Revealing the pairs that will meet in 1/8 finals of the Champions League and Europa League 1/16 finals

Two major European trophies

The draw for the Champions League round of 16 was held today at UEFA headquarters in Nyon. The results are presented below.

Quite a favourable draw for the English contenders:

Atletico are not as strong as they look. The other day, Real Madrid proved that in a head-to-head encounter (even with poor results of Los Blancos recently).  Manchester City should beat Mönchengladbach without any problem at all. And Klopp from Liverpool is still cooler than Nagelsmann from RB Leipzig, though the situation can change in a year or two, but for now lads of Jurgen should secure victory.

There will be plenty of exciting fixtures between bright teams.

One match in these pairings brings back interesting memories:
