Wow! I hope everyone is excited for all of these awesome games this weekend out there in the world of soccer!
The EPL is off due to the games at the midweek, so we are left to rely on the other leagues of Europe to bring us all joy.
Well, that’s not happening this week. A survey around the world shows some pretty nasty affairs to choose from.
Let’s start with Italy and Serie Ehhhh.
The most exciting game I can find is Fiorentina vs Inter….wow, what a rivalry, what a real treat!
How about a trip over to France for Ligue Umm. The only halfway decent match-up is 4 vs 5 St. Etienne vs Marseille. That doesn’t exactly scream “instant classic.”
La Liga is equally barren, because the only enticing game is Getafe hosting Real Madrid. Real, Barcelona and Athletico Madrid are tied at the top of the table on points, with Madrid being the only team at the top on the road.
The true game of the weekend is probably Bayer Leverkusen vs Shalke 04. That is number 2 vs number 4, but still not a classic.
So in a weekend with no good soccer, I recommend watching the Olympics or catching up with family.
