The first two matches of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 kick off in Scotland and Spain, where first-leg action features Juventus traveling to Glasgow Celtic (2:45pm, Fox Soccer Channel), and Paris St. Germain visiting Valencia (2:45pm, MSG+, Fox Soccer Plus).
Both Celtic and Valencia are the underdogs in their pre-quarterfinal series, but both come in confident. Celtic hasn’t lost to an Italian team in eight matches, a span that goes back more than two decades. Valencia boasts a similar streak against French clubs, having gone unbeaten in 17 matches against French teams, a run that goes back more than 30 years.
History won’t matter much on this day, with Juventus and PSG boasting very strong teams. Paris St. Germain is unbeaten in 12 in all competitions while Juventus has just one loss in their past nine in all competitions. Juve will look to become the first visiting team other than Barcelona to win a European Cup match at Celtic Park in 23 matches.
