UEFA Champions League PreviewBy: The Offside | December 6th, 2010
The European journey continues this week..
This is the UEFA Champions League, and it’s down to the point where the men are separated from the boys – the knockout rounds. Sixteen teams remain, and eight of those will play their first legs this week.
TUESDAY, 15 FEBRUARY
Spurs head to the San Siro for the second time this season, after playing Inter close there in October. This time it’s the knockouts and it’s Serie A leaders Milan they’ll be facing, a side that has been both defending and attacking well. On that last visit, it was Gareth Bale who led the side, scoring all the goals and consistently demolishing Maicon. This time, Bale is out with a back injury. They will need to find goals from elsewhere, since Milan’s front line of Robinho, Ibrahimovic and Pato are unlikely to be held without scoring in front of a hungry home crowd.
Valencia vs. Schalke 04
WEDNESDAY, 16 FEBRUARY
Arsenal vs. Barcelona
AS Roma vs. Shakhtar Donetsk
