Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary


FC Barcelona has been unstoppable in La Liga this season, but their run to a title has suffered the kind of blow they couldn’t prepare for with any amount of skill.

Manager Tito Vilanova cancer relapse has forced him to step down while he recovers from surgery, and his team is coping with the emotional blow of Vilanova’s uncertain future.

Their first match without Vilanova on the sideline comes today, on the road against Real Valladolid. It is a match the Catalan club should win with ease, but how Vilanova’s squad performs will go a long way in showing how Barcelona will handle things without their manager.

In Italy, AS Roma take on red-hot AC Milan in Rome. Michael Bradley’s squad could put pressure on the top four with a victory, while Milan could leapfrog Roma with a victory.

In England, Tottenham takes on Stoke City in a match-up that could give us a battle between USMNT teammates Clint Dempsey and Geoff Cameron. Spurs need a win to maintain hold of their Top Four spot, while Stoke City will be trying to push their unbeaten streak to seven matches with a win at White Hart Lane.
