Champions League, Scribes, Aston Villa 1 - 1 Southampton, Copa America Draw

Archway Sheet Metal burns. It's all a bit curious...

No rest for the weary! More matches today, this time in Europe where Manchester City host Bayern Munich, PSG welcome Ajax, Barcelona go to Cyprus, Roma head to Moscow, Porto and BATE clash, and Chelsea are in Gelsinkirchen to face Roberto DiMatteo and Schalke. Let's bust some previews:

Manchester City vs. Bayern Munich: Preview
Schalke vs. Chelsea: Preview

How sketchy is this?! Firm locked in stadium land dispute with Tottenham hit by blaze. Hired goons?

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to scribe. Hit it:

Where? Brazil. Who? Tim Vickery. What? Why are South Americans succeeding in England?

Where? Germany. Again? Yes. OK. Who? Raphael Honigstein. Again? Yes. OK. What? Roberto Di Matteo needs to justify big name status at Schalke

Yank Abroad Brad Guzan had another good game last night but couldn't keep out Nathan Clyne's late equalizer for Southampton and the match finished 1 - 1. Stuart James was at Villa Park and filed this report.

Sticking with Yanks, here's an MLS Playoff Rewind. Enjoy.

Time this Tuesday for Marcotti's Musings. This week, Gab is gabbing about...Arsenal woe down to Wenger, Milan sides have far to go, Chelsea impress.

Uli Hesse is talking, too. He wants to explain how attacking football's evolution has impacted defending. Good. Do it.

According to Kirsten Schlewitz, record-breaking Lionel Messi is both football god and mere mortal. Good to know.

This summer's big tourny is Copa America. The draw for the tournament that will take place in June took place yesterday. Check it.

And finally...here's your European Team of the Week.
