Happy Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. There's no Champions League today, but I am completely certain that every Europa League game that's on today will be better than Celtic-Juventus. Five or six if the Europa League games will be better than PSG-Valencia.
Steaua-Chelsea and Tottenham-Inter are, predictably, the games that have been chosen for FOX Soccer. Anzhi-Newcastle and Benfica-Bordeaux can be seen on FOX Soccer Plus, while Stuttgart-Lazio has been sub-contracted to ESPN Deportes. Cerro-Santa Fe and Boca-Nacional are the Copa Libertadores games on FOX Deportes today. The CCL game will, as always, be carried on FOX Soccer.
