WINNERS

Juventus

Juventus and Mr Champions league, Ronaldo are desperately looking to secure Europe most coveted trophy and avoiding the heavyweights at this stage all but guarantees a place in the quarterfinals.

Paris Saint-Germain

Dortmund are definitely no walk-overs but with the squad depth in this PSG team they have a huge chance of making it past this stage.

Lewandowski

The ‘Pole’ will definitely fancy his chances to add to his 10 goals tally in the Champions league coming up against a shaky Chelsea defense.

Atalanta

Getting the easiest draw among the second-placed teams is enough to jubilate but they will still need to be topnotch against a difficult Valencia side

Salah, Mane, Firmino
