On this article, we will be providing detailed information and some predictions about Champions League 2020-21 round of 16 line ups, so that you could have a better overview on how the games are going to go. Starting off with the first week of the first leg, we will keep you updated on everything that goes on every Champions League week.

Champions League 2021 round of 16 first leg

While we have some of the usuals competing in this season’s UCL, there are also others who could be hopeful for a qualification to the next round, as nothing is impossible in this game. While the final stages kick off with the abovementioned matches, which are full of intensity, we also have

Sevilla

v Dortmund and Porto v Juventus in the first week, while also having four other eagerly awaited matches in the second week of the first leg.

Week 1

While there is still time to talk about the second week of the first leg, here is a look at everything you might need to know about the first week of this leg in the

Champions League 2021 round of 16

.

RB Leipzig v Liverpool
  • Date: Tuesday, February 16

  • Time: 08:00 PM GMT

As mentioned before, the

2020/21 Champions league round of 16 matches

will kick off as RB Leipzig host the winners of the 2018/2019 UCL,

Liverpool

, on Tuesday February 16. The English champions were humiliated at Anfield by Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City thanks to a couple of horrendous mistakes by Alisson, who could not protect his team’s goal and caused Liverpool to lose 4-1 at their home. RB Leipzig, on the other hand, have had quite an impressive season as they are currently sitting second on the Bundesliga table, only being behind Bayern Munich with seven points.

Jurgen Klopp will also be under emotional pressure as his mother sadly passed away at the age of 81, and the German manager could not attend her funeral in Germany due to COVID-19 travel restrictions which stopped him from exiting England. Of course we have seen many professionals continue their professional work even after hearing such bad news during games.

Champions League 2020-21 round of 16 line ups for this match have not been released yet. What is known, however, is the fact that the two teams will go head to head in the neutral country of Hungary, as the latest COVID-19 restrictions do not allow Liverpool to fly off to Germany. Fans can catch the game on beIN Sports Connect and BT Sport 2, with other live streaming services available as well.

Barcelona v PSG
  • Date: Tuesday, February 16

  • Time: 08:00 PM GMT

Perhaps one of the most anticipated and talked about 2020/21 Champions league round of 16 matches is the one where Paris Saint-Germain pay a visit to

Barcelona

, the team who miraculously managed to overturn the scoreline and beat PSG 6-1 to qualify for the next round. The previous match was also in the Round of 16, with the difference that the Catalans had hosted the Parisians in the second leg of the competition.

The hosts will be hosting PSG three days after their La Liga match against Alaves on February 13. Their 2-0 defeat against Sevilla in the Copa del Rey first leg was quite a blow for Ronald Koeman’s team, and they will be motivated to turn the tides to their favor once again. On the other side of the showdown, PSG are packed full of stars such as Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi, but their most expensive signing,

Neymar

, could miss both legs against Barcelona due an injury.

While the

Champions League 2020-21 round of 16 line ups

for this match have not been announced yet, former La Masia player Xavi Simmons, who moved to PSG in 2019, will be hoping to get his debut in the Champions League against his old club’s senior team if things go in their favor. Of course his chances of playing in such a crucial and intense match are quite slim, and he might need to wait until next season to finally get his chance.

Sevilla v Dortmund
  • Date: Wednesday, February 17

  • Time: 08:00 PM GMT

The Champions League 2021 round of 16 first week will continue with

Sevilla

hosting Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. While the Spanish club are known for their feats in the Europa League, and the fact that they have won the second best continental title in Europe a phenomenal 6 times, they will be hoping to qualify further into the Champions League as they have started to aim higher up the chain. They managed to beat Barcelona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey Semi-Finals, thanks to goals from Jules Kounde and former Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Sevilla will surely be motivated to go head to head against Borussia Dortmund, who recently lost 2-1 against

SC Freiburg

, and will be hosting Hoffenheim on February 13, before visiting Sevilla for the

Champions League 2021 round of 16

.

Porto v Juventus
  • Date: Wednesday, February 17

  • Time: 08:00 PM GMT

The Sevilla versus Dortmund game is not the only match of the second day in the 2020-21 Champions league round of 16 fixtures of the first week, as

FC Porto

will be hosting Juventus at the same time as Dortmund visit Sevilla. The Portuguese club will surely be looking to their main striker, Mehdi Taremi, to once again deliver and score against the Turin-based club. Taremi has managed to score an outstanding 12 goals and provide 9 assists in a total of 23 games across all competitions for Porto this season.

On the other side of the pitch, we will be having

Cristiano Ronaldo

, who does not seem to be stopping from breaking records any time soon.  The 36-year-old goal machine is still going strong as he aims to break even more records.

Week 2

The first week of the

Champions League 2021 round of 16

was absolutely thrilling, as we got to see some of the best clashes in recent time, from Barcelona’s usual humiliation, to Liverpool’s tight grip on the game and to

Erling Braut Haaland

and Kylian Mbappe’s magical nights, where they managed to outshine the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as many witnessed the new generation taking the old generation by storm.

Before going any further into the details about 2020-21 Champions league round of 16 fixtures of the second week, let us have a recap of what happened in the first week. On Tuesday, PSG went head to head with Barcelona, as Neymar had to sit-out the game due to an injury, which was quite disappointing for many as they expected to see the Brazilian forward play against his old team and even score a goal or two to rub salt in Barcelona’s wound.

