March 13/14: What to watch, where to go

TUESDAY, MARCH 13

  • TELEVISION

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Basel (Switzerland) at Bayern Munich (Germany)

Fox Sports West, Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Deportes, 12:30 p.m.

The Swiss pulled a huge upset in the first leg of this round-of-16 home-and-home, taking a 1-0 advantage on Valentin Stocker's late goal. It's disaster if Germany's giant can't respond at home. Replays: Fox Soccer Channel, 3 and 8:30 p.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 5:30 p.m.

Also

Olympique Marseille (France) at Inter Milan (Italy), Fox Soccer Channel, 12:30 and 5 p.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 3 and 9 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 3 p.m.; Prime Ticket, 3:30 p.m.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Everton at Liverpool

ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, 12:55 p.m.

Only two points separate these Merseyside rivals, and Liverpool has lost twice since claiming the League Cup trophy. Everton wishes it still had Landon Donovan, who would have completed his loan deal at Anfield had the League Cup title game not forced a 17-day postponement.

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Morelia (Mexico) at Monterrey (Mexico)

Galavision, 7 p.m.

Defending champion Monterrey is in command of this quarterfinal series after winning last week's away leg, 3-1, as Humberto Suazo scored twice in the first half. The victor takes on Mexico City's Pumas UNAM or El Salvador's Isidro Metapan in the semis.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Defensor Sporting (Uruguay) at Guadalajara (Mexico)

Fox Deportes, 8:30 p.m.

It's been a tough winter every which way for Chivas, which sits last in Group 7 with one point from two games. A win at home would keep the club in position to make the knockout round.

Also

Nacional (Uruguay) at Alianza Lima (Peru), Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14

  • TELEVISION

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Napoli (Italy) at Chelsea (England)

Fox Soccer Channel, 12:30 p.m.

Fellow Londoners Arsenal nearly battled back from a 4-0 first-leg loss against AC Milan last week, and it should have gone to overtime. Chelsea's task isn't so severe -- Napoli's advantage is 3-1 -- but getting to the quarterfinals won't be easy. Replays: Fox Soccer Plus, 3 and 9 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 3 p.m.; Fox Sports West, 11:30 p.m.

Also

CSKA Moscow (Russia) at Real Madrid (Spain), Fox Sports West and Fox Deportes, 12:30 p.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 12:30 and 6:30 p.m.; Fox Soccer Channel, 3 p.m.

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Seattle Sounders (U.S.) at Santos Laguna (Mexico)

Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 5 p.m.

The Sounders pulled off a bit of a surprise in the first leg, taking an early lead (through UCLA alum David Estrada) and quickly answering Santos' goal (through UC Irvine alum Brad Davis) to pull out a 2-1 home win. Can they hold on against the Mexican Primera Division's first-place club? Replay: FSC, midnight.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Corinthians (Brazil) at Cruz Azul (Mexico)

Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.

The Cementeros won in Paraguay and romped at home against Tachira in their first two matches in South America's club championship. Now they get Group 6's other unbeaten team, in Mexico City.

Also

Deportivo Tachira (Venezuela) at Nacional (Paraguay), Fox Deportes, 4 a.m.

The Strongest (Bolivia) at Internacional (Brazil), Fox Deportes, 6 a.m.

Zamora (Venezuela) at Fluminense (Brazil), Fox Deportes, 10 p.m.

Vasco da Gama (Brazil) at Libertad (Paraguay), Fox Deportes, midnight

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Toronto FC (Canada) at Galaxy (U.S.)

Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 7 p.m.

L.A. rallied from an early deficit to claim a 2-2 draw in last week's first leg, in Toronto. A win or low-scoring draw (0-0 or 1-1) sends the Galaxy to the semifinals, and with attendance capped at 7,500, the screen is nearly everyone's best bet.

  • ON LOCAL FIELDS

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Toronto FC (Canada) at Galaxy (U.S.)

Home Depot Center (Carson), 7 p.m.

The Galaxy has home-field advantage in this quarterfinal series, after pulling out a tie in opener, but a tough weekend probably deprives Bruce Arena of a few first-choice options. TFC has no such restrictions: MLS gave the Reds a bye in the first week of league play.

TV: Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46).
