Results of 2020/2010 Champions League Round of 16

The first leg, round of 16 matches of the UEFA champions league have concluded. PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern and Dortmund look set to qualify for the quarter finals.

Barcelona lost at home to PSG by 4 goals to 1. PSG need to be very carefully as Bacelona have shown that they have the ability to come back in situations like this.

Liverpool is almost certain of qualification. They just have to avoid defeat at home to Leipzig in the 2nd leg.

Chelsea did a determined hard fought win against Atletico they only need a repeated performance against them at Stamford bridge.

Bayern easily displaced Lazio 4-1, I don’t think Lazio has got any chance of qualification.

Porto edged Juventus in the first leg, but they still have a lot of work to do in the 2nd leg.

Manchester City are in cruise control and should not have any problem qualifying for the quaters.

Real Madrid beat Atalanta in their away match, they should have no problem in the next match at home.

Dortmund just need a repeated performance at home in the second and they should qualify.

But it should be said that there are no guarantees in the champions league. ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN.

Frank Lampard has been Sacked

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard has been sacked as Chelsea manager just after 18 months in charge. Lampard lead Chelsea to 4th position in the league and FA cup final last season.  He has also helped Chelsea easily qualify for the second round in pole position, in this season’s champions league.

Chelsea  started this season’s premier league campaign on a good note, hoping to fight for the title. Towards the end of 2020, they were top of the premier league. But things have turned sour as Chelsea have lost 5 out of their past 8 matches. They are presently 9th on the table.

Lampard’s sack was confirmed on Monday 25 January by the Chelsea management citing poor run of results.

Even Chelsea’s last 3-1 win over Luton in their lasted FA cup match couldn’t  save him

Lampard was appointed on a 3year contract in July 2019. He is disappointed not to have had the time to take the club forward.

However, Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich said Lampard’s status as an important icon of the club remains intact despite his sacking.

Thomas Tuchel

Chelsea has appointed former PSG coach: Thomas Tuchel to take over from Lampard. He may be available  as early as Chelsea’s home game against Wolves on Wednesday
