There are only two matches to worry about today, but they're two big ones, with Manchester City taking on Barcelona and Bayer Leverkusen hosting Paris Saint-Germain.

It's the return of the Champions League today as the Round of 16 kicks off with two of the most intriguing pairings of the entire tournament so far. The day's headliner is unquestionably Manchester City hosting Barcelona in a match that wouldn't have looked out of place were it the final, but Bayer Leverkusen taking on PSG is also worthy of attention as Sami Hyypia's side take on the French big-spenders. Both matches kick off at 7:45PM GMT/2:45PM EST.

Come and join us in keeping an eye on the day's going ons while we daydream about Liverpool making it back into Europe's premier club competition next season. As always, LiveSoccerTV has listings of live television offerings around the globe, and SBNation has put together a big, shiny preview for the Round of 16 that's worth your time.
