The Champions League Round of 16 second leg kicks off on Tuesday with some blockbuster action set to take place this week. Here are our tips for this week’s fixtures.


The Gunners will welcome Porto looking to bounce back after the Portuguese giants edged the first leg at home by a 1-0 scoreline.

The Portuguese side are coming into this game holding the advantage, but Arsenal are currently in excellent form with the defeat to Porto their only defeat in their last five matches played.

At the same time, the visitors haven’t won a match in their last 22 trips to England. Arsenal should get the win here.


Reigning La Liga champions Barcelona will take on Napoli with both sides seemingly in good form as they are unbeaten in their last five outings.

However, the Italian side come into the clash with a point to prove having been held to a 1-1 draw by Torino and are languishing in seventh position in Serie A.

Taking recent form into account, Barca should manage to get a win tonight at home at Camp Nou.


Borussia Dortmund will host PSV having won three, drew one, and lost one in their last five fixtures while PSV are unbeaten in their previous five matches.

The first leg ended in a 1-1 stalemate, but Dortmund are a formidable threat at home and are likely to get the job done.

However, don’t write off the visitors in what will prove an enthralling encounter, but tip Dortmund to be the overall winner on the night.

Inter Milan

In the final fixture of the round, we have Spanish giants Atletico Madrid facing last season’s finalists Inter Milan.

Inter are in fine form and comfortably sit atop the Serie A standings with five straight wins in their last five matches played.

As for coach Diego Simeone’s side, they are going through an underwhelming spell after suffering a 1-0 defeat in the first leg at San Siro.

The visitors on current form should finish the job and clinch an important win away from home at the Metropolitan Stadium.
