UEFA Champions League Round Of 16 Draws; Chelsea Face Barcelona
The UEFA Champions League round of 16 Draws have been made and familiar foes will be doing battle.
Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea all qualified from their respective groups, making England the first country to have five teams in the competition’s last 16.
Chelsea face a daunting tie, with Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Besiktas their only possible opponents when the draw is made at Uefa’s headquarters at 11am GMT.
The Blues finished second behind Roma in their group and along with the Serie A side, they are also ineligible to face their Premier League rivals. The two Manchester clubs, Liverpool and Tottenham all finished top of their groups, meaning Chelsea can only be paired with either the French or Turkish champions, or the current La Liga leaders.
For the four remaining English clubs, five-time champions Bayern Munich and last year’s runners-up Juventus are stand-out dangers, while reigning champions Real Madrid are potential foes for United, City and Liverpool.
