After its winter break we are back with the Champions league knockout phase. This evening Bayern Leverkusen host Paris St Germain and in the tie of the night Manchester City host Barcelona.

City and Barca are both neck and neck in their respective league title races and both are still in the all the cup competitions they entered. Stat of the night? well did you know that Lionel Messi has never scored on a premier league ground in 12 hours of play.

Look at the players playing. David Silva, Yaya Toure, Alvaro Negredo, Cesc Fabregas, Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta oh and Lionel Messi. Sit back and enjoy what on paper should be 90 minutes of positive attack minded football by two of the most exciting teams in world football.
