ENGLISH F.A. CUP
Bolton at Tottenham
Fox Soccer Plus, 11:25 a.m.

Fabrice Muamba's collapse in cardiac arrest halted this quarterfinal, and the soccer world came together in support of the 23-year-old Bolton midfielder. His improvement has been rapid, and the replay is set for White Hart Lane. Replay: 7 p.m.
Also
Everton at Sunderland, Fox Soccer Plus, 1:30 and 5 p.m.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Real Madrid (Spain) at APOEL (Cyprus)
Fox Sports West and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

Real Madrid, one of the world's three or four biggest clubs, takes on Cyprus' best club, the surprise of the tournament after winning its group and knocking off Lyon in the round of 16. First-leg success is a must if the Nicosia-based Greeks are to have a chance for the final four. Replays: Fox Soccer Channel, 2 and 8:30 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.
Also
Chelsea (England) at Benfica (Portugal), Fox Soccer Channel, 11:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 2 and 6 p.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 10:30 p.m.; Fox Sports West, 11:30 p.m.

CONCACAF OLYMPIC QUALIFYING
Mexico vs. Panama
Telemundo (KVEA/Channel 52), 8:30 p.m.

Mexico has already booked its spot in the semifinals -- and probably nailed down the Group B title, too -- but a victory in the group finale provides momentum in a showdown against U.S. (probably) for an Olympic berth.
Also
Honduras vs. Trinidad & Tobago, Mun2, 6 p.m.
Copa Libertadores
Alianza Lima (Peru) at Nacional (Uruguay), Fox Deportes, 10 p.m.
Nacional (Paraguay) at Deportivo Tachira (Venzuela), Fox Deportes, midnight

CONCACAF OLYMPIC QUALIFYING
Group B doubleheader
Home Depot Center (Carson), 6 p.m.

The first stage of the qualifiers come to an end, with three teams -- Honduras, Panama and Trinidad & Tobago -- battling for the group's final semifinal spot. The Hondurans, who take on T&T in the opener, have the best shot at it, but Panama could sneak through with an upset of Mexico in the 8:30 finale.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 28
  • TELEVISION

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Barcelona (Spain) at AC Milan (Italy)
Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

The finest team in the world (but, curiously, not in Spain) against Italy's best. This is a title-game matchup, not a quarterfinal. Replays: Fox Soccer Plus, 2 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.
Also
Bayern Munich (Germany) at Olympique Marseille (France), Fox Sports West, 11:30 a.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.; Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 2 p.m.

COPA LIBERTADORES
Guadalajara (Mexico) at Defensor Sporting (Uruguay)
Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.

Chivas is streaking at home, with five wins in six matches after an 0-5-2 start, and could be en route to the final 16 in South America's club championship. A victory in Montevideo, over a club the Mexicans beat two weeks ago, would put them on target halfway through Group 7 play.
Also
Peņarol (Uruguay) at Universidad de Chile (Chile), Fox Deportes, 5 a.m.
Union Espaņola (Chile) at Universidad Catolica (Chile), Fox Deportes, 11 p.m.
Brazilian Campeonato Paulista
XV de Piracicaba at Corinthians, GolTV, 6 p.m.

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Santos Laguna (Mexico) at Toronto FC (Canada)
Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 5 p.m.

TFC took down the Galaxy in the quarterfinals, and the Reds are Major League Soccer's last hope in the region's club championship. Victory in the home leg is a must; holding on next week in Torreon would be tough no matter the advantage.
Also
Pumas UNAM (Mexico) at Monterrey (Mexico), Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 7 p.m.
