City, Porto and Liverpool are through

The list of teams now into the round of 16 is at eight, meaning half of the knockout stage is set. Entering the day, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Sevilla had all clinched spots, and on Tuesday they were joined by Liverpool, Manchester City and Porto.  

Atletico Madrid and Borussia Monchengladbach both blew chances to clinch a spot in the next round with victories and now face stiff tests on Matchday 6 with everything on the line. From a win seeing them advance to losing next week and likely being eliminated. Gladbach could still advance with a loss if Shakhtar and Inter draw.

Inter deliver... and the controversy isn't warranted

What a performance from Inter Milan and especially Romelu Lukaku. The team looked like well below average during the group stage before the day began, scoring a measly four goals in four games. With Lukaku -- who netted a brace on Tuesday -- and Lautaro Martinez commanding the front line, they finally put together a convincing performance while also getting a crucial call to go their way. 

Inter took a 3-1 lead in the 73rd minute just before Alassane Plea got his second to make it 3-2. The French attacker then put the ball in the net again for what appeared to be the equalizer, but it was called back due to Breel Embolo being in an offside position in which he blocked the line of sight of Inter keeper Samir Handanovic. It was the right call, despite Gladbach going nuts after the match and letting the ref have it. But he thoroughly reviewed it, and Embolo's position clearly impacted Handanovic's reaction.

Marsch and Salzburg have life on near-perfect day

Jesse Marsch believes in his team no matter who they play, and they enter next week with a chance and full belief that they'll beat Atletico Madrid. That confidence just comes natural to him. Last season, he told me his goal was to win the competition with RB Salzburg. Now, obviously that seemed unlikely as can be, but that's just the level of confidence he has.

Tuesday was near perfect for the Austrian side, earning a convincing 3-1 win at Lokomotiv Moscow and seeing Atletico fail to beat Bayern. That means next Wednesday for 90 minutes at home, RB Salzburg are playing for a spot in the round of 16, needing a victory to do it.
