April 9/10: What to watch, where to go

MONDAY, APRIL 9

  • TELEVISION

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Chelsea at Fulham

ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes, 11:55 a.m.

Texan Clint Dempsey scored two more goals Saturday for Fulham -- his 20th and 21st of the season -- displaying the sort of form that's likely to take him to a big club in a few months, perhaps Chelsea. The Blues are in a four-team fight for three European berths, two of them in the Champions League.

Also

Norwich City at Tottenham, ESPN Deportes, 6:55 a.m.

Bolton at Newcastle United, Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 7 a.m.

Stoke City at Aston Villa, Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Deportes, 9:30 a.m.

Championship

Coventry City at Bristol City, Fox Soccer Plus, 6:55 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Birmingham City at West Ham United, Fox Soccer Plus, 9:15 a.m. and 6 p.m.

TUESDAY, APRIL 10

  • TELEVISION

ITALIAN SERIE A

AC Milan at Chievo Verona

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

Milan fell to second in Italy's top league with a home loss Saturday to Palermo, a point behind unbeaten Juventus with seven games to go. A win over Michael Bradley and the Flying Donkeys is a must. Replay: Fox Soccer Plus, 6 p.m.

German Bundesliga

Cologne at FSV Mainz 05, GolTV, 11 a.m.

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Liverpool at Blackburn

Fox Soccer Channel, noon

We can be pretty certain that Wolves is headed back to the second-tier Championship, and two more teams will be relegated from this quartet: Bolton, QPR, Blackburn and Wigan. The Rovers would be heading down in the season ended now, and they need to beat Liverpool, just like QPR and Wigan did late last month. Replay: 5 p.m.

COPA LIBERTADORES

Defensor Sporting (Uruguay) at Deportivo Quito (Ecuador)

Fox Deportes, 2:30 p.m.

It looks like one round-of-16 berth from Group 7 in South America's club championship is available -- Argentina's Velez Sarsfield is almost through -- and one of these or Guadalajara will grab it. Defensor has the edge, with two points on the other two and two games to play.

Also

Arsenal Sarandi (Argentina) at Zamora (Venezuela), Fox Deportes, 4:30 p.m.

Peñarol (Uruguay) at Atletico Nacional (Colombia), Fox Deportes, 7 p.m.

Bolivar (Bolivia) at Union Española (Chile), Fox Deportes, 11 p.m.
