AC Milan Vs. Arsenal, 2012 UEFA Champions League: Lineups

It's a heavyweight match-up in the round of 16 as Arsenal square off against AC Milan, but is it really a battle of heavyweights? Sure, it's two big clubs, but does anyone really think that either club can really compete for the Champions League title? Exactly.

Kevin-Prince Boateng will drop a little deeper than usual today and play alongside Mark van Bommel and Antonion Nocerino, or at least that is what we are told. Still, MIlan are exposed on the wings, not that Arsenal appear to have any intention of taking advantage of that. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain isn't starting for the Gunners, erasing their best hope for stretching the match wide and actually making something of that width. Theo Walcott only knows how to do the former.

AC Milan: Christian Abbiati, Ignazio Abate, Philippe Mexes, Thiago Silva, Luca Antonini, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Mark van Bommel, Antonio Nocerino, Clarence Seedorf, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho

Arsenal: Wojciech Szczesny, Bacary Sagna, Laurent Koscielny, Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Song, Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Theo Walcott, Robin van Persie
