Soccer Sunday: Your Running Commentary

Juventus may be the only unbeaten team in European soccer, but a rash of draws coupled with AC Milan's red-hot form has left the Turin club trailing in the race for the Serie A title.

Juve is currently seven points behind Milan, but can close that gap back up to four with a win today against Inter Milan. The struggling Italian powerhouse is in dire need of three points to help revive the team's chances of qualifying for Europe next season.

If you are looking for some international intrigue, turn to Brazil, where rivals Corinthians and Palmeiras do battle today in the Derby Paulista.

CONCACAF Olympic qualifying resumes today, with Mexico taking on Honduras in a match-up that will very likely decide who the United States faces in the tournament semifinals (assuming the United States beats El Salvador on Monday to advance).

If you will be watching today's action, or want to discuss today's early morning action (like the Old Firm), please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

    Bradley gave up the equalizer… Header back to the keeper landed right at the feet of a Siena striker.

  2. predicto says:

    Yeah – marred an otherwise very nice performance by MB. He had the nice corner that resulted in Chievo’s goal. Too bad they’ll remember that bad back pass….

  3. predicto says:

    Did Altidore play in today’s win?

  4. Mig22 says:

    Came on at half as a sub. Don’t know if he did anything useful.

  5. g? says:

    I think he came off the bench again. He’s either getting gassed, or Verbeek is doing the mind-games thing again.

  6. Mig22 says:

    ESPN writeup said he set up teh game winner and missed a good opportunity.

  7. atd says:

    To be fair, he also had the assist on the game-winning goal.

  8. atd says:

    . . . which I guess would be covered under “set up the game winner.” Good god what a brain fart. Sorry.

  9. Dan Striker says:

    Old Firm game was very good – lots of goals, red cards, dodgy refs! just the usual Ol Firm game I guess!

  10. Chan says:

    I agree; this was the first time I watched an Old Firm. This was one of the fastest games (especially the first half) I have ever seen. It certainly lived up to its traditions and history!

  11. Hot Garbage Smells better than the SPL says:

    I saw the exact same match with equal quality down at the fields by weekend warriors on Sunday afternoon last week.

    In other words, the entire SPL is hot garbage and gets far too much credit for tradition that is long expired.

  12. g? says:

    Violent Sectarianism is NEVER gonna die! OLD FIRM FOREVER!
    /sarcasm

  13. g? says:

    Though to comment on my comment, at least if you’re going to watch a league where only two teams have any shot at winning, and said teams have a history of violence and politics getting mixed in (though admittedly less violence IIRC), why not La Liga?

  14. Alex G says:

    My teams suck this season, pumas sucks,US U23 sucks, Juve is sucking, lol, what else could happen

  15. Citronomics says:

    Thinkl Ives tweeted last night but just in case, HERCULEZ scored an impressive (sick perhaps-?) header for Santos yesterday. He deserves to get a few games in given his form and variety of goals – just knows how to support build up and create space from what I’ve seen.

    Ives’ please get the link up… my bad if I missed it here :-)

  16. ManicMessiah says:

    Really good goal yesterday. I turned the game on randomly, just in time to see it. Didn’t even realize it was him until I heard the announcer say Gomez, and even then it didn’t click right away.

  17. ManicMessiah says:

    Good win for Newcastle, 3-1 over West Brom. Cisse with two goals, Ben Arfa with a good goal and involved on both Cisse’s goals. Tied with Chelsea on points (but way behind on goal difference.

    Worried about Coloccini and Cisse, both of them had to come off with injuries.

  18. JG13 says:

    Some great keeping on display in the first half of Juve/Inter. Both Buffon & Julio Cesar are on their game today.

    Halftime featuring some terrible dancing by some rather attractive ladies (ESPN3 feed where there’s no studio analysis at half).
