With Inter Milan and Barcelona advancing yesterday to the semifinals of the Champions League, today’s return legs will fill out the remaining two places in the tournament’s final four.
If you’re planning to follow the World Cup this summer – and why wouldn’t you? – today’s games (Manchester United v. Bayern Munich and Bordeaux v. Lyon) and the rest of the tournament provide a perfect opportunity to catch some of the players who will be in South Africa perform for their club teams.
Wayne Rooney (although injured), Rio Ferdinand, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Frank Ribery, Thierry Henry and Lionel Messi are just some of the players still involved in the tournament who should also take the field this summer for their national teams.
If you’ve never watched a Champions League match, give it a shot. And if you happen to be one of the five people in the country who receive Fox Soccer Channel in HD, more the better because this sport is built for HD on a large screen.
You never know, you may just like it.
