This Weekend’s Soccer on TV

The latter stages of the FA Cup always seem to pit lower-tier underdogs against powerhouses, and this weekend's Round of 16 is no different.

Seven of the eight matchups have Premier League teams squaring off with lower-tier competition as they try to stave off upsets him hopes of reaching the quarterfinals. Some of the more intriguing battles include Gary Smith-led Stevenage hosting Tottenham, Chelsea taking on promotion candidate Birmingham City and Everton going up against Blackpool in the final match of Landon Donovan's loan spell (although the American star might not play because of the flu).

Outside of England, Paris-St. Germain and Montpellier tangle in Europe's highest-profile match of the weekend, as the two Ligue 1 front-runners do battle with first place on the line. A pair of Mexican powers meet over the weekend as well, as Santos Laguna clashes with Monterrey.
