Pitchside Europe

Tuesday’s matchday six games in pictures

IT'S SNOW USE - Despite the effort of staff, Galatasaray v Juventus was called off due to the snow. NFL fans in Philadelphia would laugh at this, of course...

NOT IMPRESSED: Didier Drogba and co wanted to get on with it, though - and with the winners joining Real Madrid in the last-16, it was pretty much the biggest game of the evening.

CONTINENTAL TRIBUTE: This banner, as modelled by Real Sociedad and Bayer Leverkusen, was at every Champions League game in memory of Nelson Mandela.

FEELING BETTER, SHINJI? Mr. Kagawa watched his calories before Man United's game with Shakhtar Donetsk.

ALL EYES ON YOU, DAVID: Is that a nervous smile on the United boss's face?

SAVIOLA THE SAVIOUR: Despite missing one from the penalty spot, Javier Saviola's two goals defeated hapless Anderlecht and sent Olympiacos through to the last-16.

CHILLAX LADS, THIS ONE'S WRAPPED UP: Pep Guardiola would regret being so casual at Bayern Munich 2-0 Manchester City (Ed: He wasn't really gesturing that to his players...)

VIKTORIOUS: Viktoria Plzen snatch a win - and the Europa League spot - from CSKA Moscow in stoppage time.
