Tuesday Kickoff: UEFA Champions League knockout stage begins

ChampsLeagueLogo

After more than two months off, UEFA Champions League play resumes on Tuesday with the first legs of two knockout-stage ties.

The headliner is AC Milan-Tottenham (2:45 p.m., Fox Soccer Channel/Fox Deportes), where a shorthanded Spurs side will try to steal a result at the San Siro against an AC Milan team that is battling injuries of its own.

Meanwhile, a bit to the west, Valencia is out to prove that it can have European success without former stars David Villa and David Silva as it hosts FC Schalke 04 (2:45 p.m., FoxSoccer.tv/Fox Sports Network). The German club has fared beter in this competition than it has in domestic play, where it has struggled most of the season and has scored just two goals in its last five matches. The match also marks former Real Madrid captain Raul's return to Spain.

How do you see Tuesday's matches shaking out? Who do you want to win each match? Do you see either road team coming away with a victory? Happy that the Champions League is back?
