Holders Barcelona, along with Manchester City, Wolfsburg, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, all appear set to reach the quarter-finals of this season's UEFA Champions League.

The quintet hold solid leads headed into the second legs of their round-of-16 matches. But it's Barca who are in the strongest position, having snatched a pair of away goals at the Emirates Stadium.

Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid should also be expected to negotiate tightly poised ties. But things are tougher to predict between Zenit St. Petersburg and Benfica.

Here are the final fixtures for the last-16 stage, along with streaming details and viewing information:

Chelsea vs. Paris Saint-Germain

PSG already hold a 2-1 lead after the first leg, and the French club are a good bet to repeat the trick at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have been in excellent form since manager Guus Hiddink took over from Jose Mourinho, but the west London club still has some drab results in them. A recent 1-1 draw at home to Stoke City in the Premier League is a prime example.

Chelsea can't afford to be so generous against a PSG squad loaded with quality, especially in midfield and forward areas. But there are doubts about that strength in the middle, with both Marco Verratti and Blaise Matuidi questionable for the game, according to ESPN FC's Jonathan Johnson.

Key midfield man Matuidi is a doubt for PSG.

But the club from the French capital can still rely on talisman striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Matt Spiro recently praised the big Swede's hidden qualities in an article for the Ligue 1 official site:

Don't forget, the striker's influence is not restricted merely to his goals and assists. His personality and notoriety have contributed hugely to PSG becoming a big club, or dare I say it 'brand', around the world. Yet something that is often overlooked is his faultless professionalism and his fiercely competitive, winning mentality.

Ibrahimovic doesn't always relish the big occasions. But at 34, time is running out for him to win Europe's premier club competition. There's all the motivation he needs to strike at the Bridge.

 

Bayern Munich vs. Juventus

No team in the tournament passes the ball better than the men from Munich. Their stylish possession built a two-goal lead in the first leg in Turin.

But now Bayern need to recover from a late collapse that let Juve even the score. An ex-Juventus player could undo his old club in the second leg.

Midfield runner Arturo Vidal has already become an essential figure during his first season in Munich. Mark Lovell of ESPN FC has described how the "Chilean looks reinvigorated after the winter break."

Vidal will be Bayern's main influence.

Vidal's energy and tenacity are vital qualities in the middle and a crucial counterpoint to the technical and creative excellence of Thiago Alcantara. This combination will help Bayern seize control and wear down Juve.

Will Barcelona retain the Champions League?

Elsewhere, Arsenal could be in for a torrid time at the Camp Nou. Already two down, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger may rest key players while his side clings on in the Premier League title race and still has the chance to defend the FA Cup.

Barca's La Liga title rivals Atletico Madrid couldn't find the net in their first leg against PSV Eindhoven. But with the dangerous Antoine Griezmann a roving menace in front of a cagey and industrious midfield headed by Gabi, Atleti will find things easier on home soil.
