Saturday Open Thread: Spurs v. Chelsea, Madrid Derby, and More

New, comments

Plenty of action to follow across the continent on a busy Saturday, with Chelsea and Spurs kicking the day off with the Premier League's marquee fixture and a Madrid derby to wrap the day up.

Patience is a virtue, and a stupid one at that. I want Liverpool now. Waiting is for losers. Wait we must, though, as proceedings from the Stadium of Light don't kick off for another full 24 hours. And if we have to wait and pretend that patience is an admirable quality, there could be worse ways to spend a Saturday than by following wall-to-wall action on what's going to be a busy and intriguing Saturday.

Chelsea's visit to Spurs kicks the day off in full, followed by six further Premier League fixtures and scores of other matches around the UK. Spain's got some delectible offerings as well, with Suso and Almeria hosting Barca, and a Madrid derby to finish off the day. In Italy, Pepe Reina's Napoli travel to Genoa looking to remain unbeaten, while in Germany Sami Hyypia and his third-place Bayer Leverkusen side will hope to fend off fourth-place Hannover 96 while keeping pace with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich, who are in action against Freiburg and Wolfsburg respectively.
