Bayern and Paris are the best-placed teams of all, given a four-goal deficit has never been overturned in a UEFA Champions League knockout tie. Only Sevilla and Benfica have one-goal advantages to protect, meanwhile, leaving Leicester and Dortmund respectively with most hope of a second-leg comeback in three weeks’ time.
The first legs produced a record 34 goals, smashing the previous best of 26 (set in 2013/14) for eight round of 16 openers. This tally is also the joint-highest for a single UEFA Champions League knockout instalment, matching the total from the 2011/12 round of 16 second legs.
