The Champions League last 16 second legs took place this week, with Arsenal suffering an embarrassing 1-5 home defeat to Bayern Munich. Napoli vs Real Madrid ended 1-3 for the second time, taking the score on aggregate to 2-6. Arguably one of the best footballing come-backs has to go to Barcelona for their performance against Paris Saint-Germain, after being mocked on social media for their 4-0 loss, Barcelona dug deep to come out on top with a 6-1 win. Borussia Dortmund vs Benfica finished 4-0, leaving the German side to progress on a 4-1 aggregate.
Upcoming matches: Tuesday 14th – Juventus v Porto, Leicester City v Sevilla. Wednesday 15th – Monaco v Man. City and Atletico Madrid v Bayer 04 Leverkusen.
Teams progressing to the next round so far: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
