Napoli vs Chelsea in Champions League, FA Cup and more soccer on tv

Soccer News of the Week:

* AC Milan firmly walloped Arsenal in Champions League play on Wednesday, defeating the Premier League side 4-0. Arsenal are close to an early exit from the tournament – they’ll need to pull off a similar rout of their own in their second Round of 16 match against AC Milan on March 6.

This has been a crap year for the English teams in the CL. Both Manchester City and Manchester United failed to make it out of the Group Stage. Chelsea are now the EPL’s best hope for European glory. The Blues face Napoli on Feb. 21 for the first leg of their Round of 16 matches. Napoli helped knock Manchester City out of the tournament, but have managed only one victory in the Serie A over the last month. Napoli vs Chelsea airs Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 2:30p ET live on Fox Soccer.

* Jurgen Klinsmann is readying the USMNT roster for a friendly against Italy on Feb. 29. The official lineup hasn’t been announced, but there will likely be a few adjustments from previous matches. The game will be played in Italy, which should allow for some of the Europe-based players to join. However, many younger players, like Brek Shea and Juan Agudelo, may be too involved with USMNT U-23 duties, as that squad prepares for a series of friendlies ahead of Olympic qualifying in March.
