Champions League: 5 most intriguing matchups of the round of 16


We had some great matchups last season with Arsenal facing Bayern Munich again, Manchester City up against Barcelona and AC Milan facing a red-hot Atletico Madrid.

And this year, it's no different with mouth watering rematches, tactical battles and potential goal-fests as we take a look at five of the most intriguing match-ups to come.

If you're not familiar with this stage of the competition, the top two teams in each group have been drawn to play two leg encounters. Each team will a home and away game and whichever team has the highest aggregate score at the end of the two games will advance to the the quarterfinals.

The rest of the competition will follow this format until the final which will be decided on the night at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany. It's that time of the year again. The Champions League is back after a two-month hiatus and the business end of the competition is upon us.
