The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 continues this week!

Tuesday and Wednesday means the second (and final) set of Champions League Round of 16 action. Last week saw Gonzalo HIGUAIN scoring a pair and Sergio AGUERO also finding the back of the net. Here are this week’s matches:

Champions League Round of 16 – Tuesday:

Bayern Munich vs. Besiktas
Chelsea (Willy CABALLERO) vs. FC Barcelona (Lionel MESSI)

Wednesday:

Sevilla (Ever BANEGA, Joaquin CORREA, Guido PIZARRO, Nicolas PAREJA, Gabriel MERCADO) vs. Manchester United (Sergio ROMERO, Marcos ROJO)
Shakhtar Donetsk vs. AS Roma (Diego PEROTTI, Federico FAZIO, Jonathan SILVA)

London’s showdown is the big one with Chelsea hosting FC Barcelona. Lionel MESSI has never scored against Chelsea and last time around he missed a crucial penalty kick at the Camp Nou which would have taken them through to the final. Willy CABALLERO will start on the bench for Chelsea.

Diego PEROTTI will look to add to his goal scoring form as AS Roma are away to Shakhtar Donetsk.

In Spain involving Sevilla and Manchester United is the one with the most Argentinians involved, with five players with Sevilla and two with Manchester United.
