Arsenal hosts Barca, Moscow travels to Inter

31 Mar

If yesterday’s games are any indication, today’s Champions League quarterfinals should be good ones.  Arsenal plays host to Barcelona and former Gunner Thierry Henry, who is apparently dreading this match.  Meanwhile, Inter Milan hosts CSKA Moskva.  Arsenal has the uneviable task of trying to stop Lionel Messi.  Good luck with that one, you’re gonna need it.  Messi has been a stud for Barcelona, especially as of late.  It’s amazing to watch  what he can do.  Arsenal’s no pushover though.  They’ve been strong against non-English competition, going unbeaten in their last 34 home matches against clubs from the continent. 

Inter is aiming for their first semifinal since 2003.  They’ve played CSKA twice in the past and emerged victorious each time.  You can’t count on the past to get the job done this time though.  CSKA has won their last two Champions League away games and won’t go down easily.

TV Schedule
Arsenal vs. Barcelona – 2:30 p.m. ET/Fox Soccer (Live)
