Soccer viewing guide, 2/14: Happy Valentines Day, I got you Europa League

Michael Regan

Is the Europa League as good as the Champions League? No, but it's almost as cool, because a whopping 16 games are on today.

The Champions League has left us until next Tuesday, but the Europa League returns with a bang on Thursday, while Copa Libertadores is still going strong. There are 16 Europa League games on Thursday to go along with five Copa Libertadores games, so if you want to ignore your significant other and just watch soccer all day, it's going to be very doable for you.

Zenit and Liverpool play in one of the early games in Europa League, and their contest can be seen on FOX Soccer Plus. The two FOX Soccer Europa League games for the day are Sparta Prague vs. Chelsea at 1 p.m. ET and Tottenham Hotspur vs. Olympique Lyonnais at 3.

There are also two Copa Libertadores games on TV in the U.S. on Thursday night. Newell's host Olimpia at 4:30, while Palmeiras face Sporting Cristal at 7.
