UEFA final 16

As the beginning rounds of the Union of European Football Association (UEFA) Champions League came to an end, we were able to see lots of unexpected things, such as the premier league teams all playing at an extremely similar level of soccer; leaving them neck in neck to make it to the Champions League round of 16 ties. Even though we were able to see some unexpected things, a lot of the teams from previous years also made the round of 16.

As the group stages come to an end, we are able to see teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool in the round of 16 ready to compete with some other great teams fighting for the chance to win the Champions League. With the round of 16 draws in the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday, Dec. 14. UEFA has announced that the first legs are scheduled to begin on Feb. 16 and with the 2nd legs on March 9; the draw for the quarter-finals, semifinals and finals will be on March 19. 

When the UEFA Champions League started, new stars began to rise, like Erling Braut Haaland reaching the 15 goal mark in record time. Carrying his team Borussia Dortmund to the final 16. Teams like Manchester United were good before, but they did not perform as well in the beginning rounds of The Champions League. Overall the group stages ended up being well-played games because the drawings for the group stages were interesting with two powerhouses like Juventus and Barcelona playing each other showing us 2 legends Leo Messi and Christiano Ronaldo. 

As we can tell by the teams in the final 16, the months of February and March are going to be filled with plenty of interesting games and results leading to the final which will hopefully be two very good teams battling each other for the UEFA Champions League trophy.
