Tuesday's Champions League Previews

It's a lovely day of football that we've got on tap. The most intriguing match has to be AC Milan vs. Arsenal. Is today the day that Arsenal’s season finally comes completely off the tracks? Or will this be the day that Milan’s frailties are exposed and their woeful domestic form comes back to haunt them? After a 0-0 tie at the Emirates, anything is possible at the San Siro. Meanwhile, Lyon face a troublesome trip to Old Trafford where Manchester United have been imperious. I can’t see the French side coming away with much here. Conversely, you never know what Barcelona will do these days. Up and down in La Liga, Celtic could go to Camp Nou and give the Catalans a run for their money. This one should be the most entertaining of the day’s offerings. And finally, there is the match that nobody is really discussing between Sevilla and Fenerbache. Kanoute and Kezman are leading their teams at the moment, with Kanoute’s Sevilla having claimed two away goals in the first leg, albeit on the wrong end of a 3-2 affair. This could go either way. Previews are below. -Sanford
