April 16/17: What to watch, where to go


MONDAY, APRIL 16

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE
Wigan Athletic at Arsenal
Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, noon

Wigan's stunning win Monday over Manchester United, on Shaun Maloney's second-half goal, boosted the team's survival chances. It'd take another shocker to topple third-place Arsenal at the Emirates. Replay: FSC, 5 p.m.
Spanish La Liga
Sevilla at Getafe, GolTV, noon and midnight

MLS RESERVE LEAGUE
Seattle Sounders at Galaxy
Home Depot Center University Field 1 (Carson), 11 a.m.

The Galaxy's reserves were beaten by Chivas USA in their opener, giving up four second-half goals. Seattle romped to the West Division title last year but is off to a 0-1-1 start.

TUESDAY, APRIL 17

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Real Madrid (Spain) at Bayern Munich (Germany)
Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

A must-see matchup of global giants begins Europe's semifinals, with Real Madrid (Cristiano Ronaldo gets most of the attention, but how about that Mesut Özil?) favored in the series but not the opener. Bayern has superior talent, too (the likes of Mario Gomez and Franck Ribery, to name two). Replays: Fox Soccer Plus, 2 p.m.; FSC, 5 and 8 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.

COPA LIBERTADORES
Guadalajara (Mexico) at Deportivo Quito (Ecuador)
Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.

Chivas is the only last-place team that still has a shot to make the 16-team final bracket in South America's club championship, but they'll need nearly a miracle to get there. For starters, a victory by four or more goals in Quito is a must. And they need Velez Sarsfield, which is already through, not to lose to Defensor Sporting, which could advance with a win.
Also
Defensor Sporting (Uruguay) at Velez Sarsfield (Argentina), Fox Deportes, 10 a.m.
Universidad Catolica (Chile) at Bolivar (Bolivia), Fox Deportes, midnight
