Chelsea book Barcelona, PSG face Real Madrid — UEFA Champions League

Juventus vs Tottenham or Chelsea vs Barcelona? The 4 best fixtures in the Champions League Round of 16

Europa League champions Manchester United take on Sevilla, Liverpool will meet Porto and AS Roma's reward for winning their group ahead of Chelsea is a tricky tie against Ukraine's Shakhtar Donetsk.

That is undeniably true.

Chelsea have had the better of 12 previous meetings with Barcelona, with four wins to the Liga side's three.

Given the quality left in the Champions League, they will certainly need every ounce of belief they can muster.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes admitted: "I didn't see that second half coming and it wasn't acceptable from our point of view".

Eurosport will also have live coverage of the draw.

The opening ties are scheduled for the 13th and 14th, with the return legs to be played a week later.

As a defiant Thomas Muller declared afterwards, "We are still FC Bayern". Each took a turn to advance at the other team's stadium and go on to win the title. There are some not so good moments in every team.

However Jose Mourinho will surely already be planning on how he can exploit the Spanish side's soft defence.

Spurs, as a group winner, will play their second leg at home, at Wembley. Who has done the best in terms of their last 16 opponents?

Last season they failed to progress beyond the last 16 stage, losing a thrilling two-legged tie against Barcelona 6-5 on aggregate, while Real enjoyed one of their most successful seasons, becoming the first team in 27 years to retain the Champions League trophy. And if that weren't enough, Gigi Buffon guards the goal for them. Since the current format was adopted, group winners have advanced to the quarterfinals 72.3% of the time.

As a result, in spite of Eden Hazard's wizardry and N'Golo Kante's omnipresence, Chelsea still look short on cover in key areas. This was the first of many times the club legend haunted Barcelona.

The games will take place in February. Ronaldo has scored 60 goals in the group stages so far in his career, joint top with Lionel Messi. And lots of them. Bernard's opener was a beauty, but it was a mistake by City goalkeeper Ederson that allowed Ismaily to make it 2-0.
