Three spots in the Round of 16 are up for grabs in Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League action, and several sides are well on their way to locking the positions up.

Although Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are already ensured of places in the next round, the two Group B giants have played an exciting match thus far, with the latter ahead by a 2-0 scoreline. Goals from Robert Lewandowski and Corentin Tolisso are the difference for the German side.

CSKA Moscow has stunned Manchester United on the brink of halftime after Alan Dzagoev controversially put the Russians ahead at Old Trafford, 1-0.

Also in Group A, FC Basel leads at the Estadio da Luz against Benfica, which would see the Swiss side through to the last 16 if they see their victory out. Man United, CSKA and Basel are all currently level on 12 points, which would bring tiebreakers into effect if the matches finish with the same score lines.

Meanwhile, Juan Cuadrado has Juventus ahead on the road against Olympiacos as the Italian side looks to reach the Round of 16 out of Group D.

Easy as you’d like with that finish, right, Juan?

Juve is currently level on points (11) with group leaders Barcelona, however, Barca would top the group — if results stand — based on its superior goal differential.

Manchester United 0-0 CSKA Moscow
