Uefa Champions League predictions, fixtures and results: 21 – 22 February 2023

Liverpool and Real Madrid collide as Inter Milan host FA Porto, Manchester City go to RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt meet Napoli in Champions League last 16 this week.

The Uefa Champions League Round of 16 continues this week, with the second half of the first leg fixtures taking centre stage this Tuesday and Wednesday across the continent.

A European tie for the ages awaits at Anfield on Tuesday night, as six-time champions Liverpool go up against continental kings Real Madrid, who have scooped up a record 14 titles over the years.

The Reds came through their pool with a whopping 15 points but still managed to finish second, while Los Blancos topped Group F despite racking up two fewer points than their English knockout opponents.

Wednesday brings a pair of intriguing clashes, as reigning English Premier League champions Manchester City continue their quest to add a Champions League title in their last 16 tie at RB Leipzig.

Pep Guardiola’s men coasted through unbeaten to finish five points clear at the top of Group G, while their German hosts progressed behind Real Madrid in a distinctly lopsided pool.

It’s a well matched contest at the San Siro, meanwhile, as serial knockout qualifiers FC Porto go to Inter Milan for their first knockout leg.

The Portuguese side recovered from a pair of opening defeats to win four on the spin in topping Group B, while the Italians knocked out Barcelona in joining Bayern Munich in making it out of a devilish Group C.

Tuesday also sees Napoli make the trip to face Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

The Serie A club dominated their pool alongside Liverpool to reach the Round of 16, while the Germans outdid Sporting Lisbon and Marseille to come through Group D along with Tottenham.

Bayern Munich were winners in last week’s first set of last 16 first legs, picking up a win by the only goal at Paris Saint Germain as Kingsley Coman came back to haunt his former club while Kylian Mbappe had a goal ruled out for offside.

A pair of London-based EPL clubs were edged out away from home as Chelsea lost at Borussia Dortmund, while Tottenham fell to an early AC Milan goal at a raucous San Siro.

It leaves both Premier League sides with work to do in their return legs a fortnight from now.

Benfica, meanwhile, picked up a handy 2-0 victory in Belgium away to Club Bruges, putting them in pole position for a place in the quarter-finals.
