Now the Blues will now look to right the ship against the Reds at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. Meanwhile, Liverpool will be looking for anything positive in hopes of turning their 2012 season around.
Another prime matchup in England will pit Manchester City and Tottenham together at Ethiad Stadium, as both clubs sit in the top six of the league standings. After tallying a goal against Manchester United earlier this season, Clint Dempsey will be looking for his second, as Deuce will be looking for the deuce against the other club from Manchester.
In Italy, the latest installment of the Rome Derby will see Lazio take on Roma in Michael Bradley’s first apperance in the historic rivalry. The intense affair almost always produces high drama, and this morning’s showdown should be no different.
Following a surprising loss to Celtic earlier this week in Champions’ League play, Barcelona will be looking to rebound from the defeat against Mallorca.
