Why you should back Borussia Dortmund 

Der BVB will be looking for their top goal producers in the Bundesliga to generate some necessary offense on Tuesday. Forwards Niclas Fullkrug and Donyell Malen are among five players tied for seventh in Germany's top league this season with 11 goals apiece, but they both have converted just once during Champions League play. Fullkrug tallied in the group stage against Newcastle United, while Malen scored in Dortmund's 1-1 draw with PSV Eindhoven in the first leg of their Round of 16 matchup.

The 31-year-old Fullkrug also has notched a pair of assists, putting him one behind Marcel Sabitzer for the team lead. Sabitzer has yet to convert in the UCL, but the Austrian midfielder netted both goals in Dortmund's 2-1 triumph over Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday in Bundesliga action. Midfielder Marco Reus and winger Karim Adeyemi have scored two goals apiece to lead Dortmund in this competition, with the former converting in the club's 2-0 second-leg victory against Eindhoven. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Atletico Madrid

Los Colchoneros were one of the top offensive teams during the group stage of the competitio, as they recorded 17 goals - one fewer than Manchester City. Atletico have netted at least two goals in seven of their last eight Champions League matches and given up fewer than two goals in six straight contests. French forward Antoine Griezmann is tied for second in the UCL with six goals, converting in five of his nine outings, and notched his first assist in the team's victory against Dortmund.

The 33-year-old Griezmann is among the top goal-scorers in La Liga this season, as he is tied for seventh with 13 goals. He is one behind Alvaro Morata, who leads Los Colchoneros and shares fifth place in league play with 14 goals. The 31-year-old striker is one away from matching the career high he set in 2016-17 while with Real Madrid. See which team to pick here.
