[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] The 2009-10 UEFA Champions League resumes with Day 3 of the group stage on Tuesday. The week's big game is a match between Real Madrid and AC Milan, Kaka's first against his old team since joining the Merengues. For a look at three key matches ...

Liverpool-Lyon (Tuesday). After three consecutive shutout losses, Liverpool's season is on the line when it hosts Lyon in the Champions League and then EPL leader Manchester United Sunday. Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard, who both missed the Reds' 1-0 loss at Sunderland in the "beachball" game with groin injuries, should return against Lyon, which was upset at home by Charlie Davies' Sochaux, 2-0. With central defenders Jean-Alain Boumsong, Mathieu Bodmer and Brazilian Cleber Anderson all injured, France holding midfielder Jeremy Toulalan may be moved to the backline.

TV: Fox Soccer Channel, 10 pm ET, delay.

VfB Stuttgart-Sevilla (Tuesday). Spanish club Sevilla, winner of its first two Champions League games, can all but wrap up Group G with a win at German club Stuttgart, which has lost two straight home games in the Bundesliga. "We want to show that we belong in the Champions League and I have the feeling that the team is ready to give everything," Stuttgart coach Markus Babbel insisted. Sevilla had its five-game winning streak snapped with a 1-0 loss at Deportivo Coruna. Brazilian star Luis Fabiano should return against Stuttgart, but Spain striker Alvaro Negredo is at home suffering from a virus that has developed into a form of hypothermia.

TV: Fox Soccer Channel, Wednesday, 8 am ET, delay.

Real Madrid-AC Milan (Wednesday).
Brazilian star Kaka welcomes his old team when AC Milan travels to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium for the battle between the two winningest teams in the history of the European Cup. With Cristiano Ronaldo sidelined, Real (winner of nine titles) will need a big game from Kaka. AC Milan (seven championships) is coming off a 2-1 comeback win over Roma that relieved some of the pressure on Coach Leonardo.

TV: Fox Soccer Channel, 2:30 pm ET, live.
