Tuesday 25 February, 7pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)
Has it really been eight years since Chelsea defeated Bayern to win their first – and so far only – Champions League crown? A lot has changed since then (the Blues have had about 26 different managers for a start) but this remains a massive tie between two European heavyweights. While Frank Lampard’s young Chelsea side will be the underdogs, Bayern are in the unusual position of not running away with this season’s Bundesliga title. It’s all to play for.
Tuesday 25 February, 7.15pm, BT Sport 3 HD (CH 529)
All is not well at Barcelona. Following accusations from sporting director Eric Abidal that the players have not been giving their all, Lionel Messi was forced to ditch his vanilla media persona to refute the claims. Now the rumour mill is swirling with suggestions the Argentine could leave at the end of the season. And to make matters worse, Barca now have to travel to Italy to face a dangerous Napoli side that defeated Liverpool in the group stage. Is the Catalan empire about to crumble?
Wednesday 26 February, 7.30pm, BT Sport 3 HD (CH 529)
Lyon may be familiar faces in the last 16, but they’re having a bit of a ’mare domestically. Way off the pace in Ligue 1, and without dangerman Memphis Depay due to injury, Juventus will be thinking their French opponents are there for the taking. Juve, meanwhile, are looking good for a ninth consecutive Serie A title. While this tournament is capable of providing shocks, Lyon have got plenty of work to do if they want to reach the quarter-finals.
Wednesday 26 February, 7pm, BT Sport 2 HD (CH 528)
Sunglasses at the ready, because this clash is packed with so many stars it could well blind you. Forget statistical breakdowns and talk of tactics: this A-list showdown is all about two clubs who crave European glory more than anything else. Agüero versus Benzema? Sterling versus Hazard? De Bruyne versus Modrić? Pep versus Zizou? It doesn’t get much better than this. Throw one of football’s most iconic stadiums into this irresistible broth and you’ve got yourself a truly unmissable night of drama.
