Multiple routes to same controller action

my routes file has the following lines

map.resources :players, :has_many => :matches
map.resources :tourney, :has_many => :matches

now I want to be able to display all the matches played by a player and
also all the matches played in the entire tournament. I have two routes
available

tourney_matches GET /tourney/:tourney_id/matches
{:controller=>“matches”, :action=>“index”}

player_matches GET /player/:player_id/matches {:controller=>“matches”,
:action=>“index”}

both these paths call the same action in the matches controller, so how
is this supposed to work?

You will have to add an “if” on your index action, if there is a
“params[:tourney_id]” load the tourney and then load the matches,
otherwise load the player and the matches.
