All eight UEFA Champions League round of 16 ties have a leader – including two with four-goal cushions – following the first legs, with a record-equalling 34 goals scored across the openers.

Bayern and Paris are the best-placed teams of all, given a four-goal deficit has never been overturned in a UEFA Champions League knockout tie.

Only Sevilla and Benfica have one-goal advantages to protect,leaving Leicester and Dortmund respectively with most hope of a second-leg comeback in three weeks' time.

The first legs produced a record 34 goals, smashing the previous best of 26 (set in 2013/14) for eight round of 16 openers. This tally is also the joint-highest for a single UEFA Champions League knockout instalment, matching the total from the 2011/12 round of 16 second legs.

Here we re-live the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg fixtures in pictures.
