After new years, the Champions League starts again with the remaining 16 teams. Atalanta Bergamo and Villarreal decide between themselves who will be the last to reach the eighth finals. Their match was postponed due to bad weather in Italy. So the second place in Group F is still on the line.
We have already qualified for the next round: the group winners Manchester City, Liverpool, Ajax, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Lille and Juventus. Three teams even won all the group matches: Ajax, Liverpool and Bayern. This has never happened in a single campaign.
He finished second in his group: Paris Saint-Germain, Atletico Madrid, Sporting, Inter, Benfica, Salzburg and Chelsea.
Striking: Only one German team in the Round of 16: Bayern Munich, is perhaps the frontrunner. All the English teams qualified easily, Salzburg is the only team from a smaller league.
The draw for the eighth finals will take place in Nyon on Monday. Teams from the same group or country cannot be linked together. The first matches are scheduled to take place on February 15, 16, 22 and 23, and the return matches will take place on March 8, 9, 15 and 16.
We will know who replaces Chelsea on May 28. Then the final will be held in Saint Petersburg.
