UEFA Champions League Round of 16 to kick off today with 2 matches

The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 will kick off with Copenhagen hosting Manchester City and Leipzig facing Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Defending champions Manchester City will travel to take on Copenhagen in the first leg of their round-of-16 tie at the Danish capital's Parken Stadium.

The game will start at 2000 GMT with Jose Maria Sanchez from Spain as referee.

Collecting eight points, Copenhagen finished Group A in second place ahead of Manchester United and Galatasaray in Group A to book a ticket to the knockout stages alongside group toppers Bayern Munich.

Manchester City advanced to the knockout phase leading Group G, becoming the eighth team in history to get the most points possible from the group stage by winning all six matches.

It is also the 11th season in a row that Pep Guardiola’s side advanced to the last 16.

First-leg matches will be played on Feb. 13-14 and Feb. 20-21, while the second-leg clashes will be held on March 5-6 and March 12-13.

The 2023-24 final will take place at London's Wembley Stadium on June 1.
