The draw for the last 16 of this season’s Champions League has been decided as Premier League clubs Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City learned their opposition for the next round after making it through the group stages.
Chelsea and Manchester City were handed tough draws against Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, respectively, the same teams they faced in the competition last season.
Arsenal, however, avoided a clash against giants such as Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, and were drawn against Arsene Wenger’s old side AS Monaco in one of the more favourable-looking ties on paper.
The draw in full:
Paris Saint-Germain v Chelsea
Manchester City v FC Barcelona
Bayer Leverkusen v Atletico Madrid
Juventus v Borussia Dortmund
FC Schalke 04 v Real Madrid CF
Shakhtar Donetsk v Bayern Munich
Arsenal v AS Monaco
FC Basel v FC Porto
