On Monday 16th the draws for the Champions League knockout rounds took place in Nyon (Switzerland), in addition to those of the Europa League. For the champions there were some very interesting draws in terms of clashes between teams.
The most balanced matches are: Chelsea-Bayern, Atletico-Liverpool, RealMadrid-ManchesterCity, on which it is difficult to make a prediction.
Probably the team that had the most favorable (lucky) draw was Juventus who will play Lyon. Even Tottenham was lucky, meeting Leipzig, which on paper is perhaps even easier than Lyon. Barcelona will meet Napoli, which although it is a difficult team, is certainly not a big danger. The atalanta, the Italian team that for the first time arrived in the Champions League and even in the round of 16, will meet Valencia. This will be a very interesting game. In theory, Valencia is favored which, as is the case in Spanish tradition, will be very difficult, but it is not certain that it will win.
The favorite teams for the Champions League final victory are surely Manchester City and Barcelona. Real and Juve have a good chance, in addition to PSG. The other teams will have a hard life.
