UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw sets up heavyweight matches

UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw sets up heavyweight matches

The Champions League round of 16 draw, and the Europa League round of 32 draw, took place Monday in Nyon, Switzerland.

They set up the first round of the four month knockout stages, which will end the European club football season. The Europa League final will take place May 29 at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan, while the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium (home of Atletico Madrid) will host the Champions League final June 1.

The introduction of VAR for both tournaments from the round of 16 on to the finals adds a new wrinkle, and should be interesting to watch.

Real Madrid has won the last three Champions League titles, and will start its knockout stage defense against Ajax.

The four English sides in Champions League, three of which will open at home in the two-legged ties which will start either February 12-13 or 19-20, will have some tough match ups.

Liverpool will face Bayern Munich, Manchester United will take on Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint Germain, while Tottenham will see Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund.

Manchester City, as the lone group winner from England, will start on the road. The Cityzens, the current favorite to win the tournament, will visit Schalke 04.

There are two more English teams in the Europa League, and they are the two betting favorites to win the competition and earn an automatic berth into next season’s Champions League (if it is not in the top four of the Premier League).

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United


Southampton snapped Arsenal’s 22-match unbeaten run, and also moved out of the relegation zone, with a thrilling 3-2 win. The win was Ralph Hasenhuttl’s first at the helm for the Saints, since he took over from Mark Hughes.

Eden Hazard scored his eighth goal, and had his ninth assist, to lead Chelsea three points clear of the Gunners in fourth place. Those numbers for Hazard put him in elite European company: only Lionel Messi has a better start to his season.

Finally, Xherdan Shaqiri came on as a substitute and scored two deflected goals, to lead Liverpool back to the top of the table with its first league win over Manchester United in five years.
