Midweek TV Preview: 5 - 8 April 2010

Tuesday 6th April

17:30 CSKA Moscow v Inter Milan, UEFA Champions League, Quarter-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 2/HD2

Jose will not under estimate Russian opposition and will be weary of the trickery of Serbian winger Milos Krasić. Saying that, it would be a major shock if CSKA were to progress.

19:45 Barcelona v Arsenal, UEFA Champions League, Quarter-Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 2/HD2
Difficult to know if Arsenal are a genuine threat to Barca or will meet the same fate as Stuttgart (allowed their moment of glory at home in the first leg before being sent packing in the second). Either way it promises to be tremendous fun.

Wednesday 7th April

19:45 Manchester United v Bayern Munich, UEFA Champions League, ITV1

Robben is due back for the visitors and Franck Ribery was a substitute during their top-of-the-table clash with Schalke at the weekend so he could rest up. United are Rooney-lite (or so we think) and wounded after their defeat to Schalke. That Bayern defence though. I just don't trust it.

19:45 Bordeaux v Lyon, UEFA Champions League, Quarter Final 2nd Leg, Sky Sports 2/HD2
Definitely Advantage Lyon but you can bet that Laurent Blanc will be chucking everything but the évier de cuisine at the visitors.

Thursday 8th April

20:05 Wolfsburg v Fulham, UEFA Europa League, ITV4
That pesky away goal has thrown a spanner in Fulham's works. The Wolves are in good goalscoring nick and Dzeko is on fire. It will need to be another heroic night for The Cottagers if they are to succeed.

20:05 Liverpool v Benfica, UEFA Europa League, Five
More away goal shenanigans, this time for Benfica. You can rely on the Anfield roar to be in full voice for another classic European night. Hard to choose which of the two Europa League ties involving English clubs is the one to watch.

Please note that the additional fixtures on ESPN and ITV4 have not been confirmed and the time of writing.
