Midweek TV Preview: August 26 - 28

Tuesday 26 August

18.00 FC Nordsjaelland v Queen of the South, UEFA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg (Agg; 1-0), BBC2 Scotland
The dream may finally be over for Queen of the South, but they got out of worse scrapes than this last season.

19.45 Coventry City v Newcastle Utd, Carling Cup 2nd Round, Sky Sports 2 & HD2
I'm feeling strangely confident about Newcastle's ability to have a good season. Don't worry, I'm sure it'll pass soon enough.

Wednesday 27 August

11.00 Vissel Kobe v Kashima Antlers, J-League, British Eurosport 2
Antlers have lost top spot and sunk to third after a disappointing run of results. Kobe aren't exactly in sparkling form themselves though.

19.45 Nottingham Forest v Sunderland, Carling Cup 2nd Round, Sky Sports 2 & HD2
Roy Keane seems to be making all the right noises about this tie being important, but you can't shake the feeling they'd rather just concentrate on the League.

20.05 Arsenal v FC Twente, UEFA Champions League 3rd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg (Agg: 2-0), BBC3
What should have been a nice easy stroll for the Gunners has become a game they need to put a decent performance in to placate disgruntled fans.

20.05 Liverpool v Standard Liege, UEFA Champions League 3rd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg (Agg: 0-0), ITV1 & HD
Anyone convinced by Liverpool's two Premier League wins? No, me neither. A big potential banana skin and certainly the game to watch.

Thursday 28 August

01.50 Sao Paulo v At. Paranaense, Copa Sudamericana Round 1 (Agg: 0-0), Setanta Sports 2
Those of you who got addicted to small-hour sport during the Olympics can get your fix with an all-Brazialian encounter. The two sides faced each other on this ground last week in Serie A, the home team walking away 3-1 winners.

15.25 Midtjylland v Manchester City, UEFA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg (Agg: 1-0), Five
A fascinating match which most people will miss thanks to fixture shifting for TV. Sneak home early for this one if you can.

19.45 Torquay Utd v York City, Blue Square Premier, Setanta Sports 1
Former League Club Thursday is remarkably Wrexham-less this week. Torquay have lost their last three games while York are unbeaten after five.

20.00 Aston Villa v FH Hafnarfjordur, UEFA Cup 2nd Qualifying Round 2nd Leg (Agg: 4-1), Five
After all that fixture shuffling, Five are rewarded with a dead rubber in prime time. Strictly for bored Villa fans only.
