AC Milan vs. Arsenal
UEFA Champions League, Round of 16, Leg 1
Kickoff: Today, 245 PM EST
San Siro, Milan, Lomabardy, Italy
TV: Fox Soccer Channel

Arsenal travel to the San Siro to try to continue their basic dominance of all things Italian in the Champions League and other European competitions, the loss to Milan in 1995 being almost the lone exception. Back in 2008, Arsenal defeated Milan here with a squad that Wenger felt was more technically gifted but less mentally strong than the one going there today, so we'll see what happens.

This is also Thierry Henry's last match in an Arsenal shirt, so major sniffles there. (Please score a hat trick, Thierry).
