What To Watch
Most teams are winding down their preseasons with the Premier League starting this coming weekend and the majority of the European leagues the week after.
It’s a busy day with Champions League qualifiers (Standard Liege vs Ajax Amsterdam and Benfica vs Fenerbahce are the pick of the bunch), and two games in the Championship as well (Nottingham Forest vs West Bromwich Albion’s new mascot ‘Boiler Man’ and Middlesbrough vs Sheffield United).
