It's time for the Champions League round of 16. Michael Ballack is confirmed in the line-up of Bayern Munich against AC Milan in the Allianz Arena Stadium. The game will start at 7.45.

AC Milan tonight will try to stop the reigning German champions and league leaders Bayern Munich at their impressive Allianz Arena in Munich in the first leg of their Champions League second round tie.

Michael Ballack got a last-minute goal and saved Bayern Munich from a sad defeat. The match against Hannover 96 in the Bundesliga ended 1-1 on Saturday.

Is important to say that fifth-place Hannover, unbeaten in 11 matches, took a 1-0 lead on Thomas Brdaric's 56th-minute goal in front of 49,500 spectators.

However, a precise cross by Willy Sagnol to Michael Ballack, who headed in over two defenders, ensured Bayern's unbeaten streak moved to 15 matches.

"I would have been happy beforehand with a 1-1, but not looking at the whole game and when we are ahead 1-0 that late," Hannover coach Peter Neururer said. "But we learned firsthand why Ballack is the most dangerous midfielder in Europe."

Bayern lost goalkeeper Oliver Kahn in the 51st minute when he bruised his thigh in a challenge on Brdaric. He is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Champions League match against AC Milan.

"I'll have to do everything I can to make sure that I can take the pitch pain-free," Kahn said.
