    On non-World Cup years the annual UEFA Champions league tournament is the biggest competition of the year on the club level. After 6 group stage “round- robin” style games the top two teams from each group proceeds. With now 16 teams remaining in the competition to fight for a place in the finals in Madrid.

    The tournament is a chance for multiple clubs across Europe to prove they are not only the best in their region or even in their nation, but to prove they're the best on the continental stage. The tournament pulls the best from every UEFA registered country, from England to Italy to Russia to Serbia to Greece, if you are a fan of the sport you are guaranteed to get enjoyment out of the games.

    With the tournament now reaching a new stage teams have been drawn for the round of 16 on Monday 12/17/18 with the first first place team being randomly paired against second place teams from groups, as long as they aren't from the teams same domestic league or in the same group that the team participated in.
