This weekend’s soccer on TV

Francesco_totti_ap

Call it the calm before the storm.

The Champions League returns this week with some amazing match-ups. Unfortunately, the weekend before those match-ups is light on marquee fixtures. With the FA Cup in action this weekend you have one amazing match, Arsenal vs. Manchester United, but you’ll need to see that at a bar or pub (or pay per view perhaps?). Aside from that, the FA Cup matches aren’t all that intriguing.

Leave it to La Liga and Serie A to pick up the slack. AS Roma-Juventus is the best match on TV this weekend, while big boys Real Madrid, AC Milan and Barcelona will all be playing TV games this weekend.

A match you don’t want to miss? How about Bayern Munich-Hannover 96. Watch Steve Cherundolo take on the big boys (and Sal Zizzo possibly make the bench).

  2. mike honcho says:

    Hey Ives. Thanks for posting this. Without soccertv.com, I feel kinda lost. Do you know of any similar sites out there? Have a good weekend.

  3. dano says:

    I don’t know why in the world FSC wouldn’t pick the Arsenal v. ManU game over Chelsea v. Huddersfield.

  4. MetroTard says:

    Dano- more money on pay per view.

    BTW, is it on Setanta satellite in the city or can you get it on Time Warner Pay per view?

  5. Scoofy says:

    For those lucky enough to have ESPN360 but not FSC or GolTV, we still have Serie A:

    Saturday:
    9:55 AM ET : Inter vs Livorno
    11:55 AM ET : Parma vs Milan
    2:25 PM ET : Juventus vs Roma
    Sunday:
    8:55 AM ET : Fiorentina vs Catania

    Also looks like there will be some UCL on ESPN360 as well.

  7. inkedAG says:

    I’ll be going to Nevada Smith’s in NYC.

    1-NIL TO THE ARSENAL!!!!!!

  8. Joe D. says:

    There is another site that is similiar to SoccerTV.com. Check out LiveSoccerTV.com for game schedules.

    Also, ESPN 360 definitely shows Champions League games. During the group stage, they were showing 3 or 4 games per day (so 6-8 games a week). It’s great!

  9. Fredo says:

    Once again, I reiterate my request to post times for the under-appreciated Copa Libertadores for our friends unfamiliar with this fabulous tournament, that meets and/or exceeds everyone’s fave, Champions League, play. You’re truly missing out—and I’m surprised Ives has not mentioned the early matches involving Peruvian teams that have provided a nice surprise, especially San Martin’s upset of River Plate! Y Dale Peru!

  10. Capt. Chaos says:

  11. Ives says:

    Fredo, if you have the Copa Libertadores TV schedule that feel free to post it.

  12. Simona says:

    I’m really excited for Arsenal vs Manchester United. So many injuries for Arsenal! I just read a list but they’ll fight it out and keep it up! I have to be positive. Man. Utd. must go down!
