Your guide to the weekend’s big fixtures … all on one page

The Wellington Phoenix play a women’s and men’s A-League double header on Saturday, with both teams among the league leaders.

While New Zealand domestic football takes a break, we’ll also try to include in our weekend previews any games of interest you can watch online.

This Saturday, for instance, you can watch All White Liberato Cacace turn out for his Empoli side against Lazio in Serie A, and you can watch the FIFA Club World Cup final between Manchester City and Fluminense.

You can view the live streams of both those games for free — details below.
