Saturday Open Thread: Wigan Cannot Be Defeated Edition

New, comments

Arsenal and Wigan face off in the first FA Cup semifinal, while the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga, and MLS have a fairly full slate on offer.

Seriously, Wigan cannot be beat at Wembley (2-0 in their last two visits that don't include the Community Shield because some of us forgot that was a thing!!!) or in the FA Cup (zero defeats since January 2012!!!). Exclamation points!!! Arsenal are likely still the favorites despite their two-month nosedive, but Wigan can and should be able to give Arsene Wenger's side plenty of trouble in the competition's first semifinal this afternoon (5:07PM BST/12:07PM EST). The Premier League's fixture list isn't the most compelling, but Fulham do host Norwich in a match that will likely have implications for relegation (3:07PM BST/10:07AM EST), while Everton and Spurs face away days at Sunderland and West Brom, respectively.

Action elsewhere on the continent includes a trip to the Bernabeu for Suso and Almeria (9:00PM BST/4:00PM EST), Borussia Dortmund traveling to the Allianz Arena in the Bundesliga (5:30PM BST/12:30 EST), and a packed MLS schedule to follow, with kickoffs ranging from 9:00PM BST/4:00PM EST to 3:30AM BST/10:30PM EST.
