So we are halfway through the Last 16 of this season's UEFA #ChampionsLeague
! It's time to look at the biggest winners and losers:
, the defending European champions were given one of the shortest of straws when they werewl drawn with Paris Saint Germain, and after going a goal down at home to the French side; the notion looked valid given just out of sorts #LosBlancos
have been this season. Still, the La Liga champions class came to the fore, as a Cristiano #Ronaldo
brace, and late #Marcelo
goal gave #RMFC
a 3-1 lead to defend in France on March 6th.
, although they were unable to come away from Stamford Bridge with the win, the 1-1 draw that Ernesto #Valverde
's side secured thanks to Lionel #Messi
's equaliser leaves them in a commanding position ahead of the 2nd leg on March 14th!
, Mauricio #Pochettino
's side had a coming of age performance away to Juventus; going to the feared Allianz Stadium, going 2 goals down in 10 minutes, only to secure a 2-2 draw! #THFC
are surely the favorites to progress to the quarter final when they welcome the Italian champions to #WembleyStadium
on March 7th!
, taking on the 5th placed side in La Liga; Jose #Mourinho
's side laboured away to Sevilla, and have David #DeGea
to thank for the goalless draw. Uninspired, and insipid; even if #MUFC
reach the last 8, they will not be striking fear into any of Europe's elite!
, Antonio #Conte
's men were spirited on Tuesday night, and despite #Willian
scoring and hitting the post twice; they must go to the Camp Nou and defeat Barcelona, a feat they have never accomplished in 6 previous attempts!
, last season's beaten finalists squandered a Gonzalo #Higuain
inspired 2-0 lead at home to Tottenham, to now have to beat the in-form English side away from home, amidst a litany of injuries.
