The Champions League curse struck again on Wednesday night as Barcelona, 2015 winners and the side heavily backed to become the first team to retain the trophy in its modern format, crashed out, outdone by the will of Diego Simeone and resilience of his Atletico Madrid side. Having silenced the triumvirate of Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar, the 2014 runners-up will have no doubt in their ability to keep out the remaining sides in this competition, who all lack the defensive pragmatism and organisation that saw Atletico progress on Wednesday. Simply, they are the hardest side to beat left.

It was their neighbours Real Madrid who eventually picked their way through when the two sides met in Lisbon two years ago, with a Sergio Ramos header in injury-time sparking their La Decima success. After a woeful showing in their quarter-final first leg defeat to Wolfsburg, Real once again turned to Cristiano Ronaldo to bail them out. Other sides will not be so forgiving.

Has there ever been a potential Champions League tie richer in subplot than the prospect of Manchester City vs Bayern Munich? City, in unchartered territory in the final months of Manuel Pellegrini's tenure in charge, taking on the man who will be looking to lift them to a new level next season in Pep Guardiola. It wouldn't be half-bad, would it?
