Milan, March 4: AC Milan, who have drawn four of their last five games in Serie A, will be boosted by the return of playmaker Kaka when the holders entertain Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The Brazilian has recovered from a knee problem in time for the first knockout round second leg at the San Siro, a game Milan must win to qualify for the quarter-finals having drawn 0-0 at Arsenal two weeks ago. Barcelona, the 2006 winners, are favourites to go through after winning 3-2 at Celtic in the first leg although the Catalans will be wary after Atletico Madrid fought back from a goal down to beat Frank Rijkaard's side 4-2 at the weekend.
Manchester United welcome Olympique Lyon to Old Trafford with
the scores level at 1-1 after Carlos Tevez's late equaliser in
France last month.
Firebrand forwards Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney came on as substitutes in United's 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday but the pair look certain to start against Lyon.
Fenerbahce also visit Sevilla on Tuesday, with the Turks 3-2 up
from the first leg.
Three other ties take place on Wednesday, with Inter Milan against Liverpool having been put back to March 11.
