    Right, I'm about finished here for today.

    Here's a reminder of the main stories to reach us this morning with links to where you can find out more.

  2. 'Leipzig favourites against Spurs'

    Tottenham v RB Leipzig (Wednesday, 20:00 GMT)

    Tottenham recovered from a 7-2 home thrashing by Bayern Munich to finish second in Group B behind the Bundesliga champions, while their upcoming German opponents RB Leipzig topped Group G ahead of Lyon.

    On Spurs' chances, German journalist Raphael Honigstein told the Euro Leagues podcast: "Most people would have Leipzig as favourites. Two words explain that: Harry Kane [who is injured].

    "[Leipzig] have depth and we now find out how good they are internationally. They are still a bit immature and not a side that can go into games knowing they will dominate, all the signs of a team that is growing."

  3. 'Atletico are not the team they were'

    Atletico Madrid v Liverpool (Tuesday, 20:00 GMT)

    Liverpool will look to continue their push for a third consecutive Champions League final as they travel to the stadium where they lifted the trophy for the sixth time last year.

    While Jurgen Klopp's side are running away with the Premier League title, Atletico Madrid are fourth in La Liga and 13 points behind leaders Real Madrid.

    "Atletico are not the Atletico team they were before when they had that team of warriors, all fighters who were typical Diego Simeone players. They had a nasty side to it," says European football expert Kristof Terreur.

    And Julien Laurens added: "It was always going to take time for Simeone to make what he had last time with these players. Maybe he is finished and maybe too old school to succeed now.

    "I would love to have seen this game three years ago. No way this Atletico side can trouble Liverpool."

  4. The tie of the round?

    Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Euro Leagues podcast, European football expert Julien Laurens believes PSG's meeting with Borussia Dortmund is the standout Champions League tie.

    "I think this is the tie of the last 16," says Laurens.

    "I can easily see a 4-3 Dortmund in first leg and 5-3 PSG in the second leg.

    "They are probably the best two attacking teams in Europe right now. But they are also not the best at defending."

    Which tie are you most looking forward to watching and why?

    SMS Message: Don't think it is just the Prem that has seen quality drop. It's the same across Europe. Players wages are so inflated now it's hard for clubs to move unwanted players out the door. As a result there's a lot of unbalanced squads around at the moment. from Rob, Sussex

    SMS Message: Oliver from London - how wrong you are! Norwich May have done ok on Saturday but the fact they are only on 18 pts with 12 games remaining shows how low the quality is. from James

    Tomorrow, holders Liverpool will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano to face an Atletico Madrid side struggling to keep pace in La Liga, as Borussia Dortmund host French champions Paris St-Germain.

    Then, on Wednesday, Tottenham host Bundesliga title hopefuls RB Leipzig, as Atalanta and Valencia also go head-to-head.

    Chelsea and Manchester City must wait until next week for the first leg of their ties against Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

  7. Post update

    Now, to the Champions League, where the knockout stages are almost upon us and some rather intriguing match-ups await.

  8. 'A true legend' - Sir Alex Ferguson

    Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson added: “I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Harry Gregg.

    “Harry was a man of great character and a true legend at our club.I remember that he was always very excited and proud to host our youth team at his boarding house for the Milk Cup every Summer so he could recount the tales of his playing days.I loved his company and the many pieces of advice he gave me.

    “My thoughts and prayers and with Carolyn and his family at this very sad time. God Bless Harry”

  9. Sir Bobby Charlton pays tribute to Harry Gregg

    Sir Bobby Charlton has reacted to the news this morning that former Manchester United goalkeeper and Munich air disaster hero Harry Gregg has died aged 87:

    “Harry was a fantastic goalkeeper, but more importantly he was an incredible human being.

    “I was proud to call him a team-mate. For all the matter of fact things Harry said about that night in Munich for me he will always be remembered as a heroic figure.It’s incredible to think that he went on to play in a match against Sheffield Wednesday just 13 days after that tragic night. A shining light both on and off the pitch. For so many reasons, he deserves to be remembered as one of the greatest names in Manchester United’s history.

    “Harry will be deeply missed and our thoughts are with Carolyn and his family at this very sad time.”

  11. Guardiola to stay at City

    BBC Sport

    More on that breaking news that Pep Guardiola intends to remain at Manchester City, which comes after the club received a two-year ban from competing in European football on Friday:

    Guardiola's contract had been due to expire in 2021.

    The deal does have a break clause at the end of this season and it was anticipated he would activate it should City fail to win their appeal, which they will be submitting to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in the next few days.

    However, it is understood Guardiola has said he will not be doing that and remains committed to the club.

    Guardiola is expected to speak about the subject for the first time after Wednesday's re-arranged Premier League game against West Ham.

    As both clubs held pre-match press conferences two days before the game was supposed to be played, they have been told by the Premier League there is no contractual requirement to hold another and it is understood neither side will be.

    SMS Message: The idea that the quality of the Premier League is lower this year is nonsense. The overall quality is high but some notable big clubs are relatively weak for their standards - Arsenal, Spurs, my Man Utd. But Norwich are the best bottom team in years and years. from Oliver, London.

    SMS Message: So Liverpool are running away with the title, looking like winning the first one in 30 years, yet all I hear is the " quality is down", " Liverpool have been lucky due to VAR", " Liverpool aren't as good as city" blah blah blah! To win 25 out of 26 games is simply astonishing, so let's give this side more credit. from Paul, Luton
    Paul, Luton
    SMS Message: Re Francesca at 9:00 - yes Liverpool have been outstanding this season but they were last year as well. It was only an astonishing run of results that earned City the title. The reality is that no other team (City included) has performed at the same level as Liverpool and so, in many ways, it all looks a bit too easy. The worry is that, with City facing European exile (and the inevitable fallout from that) and most of the other "big" clubs in transition, Liverpool could dominate the PL for several years to come. And yes I am a City fan. from Richard

    Joe Wedgwood: Gus Poyet has hit nail on the head there. Yes, Prem is more competitive as ever but quality has dropped massively. For quality, technique and dynamism, see Bundesliga!

    Robbo Sprint: I really hope Wolves and Sheffield qualify for Champion league places.
