The 16th round draw of the UEFA Champions League football competition was drawn Monday in Nyon, Switzerland, at 11:00 GMT (midday Paris and Brussels time).
The draw resulted in a fiery interview that will bring together Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. The two strong European teams are trying this year to restore their fans’ confidence after the fluctuating results recorded by the two teams. The draw also gave Bayern Munich the German club Lazio, while Real Madrid will face Italian club Atlanta.
Bayern Munich appears to be a strong candidate to defend their title. Last season, Bayern secured the title by winning all 11 of their matches. He continued his remarkable series in the first four matches of the season, ensuring his qualification and lead before drawing 1-1 with Atletico Madrid.
Barcelona appeared to be a remarkable continental strength, by winning the first five matches, but collapsed in the last in front of Juventus with three goals at home, leaving the lead to the “old lady”.
What is difficult for the current version is its late start due to the new Coronavirus’s repercussions and its early conclusion before summer that witnesses the European Nations Cup finals also postponed due to Corona. For some, injuries are starting to pose additional bumps. Liverpool paid the price for the busy program, most notably Dutch defense captain Virgil van Dyck.
For his part, after losing to Juventus, Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman blamed the injuries, saying, “Some of our good players are absent. We can compete upon their return.”
Barcelona became the first team to score two under-18 players in the Champions League, via Fati and Pedri against Hungary’s Frantsvaros. But Fati subsequently injured his knee and will not return until March.
As for Dortmund, he leads the youth campaign with vision and determination, but he has paid a heavy price for injuring his 20-year-old Norwegian striker Erling Haaland.
The results of the draw were as follows:
Borussia Moenchengladbach – Manchester City, England
Italian Lazio – Bayern Munich, Germany
Spanish Atletico Madrid – Chelsea, England
German Leipzig – Liverpool, England
Portuguese Porto – Juventus, Italy
Barcelona of Spain – Paris Saint-Germain, France
