-

Barcelona is currently sitting in first place in La Liga, as they have been boosted by a weaker than expected Real Madrid side. Barcelona has not lost in La Liga play so far this year, as they have managed to compile a record of 19-5-0.

Chelsea on the other hand, is currently sitting in fourth place in the English Premier League, far off of the pace that is currently being set by Man City at the top of the table. Chelsea is currently in a pitched battle with Liverpool and Tottenham for Champions League positioning next season - all three teams desperately want that third place spot in the table.

This should definitely be one of the most interesting match-ups of the Round of 16 - who do you think will take it?
