Match of the Week

Sports News - February 15, 2009

*No matter what time of year, no matter what continent one is on, on any given weekend one can catch an entertaining soccer game. The key is to know where to look. Well, look no further -- here's a weekly feature that will preview (and eventually recap) my favorite match of the weekend. Consider this your open thread for all of the weekend's matches.*

**The match:** Inter Milan vs. AC Milan

**TV:** Sunday. 1:30 CDT. FSC.

**Quick Preview:** This one really doesn't need a whole lot of set up. You have Inter -- four time reigning Serie A champs and current league leaders -- and intra-stadium rivals AC Milan -- currently six points behind Inter with a game in hand.

Becks will be there. Ronaldinho too. Eto'o. Maicon. Pato. Sneijder. This one has it all. I wouldn't miss it if I were you.

**My prediction:** 2-1 Inter

**Result:** 2-0 Inter

**Match of the Week Honorable Mention:** USA-Honduras. The match will air at 8 p.m. CDT on Saturday night on FSC. I'll likely be at the Northwestern-Illinois basketball game (Go Cats!) but I'm highly interested in that one to see if any Yanks step up and start to nail down one of the final spots on the World Cup roster.

**Result:** Honduras 3 - USA 1

I posted video highlights of both matches after the jump. Check them out.

  • Two good matches to watch this weekend, I hope I can see both of them. I say that Inter will take one and the other a 1-1 draw. Who's playing the ESPN game tomorrow morning?

  • Its FA Cup weekend. No game on ESPN.

  • AC/Inter is going to have to live up to the Leeds/Spurs match that just finished 2-2.
