lot of 9. 30 games.
You got brushed.
The doorman taking on Hoffenheim Brosa doorman.
The big favorite should be the big favorites.
Uh, not the greatest start to their season.
Drop the big game.
A couple of weeks ago, they lost the community shield to buy a Munich.
Of course not something that they're gonna wanna make a habit of.
Uh, I think that they're looking to bounce back in, really come out strong.
They're sitting in fifth place right now in to a 116 points.
I'm gonna take board.
Uh, look, Hoffenheim is sitting there both fighting right now for the for Europa.
Um, or qualification.
Sorry. I believe qualifications.
No, they're sitting for Europa League right now.
Um, I think that they're gonna want to try to catch up like lipstick sitting in first place.
Not surprising, Ostberg sitting in second.
That's gonna go away really very, very shortly.
Uh, doesn't probably enrich Frankfurter sitting there very tight.
1st 277 places, all separated by one point.
I'm going to take Russia dormant.
They're gonna improve the three on one half, and I'm gonna come back down to Earth a little bit.
Um, and they're gonna fall to, too, and two on the season.
Then you got vertebrae.
Man versus Freiburg.
Look, Freiberg has been an interesting team there. 11 and one.
They've had some very.
They played some very exciting football over the over things.
I've watched the I think I've watched all three of their games this year, and it's been pretty good, and, uh, they're gonna be playing a much improved verte Bremen team vertebrae, man is the big favorite going into this game, and I'm gonna have to go with the favorite.
I think that vertebrae man has that opportunity to really kind of lay it in there and start establishing themselves as a good team in the bonus league.
Um, you know, one thing I'm liking about this league this year, even though I'm a Bayern Munich fan and I love when, you know, they just take over is that there's a lot of teams kind of enriching themselves and making this more than a one dog race.
And, of course, with with Red Bull lipstick endor*****t always in there and I'm rich Frankfurt was really some God competition.
Eso Look, we're gonna have the battle for who's gonna be moving up in the standings.
You got Oxford taking on, um, lip sick man.
They actually have, uh, lipstick is a slight favorite in this game.
The money line doesn't say the same thing.
There's gonna be a lot of goals scored.
Like I said, Achterberg needs to come back down to Earth.
They're not a second place team.
Lipsticks gonna keep ahold.
They're gonna improve the three and one and three Wanna know, Keep a hold on the first place in the Bundesliga for the week.
Three are for this fourth week of games.
And yeah, I don't see a scenario where Oxford could be lipstick game that I'm not looking forward to.
It all is Buyer Lubick, labor cousin versus Mains Main, sitting in 17th place Leverkusen sitting in 14th place.
Neither team has a win.
Um, you know and Byerly because in like, they lost habits, habits that went ha very.
It's that went over to Chelsea.
Got rid of their players.
It's a dead even split.
I'm gonna take labor cost because it's in labor, Houston.
But I wouldn't even be surprised in this game.
Ends of draw aan den.
We're gonna move into the final 9:30 a.
Eastern time game and it stood guard versus Hertha Berlin again stood guard.
A team that used to be very well, reknowned in the Bundesliga.
They're sitting in eighth place, that 11 and one.
They got relegated a couple years ago.
Hertha Berlin, sitting in 13th, their 10 and to Stuttgart is a slight favorite in this game.
I'm gonna lean with stood guard.
I think that They're the better team.
They should beat Berlin on.
Then you got on Ah, 12:30 p.m.
On Saturday, you got Bayern Munich taking on on field Belfield Armenia. Belfield.
Um I mean, you, Belfield.
I think they're 11 and one on the season.
Bayern Munich or two? Oh, and one had a tough loss two weeks ago, Bounce didn't really bounce back. Gave up, bleeds.
Uh, they've had the international break now.
Had a little bit of a thing.
I know that Sunday is still out, and I think one of the more concerning things with Robert Lewandowski left the Poland game injured, which is obviously not good for for Munich.
And I was really hoping that Byron wouldn't let their international stars go even the German ones.
Uh, just because they've played so much soccer in the last little bit that I wanted them to be able just kind of chill a bit.
Well, we're gonna see Douglas Costa and some of the new players for Bayern.
Uh, come and, uh, come up and do things and I'm gonna take Bayern Munich to win this game s So there's they're they're they're pretty big favorites.
They should score a lot of goals.
I'm even gonna take the over on three and three quarters.
I think that more than four goal is gonna be scored.
I got Bayern Munich winning this game a 2:30 p.
You got Wolfsburg hosting breasted munchengladbach.
Look, Wolfsburg has not been the same team since they had a team of work.
Uh, taking on Munchengladbach who's 11 and one.
I think they've underachieved a little bit at the beginning part of this season.
Very much like some of the top boys like Bayern Munich.
I think Moenchengladbach's gonna handle their business pretty easy.
It's a reason they're big favorites.
I'm taking them to win.
Then we move into Saturday.
Got iron rich Frankfurt versus Cologne.
Uh, cologne again.
Another team that, you know, they're kind of they're They're hanging around sort of the lower tiers.
I believe they're in 16th place.
Yeah, 16th at O and three.
Frankfurt is two and one.
I think that they underachieved last season.
I expected them have a bounce back year this year. They're a young team.
Um, yeah, I I've got I've got Frank for winning this game pretty handily.
Uh, then you got Union Berlin taking on Shell ca? Yeah.
Berlin's a team that I'm not very fonda of.
I have my reasons behind it.
I'm not very fun to shell ca either.
And they're sitting dead last in the Buddhist leader right now.
And as much as it kills me to say this, I think that it's going to just, you know, it's gonna be a tight game.
I'm gonna lean with Berlin.
I think shelf is gonna fall.
The and four they got stomped their first week to buy, Communicate nothing.
And they just look, Schukin, Since then, I have to go with the Union Berlin.
So that's the Sunday game.
So that's the wrap up of the Bundesliga.
Look, a lot of good like this isn't gonna.
Unfortunately, we were treated two weeks ago toe one of the greatest days in the English Premier League.
When it comes to goalscoring and that kind of thing, we're not going to see a repeat of that this weekend.
I don't think in any league but another good week of football with some interesting matchups.
I'm wondering what you guys let me know in the comments.
What? You guys think it's gonna be the best matchup of the day? That's about it.
I got for kicking it today.
I will be back tomorrow at, um 9 p.
m. Eastern time with my boy Connor Kearny.
Well, we're gonna tee up the weekend talk about football.
Talk about the Patriots for DPM Commentary.
