Back to the African Cup of Nations Saturday for more Round of 16 action, as Egypt tries to advance into the quarterfinals as the host side. It will take on South Africa in the second match Saturday, and should be able to find the goals needed to move on into the final eight.

There are some big club matches on Saturday as well, with two Super Cups on the docket in Romania and Russia. Both games should be tight affairs. In Russia, Zenit St. Petersburg and Lokomotiv Moscow were 1-1-1 against each other last season, and start the new campaign off with the rubber match.

In Romania, CFR Cluj won three of four outings last season over Viitorul Constanta, and have taken five of the last six. Expect that trend to continue.

In the MLS, the Union come back home to play an Orlando team they just beat 3-1 in Florida on Wednesday, thanks to two red cards. Expect Philadelphia to do much the same at home.
