4. WORLD: Reading forces FA Cup replay with Man. United
ENGLAND. Premier League
leader Manchester United had to settle for a 1-1 tie at home with
surprise Reading Saturday in
the fifth round of the FA Cup at Old Trafford. Chelsea, Tottenham,
Manchester City, Watford and Plymouth Argyle of the second-level League
Championship were the only teams to win berths in the quarterfinals,
while Premier League champions
Chelsea sailed into the quarterfinals with a 4-0 win over Norwich
City. West Bromwich is the only other League Championship team still
alive after holding Middlesbrough to a 2-2 tie. Arsenal faces a replay
at Blackburn Rovers after a 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium.
GERMANY. The troubles
continued for Werder Bremen, the leader at the end of the fall
campaign, and Bayern Munich, the defending champion. Werder fell to
Hamburg, 2-0, on a pair of Rafael van
der Vaart goals for its third
straight loss. Bayern Munich lost, 1-0. at Alemannia Aachen for its
second defeat in three games since the return of Ottmar Hitzfeld
as head coach. VfB Stuttgart took over second place from Bremen thanks
to a 4-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt. First-place Schalke, which leads
by five points, had to settle for a 2-2 tie with Wolfsburg after
blowing a two-goal lead.
ITALY. First-place Inter
Milan won its 16th successive Serie A win by beating Cagliari, 1-0, and
opened up a 14-point lead when second-place Roma lost, 1-0, at Empoli.
Defender Nicolas Burdisso
scored the game's only goal in the 11th minute, heading in Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cross. Palermo
was held to a 1-1 tie by relegation candidate Chievo Verona and fell 20
points behind Inter.
