I wonder how long it has been since the Asturian Derby was played with both teams within 3-4 points of second place. Oviedo hasn’t lost in eight league matches, while Sporting has but a bit of a rough patch, but with a lot at play, it’s going to be a fun one to watch.
There was a brief moment a few weeks ago where they would have been on opposite sides of the playoff bracket, which would obviously be epic. The league is so packed from like 2nd to 15th that anything can happen.

These stoppages during Bundesliga games are getting pretty excessive. I get it, I understand it and want to see the unique features of the Bundesliga preserved.

The Union game the other night had like 14 minutes of 1st half added time. This game is going to be way more than that.

Fans are throwing tennis balls onto the pitch and the referees remove the players. It's a nationwide thing.

I saw the tennis ball thing at the Wolfsburg game. What’s the reason?

I feel sorry for this commentator. He's debating explaining German puns, looking at airplanes, etc.

This game may end up abandoned.

Quandary has the look of a boy band star, not a tough as nails CB.

One of my most hated things about soccer just happened in the Spurs-Brighton match. After Brighton gets a penalty, where there’s contact but the guy crumples to the ground needlessly, Kulusevski gets mauled in the box, but doesn’t dive. No penalty.

Want diving out of soccer? Start there. If you dont fall like you’ve been shot, ref wont give anything. Even the announcers called it out.

Spurs honestly are playing too honorably these days.

What a header. He couldn’t have placed that better and from a tough angle and body position

Attack that led to the corner started from Trent being unable to contain [checks notes] Wilson Odobert.

Maybe after Klopp leaves, Trent to midfield will actually happen without some tactical cuteness that exposes them in transition.

Oy, Kelleher almost screwed that.

Thats 2 matches in a row where Trent has been subbed out after defensive lapses.

Looked like Mac made contact but there was absolutely no reaction from the Burnley player

Nice work by Kelleher, but holy hell Odobert. Have to hit the target and ask the question.

JFC Liverpool letting Fofana walk through the defense again and again. But why not? He can’t finish.

10 minutes ago this guy wants a goal disallowed because Mac touched a player. Now it’s a “physical sport” and that’s not enough for a penalty.

I liked the freeze frame of the arm getting pulled as he was saying “nothing in it”. I don’t want that called it would have been a weak penalty but it wasn’t nothing. This guy is annoying

Diaz looked up, saw it was Darwin in the middle, and passed out wide to Jota.

He literally did. This is exactly what happened. Darwin is getting frozen out by his own team.
I recognized it immediately because it’s how my teammates look at me in the box before passing elsewhere.
