Best Bets Nov. 29/30 What to watch

11/29/2011

TUESDAY, NOV. 29

  • TELEVISION

ITALIAN SERIE A

Juventus at Napoli

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

Juve, the lone remaining unbeaten in the Scudetto chase, is back on top, one point ahead of Udinese and Milan. Lazio is fourth, three points back. Replays: FSC, 5 p.m. and midnight; Fox Deportes, 6:30 p.m.

SPANISH LA LIGA

Rayo Vallecano at Barcelona

ESPN Deportes, 11:55 a.m.


A loss at Getafe has dropped Barca six points behind hated rival Real Madrid, and the Catalans already are deflecting talk that the title race is over. A shock loss here, and it might be.

ENGLISH LEAGUE CUP

Manchester City at Arsenal

Fox Soccer Plus, 11:55 a.m.

Man City might win everything in England this year. The Gunners hope to prevent this with a quarterfinal victory in the country's No. 2 cup competition. Replays: 6 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Also

Liverpool at Chelsea, Fox Soccer Plus, 2 and 9 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 30

  • TELEVISION

FRIENDLY

Galaxy at Indonesia

Fox Soccer Channel, 4 a.m.

L.A.'s MLS Cup celebration begins in Jakarta with a friendly against Indonesia's national team. David Beckham is the big draw, of course -- and good thing it's not Donovan Ricketts, who missed the trek so he could be traded to Montreal. Replays: Fox Deportes, 8 a.m.; FSC, 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Also

France U17 at United States U17, Fox Soccer Channel, 2 and 5 p.m.

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Atletico Madrid (Spain) at Celtic (Scotland)

GolTV, 10 a.m.

No win here and Celtic's campaign in Europe's No. 2 club competition is over, perhaps mathematically.

Also

PAOK Salonika (Greece) at Tottenham (England), GolTV, noon

English League Cup

Crystal Palace at Manchester United, Fox Socer Plus, 11:40 a.m., 6 p.m. and 1 a.m.

COPA SUDAMERICANA

Vasco da Gama (Brazil) at Universidad de Chile (Chile)

Fox Deportes, 3:30 p.m.


Osvaldo Gonzalez's late goal gave U a 1-1 draw in the first leg, and so these 90 minutes -- and maybe a few more -- will determine who meets Velez Sarsfield or LDU Quito in the final of South America's No. 2 club competition.
