Mid-week European soccer: Your running commentary

Okay folks, the schedule of matches is set. We have Roma-Inter on Fox Soccer Channel, Barcelona-Valencia on GolTV and Bayern Munich-1860 Munich on Setanta. Since we can’t all be so fortunate to A) be at home during the day or B) have access to ESPN360.com at work, I’m setting up this post to serve as a catch-all for comments and observations from today’s televised matches.

You know what to do. Fill us in on the action in the matches you’re watching so everyone can follow along.

Enjoy the action.

    I beleive he started in the last 2 matches against Levante and Celtic and was subbed out from what I hear he is showing glimpses of what he used to be he was left out of this match because Rijkaard wanted him to rest

    Given that Inter have played a man down approximately one billion times this year, I am having considerable difficulty feeling much sympathy for Mexes and Roma.

    Middlesbrough and Sheff United tied 0-0 at the end of the first extra time in their F.A. Cup replay.

    That Bayern – 1860 derby was drama at its finest. Three red cards, two goals disallowed, and a incorretly called pk with 30 seconds remaining in the 2nd extra time for the winner. Even the pk had to be taken twice after a Bayern man entered the box prior to the shot.

    On a Yank Abroad note, I thought Berhalter played fantastic — drawing the first of two yellows on Luca Toni. Josh Wolff did not play after 2 of 1860’s 3 subs were used on injuries.

    Henry gets pushed right outside the box in the 64th minute. Nothing called, could have gone either way. Still 0-0.

    A minute after Messi almost scores, Valencia comes back on a counter on a low cross into a cutting David Villa hits Villa in stride as he touches it past Victor Valdez.
    1-0, Valencia. 70th minute

    With the whistle about to blow to end the match; Eto’o dribbles the ball into the box, passing two Valencia defenders and shoots.
    The ball is parried out but right to Xavi, who one-times it into the lower left corner of the goal.
    1-1. 94th minute.

    Gabe Ferrari made the bench for Sampdoria in their Serie A match against Atalanta.

    Unfortunately Sampdoria lost 4-1 and Ferrari didn’t make it to the field.

    Sampdoria’s two starting forwards, Claudio Bellucci and Antonio Cassano, were out with injuries today. So Ferrari was dressed for today’s game. I wonder how serious the injuries are, and whether Ferrari might see some action during Sunday’s game against Torino?
