Today is the day after the World Cup draw, meaning there's still that lingering hangover from finding out which teams will be facing each other next summer. The World Cup is still six months away, but there are plenty of matches today to satisfy that hunger soccer fans are sure to wake up with today.

The match of the day will take place in Turin, where Juventus will play host to Inter Milan in a battle of Serie A powers. Juve has fallen behind AC Milan into third place in the Italian standings and must win today to cut down the eight-point lead Inter has.

The EPL will feature a handful of quality battles, including Chelsea's visit to Manchester City and Jozy Altidore's first meeting vs. Brad Friedel when Hull takes on Aston Villa.

  1. depends on your definition of great then, i guess. as you stated, they’re coming off two straight 3-0 losses. in my opinion, to come out, still missing first choice guys, and take care of business against a team thats always hard to play against and currently sits in the top half of the table is great.

  2. This is Adu’s second year of sitting out. His current team where he doesn’t play has one win. He will be viable when he plays, and not before.
