UEFA Cup Schedule

Round 2 of the UEFA Cup Group Stage is today. Sorry this is late (thanks Blogger), as a couple of games have already kicked off, but all the matches involving British teams start at either 2:45 or 3pm eastern.

Today’s matches:
AS Nancy v Wisla Krakow
Ajax v Austria Magna
Blackburn v Basle
Braga v Liberec
Celta Vigo v Eintracht Frankfurt
Dinamo Bucuresti v Besiktas
Grasshoppers v AZ Alkmaar
Hapoel Tel-Aviv v Rapid Bucuresti
Heerenveen v Odense BK
Lens v Osasuna
Mlada Boleslav v Panathinaikos
Palermo v Newcastle
Partizan Belgrade v Livorno
Rangers v Maccabi Haifa
Tottenham v Club Brugge
Zulte-Waregem v Sparta Prague

Pick of the litter will be Rangers against Maccabi Haifa, who gave Liverpool two tough matches. Unfortunately, it’s only available on Setanta PPV. However, Blackburn v Basle, which is live on Setanta Sports, should also be a fun one. Basle and Feyenoord are Blackburn's toughest opponents in Group E, and as Feyenoord and Basle drew against each other, a win for Blackburn here would put them in pole position to qualify.
