words_Nick Engvall

This weekend was busy for the sport of soccer, with matches taking place in what seemed to be every league around the globe. Highlights from this weekend include Chivas USA with a 1-0 victory over DC United in MLS action, Real Madrid and Mallorca battling to a scoreless draw in the Spanish La Liga match, as well as AC Milan with a big 4-0 win against Lecce in Series A action.

One of the most highly anticipated of the weekend’s action was the teaming of two of the biggest stars in the world of soccer, David Villa of the World Cup winning Spanish National team making his La Liga debut joining forces with Lionel Messi on the Barcelona team. Each of the superstars put a goal in as Barcelona defeated Racing de Santandor 3-0.
