Barcelona will host AC Milan in the second half of their Round of 16 Champions League match on Tuesday, March 12th. Barcelona will need to dig themselves out of a hole, as AC Milan won the first leg 2-0. The two teams squared off on February 20th, with Boateng and Muntari notching goals for AC Milan.

Barcelona and AC Milan have played each other 16 times in the past, with FC Barcelona notching a record of 6-5-5 and AC Milan posting a record of 5-5-6. Barcelona has scored a total of 22 goals in the contests while allowing 21, while AC Milan has scored 21 and allowed 22. This is about as close as you could possibly get.

The bad news for Barcelona is that they are down 2-0 heading into Tuesday's game. The good news is that they have been excellent at Camp Nou, as they have not lost a European game at home for more than three years.

Barcelona is undefeated in 19 straight UEFA Champions League home games, running all the way back until October of 2009.

AC Milan's away record against Spanish teams is 4-6-13, while Barcelona's home record against Italian teams is 11-4-2.

Barcelona, 1.33

AC Milan, 9.00

These odds mean that a successful $100 bet on Barcelona would return a total of $33, while a successful $100 bet on AC Milan would return a total of $800 in profit.

The very interesting odds, however, are the "To Qualify" numbers. In this case, you are simply betting on which team will make it through to the Champions League quarterfinals. Here are those odds:
