Juventus v Atletico Madrid – 8pm (Tom)
Atletico won the first leg 2-0
Since that game Juventus have won 3 Serie A games on the bounce
Beat Bologna and Napoli away, and Udinese at home
Atletico have also won their 3 La Liga games – all to nil!
2-0 v Villarreal, 0-2 v Sociedad and 1-0 v Leganes
Juventus are undefeated at home all season – Only drawn 2 games
Ronaldo has 22 goals in 32 games v Atletico in his career
And was rested at the weekend
BUT, Atlectio have 4 clean sheets in a row in the CL
And 3 in a row v Juventus – so they won’t concede many, if at all!
Tip: Under 2.5 goals (1.73) / Ronaldo anytime (2.12)
Score Prediction: 1-0
Team to Progress: Atletico to go through (1.25)

Man City v Schalke – 8pm (Olly)
City lead the tie from their dramatic 3-2 win in the first leg. 2-1 down with 10 men until the 85th min. Ended up winning 3-2.
Since this loss, Schalke have continued their bad form an leaking goals.
They have conceded 11 goals in their last 3 games (losing all 3:, Werder Bremen, Dusseldorf and Mainz) Not looking good.
There have been loads of upsets so far, but I cant see there being one here.
City have won all their games since (well, one on pens) and are looking good. They are at home too so even more reason why this should be a given.
There is no value in City to win. (They obviously will though)
Sterling is on fire at the moment. Scored the winner in the last game and banged in a hat trick over the weekend vs Watford.
Tip: Sterling to score anytime (1.94)
Team to Progress: City to go through (1.01)

Barcelona v Lyon – 8pm (Will)
First leg finished 0-0
Lyon could have been 2-0 up if it wasnt for 2 great saves
Since then they have won 4 of 5, incl beating Real Madrid twice
Only lost 1 game at home in the league this season
Lyon have drawn their last 6 CL games
Barca have reached Quarters 11 times in a row
Messi has scored 15 in last 12 league games
TIP: Draw HT Barca FT (4.4) / Messi wincast (1.63) – too low

Bayern Munich v Liverpool – 8pm (Tom)
The first leg finished 0-0 – all to play for
Since the 1st leg Bayern have won 3 Bundesliga games
And scored 12 goals – 5 v Monchengladbach and 6 v Wolfsburg!
Lewandowski has 4 in his last 2 games
Bayern were undefeated in the group stages at home – Drew 1 game 1-1 v Ajax
But conceded in 2 of the 3 group games
Liverpool have W2 D1 since the 1st leg – Scored 5 v Watford and 4 v Burnley
Liverpool lost all 3 away games in the Group stage – only scored 1 goal
Tip: Bayern win (2.15) / Bayern win & BTTS (3.95)
Score Prediction: 2-1
Team to Progress: Bayern (1.88) – Liverpool will then focus on the Premier League!
