UEFA Champions League: Your Running Commentary


The UEFA Champions League is back in action, as defending champion Barcelona looks to take its first step toward a quarterfinal berth against an upstart but capable Bayer Leverkusen side in the opening match of the knockout stage. Barcelona is a bit shorthanded for the match, as an injured Xavi has been left out of the lineup, and Gerard Pique is out as well.

In the day's other match, tournament Cinderella APOEL Nicosia travels to France to take on Lyon, a team that is fortunate to be in the knockout round after overcoming long odds on the final day of group play to stay alive. 

Here is the viewing schedule for Tuesday's matches:

2:45 p.m. – Fox Soccer Channel – Bayer Leverkusen vs. Barcelona
