Champions League back with a bang this week

The Champions League recommences on Tuesday and Wednesday night. There are certainly many ties to get excited about on both nights. Here are the ties taking place over the next couple of nights.

Tuesday night

Juventus v Tottenham

This could be one of the most intriguing ties of the last-16, as both are heading into this clash in good form. Juventus are undoubtedly the favourites to qualify for the quarter-finals.

However, as Tottenham showed in the group stages against European champions Real Madrid, they can give any team a game on their day. This clash will be a true test of the north Londoners credentials for being at the top table of European football, as the Bianconeri have recorded 11 straight wins in all competitions.

However, the fact that Juventus have won just three of their last seven games in the Champions League will give the north London side hope of pulling off a surprise result in Turin.

Also on Tuesday:

Basel v Manchester City

Wednesday night

Real Madrid v PSG

This has to be one of the ties of the last-16 of the competition, as two of the competition favourites go head-to-head.

Real Madrid are enduring a mediocre season by their high standards and already look out of the title race in La Liga. However, Los Blancos have come alive in the Champions League in recent campaigns, winning the competition in three of the last four seasons.

The French visitors head into this game having won their last six games in all competitions while scoring at least two goals in all six victories. Unai Emery’s side expected to go far in this competition.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s team will certainly not be easy opponents for Neymar and co. It should certainly prove to be an exciting and entertaining encounter.

Also on Wednesday night

Porto v Liverpool
