Champions League Round of 16 2nd Leg Preview

The Champions!

Real Madrid (2) vs. (1) Ajax

Real Madrid for all intents and purposes should progress to the quarter finals but with successive losses albeit to Barcelona Ajax should not be disheartened to get something in Madrid. Ajax have scored 13 and conceded only 1 since they lost to Madrid and while Madrid are different team in the Champions League this should be an interesting fixture to watch. 

Borussia Dortmund (0) vs. (3) Tottenham

Tottenham might not be doing great in the League but having thrashed Dortmund 3-0 they have one foot in the quarter finals. Dortmund have been extremely poor over the last few weeks and saw their lead in the Bundesliga cut down to goal difference this weekend. Dortmund have a massive mountain to climb if they want to reach the quarter finals and while Tottenham are known to bottle it I think this is one game that they should get through. 

FC Porto (1) vs. (2) AS Roma

Porto and AS Roma have been in decent form going into this game although they both lost their weekend fixtures. FC Porto have an away goal while Roma have the lead and they will feel that if they do not concede they could reach the quarter finals. An interesting game to watch. 

Paris Saint Germain (2) vs. (0) Man United

PSG and United are two teams in great form but United have it all to do in the 2nd leg as they trail PSG who have 2 away goals. PSG have been known to bottle it in the Champions League but their team this season is different and PSG should see through United to reach the quarter finals although United won’t give up without a fight.
