English Teams to Take on Hard Tasks as UCL Round of 16 Draws are Revealed


English Premier League teams are headed for harder tasks in the UEFA champions league round of 16 according to the draws that were held on Monday afternoon.

With only three teams left i.e. Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City, hope for the UCL title going to England seems lost as the trio has been potted against much bigger threats.

2018/19 UCL champions and reigning English Premier League champions Liverpool FC will be facing RB Leipzig, a team that is responsible for the eviction of Manchester United from Europe’s biggest tourney.

Leipzig beat Manchester United 3-2 in the final group stages game that saw the red devils descend to Europa league.

Money bags Manchester City face Borrusia Monchegladbach from Germany while Chelsea faces Atletico Madrid.

While all the three EPL teams emerged out of group stages as leaders, the task on the round of 16 level is always a hard one and there is no underdog.

See below how all the teams were drawn.
