The teams are set for the round of 16, and when February rolls around Champions League will kick off once again. Which of these matchups looks to be the most tantalizing?
Leicester City vs. Sevilla
Leicester may be languishing close to the bottom of the English Premier League, but their maiden Champions League voyage has been nothing but fair weather so far. They take on a high-flying Sevilla side looking strong both in the league and in Europe.
Juventus vs. Porto
Juventus have cruised so far this year, both in Champions League and domestically. Porto will be a tough matchup for them, but the Italian champions should be able to deal with the current second-placed Portuguese side.
Dortmund vs. Benfica
This one should provide goals. Benfica both scored and conceded 10 during the group stage, while Dortmund have scored more than any other team in the competition. That spells fun.
Manchester City vs. Monaco
Manchester City look to have a distinct edge in this one, but Monaco have been one of the biggest surprises in Champions League so far. They have a young, talented group of attacking players, and Falcao is back at the top of his game after an injury-riddled few years. Don't write the Monegasques off.
Real Madrid vs. Napoli
Real Madrid are the favorites as they take on Napoli, but Maurizio Sarri's side are one of the most fun teams in Europe to watch. There should be plenty of goals and excitement in this one.
Atletico Madrid vs. Bayer Leverkusen
Our top team in the power rankings, Atletico will be a handful for Leverkusen. The Germans have been up and down this year, but there's a ton of quality in their team, and they play a beautifully attractive brand of soccer.
Paris Saint-Germain vs. Barcelona
PSG and Barcelona clash again. This time there's no Zlatan to spice it up, but the level of quality on display for both teams make this a tantalizing matchup. PSG have been wildly inconsistent this year, but with the winter break, January transfer window and two months for Unai Emery to work with his team, anything can happen.
Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich
Arsenal cannot catch a break. They finally finish first in their group, only to draw their old nemesis Bayern. It's a different Bayern than what we've seen for the last few years though, and Carlo Ancelotti's side looks the most vulnerable they have in a long time. They come up against the strongest Arsenal side in years, and this one looks like it'll be a real epic.
