Napoli at AC Milan
Fox Soccer Channel, 11:30 a.m.

MEXICAN PRIMERA DIVISION
UANL Tigres at America
Univision (KMEX/Channel 34), 2 p.m.
It was nice to see Jonathan Bornstein in action, and playing well, in Tigres' Copa Libertadores games, but now that the Apertura champ is out, will he be back with the club's U-20s. America is among four unbeatens left in the Clausura after finishing 17th.

ON LOCAL FIELDS
Colorado Rapids at Ventura County Fusion
Oxnard College, 11 a.m.
The Rapids have new leadership and a lot of returning talent -- healthier, they hope -- as they prepare for the 2012 campaign with a stint in Southern California. It starts against the PDL's Fusion, who beat Chivas USA nine days earlier.
MONDAY, FEB. 6
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Tottenham at Liverpool
ESPN2, 11:55 a.m.
Spurs have been the clear No. 3 in England, behind the Manchester powers, and American goalkeeper Brad Friedel has had plenty to do with that. Liverpool is just outside the European zone and hope that Luis Suarez's return from an eight-game ban can lead the way into the top five.
