All teams of the 2021 Champions League last 16
There are four German and four Spanish teams left in the Champions League last 16 this year. England and Italy have three representatives each, while France and Portugal still have one representative in the running for the crown of the highest European club competition.
Paris St. Germain
Bayern vs Lazio
The German record champions won the first leg at Lazio with an impressive 4:1 away win. Accordingly, the second leg should only be a formality. Lazio need at least 4 goals in the Allianz Arena to even think about advancing.
Atletico vs Chelsea
Chelsea’s Thomas Tuchel also has a good chance of making it directly to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in his second month as Chelsea coach. After the curious and spectacular Giroud goal in the first leg, it is a must for Atletico to win away from home.
The capital club is still the leader in Spain, but failed to pull away in the derby against Real (1-1). Nevertheless, Simeone’s team is always good for a surprise. The second leg against Chelsea therefore still promises great excitement.
Thomas Tuchel is still unbeaten since taking office. After wins against Liverpool (1:0) and Everton (2:0) in the league, this statistic now covers an impressive 11 games, 9 of which in the Premier League. Only Sarri (12 unbeaten games with Chelsea 2019) and Clark (11 unbeaten games with Nottinham Forest 1995) were more successful in that regard in their first games as Premier League managers.
