Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

Gonzalo Higuain (AP) 

Real Madrid, Inter Milan and FC Twente all look to keep their grips on first place in their respective leagues today when Saturday soccer action kicks off around the world.

Real Madrid leads Barcelona on goal differential and will be looking for a home win vs. Sporting Gijon to maintain that margin, while Inter Milan faces a tough Palermo side on the road as Jose Mourinho's men look to stave off AC Milan's challenge in Serie A.

Tonight also marks the debut of Red Bull Arena, with the New York Red Bulls taking on Brazilian powerhouse Santos in a sold-out exhibition (6:30pm, FSC).

    Diamanti missed the penalty kick! Arsenal down to 10 men, which should level the competition!

    So let me get this straight

    Holden is on his way back from injury

    Jozy is injured but no one knows for how long

    Half of rico’s team got sent off last match and he still doesnt start

    about right?


  • Chris in Belfast

    Well, it really isn’t that far fetched an assertion to make. Their finances are in quite a state right now. They need Premier League money in order to pay their debts. If they go down, and they surely will, it could plunge them into administration and a second relegation.


  • yankabroad

    I think it was a slight hamstring strain. Dowie said that Jozy went down yesterday with the injury. He was also referring to him as “José”.


  • Supsam

    So you also agree that Bradley did a poor job in that Altidore should have never been called up for the US squad all those time where playing time was scarce. (sarcasmmm)


  • BCC

    Higuain scores goal number 20. One of the best players that no one talks about. Strange to think that Maradona might not play him this summer.


  • Dominghosa

    Yeah, too bad Rico didn’t play. But dam n what a strike at the end by Martin Fenin! WOW!
