FC Barcelona has just one loss this season, and the defending European champions will get their chance to avenge that loss on Wednesday when they travel to Russia to take on FC Rubin Kazan on Wednesday.

The Russian champions cracked this week's SBI European Club Top 10 with its latest league victory, and on the strength of its 2-1 win at the Camp Nou and its draw vs. Inter Milan in Champions League group play.

The biggest mover in this week's Top 10 is Arsenal, which shot up from ninth to fifth after its mauling of Tottenham. The Gunners have been one of the most impressive teams in Europe over the past month.

Another major mover in this weeks rankings is AC Milan, which quietly put together an unbeaten October that included a memorable Champions League victory against Real Madrid. Milan's run has the club just two points out of second in Serie A, and a rematch with Real Madrid looms.

Here is this week's SBI European Club Top 25:
