Best Bets Dec. 13/14 What to watch

TUESDAY, DEC. 13

  • TELEVISION

SPANISH COPA DEL REY

Real Madrid at Ponferradina

ESPN Deportes, 10:55 a.m.

Ponfe, as the second-division side is known, can't expect to win here -- not after Real's loss Saturday to Barcelona, which knocked the Merengues from atop La Liga's standings. But the opportunity to play one of the world's best clubs, in their home stadium, will be memorable, no matter the outcome.

Also

Sevilla at San Roque de Lepe, ESPN Deportes, 12:55 p.m.

ITALIAN SERIE A

Inter Milan at Genoa

Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.

Inter won only two of its first nine Serie A clashes, but it's been in better form the past six weeks, climbing to 11th in the standings, just four points out of the fifth European berth. Genoa is seventh.

Also

AC Milan at Bologna, GolTV, 2 p.m.

FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP

Monterrey (Mexico) vs. Esperance (Tunisia)

Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 11:30 p.m.

The Rayados, which fell to Japan's Kashiwa Reysol on penalties in the quarterfinals, wrap up a disappointing experience in the fifth-place playoff of FIFA's official club tournament. Africa's champs do likewise. Replays: Fox Deportes, 5 and 9 a.m. (Wednesday); FSC, 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Wednesday).

Also

Kashiwa Reysol (Japan) vs. Santos (Brazil), Fox Deportes, 2:30 and 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (Wednesday); Fox Soccer Channel, 2:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Wednesday)

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 14

  • TELEVISION

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Athletic Bilbao (Spain) at Paris Saint-Germain (France)

GolTV, 4 p.m.

PSG has mighty aspirations -- that's what's behind the pursuit of David Beckham -- but its European campaign will be over unless it can do more against the Group F winners than Red Bull Salzburg manages against last-place Slovan Bratislava. Meaning it's likely over following this group finale in Europe's No. 2 club competition.

Also

Odense BK (Denmark) at Fulham (England), GolTV, noon

COPA SUDAMERICANA

LDU Quito (Ecuador) at Universidad de Chile (Chile)

Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.

La U is 90 minutes from their first South American trophy after winning last week's first leg, a 1-0 decision in Quito, on Eduardo Vargas' ninth goal of the tournament. A draw will be enough at home.

Colombian Liga Postobon

Millonarios at Junior, GolTV, 4 p.m. and midnight
