The UEFA Champions League is finally back after a two-month break and you can bet football fans around the world are already preparing for the upcoming game nights with their friends.
The group stage came to a close in December and now it’s time for the real action as the Last 16 begins.
There are four matches set to take place this week on Tuesday and Wednesday, and with giants like Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid squaring off against each other, fans better be prepared for any twist or turn the match week might have in store.
We will be taking a concise preview of the Juventus Vs. Tottenham, Real Madrid Vs. Paris Saint-Germain matches and others will follow…
JUVENTUS VS. TOTTENHAM
Another Titan for Spurs to Topple?
Tottenham enjoyed a memorable group campaign after taking four points off back-to-back reigning holders Real Madrid, which included a stunning 3-1 win over Los Blancos at Wembley.
Juventus, who were beaten to the top spot in their group by Barcelona, are a historic giant cut from the same cloth as Real and would be another huge scalp for the Premier League side, who are definitely still ‘small fish’ in this ‘big fish’ pond.
It’s not exactly David vs Goliath, but it’s not a level playing field either.
REAL MADRID VS. PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
The Ultimate Old vs New
Real Madrid are reigning back-to-back European champions, the most iconic club in the history of the entire history of the European Cup/Champions League. PSG are upstarts formed in 1970 and are only enjoying their current success because of a wealthy owner.
But the two are equals on the pitch now and there is plenty for Real to be scared of in the French club’s ranks, especially after they set a new goals record in the group stage.
If PSG wins, it could well be the catalyst for more to come in Paris. On the other hand, they have choked so many times in previous seasons, people are still not ready to take them seriously.
