Munich Derby - 2:30 ET, Setanta

The fierce rivalry between Bayern Munich and 1860 Munich gets renewed tonight, as the teams meet in the quarterfinals of the German Cup. The Munich derby is one of the biggest in European football, but in recent years league/cup games between the two sides have been hard to come by. Tonight, however, that will all change as the club meet competitively for the first time in four years.

Americans Gregg Berhalter and Josh Wolff will likely be suiting up for 1860 in a game that will be played at the Allianz Arena in front of around 70,000 fans. Lucky for us here in the states, the game will be televised on Setanta sports, with coverage beginning at 2:30 pm ET. You can read more about the storied rivalry between the two clubs here.
