After Tuesday's glamour ties, Wednesday night in the Champions League will feature some of this year's dark horses for glory.
Manchester City will be seeking to progress to the quarter-finals for the first time in their history, as they travel to Dynamo Kiev, while the 2014 finalists Atletico Madrid will face PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadion in what should be another intriguing affair.
With the two underdogs at home in the first leg, expect Kiev and PSV to play an attacking game, knowing they'll need to take an advantage into the second half of the tie.
Here are the key details on where to catch the action via an online stream, the match odds and a line worth backing in each.
|Champions League Fixtures: Match Odds|
|PSV Eindhoven vs. Atletico Madrid||11-4||12-5||Evs|
|Dynamo Kiev vs. Manchester City||2-1||5-2||5-4|
Atletico Madrid to Win 1-0 (5-1)
The reward for Atletico Madrid topping their Champions League group is a relatively favourable draw against PSV Eindhoven.
It's a competition that seems well set up for the La Liga side. Typically, outfits who can defend, be adaptable in the way they play and grind out results go a long way in this competition. And while the Rojiblancos have struggled a little in front of goal as of late, they're a team who have enough firepower to edge games.
As noted by the Sky Sports La Liga Twitter feed ahead of their 0-0 draw with Villarreal at the weekend, Diego Simeone's side are very difficult opposition to break down:

Atletico Madrid and Villarreal are two of the form La Liga teams. Atletico have only conceded 11 goals all season! https://t.co/0dCAOMrnVz2/21/2016, 7:19:31 PM
PSV are a team who will play into Atletico's hands. They look to keep the ball for long spells, push their full-backs into attacking positions and meticulously probe at opponents.
Expect the visitors to be comfortable coping with pressure, though, and spring through the phases with incisive, direct play.
The key man for Atletico will be Antoine Griezmann, whose scintillating running can push his team up the field. Here are some of the best moments from his fine season to date:
Of all the teams in the competition, Simeone's men are one of the most reliable on the road. While PSV have some exciting young talents, they don't look capable of breaking down this defensive juggernaut.
Expect the visitors to take an advantage back to the Vicente Calderon Stadium after a workmanlike effort in Eindhoven.
Dynamo Kiev vs. Manchester City, Over 3.5 Goals (12-5)
Manchester City's clash in Kiev will kick-start a season-defining stretch, with the League Cup final also looming large for Manuel Pellegrini’s men on Sunday.
Although their Premier League form has been poor, City have been a much more formidable foe in the Champions League. Indeed, even away from home they have won two of their three matches, with impressive performances at Borussia Monchengladbach and Sevilla.
The first XI should be replenished after getting a weekend off in the FA Cup. Bleacher Report's Dean Jones and Marcus Speller discussed whether that was the right call from City with this game in mind:

Ultimately, the only way Pellegrini will receive vindication for that selection is with a strong performance here. And not only will City's top players have to be in place to take a positive result from the first leg, they'll have to perform to their very best up against a capable side too.
The Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex is likely to be at 70,000 capacity for this one, and the raucous supporters will provide a hostile backdrop. In Andriy Yarmolenko, Kiev also have a player capable of doing damage against the elite sides on the continent.
As WhoScored.com noted recently, he's a player who has been in fine form of late:
Andriy Yarmolenko: Has scored 7 goals in his last 7 appearances for club and country after scoring just 2 in his previous 121/28/2016, 2:17:25 PM
So goals are surely a given here. City only know one way to play and that's on the front foot, while Kiev, who are stronger on home soil than on the road, will be well aware of how significant a first-leg advantage will potentially be.
With Sergio Aguero and Yarmolenko in fine form, both defences will struggle to get a grip on the opposition's attack. It makes a bet of more than three goals look like excellent value in this one; for City any kind of score draw or victory would be a massive boost ahead of the second leg.
