The two clubs from last year's UEFA Champions League final are set to do battle three rounds earlier in 2011, as Bayern Munich and Inter Milan square off in the first leg of their round-of-16 knockout tie in Italy.

In the day's other UCL match, upstart Marseille will look to take advantage of a somewhat weakened Manchester United side (no Rio Ferdinand or Ryan Giggs) in the home leg of their tie.

Arsenal was already victorious in its first knockout match, but it faces a league test on Wednesday, welcoming Stoke City to the Emirates.

  1. I’ll tell my MBA adviser that you believe I know nothing so we can both share in a nice laugh.

    Rooney has done NOTHING except that one goal. But enjoy your alternate reality.

  2. I get why OM is playing for a tie, but their home side advantage won’t count for much in the next leg if the come away with a goose egg here. Besides, the Man U robots always find a way in the obligatory 11 minutes of stoppage time to eek out a late goal….

  3. it’s part of the Velodrome chant. north side screams
    allez OM allez

    south side screams back
    allex OM allez

    north side screams
    nous sommes gangez

    south side screams back

    ends with ooooooh stuff.

    very cool.

  4. Great job by the official to play the advantage, but you absolutely have to go back and give Evra a yellow card. Advantage should never mean a card isn’t given.
