UEFA Champions League

Opinion: The easiest and most difficult matches in the UCL Round 16

Numerous clubs will be quite optimistic following the redraw of the UCL round 16 and will be expecting to go to the quarter finals. Some other teams, on the other hand, will find their matchups to be far more unexpected than their opponent.

Draws that would be simple

In the match between Bayern Munich and Salzburg,

For the German club, this is by far their most straightforward matchup. All of their opponents were defeated as they progressed through the group stage.

Sporting Lisbon vs. Manchester City

The same as the previous game, Pep Guardiola's men are unlikely to find this one particularly difficult to win in the end. They have a good chance of winning both at home and away from the stadium.

In the matchup between Lille and Chelsea, the home team is favored to win.

Before the draw began, the current champions crossed their fingers in anticipation. The fact that they could have drawn any of Bayern Munich or Real Madrid was extremely worrying for the Blues' players and managers. The team will, however, be up against Lille. They should be able to go to the quarterfinals if they play well enough.

Draws that are difficult

Inter Milan vs. Liverpool

After playing against AC Milan in the group stage, it appears that Liverpool will have to travel to Italy once more during this Champions League season. Although the odds are in Liverpool's advantage to advance to the quarterfinals, Inter Milan is not a squad to be underestimated.

Atletico Madrid vs. Manchester United

Both Rangnick and Diego Simeone will have a difficult time in this game. In spite of the presence of players such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes, it will not be simple to defeat the Spanish team.

PSG vs. Real Madrid

In this round of 16, Real Madrid will face Paris Saint-Germain, which will be the most difficult matchup. An unpredictably catastrophic collision would result. During the months of February and March, it would also be by far the most delectable game.

Do you have any opinions on these light fixtures?
