After a short break, the UEFA Champions League returns this week, and four high-profile matches will determine who will advance into the quarterfinals of Europe's premier club competition.

In London, Arsenal will have to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Porto on Tuesday without skipper Cesc Fabregas (2:45pm, FSE/FSN). The Gunners will be turning to Danish striker Nicklas Bendtner to carry the load. Also on Tuesday, Bavarian giants Bayern Munich head to Florence with a 2-1 lead over Fiorentina (2:45pm, FSC).

Wednesday features the marquee match of the round, as AC Milan make the trip to Manchester to take on the Red Devils. Two goals from Wayne Rooney at the San Siro has United standing firm with a 3-2 lead. In the fourth match, Real Madrid's high-priced lineup will aim to prove their value and advance in the Champions League against Ligue 1 side Lyon, which leads 1-0.
