Eager to mark their first victory in the championship, the “Red Devils” visit the “Black Cats” this Sunday, August 24 at 10:55AM/9:55C/7:55PT on Telemundo.
Miami – August 21, 2014 – Deportes Telemundo presents Sunderland’s first home match in the Premier League tournament, Game 2 against Manchester United, live on Sunday, August 24 at 10:55AM/9:55C/7:55PT. Veteran sportscaster Sammy Sadovnik will narrate the details of the game alongside former player Manuel Sol, who will provide the analysis for the 90-minute match.
All of the action at Sunderland’s “Stadium of Light” will also be available on Deportes Telemundo’s digital platforms, including the recently upgraded “Deportes Telemundo en VIVO EXTRA” app, live stream the match on desktop at deportestelemundo.com. Fans can also follow along on Twitter at @telemundosports.
Sunderland will take the field following a 2-2 tie against West Brom in the first game of the 2014-2015 Premier League season.
Manchester United didn’t start the season as well as it had hoped since Holland’s Louis Van Gaal took over as trainer. In its first game, ManU lost to Swansea 2-1, an experience made especially painful since it was at home. The “Red Devils” will try to redeem themselves with fans after suffering a disastrous 2013-2014 season. The team boasts several Latin American players, including Mexico’s Javier Hernández, Antonio Valencia of Ecuador, Brazilians Rafael and Anderson, Chile’s Ángelo Henríquez and Uruguay’s Guillermo Varela.
