Our final preseason match is later today; before then, there's plenty of real football to keep you entertained as the German and French leagues kick off this weekend (although Bayern and PSG already played yesterday) and the rest of the English football pyramid enters its second weekend of competition.

Bordeaux vs. Monaco is probably the pick of the action (3pm EDT; beIN Sport), as Falcao & Co try to keep pace with the Parisians. You can even follow that up with the first half of Toronto versus the Seattle Dempseys in the MLS (7pm EDT).

Earlier in the day, you may want to consider a couple possibly interesting friendlies, such as Manchester City vs. Arsenal (10am EDT, beIN) or Real Madrid vs. Internazionale (1:55pm EDT; ESPN3). Liverpool and Spurs also have matches scheduled.

Discuss.
