The Champions League Knock Out stage draws seem to be pregnant with some interesting fixtures due to the un-usual ending of this season's group stage competition. Teams Like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City and  Paris Saint Germain finishing  second in their respective groups will pose some big fears for those smaller profiled teams that made the Apex of their group in other to avoid them. These teams which include Leicester, Monaco, Napoli and even Arsenal might have fears of a bigger opposition in the knock out stage.

Leicester finishing first will avoid Manchester City and all other teams from England, also Porto who finished second in their group but bigger fears for them as Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain might possibly get paired with them though Benfica Bayern Leverkusen and Sevilla still present in their plates might give them some hope.

Group E winners Monaco will have equal fears as Leicester only this time PSG is taken out of the equation including the Pep Guardiola side Manchester City which might be of the same pedigree as PSG. While Napoli get toast with the probability of facing all the Runner Up's in all groups except theirs.

The Big boys might also have a possible clash as Real Madrid might face Juventus or Arsenal leaving them with a train of small boys including  Leicester, Monaco, and Napoli as Athletico Madrid and Barcelona both from their Nationality are group winner's

The Night will bring together eight fixtures from which four will emerge for the Quarter Finals after the home and away games are played.
