Champions League – Round of 16 Draw Results for 2016


The Champions League is now entering their elimination stages and the round of 16 draw results have come in. The round of 16 matches will get underway on February 14th, 2017 with PSG facing Barcelona and Benfica facing Dortmund. Below you will find a listing of all of the Champions League round of 16 games as well as previews for each one.

Manchester City vs. AS Monaco

Manchester City is heavily favoured over Monaco in the outright winner odds for the 2016/2017 Champions League, but Monaco might turn out to be a stiffer test for Manchester than they would have hoped for going into this first elimination round. Monaco won more games than Manchester during the group stage of the competition and nearly matched them in goal scoring. These two teams have played twice previously, drawing both matches.

Europa League – Round of 32 Draw Results for 2016

With the final week of group play finishing off on the 9th of December, the elimination round of 32 is the next step for the Europa League, and the draw results for that round are in. Though, we do have to wait quite a while until we see any of these matches take place. The first set of games kicks off on February 16th.


The draw took place on the 12th of December and the resulting match-ups are as follows:

Europa League Round of 32 Draw

Athletic Club vs. APOEL
Legia Warszawa vs Ajax
Anderlecht vs Zenit
Astra Giurgiu vs Genk
Manchester United vs St-Étienne
Villarreal vs Roma
Ludogorets Razgrad vs København
Celta Vigo vs Shakhtar Donetsk
Olympiacos vs Osmanlıspor
Gent vs Tottenham Hotspur
Rostov vs Sparta Praha
Krasnodar vs Fenerbahçe
Borussia Mönchengladbach vs Fiorentina
AZ Alkmaar vs Lyon
Hapoel Beer-Sheva vs Beşiktaş
PAOK vs Schalke

The team that dominated the group stage of the competition was Shakhtar Donetsk. They won all six of their group stage games and outscored their opponents 21-6 over the course of those matches. They’ve been paired up with Celta Vigo in their round of 32 game, a team that they should have very little trouble dispatching. While Donetsk was clearing the 20 goal mark in their group play, Vigo was lucky to get 10. They also only won two games outright in their preliminary games, leaving three of them in a draw.

FC Zenit could be considered the next most successful team to emerge from the Europa League group stage. They racked up 15 points and 17 goals. Their round of 32 match up will be slightly more difficult than that of Shakhtar Donetsk. They’ll be facing Anderlecht, a team that only lost one game outright during the preliminary round and outscored their opponents 16 to 8.

Rounding out the top three is Schalke. They also racked up 15 points with five wins and a single loss, but their wins were a lot tighter than those of the other top teams to come out of the group stage. They outscored their opponents just 9 to 3. They are going up against PAOK in the round of 32 and that should be a fairly easy match up for Shalke. PAOK only scored 7 goals over the course of their preliminary games and given Schalke’s stout defence, that offensive production should be even more severely reduced.
