The real test for two favorites to win the most prestigious soccer league in the world starts today. What can we expect from the Champions League 2023/2024 Round of 16?

Real Madrid to face RB Leipzig

Face-off against Leipzig seems to be a pure formality for the Madrid club. Recently, they won an incredible match in La Liga against the second in the standings - Girona. They left them no chance and annihilated them 4 - 0. Vinicius Junior and Jude Bellingham seem to be in an other-worldly disposition, and Real Madrid's offensive is considered to be unstoppable.

Will they win the whole Champions League, though? Questions arise, but they are definitely among the main pretenders.

Manchester City against Kopenhagen

The defending champions are about to play against the Danish club. Experts are unified in the opinion that it stands no chance against the Guardiola's machine. There is only one satisfactory result for the Manchester club, and it is to win the Champions League. After the glorious return to the top of the standings of the Premier League with the help of recovered geniuses of Kevin DeBruyne and Erling Hallaand they seem to be on the fast track to victory. Who is going to stop them?
