Seven teams still harbour genuine hopes of reaching the last four and most neutrals would be happy for a repeat of last week’s entertaining action.
On Tuesday, the spotlight will be on Stamford Bridge as Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea host French champions PSG. The visitors may hold the advantage, but it would be foolish to rule out the Premier League side.
Mourinho’s home record with Chelsea, as well as every other club he has managed, is absolutely phenomenal and the Blues will be confident of at least winning on the night. That away goal in Paris also provides the home side with reason to believe they can overturn this two goal deficit.
With the likes of Cavani and Lavezzi amongst their arsenal, PSG will be confident of finding the target – if Laurent Blanc’s side do score then suddenly Chelsea’s task becomes incredibly difficult.
However, the Blues will be buoyant at the news of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence.
Elsewhere on Tuesday, Real Madrid head to Germany with one foot already in the semi-final stage. It was Dortmund who knocked the La Liga giants out twelve months ago and Los Blancos will take immense satisfaction from exacting revenge against the Bundesliga side.
Even a repeat of Dortmund’s 4-1 win in Germany wouldn’t be enough for Jurgen Klopp’s men to progress; this contest is a formality.

On Wednesday, there’s two huge matches taking place in Germany and Spain respectively. At the Allianz arena, the English and German champions are locked at 1-1 heading into this one – however, Bayern Munich are the undoubted favourites to advance.
A rare Bundesliga defeat on Saturday doesn’t have any impact on proceedings as Bayern have already secured their domestic crown. The Germans have been rampant all season and will be a constant threat to an ageing United back four.
The Red Devils did well to soak up the pressure last week, but may struggle in front of the Munich crowd.
David Moyes’ men do boast the best away record in the Premier League, but this is challenge is on a completely different scale altogether – without Rooney and RVP (both injured), or Mata (cup-tied), it could be difficult for United to relieve the pressure and eventually that should tell.
However, United famously defied the odds against Bayern in the 1999 final and won’t be throwing the towel in just yet.
The night’s other match is arguably the most highly anticipated of the lot, as La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona do battle in the all-Spanish encounter.
After drawing 1-1 at the Nou Camp, this one hangs on a knife edge. The league meeting at the Vicente Calderon ended 0-0, which would be enough for Atletico to progress, but playing for that outcome would be far too dangerous against a Barcelona side that boasts the likes of Messi, Neymar and Iniesta.
It should be a thrilling week of action. Bring it on!
