Best Bets Nov. 30/Dec. 1 What to watch

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 30

  • TELEVISION

FRIENDLY

Galaxy at Indonesia

Fox Soccer Channel, 4 a.m.

L.A.'s MLS Cup celebration begins in Jakarta with a friendly against Indonesia's national team. David Beckham is the big draw, of course -- and good thing it's not Donovan Ricketts, since he missed the trek to be traded to Montreal. Replays: Fox Deportes, 8 a.m.; FSC, 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Also

France U17 at United States U17, Fox Soccer Channel, 2 and 5 p.m.

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Atletico Madrid (Spain) at Celtic (Scotland)

GolTV, 10 a.m.

No win here and Celtic's campaign in Europe's No. 2 club competition is over, perhaps mathematically.

Also

PAOK Salonika (Greece) at Tottenham (England), GolTV, noon

English League Cup

Crystal Palace at Manchester United, Fox Socer Plus, 11:40 a.m., 6 p.m. and 1 a.m.

COPA SUDAMERICANA

Vasco da Gama (Brazil) at Universidad de Chile (Chile)

Fox Deportes, 3:30 p.m.

Osvaldo Gonzalez's late goal gave U a 1-1 draw in the first leg, and so these 90 minutes -- and maybe a few more -- will determine who meets Velez Sarsfield or LDU Quito in the final of South America's No. 2 club competition.

THURSDAY, DEC. 1

  • TELEVISION

UEFA EUROPA CUP

Steaua Bucharest (Romania) at Schalke 04 (Germany)

GolTV, 10 a.m.

Steaua managed a 0-0 draw in the first meeting, so a victory here would give it a step up in the battle to advance from Group J. Schalke clinches a round-of-32 berth with a win.

Also

Slovan Bratislava (Slovakia) at Athletic Bilbao (Spain), GolTV, noon
