Last week's Champions League fixtures brought two blowout victories and two hard-fought, enthralling encounters. Bayern Munich handily dispatched a Shakhtar Donetsk side that Pep Guardiola said would challenge for the title in the Budesliga (troll much, Pep?), to the tune of a 7-0 result. Porto also put in a rousing performance against Basel, coming away 4-0 victors and booking a place in the last 8.

The other two results were much more thrilling from a neutral's perspective, with Schalke very nearly overturning a 2-0 defeat in their home leg against Real Madrid with a wide-open 4-3 victory at the Bernabeu, and Chelsea falling out of the competition in extra time thanks to former Blue David Luiz and his Brazilian compatriot and center back partner at Paris Saint-Germain, Thiago Silva.

Chelsea's exit leaves just two Premier League clubs in contention for the most coveted trophy in world football, and neither enter their second-leg matches in particularly good shape. Arsenal travel to take on Monaco in a tough spot after losing 3-1 at the Emirates, and will need to score at least three goals on the road to qualify for the next round, while Manchester City have a slightly less insurmountable 2-1 deficit to overturn in Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

Atletico Madrid will be hoping to overturn a 1-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen at their home ground, while Borussia Dortmund will be hopeful of continuing their strong European campaign as they return home after a 2-1 first-leg defeat against Italian giants Juventus.
