Top games to watch in the UEFA Europa League round of 16 2nd leg

Galatasaray vs Barcelona: This is a must-win game for the Blaugrana. Despite boasting the home advantage and all the possession in the first leg, Barcelona were unable to capitalize, instead drawing 0-0 with the Turkish giants. As a result, with the away goal rule being scrapped, only a victory would see the Spanish giants progress to the quarterfinals. Fortunately, Xavi's men have been playing extremely well as of late, as the visitors boast a 10-game unbeaten run, winning seven and drawing three. 

As for the hosts, they enter this tie on the back of a much-needed 2-1 victory over bitter rivals Besiktas. However, the Turkish giants still remain in the bottom half of the Super Lig table, currently occupying the 11th spot. Galatasaray would need to be perfect in order to knock out Ferran Torres and Co.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Atalanta: When these two teams faced off in the first leg, they played out a five-goal thriller, with the Italian giants just about edging the win courtesy of a 3-2 score line. Malinovsky cancelled out Aranguiz's 11th-minute opening goal before Muriel bagged a brilliant brace to put Atalanta in the driving seat. In fact, Gian Piero Gasperini's men were in danger of running away with the tie but Diaby pulled one back for Leverkusen, meaning the game is not yet over. Unfortunately, the German giants will be without influential attacker Florian Wirtz after suffering a horrible ACL tear which has now put his World Cup hopes in doubt. Can Die Werkself pull off a win and secure their spot in the quarterfinals in the absence of their star player? Tune in to find out the answer.

West Ham vs Sevilla: Two credible title challengers go head-to-head in this tie, with either West Ham or Sevilla set to bow out of the competition. The Spanish heavyweights boast the advantage heading into the second leg, but it's a slim one, having beaten the Premier League outfit 1-0 in the first encounter. It's not hard to see why Lopetegui's men achieved that lovely result as they are second in La Liga, boasting the best defensive record in the Spanish top-flight. However, this game will take place in the Hammers' home soil and David Moyes' men have shown this season that they are a side to be feared. They enter this tie on the back of an impressive 2-1 win over Aston Villa and will now be out for revenge over Kounde and Co.
