3/4/2012

SUNDAY, MARCH 4

  • TELEVISION

ITALIAN SERIE A

Lazio at Roma

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 6 a.m.


The Roman clubs share a stadium and immense hatred of each other. Both are battling for European slots next season, but Lazio's in better shape -- Roma has won just twice in its last eight games and fell, 4-1, to Atalanta last weekend. Think that matters? Think again. Replay: FSC, midnight

Also

Napoli at Parma, Fox Soccer Plus, 8 a.m.

Catania at Inter Milan, Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

DUTCH EREDIVISIE

Twente at PSV

ESPN Deportes, 6 a.m.

Holland's powers are in a virtual tie atop the first division table: third-place Twente is three points back with a game in hand. Winning in Eindhoven won't be simple -- PSV is 10-0-1 at home.

Granada at Valencia, ESPN Deportes, 8:55 a.m.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Manchester United at Tottenham

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 8 a.m.

Word is Gareth Bale will be missing when third-place Tottenham takes on second-place United, but Harry Redknapp says the talk is “a million miles” from reality. Spurs look like they'll finish third regardless, but Man U is chasing Man City for the title, and a win away would be huge. Replay: FSC, 8 p.m.
