UEFA Champions League: 19 February 2013: Live Open Thread

Harold Cunningham

There's just 24 hours to go before Barcelona return to UCL action against AC Milan, and what better way to pass the time than more UCL football? Arsenal take on Bayern Munich, and Malaga square-off with Porto; feel free to discuss both ties in today's open thread

Barcelona return to UEFA Champions League action tomorrow against AC Milan, but before the Blaugrana can stake their claim for their fifth UEFA Champions League title we have to sit through another night of non-Barca matches. Luckily, both of tonight's games promise excitement. We have one of the favourites for the title, Bayern Munich travelling to England where they will take on Arsenal, and we have Malaga representing Spain and La Liga as a whole in an Iberian showdown with Porto.
