April 25/26: What to watch, where to go

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25

  • TELEVISION

ITALIAN SERIE A

Genoa at AC Milan

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 9 a.m.

Milan is trying to chase down Juventus for the Scudetto: The Rossoneri are three points back with five games to go. Genoa, trying to stave off relegation, so angered its fans last weekend that the ultras stopped the match and demanded Il Grifone's jerseys, saying they weren't worthy to wear them.

Also

Fiorentina at AS Roma, Fox Soccer Plus, 5:55 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Juventus at Cesena, Fox Soccer Plus, 8:55 a.m. and 9 p.m.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Bayern Munich (Germany) at Real Madrid (Spain)

FX and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

Bayern impressed in the home leg, but the result -- a 2-1 victory -- might have played perfectly for mighty Real. A 1-0 win at the Bernabeu sends the Merengues to the title game in Europe's club championship against surprise finalist Chelsea. Replays: Fox Soccer Channel, 2 and 9 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 3 and 10 p.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 5 p.m.

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Monterrey (Mexico) at Santos Laguna (Mexico)

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

Chilean star Humberto Suazo's second-half goals took Monterrey to a 2-0 win in the first leg. Hold on -- without Suazo, who's suspended -- and the Rayados retain CONCACAF's club championship. Replay: FSC, midnight.

Copa Libertadores

Santos (Brazil) at Bolivar (Bolivia), Fox Deportes, 5:30 p.m.

Mexican Liga de Ascenso

Leon at Correcaminos, GolTV, 6 p.m. and midnight.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

Real Salt Lake at FC Dallas

MLS Direct Kick, 5:30 p.m.

RSL absorbed two red cards and still was bound for a point in San Jose before the Quakes struck twice in stoppage, handing the Utahns successive losses. They're still legitimate contenders. FC Dallas might be, too, but more evidence is required.
