It has felt like an age since we were provided with the sweet taste of some top quality European club football, but this feeling will not be around for long as the Champions League resumes on Tuesday.

Relief will be served to us through a mouthwatering tie between Manchester City and Barcelona, while an intriguing clash between Paris Saint Germain and Bayer Leverkusen could go either way.

With so many juicy clashes set to take part in the round of 16, GMS decided to pick out the players we think will be key in deciding which teams grace the quarter-final.

As you would expect at this stage of European club football's premier competition, there are plenty of top-quality players set to appear and choosing only a handful is extremely difficult.

However, we have taken to the task with great relish and think we have picked out the seven men that will play the most prominent roles if their respective clubs are to turn out in April.
