There’s a lot to look forward to when it comes to football matches on ESPN+ this February. Here’s what to look forward to in the second month of 2023:
It’s not February yet but this weekend’s FA Cup Round 4 is sure to have some games not to be missed. In addition to Arsenal versus Manchester City, Wrexham AFC hosts Sheffield United at home. With a sell-out crowd expected at the Racecourse Ground, anything can happen – although it will be a tough test for the Red Dragons against a strong Blades side.
Don’t miss any of the FA Cup matches from 27th to 30th January. And watch all over ESPN+, including her new whiparound show.
League Cup semi-finals and finals
The FA Cup Round 4 doesn’t return until March 1, but the League Cup includes two games in February. First up, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest start the month with the second leg of their semi-finals on February 1st. The Red Devils are one step away from reaching Wembley again.
Then the final on Sunday 26 February will see the winner of that draw against either Southampton or Newcastle.
With Newcastle holding a slight advantage in the game after winning 1-0 in the first leg, the Geordies will be dreaming of winning some silver. The last time Newcastle United won a major domestic title was 68 years ago! So forgive the toon army for being upset.
Every single Bundesliga game can be seen live on ESPN+. The most important encounters include Dortmund-Freiburg (2/4), Wolfsburg-Bayern (2/5), Leipzig-Union (2/11), Frankfurt-Werder (2/18) and Bayern-Union (2/26).
