April 3/4: What to watch, where to go

TUESDAY, APRIL 3

  • TELEVISION

WOMEN'S INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY

United States vs. Brazil

ESPN2, 4 a.m.

Diamond Bar's Alex Morgan has a dozen goals in 2012, and she leads the U.S. in its second Kirin Challenge Cup clash, the Americans' first meeting with Brazil since the dramatic Women's World Cup quarterfinal last summer.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

AC Milan (Italy) at Barcelona (Spain)

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

The Rossoneri considered it a victory, almost, when they held Barca to a 0-0 draw at the San Siro in last week's quarterfinal first leg. The Nou Camp presents totally different challenges, and stopping Lionel Messi and Xavi a second time won't be simple. Replays: Fox Soccer Plus, 2 and 9 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 4 a.m.; FSC, 5 p.m.

Also

Olympique Marseille (France) at Bayern Munich (Germany), Fox Sports West, 111:30 a.m.; Fox Soccer Plus, 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.; Fox Soccer Channel, 2 and 8:30 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 2 p.m.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Cruz Azul (Mexico) at Deportivo Tachira (Venezuela)

Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.

Mexico City's Cementeros are on the verge of round-of-16 qualification and can all but ensure passage -- and clinch if Nacional can't beat first-place Corinthians -- with a Group 6 victory at winless Tachira.

Also

Vasco da Gama (Brazil) at Alianza Lima (Peru), Fox Deportes, 11 p.m.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4

  • TELEVISION

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Benfica (Portugal) at Chelsea (England)

Fox Soccer Channel, 11:30 a.m.

Salomon Kalou's second-half goal delivered a 1-0 victory to Chelsea in the first leg. If the Blues hold on at Stamford Bridge, they're in the final four. Replays: Fox Soccer Plus, 2 and 5:30 p.m.; Fox Deportes, 2 p.m.

Also

APOEL (Cyprus) at Real Madrid (Spain), Fox Sports West, Fox Soccer Plus and Fox Deportes, 11:30 a.m.; Fox Soccer Channel, 2 p.m.

CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Toronto FC (Canada) at Santos Laguna (Mexico)

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

The Galaxy's killer played Mexico's top club to a 1-1 draw in the first leg, but Santos scored six at home against Seattle -- and last week's red cards and postgame melee will amp up the intensity. Replay: FSC, midnight.

Also

Monterrey (Mexico) at Pumas UNAM (Mexico), Fox Soccer Channel and Telefutura (KFTR/Channel 46), 7 p.m.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

Montreal Impact at Real Salt Lake

MLS Direct Kick, 6 p.m.

Quebec's expansionists are still looking for their initial victory, and Rio Tinto is a tough place to get it, regardless of what Chivas USA pulled off a week and a half ago.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Santos (Brazil) at Internacional (Brazil)

Fox Deportes, 6 p.m.

Group A leader Santos and second-place Internacional tangle with at least one round-of-16 spot on the line. Santos won the first meeting in South America's club championship on Neymar's hat trick.

Also

Olimpia (Paraguay) at Lanus (Argentina), Fox Deportes, 4 a.m.

Flamengo (Brazil) at Emelec (Ecuador), Fox Deportes, 11 p.m.
