SEATTLE - After a months-long hiatus, the UEFA Champions League is back this week with the first Round of 16 matchups. Reigning champions Manchester City travel to Denmark to face FC Copenhagen, who defeated Manchester United twice during the group stages to secure a place in the last 16. Spanish giants Real Madrid start their journey towards a 15th title in the competition with a trip to Germany, facing RB Leipzig.

Elsewhere, the first round of the revamped CONCACAF Champions Cup comes to an end with a couple of Liga MX teams in trouble as they seek to advance to the next round. Club América will need to overcome a 2-1 deficit against Real Estelí while Tigres tied the first leg against MLS team Vancouver Whitecaps.

These are the most exciting soccer matches that will take place this week.
