Barcelona and Lyon are in the driving seat after the first leg of their last-16 ties!

BAYER LEVERKUSEN 1-3 BARCELONA

Champions League holders Barca are all but through to the quarters as Alexis Sanchez's double helped them to a well-derserved win in Leverkusen!

Sanchez slipped Barca ahead just before the break, but Michal Kadlec hit a shock equaliser, heading in Vedran Corluka's 51st-minute cross. They were only level for three minutes, though - Sanchez rounded the keeper for his second, before Lionel Messi hit the third right at the end!

MAN OF THE MATCH: Alexis Sanchez (Barcelona)

LYON 1-0 APOEL

Lyon will take a one-goal lead to Cyprus for the second leg in three weeks' time, thanks to Alexandre Lacazette's second-half winner against Apoel!

The French side dominated the game and allowed Apoel only one shot on target all game. Lyon midfielder Ederson saw his shot cleared off the line, before young striker Lacazette worked some space in the box on 58 minutes and fired a deflected shot past goalkeeper Dionisios Chiotis!

MAN OF THE MATCH: Michel Baston (Lyon)

VAN PERSIE! Back in the goals as Man. United climb back into the top four!

MIGNOLET! Can't catch a cold this winter!
