Comments()
In this series, we take a look at the highlights of the remaining 16 teams in the Champions League....

Atletico Madrid are certainly a force to be reckoned with in Europe, with some consistent displays over the past decade in the continental competitions. They have once again impressed in the UEFA Champions League and have reached the Round of 16 this time around.

The Spanish outfit came through a group containing the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge and AS Monaco to set up a tasty Round of 16 fixture against Juventus.

Diego Simeone's men started with a 2-1 away win over AS Monaco before beating Club Brugge 3-1 at home. Though Dortmund shocked them 4-0 away from home, Atletico gained a measure of revenge by beating them 2-0 in the reverse fixture.

Another 2-0 win over Monaco and a goalless draw against Brugge meant they went through to the Round of 16 as the second-placed team in the group.

The likes of Antoine Griezmann and Koke have all been impressive for the team in their march to the Round of 16.
