Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

Inter Milan is no longer the reigning European champion, but it can still finish its season on a high note by winning the Coppa Italia.

Inter faces Palermo in the high-profile club match of the day, while Germany and Uruguay highlight the international slate in a rematch of the 2010 World Cup's third-place game.

If promotion battles are more your speed, Huddersfield Town and Peterborough United square off in a battle to see which team will compete in England's League Championship next season.

As for MLS, the lone game of the day should be a good one, as D.C. United tries to break Portland's hex over visiting teams at Jeld-Wen Field.

    The Refs in the Portland game were horrible….DC lucky to come away with the win. How happy did Olsen look?

    LOl these Barcelona fans are getting annoying. They won and they still want to complaint, because they want 10 articles about the final.

    Even when my team wins a final, I dont want to spend my weekend reading articles and watching videos.

    Here’s your wrap-up: the best team in the world for the past twenty five years (possibly ever) completely dismantled to second best team in the world. United came to play, they didn’t bunker, they tried to play their game. They weren’t nearly good enough. There’s no controversy to write about. United didn’t bunker, Barca didn’t whine or flop. They simply too lk united out behind the woodshed and whipped them. I hoPe you watched it. You’ll be unlikely to ever see it’s equal.

    What more do you want?

    I’d say Portland were the lucky one’s DC had two goals in the run of play/throw in and the better chances, both PK’s were questionable. 2-1 to DC is a fair scoreline in my opinion. All Portland really had was the larger share of possession and a ton of corners which had decent service but now really threating results.

    I much rather see him on a team where he’d play more like say Norwich or one of the recently promoted teams, but I guess the challenge of trying to earn a spot might help, too.
