Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

Few league matches are anticipated as much as the Manchester derby, and even though the earlier meeting this season between Manchester City and Manchester United ended in a scoreless deadlock, there's reason to believe that Saturday's clash at Old Trafford will supply some drama and fireworks.

United, coming off its first loss of the season, will look to put perhaps the final dent in City's Premier League title plans, as a win for the Red Devils would put them eight points clear of their crosstown rivals with a game in hand. A win for the Citizens would keep hope of an elusive title alive.

Other intriguing matches in Europe include Aston Villa taking on Blackpool, where Michael Bradley could make his Villa debut, and a battle between Italian contenders AS Roma and Napoli. For those in need of an international soccer fix, look no further than the final matches of the Under-20 Copa Sudamericano in Peru, where rising stars like Neymar and Juan Manuel Iturbe will be on display.
