MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Will the return of former Inter star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, back from injury, make up for the loss of playmaker Andres Iniesta in the Barcelona midfield? Will Samuel Eto'o continue his recent run of fine form and score for Inter against his old club? There will be few unknowns in Tuesday's Inter-Milan-Barcelona game, their third of the season.

Television: Tuesday, Fox Sports en Espanol, live, 2:30 pm ET; Fox Sports Net, live, 2:45 pm ET; Fox Soccer Channel, delay, 5 pm ET.

Form: Inter Milan is coming off a big 2-0 win over Juventus on Friday in a key Serie A match. Barcelona was held to a 0-0 tie by city rival Espanyol a day later, a result that cut its lead over Real Madrid to one point.

History: Barcelona won its third Champions League title in 2009, while Inter Milan reached the semifinals for the first time since 2003 when it eliminated CSKA Moscow.

Spotlight: Brazilian right back Maicon scored one of the best goals of the European season for Inter Milan in the win over Juventus, juggling the ball over a defender before volleying it into the goal. He may be asked to play a more advanced role in an effort to win the midfield battle with Barcelona.

Series Favorite: Barcelona.

Probable lineups:
Inter Milan: 12-Julio Cesar; 13-Maicon, 25-Walter Samuel, 6-Lucio, 4-Javier Zanetti; 8-Thiago Motta, 19-Esteban Cambiasso, 5-Dejan Stankovic; 10-Wesley Sneijder; 9-Samuel Eto'o, 22-Diego Milito.
Barcelona: 1-Victor Valdes; 2-Daniel Alves, 3-Gerard Pique, 18-Gabriel Milito, 22-Eric Abidal; 6-Xavi, 16-Sergio Busquets, 15-Seydou Keita; 10-Lionel Messi, 9-Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 17-Pedro.
