Premier League Clubs Face Tricky Opposition In Champions League

uefa champions league Premier League Clubs Face Tricky Opposition In Champions League

The draw for round of last 16 in the Champions League was announced this morning, and there are some massive matches in store featuring Premier League teams. Here’s the draw in full:

  • Chelsea v Juventus
  • Villarreal v Panathinaikos
  • Sporting Lisbon v Bayern Munich
  • Atletico Madrid v FC Porto
  • Lyon v Barcelona
  • Real Madrid v Liverpool
  • Arsenal v Roma
  • Inter Milan v Manchester United 

There are some mouthwatering matches in store. Liverpool against Real Madrid will be amazing with two of the biggest teams in Europe battling each other. Inter Milan versus Manchester United will be a very tricky tie for both clubs and will provide a chance for Fergie to match his wits against The Special One, Jose Mourinho, once again. Arsenal should have no problem against Roma, the way the Italian club has been playing in the Champions League lately. And Chelsea faces Juventus in another tricky tie.

The matches will be played on February 24/25 and March 10/11.

It makes you wonder what the point is of having a group stage in the Champions League. In many ways, especially this year, the group stage has been extremely boring. Now the true test and excitement begins in the Champions League.
