Champions League Round of 16

The First Leg of the Champions League games is coming up on February 13th, 14th, 20th and 21st. The second leg or the reverse fixtures will be played on March 6th, 7th, 14th and 13th. After that, we will have our quarter-finalists progressing to the next round of the Champions League this season.

Game 1

Juventus vs Tottenham

Tottenham may surprise us and take this game over the course of two legs. Juventus are favorites in this game, but expect Spurs to manage an upset.

Game 2

FC Basel vs Manchester City

Man City will win the home leg by a good 4 goal + margin. In the away leg, Basel could manage to scrape a draw if they play well. City should progress with ease.

Game 3

Porto vs Liverpool

This game should be Liverpool’s in the bag with a relatively easier draw against FC Porto. Salah and co will have to play both games well, but we expect Liverpool to qualify.

Game 4

PSG vs Real Madrid

This is the pick of the draw with PSG pipped to beat Real Madrid over two legs. Madrid has been inconsistent this season. Neymar will be the player to look out for.

Game 5

Bayern vs Besiktas 

Another easy draw for Bayern Munich against Besiktas. Bayern should win both games and advance to the next round.

Game 6

Chelsea vs Barcelona

This game is the second best pick of the games with two heavyweights battling it out. Barca is undefeated in the league and Chelsea will have to look back to 2012 for inspiration. Expect this game to be a close one and with Barcelona slightly favorites.

Game 7

Manchester United vs Sevilla

Another year in which United have gotten an easy draw in the group stage or the round of 16. This time, United should progress through with ease against a weaker Sevilla squad.

Game 8

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Roma

Roma topped Chelsea’s group and are expected to beat Shakhtar and progress through the next round. Shakhtar is also capable of causing an upset, but experts expect Roma to progress.
