The Round of 16 UEFA Champions League draw featured fewer highly anticipated matchups. The match between Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid is anticipated to be the most intriguing, but the match between Napoli and Barcelona also looks to be very exciting.

The majority of the remaining draws’ matchups include definite favourites. FC Copenhagen, the bottom-seeded team still in the competition, takes on Manchester City, the reigning UCL champions. Champions League contender Real Madrid will take on Bundesliga team RB Leipzig, while Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain will take on Real Sociedad in La Liga.

In addition, matches between Bayern Munich and Lazio, Porto and Arsenal, and PSV Eindhoven and Borussia Dortmund will be played in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League 2023–24 season. The fact that two USMNT stars will be facing off in the latter duel makes it very interesting. Giovanni Reyna of Borussia will be the opponent for PSV players Ricardo Pepi and Sergiño Dest.

Beginning on February 13th, 14th, 20th, and 21st, the UEFA Champions League will once again play its first round of 16 matches. March 5–6, 12–13 is when the second leg is scheduled to be played.

The match between the UCL Finals and London’s renowned Wembley Stadium is slated for June 1st.
