A day after Bayern Munich sent a loud message that they are indeed a strong title contender, the UEFA Champions League favorites from Barcelona take the field at the San Siro today to take on AC Milan (2:45pm, Fox Soccer Channel).
Barcelona will be fielding a full-strength lineup today against AC Milan, with the attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi pulling the strings against a Milan defense that will have its hands full. The good news for AC Milan is that star striker Stephan El Sharaawy is healthy and in the starting lineup today.
In Turkey, Galatasaray will take on German side Schalke 04 (2:45pm, MSG+ and Fox Soccer Plus) and they’ll be unveiling former Champions League winners Wesley Snjeider and Didier Drogba against a Schalke side beset by injuries. The Bundesliga club still has some weapons though, including Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Jefferson Farfan, among others.
