Busy schedules for English clubs?
Manchester City - Make no mistake, this is a difficult run of fixtures for Pep Guardiola's side. They face Leicester at the King Power the weekend before a Wednesday trip to the Bernabeu, before hosting Arsenal the weekend after, unless they're competing in the Carabao Cup final on March 1. The Manchester derby comes the weekend after that at Old Trafford, followed by a clash with Burnley on March 14 at the Etihad, while the second leg against Real at home will come before a weekend trip to Chelsea.
Liverpool - After going to Atletico on February 18, Liverpool host West Ham on February 22, before going to Watford the following weekend, unless they compete in the Carabao Cup final on March 1. The second leg comes sandwiched in-between a Premier League clash with Bournemouth at Anfield and a Merseyside derby at Everton.
Chelsea - The Blues' first leg at home against Bayern on February 15 comes after a home clash with Tottenham, and before a trip to Bournemouth in the Premier League. The second leg on March 18 comes after a trip to Aston Villa, and a huge clash with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Tottenham - Spurs' home first leg with RB Leipzig on February 19 comes just before a trip to Chelsea in the Premier League, while the March 10 second leg is sandwiched in-between a trip to Burnley and a clash with Manchester United at home, while there is possible FA Cup fifth round participation on March 4.

Analysis: Tough tests await for English clubs
Sky Sports' Peter Smith...
English clubs will have to pass some fierce examinations if they are to continue the Premier League's recent rise to the top of European football.
Defending Premier League champions Manchester City have been fortunate with cup draws in recent years but drew arguably the toughest opponent they could face in Real Madrid.
It's a familiar foe for Pep Guardiola but with Champions League specialist Zinedine Zidane back at the helm, Real remain a frightening force in this competition and City will have to produce two complete performances to progress.
Meanwhile, Chelsea, who were always heading for a tough draw after finishing second in their group, face a Bayern Munich side struggling for consistency but with the firepower to cause serious damage - just ask Tottenham.
Frank Lampard's return to the Allianz Arena - the scene of his and Chelsea's Champions League triumph in 2012 - adds intrigue to a tough tie for his developing side.
Chelsea's London rivals Tottenham will be pleased to have swerved PSG, Juventus and Barcelona but RB Leipzig are top of the Bundesliga and not to be underestimated. Timo Werner - with 16 goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances this season - will be a major threat.
Finally, title-holders Liverpool can look forward to a return to the scene of this year's Champions League triumph at Atletico Madrid - and will go into their tie favourites to see off Diego Simeone's underperforming team. But the Champions League knockouts are rarely that straightforward.
Analysis: 'Not a bad time to play Real'
Speaking on Sky Sports News, former Liverpool defender Stephen Warnock says Manchester City should not fear this Real Madrid side.
"I don't think it's the same Real team that beat Liverpool in 2018, especially without Cristiano Ronaldo," he said.
"I think this is a good time to play them, and they may have Aymeric Laporte back."
Real Madrid vs Man City - second in La Liga behind Barcelona on goal difference after 16 games. Came second in Group A behind PSG, picking up 11 points from six games.
Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool - fifth in La Liga, six points off top spot. Came runner-up in Group D behind Juventus, picking up 10 points from six games.
Tottenham vs RB Leipzig - top of Bundesliga by two points, and six points ahead of fifth-place champions Bayern Munich. Topped Group G with 11 points from six games, ahead of Lyon, Benfica and Zenit.
Chelsea vs Bayern Munich - fifth in the Bundesliga, six points off top spot, but topped Group B with a 100 per cent record ahead of Spurs, Olympiacos and Red Star Belgarde, scoring 24 goals in just six games, and conceding five.
