The headquarters of the UEFA in Nyon (Switzerland) will host this Monday from 12.00 hours (peninsular time) the draw of the round of 16 of the Champions League, with the four Spanish teams looking to meet their rival, which in the case of Real Madrid and the Atlético de Madrid It is very likely to be of great entity.
Neither of the two Madrid teams knew how to tie the first place of their respective groups of the first phase, which on this occasion condemns them to a surely high level crossing, a situation that will prevent the FC Barcelona and Valencia, who finished first and have more affordable rivals, although some are more dangerous than another.
The 13-time European champion and the mattress team will not be among the series heads and will also have to play in their stadiums first on February 18-19 or 25-26. He Liverpool, he Manchester City, he Bayern Munich, he PSG, the Juventus and the Red Bull Leipzig They will be your possible opponents.
Of these six, the French champion cannot pair with the Real Madrid players and the 'Vecchia Signora' cannot do it with those of Diego Pablo Simeone, for having already been framed in the group stage, and the team sponsored by the energy drink is the great desired by both for this first tie because the rest are serious candidates.
On the opposite pole of the Leipzig are the 'reds', current champions and surely the most fit team from the actuality. Those of Juergen Klopp are on the rise and their electric football led by Mané and Salah and having the return at Anfield makes them a high level obstacle.
From the Premier, both can also play the Manchester City of Pep Guardiola, an opponent of great potential despite the fact that in the Premier League he is not scratching at a good level since his history in the tournament in recent years is not positive or according to the level of your template.
In favor of the Spaniards it would be to have eliminated the Catalan coach in two semifinals when he was leading Bayern, the only one who has passed with full points and, perhaps, a step below in terms of 'danger' because his offensive machinery with Robert Lewandowski in a stellar plan is shining in the Champions, but not so much in the Bundesliga.
The same could be said of Juventus for the Real Madrid, although this crossing would have the addition of the 'morbid' of the reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo, while PSG represents the threat to Atlético that Kylian Mbappé suppose and Neymar.
A much better picture is glimpsed for FC Barcelona and the Valencia, who will have the advantage of playing around at Camp Nou and Mestalla thanks to their first group positions, and whose list of rivals in the hype is not so dangerous, which makes the 'che' dream about going to rooms for the first time since 2006-2007.
In the case of Ernesto Valverde's, the young Chelsea of Frank Lampard and the Tottenham of José Mourinho, current runner-up and at the moment somewhat improved with the arrival of Portuguese, they seem the most uncomfortable and of the greatest potential. For their part, for those of Albert Celades, the 'Spurs' and the German Borussia Dortmund of an old man known as Paco Alcácer represent his greatest threats.
The Italians Atalanta, debuting in the competition, and Naples, which is not in his best season, and the experienced French Olympique Lyon are the other possible rivals, all theoretically more affordable for the two Spanish teams.
