Here is a brief recap of the round of 16 second leg UEFA Champions League matches. FC Porto crushed FC Basel, 4-0 (Aggregate* 5-1 Porto). Schalke came extremely close to upsetting Real Madrid, beating them 4-3, but losing 5-4 on aggregate. After drawing with Shakhtar Donetsk in the first leg, 0-0, Bayern Munich steamrolled them 7-0. Ten-men (Ibrahimovic was sent off in the 31st minute) PSG tied Chelsea, 2-2, advancing to the Quarter-Finals on away goals (aggregate 3-3 PSG). Atletico Madrid beat Bayer Leverkusen, 1-0, but were tied on aggregate, 1-1, with neither team having an away goal. After extra-time conceded no goals the match went into penalties, which Atletico won, 3-2. Arsenal made a valiant attempt to comeback from their 3-1 first leg defeat to Monaco, but only scored two of the the three goals they needed to advance. Barcelona cruised to a 1-0 victory over Manchester City and if not for Man City’s goalkeeper, Joe Hart, would’ve beaten them by a much larger score (aggregate 3-1 Barcelona). Carlos Tevez lead Juventus to a 3-0 win against Borussia Dortmund, netting two of the goals himself and assisting the other one (aggregate 5-1 Juventus).Well, there is your recap of the second legs of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

*Aggregate is the sum of goals both teams score in the first and second leg. Check out What is the Champions League to learn more about the Champions League. Click the link below to read it.


P.S. The winning team always is put after the scoreline if it is unclear who the winner of the match is in the text. For example if Tottenham beat Arsenal 2-1 I would write, “The scoreline at the end of the match read 2-1 Tottenham.”
