Vital View - Champions League, 14th-15th Feb 2017

The Champions League season continued with the latest round of games played in midweek.

Here's a round up of the Champions League action from the other games.

Results

Tuesday 14th February 2017 - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - ROUND OF 16
Benfica 1-0 Borussia Dortmund 19:45
Paris Saint Germain 4-0 Barcelona 19:45

Wednesday 15th February 2017 - CHAMPIONS LEAGUE - ROUND OF 16
Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal 19:45
Real Madrid 3-1 Napoli 19:45

A narrow advantage was taken into the second leg of Benfica's tie with Borussia Dortmund in Germany in a few weeks time when the Portuguese side recorded a 1-0 victory on Tuesday. This win - and a cleansheet to boot - means Dortmund have little room for error if they want to make the last eight.

Paris Saint Germain's incredible 4-0 win over multi time European champions Barcelona at the Parc des Princes means the French side are all but assured of a quarter-final place. This stunning victory for PSG means Barca - who will still be in shock - require a minor miracle at the Nou Camp to prevent Uni Emery's side from advancing.

Wednesday saw Bayern Munich close in on a place in the quarter-finals as Bayern saw the PSG win over Barcelona - 4-0 at the Parc des Princes - and raised it with a 5-1 win over Arsenal. The Gunners' Champions League bid has ended in the last 16 so many times over the years with the Premier League side needing a minor miracle at the Emirates Stadium to avoid this again.

Holders Real Madrid have a strong grip on their tie with Napoli too with a place in the last eight looking good. Recovering from slipping behind to an early goal Zinedine Zidane's side recovered to win 3-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, that away goal could prove crucial to the Italian side in the Naples return.

Who was the MotM? That's what the latest poll is asking so do cast a vote.

Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
