Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

Last season, Andre Villas Boas was fired after a lackluster spell as manager at Chelsea. This year, he has found a new home with Tottenham Hotspur, and today he gets the chance to exact revenge on the team that let him go.

Tottenham face off against Chelsea in an intriguing London rivalry that features two teams in the top five of the English Premier League table. Tottenham are currently in fifth, only behind fourth-placed Everton on goal differential. Chelsea are currently atop the EPL, like they have been for much of the season. The Blues have opened up a four-point lead.

In Italy, the two teams that look most capable of capturing this year’s Scudetto will meet as Juventus plays Napoli. And in Germany, Bayern Munich puts its still-perfect record on the line against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Finally, don’t miss one of the final weekends of the MLS regular season, where four playoff spots remain. Three of them could potentially be clinched in the Eastern Conference today, depending on the results of several matches.
