This week in the Roundup will be short and sweet—i.e. no links. Last week started off well with three of the four teams I’m supporting in the top spots in their respective leagues. Only Liverpool had been underperforming. Although, the last two matches have been wins for the Reds and the team looks like it is rounding into form and moving up in the table.
Hertha Berlin is the shocker of the group holding the top spot in the Bundesliga earlier this week. But, a draw on Sunday put them in third. Hertha has a UEFA Cup match this week and needs a win to advance after a draw in the first leg. Roma was in first place in Serie A but lost to Inter and is back in second. Valencia is also in a three-way tie for the lead after a tough away draw against Barca. This week Valencia and Roma are matched against each other in Champions League play and Liverpool will be facing Turkish squad Galatasaray.s
