April 5/6: What to watch, where to go

THURSDAY, APRIL 5

  • TELEVISION

UEFA EUROPA LEAGUE

Atletico Madrid (Spain) at Hannover 96 (Germany)

GolTV, noon

Eduardo Salvio's end-of-game goal gave Atletico a 2-1 win in the home leg of their quarterfinal in Europe's No. 2 club competition. Hannover, with American Steve Cherundolo, needs only a 1-0 win to advance. Replay: midnight.

Also

Schalke 04 (Germany) at Athletic Bilbao (Spain), GolTV, 2 p.m.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Nacional (Uruguay) at Libertad (Paraguay)

Fox Deportes, 4 p.m.

Group 5 is the tightest in South America's club championship, with one point separating Libertad and Brazil's Vasco da Gama from Nacional with two games to play.

Also

Universidad Catolica (Chile) at Junior (Colombia), Fox Deportes, 4 a.m.

Universidad de Chile (Chile) at Godoy Cruz (Argentina), Fox Deportes, 8 a.m.

The Strongest (Bolivia) at Juan Aurich (Peru), Fox Deportes, 11 p.m.

MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER

New England Revolution at FC Dallas

MLS Direct Kick, 5:30 p.m.

The Revs, especially rookie Kelyn Rowe from UCLA, looked very good last weekend against the Galaxy, but some of that might have been L.A.'s ineptitude. Dallas is struggling -- injuries have something to do with it -- after conceding a lead against Sporting Kansas City and getting dominated by D.C. United.

  • ON LOCAL FIELDS

WOMEN'S FRIENDLY

UCLA vs. China U-20

Home Depot Center Field 3 (Carson), 6 p.m.
