Weekend Matches: May 12-13

It really doesn’t matter what games they show on television this weekend: nothing televised will match the intensity and drama of yesterday’s Getafe-Barcelona match, where Getafe came back from being down 5-2 in the first leg to win the second leg at home 4-0. Getafe absolutely DISMANTLED Barca. GolTV announcer Lindsey Dean (he’s the non-crazy one on GolTV, if you are confused) kept saying Getafe could have won 7 or 8 to nil, and unlike when most people say that, he was right. It was almost as bad (but not quite) as the 7-1 drubbing Manchester United put on Roma a few weeks ago, but more dramatic because of the deficit from the first leg.

There are, however, some good game on this weekend. Things should get a little clearer in Germany and Spain, and while the Premiership is wrapped up, there are some interesting dogfights at the bottom of the table. If you enjoy reading this column then throw me a bone and say a prayer for Sheffield United this weekend, who are in a relegation battle with Wigan. Also, check your local listings for MLS games in your neck of the woods. Have a good weekend!
