As if it were a chapter of Game of Thrones, Wolves and Dragons will be the faces to define one of the squares heading to quarters. Romanistas and portuenses will throw bites and flares in one of the most difficult predictions.

The knockout stages of the Champions League bring suspense to stop a moving train. It seems that the restless spirit of the filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock guided the hands of those who selected the pareos for this phase, where we can see a few spectacular duels.

Among those who anticipate more awake, is the match between Liverpool and Bayern, no less than two pentacampeones of the most prestigious club tournament in Europe. Record, epic and quality distinguish both onces, which first in Germany and then in the city of The Beatles, will give a luxury cross. If I had to choose, I prefer those of Jürgen Klopp to advance.

Juventus and Atlético de Madrid will be part of another advanced final, which will be marked by the morbidity that surrounds the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the city that saw him shine for a decade. The Simeone, slightly inferior to the forceful Italian squad, will try to grow and keep alive the dream of playing the final at home.

The renewed Borussia Dortmund will have another test of height against the Tottenham of Mauricio Pochettino, in what will be a hand to hand between two clubs willing to settle certain debts with their respective hobbies. Those of the Ruhr Basin would leave with the tag of favorites, because the Londoners still do not finish curdle a result of weight in spite of staying among the elite in the last seasons.

A historic wounded and an emerging with desire are successful epithets to describe the story that will have as protagonists Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain. In the absence of a clear option to opt, the reason indicates that the French should prevail, although the Red Devils could remember better times and impose their caste.

As if it were a chapter of Game of Thrones, Wolves and Dragons will be the faces to define one of the squares heading to quarters. Romanistas and portuenses will throw bites and flares in one of the most difficult predictions.

Once again, luck meant that two “spoiled” ones from UEFA, such as Real Madrid and Barcelona, ​​were well off in the lottery. While the -for now- unconvincing continental champions were paired with the “accessible” Ajax, the Catalans had a Olympique de Lyon that is not as fierce as some people paint it.

Finally, others who seem to have another foot on the next step are the Manchester City men. Fate determined that his opponents were the Germans of Schalke 04, eleven who, even having changed their faces after a fairly gray start, do not see enough tools to complicate the lives of the citizens of Pep Guardiola.

The first leg matches are scheduled for February 12, 13, 19 and 20, while the second leg will take place in March, on days 5, 6, 12 and 13.
