Power Ranking the Midfields of the Champions League Last 16

With the UEFA Champions League round of 16 edging closer, B/R continues its previews by checking in on the strength of each and every remaining team's respective midfield.

In selecting the midfields to judge, we only took into account players available to play in the round of 16 ties. Therefore, Ilkay Gundogan does not count toward Borussia Dortmund's strength and Juan Mata doesn't count toward Manchester United's.

For teams playing in a 4-2-3-1 or 3-5-2 formation, the midfield five are judged; for 4-2-2, the four; for 4-3-3, the three.

B/R's Chris Atkins ranked the forward lines last week; now, we move on to the midfields.
