FC Barcelona face the daunting task of trying to erase a 2-0 deficit today when they take on AC Milan in the second leg of their CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 series (3:45pm, Fox Soccer Channel).
Milan pulled off a shocker in the first leg, not only scoring twice on Barcelona but holding them scoreless at the San Siro. Now Milan head to the Camp Nou knowing that a road goal would suddenly force Barcelona to score four goals to win the series.
Xavi is back in the starting lineup for Barcelona as they field a full-strength lineup in today’s decisive clash.
In Germany, Schalke 04 will look to build on a first-leg 1-1 draw by winning at home against Didier Drogba and Galatasaray (3:45pm, Fox Soccer Plus). Schalke is facing multiple injury concerns heading into the match, along with the suspension of Jermaine Jones due to yellow-card accumulation, but will still like their chances of posting a victory at home.
