The oldest cup competition in the world and the most prestigious tournament in the modern game are on display as the quarterfinals of both the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League kick off this afternoon.
Chelsea take their circus on the road to Portugal as Roberto Di Matteo's men face Benfica (2:45, Fox Soccer). Chelsea's emotional victory over Napoli two weeks ago has given way to the return of inconsistent play and Benfica will look to take advantage. Things could be a lot less competitive when APOEL takes on Real Madrid in Cyprus (2:45, Foxsoccer2go.com)
An emotional fixture is on tap in the FA Cup when Bolton returns to Tottenham to complete the game abandoned after Fabrice Muamba's collapse (2:45 Fox Soccer Plus). The match is vital for both teams as Tottenham looks to get back to winning ways while a deep cup run for Bolton will put a shine on a season defined by a relegation battle. Sunderland and Everton square off in the other quarterfinal replay (3:00, Foxsoccer2go.com) after the two sides drew 1-1 on March 17.
There are also some Championship and League One games this afternoon, so there is plenty of soccer on display.
