Bayern Munich vs. Porto, Barcelona vs PSG, Eight By Eight on Arsène Wenger, Uli Hesse on St. Pauli, Goals of the Week

Dear Barcelona, I will defeat you all by myself. Signed, The Zlatan.

It's Tuesday and all eyes are on Bavaria where Bayern Munich host Porto down 1 - 3 on aggregate. They'll have to take some risks or else they can kiss their Champions League dream goodbye. The day's other match in at Camp Nou. Barcelona lead PSG 3 - 1 on aggregate and look to have the tie locked up. The Zlatan will play, though, so...you never know. Here's some prep for your afternoon of fun, along with some extra stuff that includes tomorrow's matches:

Bayern Munich vs. Porto: Preview I
Bayern Munich vs. Porto: Preview II
Barcelona vs. PSG: Preview I
Barcelona vs. PSG: Preview II
Barcelona vs. PSG: Preview III

Eight By Eight is an excellent zine. If you don't know it, check it out. This month, it has an excellent piece on Arsène Wenger. You should, er, check it out.

Now is time time on SSN when we scribe:

Where? Germany. Who? Raphael Honigstein. What? Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich and a wild week in the Bundesliga

Where? Germany. Who? Uli Hesse. What? The Ups and Downs of St. Pauli

Where? South America. Who? Tim Vickery. What? Copa Libertadores group stage finale promises spectacle and surprises

Where? Spain. Who? Tim Stannard. What? Rantings and ramblings from the weekend...

Let's see. What else? How about a European Team of the Week? Yes, that's nice. Oh, and we should probably check out some of those MLS Power Rankings. Who's on top? New York Red Bull Energy Drinkers.

And finally...the CONCACAF Champions League Final is tomorrow at the Azteca. Nigel Reo-Coker is playing.
