This morning the draw for the matches of the Round of 16 of the Champions League 2020/2021 took place. Barça will face Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid against Atalanta, Atlético de Madrid against Chelsea and Sevilla against Borussia Dortmund.
The Champions League draw was held in Nyon, Switzerland, at 12 noon today, Monday, December 14. The four Spanish teams already know their rivals. Barça, Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid and Sevilla already know who their rivals will be in the Round of 16. The first leg will take place on February 16, 17, 23 and 24, 2021. And the return match, a few weeks later, on March 9, 10, 16, 17, 2021.
The team from Barcelona has been the worst stopped. He will face the feared Paris Saint-Germain, finalist of the 2019/2020 Champions League. The match between Barcelona and PSG is one of the most anticipated of this tie. The Blaugranas are beginning to catch their breath after winning Levante on Sunday, although the crisis continues to haunt Can Barça.
Real Madrid- Atalanta
A priori, the white team has been one of the best unemployed in the draw. Real Madrid will face the modest Italian team, Atalanta. However, football is surprising and Gian Piero Gasperini’s players can surprise the round of 16. No rival, and less in the second round is small. Zidane’s men are on a roll after beating Atlético de Madrid on Saturday and the last two games against Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund.
Atlético de Madrid- Chelsea
Atlético de Madrid has a tall rival, Chelsea. Simeone’s men will have to remove the claw they did not get against Real Madrid on Saturday if they want to stay alive in Europe. For its part, the English team is having a great season and is third in the Premier League behind Tottenham and Liverpool. Another great match of the Eighth of the Champions League.
Sevilla, current UEFA Europa League champions, are having a great season. Lopetegui’s men will face Borussia Dortmund. The German team lost just a few days ago against Real Madrid and we hope it does not complicate things for the Seville team.
