With the transfer window shut, teams across Europe are moving forward with their new parts in place. 

Queens Park Rangers' newest signings Djibril Cisse and Taye Taiwo are in the starting lineup for the club's match at Aston Villa, which has Robbie Keane in the starting lineup and Americans Brad Guzan and Eric Lichaj ready on the bench. 

Bolton added a few new pieces during the transfer window as well, but one of them, former New York Red Bulls centerback Tim Ream, won't be making his debut against Thierry Henry and Arsenal on Wednesday when the two teams lock horns at Reebok Stadium. Henry is on the bench to start out as he enters the final month of his brief loan to his former club.

Elsewhere in notable matches, AC Milan and Lazio are two teams on Juventus' heels in Serie A, and the two do battle in a high-profile match with table implications in Italy. In Spain, Barcelona returns to action in the Copa del Rey. Fresh off eliminating Real Madrid in the quarterfinals, Barcelona travels to Valencia for the first leg of the semifinals.
