UEFA Champions League is the annual club football competition organised by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) and contested by Europe’s elite. It is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world. The UEFA Champions League final is the most watched annual sporting event worldwide & the biggest club-game on the planet.

This year the tournament has reached its last 16 phase. Some truly mouth-watering football awaits in February-March. It’s the battle of Bests. The draw was held at the UEFA Headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw:

Schalke (GERMANY) v Manchester City (ENGLAND)
Atlético Madrid (SPAIN) v Juventus (ITALY)
Manchester United (ENGLAND) v Paris Saint-Germain (FRANCE)
Tottenham Hotspur (ENGLAND) v Borussia Dortmund (GERMANY)
Lyon (FRANCE) v Barcelona (SPAIN)
Roma (ITALY) v Porto (PORTUGAL)
Ajax (NETHERLANDS) v Real Madrid (SPAIN)
Liverpool (ENGLAND) v Bayern München (GERMANY)

The less Popular Manchester side has been handed an easy fixture. It’s up to Pep Guardiola now, to not screw up.

Los Rojiblancos face The Old Lady in a cracking encounter. Ronaldo is used to thrash Atletico from his Madrid days.

The Red Devils face the toughest draw possible. Looking at their form this season, it can be a goodbye.

Spurs are evenly poised with Dortmund. This should be interesting to watch.

Barca have an easy job to see off Lyon which they should be a cakewalk.

Roma face the Dragons in this tie. It’s the battle of minnows.

Madrid haven’t been at their best after the departure of Ronaldo. This tie can be tricky.

Liverpool have the mammoth task of beating Bayern.

May the best team win!
