No valentine? Football on TV for February 14th

February 14 can be a sombre day for singletons across the globe. Regrets over past relationships resurface, or perhaps you just miss the beaming smile on your partner's face when they unwrap a Milk Tray for the X consecutive Valentine's Day. That's love.

For those folk, the need to stay occupied is paramount. The trap of social media doomscrolling is an easy one to fall into, while the ego will attempt to send them just one last text.

Forget about them. Let go. You've been saved. It's a special day.

So, what we recommend is that you make yourself comfortable, however you plead, and whack those AirPods in. Close those eyes, smile, and let the music take you away.


And suddenly, you're okay.

The Champions League knockouts are your safe haven, and there's a cracking tie for you to enjoy on Valentine's Day. Who cares if you're alone? I'm sure they couldn't bring you the joy that Lionel Messi does kicking a football around on a Tuesday night.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich is one of a few games you can occupy yourself with on Valentine's Day.

Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich - Champions League round of 16

This is the best time of the year for any football fan, and the knockout stages kick-off with an almighty bang.

The superstars of Paris play host to the ruthlessly efficient Bavarians in the City of Love on Tuesday night with both sides seeking to gain an advantage ahead of the all-important second leg next month.

Bayern are beginning to purr after a difficult period, while PSG head into the contest having sustained back-to-back defeats. They'll have Kylian Mbappe and Messi available, however.

These two behemoths played out an enthralling quarter-final tie two seasons ago, and similar majesty on Valentine's Day is expected.

AC Milan vs Tottenham - Champions League round of 16

In all honesty, unless you support either of these two sides, we recommend you probably stay away from this one.

Watching an AC Milan side enduring a bit of an identity crisis take on Antonio Conte's injury-ravaged Spurs will probably not make you feel any better about yourself.

While there are a few superstars in action, such individual brilliance is expected to be fleeting in a tie that neither side will want to lose. A stalemate beckons.


Burnley vs Watford - Championship

Perhaps the bright lights aren't your thing, you detest UEFA, or you don't want to pay an extortionate price for a BT subscription. Don't fear, if the Champions League doesn't get your blood pumping, then Vincent Kompany's showtime Clarets most certainly will.

The Championship leaders play host to Slaven Bilic's slumping Watford on Tuesday night hoping to extend their lead over Sheffield United at the summit.

Kompany's side are the second tier's entertainers. They've scored 61 times in 30 league games this season and are bound to arouse a few senses on Tuesday night.

Coventry City vs Millwall - Championship

The second bit of live coverage Sky Sports has garnered on Valentine's Day sees Coventry City play host to Millwall.

While the hosts are poised for a mid-table finish, Millwall are vying for promotion. They currently sit fifth in the table having played a game or two less than nearby competitors. Victory on Tuesday night would put them in a great position.

While neither side are revered for their attacking exuberance, those who enjoy a vintage second tier battle will get their money's worth by tuning into this one.

Who cares how much her new fella earns? You've got the chance to enjoy a Jake Cooper masterclass in flattening folk. Savour it.
