SOCCER 2008: Barcelona Beats Real Madrid 2-0

It's a huge day on the table for all of us soccer fans out here with several tremendous matches to pick from.

The big-time London 'derby' (that one was for all you Brits out there...) of Arsenal-Chelsea (10 a.m. CDT, FSC) opens things up this Sunday but that's just a teaser of the day's main course, Barcelona v. Real Madrid (12 p.m CDT, GolTV, ESPNDeportes,

Despite the fact that we're still pretty early in the season, both matches are tremendously important in their respective title races and should be immensely entertaining. Personally, I'm really looking forward to the Barca-Real Madrid matchup. It's the first time Ronaldo and the rest of the so-called "New Galacticos" line up against Messi and Co. and it should be one for the ages at the Bernabeu.

There are other games going on today as well, most notably Everton-Liverpool (7:30 a.m. CDT, Setanta) and Inter Milan-Fiorentina (8 a.m. CDT, FSC).

  • Arsenal has fallen behind 2-0 at home to Chelsea. They've just had a goal disallowed as well. Only 40 minutes left and they'll have to make a frantic push to get back in the game.

  • The two big games of the day are over and Chelsea and Barcelona have emerged victorious. Chelsea defeated Arsenal 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the day and Barcelona beat Real Madrid 1-0 at the Camp Nou.
