Round of 16 preview
Defending champs Chelsea are already out of the tournament and will participate in the Europa League, while cashed up Manchester City are out of European tournaments altogether. Nonetheless, three British teams - the English Premier League's Manchester United and Arsenal, and Scotland's Glasgow Celtic - remain.
However, if these British challengers are going to lay their hands on the silverware, they will have to do the seemingly impossible and get past the Spanish giants of Barcelona and Real Madrid first. The round of 16 features eight head-to-head knockout ties over two legs, with the highlight being Real Madrid versus Man Utd - only one team can survive.
