DAMARCUS BEASLEY (RANGERS)

The News: DaMarcus Beasley and Rangers travel to Catalonia tonight to face Barcelona at the Nou Camp. With 16 appearances and four goals, Beasley has settled nicely into Glasgow. (In case you haven't seen it, we visited Beas last month to get a feel for his role at Rangers - watch the all_access video here)

And in case you haven’t seen it yet, we visited Beasley in the lead up to the Old Firm game in October. It is that kind of experience that Beasley and Rangers will have to draw on if they look to get something out of tonight’s game.


Of Note: Both clubs come into this match at the top of Group E after their draw at Ibrox two weeks ago. In that game, Beasley came off the bench for Rangers. However, after starting on the wing during his club’s victory this weekend, he’ll hope to reprise that role tonight in one of the world’s most famous stadiums. Barcelona won this weekend, and worryingly for Rangers, Frank Rijkaard believes that the recently-criticized Ronaldinho is returning to his best form. Walter Smith has indicated that Rangers will be playing for a draw, which would suit their qualification hopes just fine. Beasley also spoke to Rangers’ website about tonight’s big match, and the prospect of qualifying for the next round.


Up Next: The match kicks off at 2:45 p.m. ET, so be sure to read the match preview here. The game will be shown live on ESPN Deportes, and re-aired on ESPN Classic at 5 p.m. ET. You can also follow live updates on UEFA.com.

Great work, I love the Beas all-access, but could you let me know what song was playing in background because I think I may have to add that my collection.

thanks
