The draw has been made for the Last 16 of the Champions League.
Juventus V Tottenham Hotspur
An interesting looking tie. Spurs topped their group (arguably surprisingly) and have been rewarded with a tie against a traditional European powerhouse. A tie that could go all the way to penalties, but I think Juventus will be able to find a way to progress.
Basel V Manchester City
Manchester City will have too much firepower for Basel and will qualify for the Quarter Finals. I would expect them to qualify quite comfortably.
Porto V Liverpool
I would expect Liverpool’s front four to overwhelm Porto and secure their passage to the Quarter Finals. However, Liverpool’s defensive issues give Porto a chance and it is unlikely to be as comfortable as Liverpool would hope.
Sevilla V Manchester United
A tricky tie for Manchester United, but I expect Mourinho to mastermind a victory across the two legs. I think they will qualify by the odd goal in the tie.
Real Madrid V Paris Saint Germain
PSG’s reward for topping their group is a Last 16 clash against the defending champions. It’s definitely the tie of the round as strong arguments could be made for either team winning the competition. Both teams have an abundance of attacking talents, but I think Real’s defence is slightly stronger and this will be enough for them to edge past PSG.
Shakhtar Donetsk V Roma
A trip to Ukraine is always tricky, but I expect that Roma will have enough over the two games to qualify for the Quarter Finals.
Chelsea V Barcelona
If Conte is serious about Chelsea being out of the title race, they may focus on the Champions League, making them dangerous opponents. Barcelona are not quite the force they have been in the past, but I think they will be able to get past Chelsea.
Bayern Munich V Besiktas
Turkey can be a difficult place to visit for teams in the Champions League, but I can see Bayern Munich heading there with a comfortable lead that will see them progress.
