you really could not have made this round much better, except maybe putting PSG up against ac Milan, and maybe giving man u a little tougher draw, but they can save both of those for the round of eight, or man u can go home early, and concentrate on the league.

top three matches of the round of 16:
1. man citeh v barca, this is just a stupid silly matchup and it cant get much better.
2. galatasary v Chelsea. jose v drogba
3. b munich v arsenal, wow!!!
