Matchday Live back on air

Our Matchday Live show returns on Tuesday and Wednesday with full commentaries, exclusive interviews and debate. Presenter Rob Daly previews the action.

After more than two months away, UEFA.com's Matchday Live show returns this week for the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

On Tuesday we have full match commentary on Manchester City FC against FC Barcelona. We hear from Yaya Touré – formerly of Barcelona and now at City – ahead of kick-off. The show will also air an interview with Zlatan Ibrahimović before Paris Saint-Germain's trip to Bayer 04 Leverkusen.

Bayern beat Arsenal last season

On Wednesday we turn our attention to north London where FC Bayern München take on Arsenal FC for the second season running. Our reporters also keep us up to date with events at San Siro, where AC Milan's Clarence Seedorf makes his bow as a UEFA Champions League coach. Club Atlético de Madrid are the visitors.

With four more fixtures to come next week, we want to know which last-16 tie you are most looking forward. Didier Drogba called himself "the luckiest player in the UEFA Champions League" after his current employers Galatasaray AŞ were pitted against his old team Chelsea FC. Will the striker return to haunt the club he helped to European glory in 2012?

Perhaps you think Klaas-Jan Huntelaar can cause his old side Real Madrid CF problems too? Or will you be paying extra attention to the fortunes of past champions Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United FC, up against FC Zenit and Olympiacos FC respectively. Let us know your thoughts on Twitter using #matchdaylive.

Additionally, we speak to Vincent Kompany, Diego Costa and Salvatore Sirigu, while European football experts Andy Brassell (Tuesday) and Paul Saffer (Wednesday) will be on hand to offer their insight. Our comprehensive UEFA Champions League coverage begins at 19.30CET via the UEFA.com MatchCentre.
