Just about everyone is playing Friday football this week, but as per usual, England is not. Last time they had an FA Cup weekend, we were treated to the lolfest that was Aston Villa's loss to Millwall. This week? No Friday games. Very weak.
However, the other major European Leagues all have games. The best one of the day is probably AC Milan's game against Parma, which you can catch on beIN Sport in the United States. Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich are on GolTV, while Beira Mar and Porto are on ESPN3. Lille and Rennes are on Univision Deportes, en Español. Later on, at 8:30 p.m. ET, you can catch Jaguares and Tijuana on Azteca America and ESPN Deportes. The La Liga game between Sevilla and Deportivo La Coruña is, somewhat surprisingly, not on American TV. Depor are horrible this year, so that might be for the best.
The listing of South American games is not comprehensive. We're keeping it light. This is just the really good stuff, that you should definitely consider watching.
