Best Bets Dec. 14/15 What to watch

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 14

  • TELEVISION

FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP

Kashiwa Reysol (Japan) vs. Santos (Brazil)

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 2:30 a.m.

The Copa Libertadores champs from Brazil take on the host country's champion, a surprise winner (on penalties) over Monterrey. The victor heads to the final. Replays: Fox Deportes, 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.; FSC, 5 p.m.

Also

Monterrey (Mexico) vs. Esperance (Tunisia), Fox Deportes, 5 and 9 a.m.; FSC, 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Athletic Bilbao (Spain) at Paris Saint-Germain (France)

GolTV, 10 a.m.

PSG has mighty aspirations -- that's what's behind the pursuit of David Beckham -- but its European campaign will be over unless it can do more against the Group F winners than Red Bull Salzburg manages against last-place Slovan Bratislava. Meaning it's likely over following this group finale in Europe's No. 2 club competition.

Also

Odense BK (Denmark) at Fulham (England), GolTV, noon

COPA SUDAMERICANA

LDU Quito (Ecuador) at Universidad de Chile (Chile)

Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.

La U is 90 minutes from their first South American trophy after winning last week's first leg, a 1-0 decision in Quito, on Eduardo Vargas' ninth goal of the tournament. A draw will be enough at home.

Colombian Liga Postobon

Millonarios at Junior, GolTV, 4 p.m. and midnight

THURSDAY, DEC. 15

  • TELEVISION

FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP

Barcelona (Spain) vs. Al-Sadd (Qatar)

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 2:30 a.m.

The Qataris stunned the African champs from Tunisia to reach the semifinals, where await the mightiest of all clubs -- and the defending champs. Replays: Fox Deportes, 7 and 11 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m.; FSC, 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Stade Rennes (France) at Atletico Madrid (Spain)

GolTV, noon

A meaningless game between decent sides as Europe's No. 2 club competition wraps up the group phase. Atletico has already clinched a round-of-32 berth, and Rennes has been eliminated.

Also

Vorskla Poltava (Ukraine) at Hannover 96 (Germany), GolTV, 10 a.m.