In a somewhat expected manner, however,

Kylian Mbappe

managed to outshine Lionel Messi and help his club humiliate the Catalan club 4-1 with a stunning hat-trick. In other games Mehdi Taremi helped Porto gain an early lead against Juventus as they won 2-1 at home, while Erling Braut Haaland scored a brace to ensure a victory for Borussia Dortmund against Sevilla.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who have been suffering dearly in the Premier League lately, managed to keep a clean sheet as they won 2-0. Now let’s have a look at the 2020/21 Champions league round of 16 matches in the second week of the competition.

Atletico Madrid v Chelsea
  • Date: Tuesday, February 23

  • Time: 8:00 PM GMT

Next up in the Champions League 2021 round of 16, we have

Atletico Madrid

hosting Chelsea, with both clubs motivated enough to fight hard for a qualification into the next round. The two clubs have a good transfer relationship with each other throughout the years, with many stars switching back and forth between the two.

Of course good transfer relations have nothing to do with the rivalry that is certainly going to give us a thrilling match, as Atletico Madrid will be hoping to end their poor run of games in La Liga with a win in the Champions League, which could also motivate them to keep their lead in Spanish league ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona. Their recent 0-2 defeat against Levante means that Diego Simeone should think more about the intensity of their play, as his squad have slipped up quite a lot in recent games.

This will be Chelsea’s first European night under the management of Thomas Tuchel, who only recently replaced club legend Frank Lampard after the Englishman did not manage to get the required results after spending more than €300 million in the 2020 summer transfer window.

Tuchel’s run as Chelsea boss has been satisfactory enough for the players to have high morale, as they have won five of the seven games since the German manager’s arrival, while drawing the other two. The former PSG boss is yet to lose with the London-based club, as he hopes to continue his unbeaten run even further with a win or at least a draw against Diego Simeone’s side.

Lazio v Bayern Munich
  • Date: Tuesday, February 23

  • Time: 8:00 PM GMT

Champions League 2020-21 round of 16 line ups for the second week matches are yet to be revealed, but whoever goes on the pitch wearing Bayern Munich’s shirt,

Lazio

are surely going to have a tough time against last season’s champions, who managed to become the second club in football history after Barcelona to win the sextuple. The Bavarians’ main striker Robert Lewandowski has been on phenomenal form and has been tearing through opposition defenders while scoring outstanding goals week in week out.

The Italian side have been in fine form recently, as they have won four of their last five league games, currently sitting fourth on the league table. While there have been rumors of Lazio being heavily suspended due to allegations of the club not following the regulations and providing false information about their coronavirus tests, Simone Inzaghi will be focused only on facing Hansi Flick’s formidable side, who have just hit a rough patch with a draw and a loss in two games.

Atalanta v Real Madrid
  • Date: Wednesday, February 24

  • Time: 8:00 PM GMT

The Champions League 2021 round of 16 is certainly going to be a difficult one for

Atalanta

as they go against the competition’s record winners, Real Madrid, who managed to win the trophy three times in succession under Zinedine Zidane. Los Blancos are the most decorated club in the Champions League history with thirteen trophies, and have quite a knack for qualifying to the next round even if they play badly in the first leg.

The Italian side might feel like they have nothing to lose and could throw everything they have got at the Spanish giants, which will without a doubt add to the excitement of the match, as we wait to see who prevails in the first leg of the Champions League 2021 round of 16. Atalanta are currently sitting 7th on the Serie A table and Real Madrid are battling their way through to the La Liga title itself as they chase Atletico Mardid.

Their 1-0 win against Real Valladolid will certainly affect Real Madrid players’ morale as they look for an early lead in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 campaign away at Gewiss Stadium.

Monchengladbach v Manchester City
  • Date: Wednesday, February 24

  • Time: 8:00 PM GMT

Even though it will not be too much of a David versus Goliath situation,

Borussia Monchengladbach

will definitely have a tough time dealing with Manchester City’s in-form squad, who have been implementing Pep Guardiola’s tactics to the point, with the whole team ticking like clockwork, as they even managed to break a record by winning a mind-blowing fifteen games in a row, a record which was previously co-held by Preston North End and Arsenal, who had both won fourteen games in a row.

Monchengladbach are currently eighth in Bundesliga, having won only one of their last five league games. The only factor that could have had a positive effect on the German club’s game was the fact that they have played at their own stadium. This time, however, everything is different as Monchengladbach is set to host the Premier League side in Budapest, rather than their own stadium, due to the latest Coronavirus regulations.

Gladbach don’t seem to catch a break, as their manager Marco Rose shockingly announced that he is set to take charge of league rivals Borussia Dortmund next season. He even blamed his side’s 2-1 defeat at home against

Mainz

to be the reason behind this early announcement. The shock defeat shook everyone and caused a great deal of unrest at the club. We will have to wait and see how they plan to go up against an in-form and quite lethal Manchester City this Wednesday.

The 

Champions League 2020/21 round of 16 live streams

will be available for all of the matches mentioned above, with some of the bigger streaming services covering all of the games via their several multi-lingual branches. You can catch the games via DStv Now, beIN Sports Connect, Sky Sport 7, BT Sport 2 and DAZN.
