The UEFA Champions League round of 16 first legs produced some stunning results, memorable goals and unlikely stars. UEFA.com picks the best of the action with commentary highlights from our radio show Matchday Live.

Fabinho's Monaco delight

Team: AS Monaco FC
Monaco, ending a near decade-long competition absence, managed only one away goal in topping Group C but trebled that total on Wednesday in winning 3-1 at Arsenal FC. Geoffrey Kondogbia and Dimitar Berbatov made it 2-0 and after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain pulled one back late on, Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco restored Monaco's two-goal advantage.

"Football is an art," declared Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim, but it is mathematical science that may concern Arsenal. No team have overturned more than a one-goal first-leg deficit away from home in the UEFA Champions League, and the Gunners need to score three times on 17 March against a side who have conceded just twice in the tournament this season.

Player: Luis Suárez (FC Barcelona)
Suárez never found the net away to Manchester City FC during his time at Liverpool FC, but he put that right on Tuesday, striking twice in the first half-hour to set up a 2-1 away success for Barcelona.
