Uefa Champions League Draw Today at 12pm by jamalnation(m): 8:56am On Dec 12, 2016
[b]The draw for the last-16 of Europe's
premier competition takes place in Nyon
on Monday at 12.00CET and there's
potential for some truly mouth-watering

Arsenal’s reward for topping their
Champions League group for the first
time in five seasons could be a last-16 tie
against holders Real Madrid when the
draw is made on Monday.
The Gunners finished ahead of Paris
Saint-Germain in Group A and could now
face a nightmare match-up against either
the 11-time European champions, who
finished runners up behind Borussia
Dortmund in Group F, or Bayern Munich,
whom they’ve faced six times in the
Champions League since 2014 and
beaten only twice.

Who do Madrid fans want to avoid?
Arsenal have been knocked out of the
tournament at the last-16 stage in each
of the past six seasons and manager
Arsene Wenger will be hoping for a
slightly easier passage to the quarter-
final this time by being drawn against
either Bayer Leverkusen, Benfica, Porto
or Sevilla.

Traditionally, topping your group means
you’re theoretically likely to be presented
with a more comfortable challenge in the
last-16 but Champions League
newcomers Leicester City could also be in
for a shock when the balls come out of
the bag in Switzerland. After winning
Group G, the Foxes will now face either
Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich,
Benfica, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid
or Sevilla. Glamour ties galore!

Last season’s semi-finalists Manchester
City may find that finishing runners up in
Group C actually works to their
advantage this year if they find
themselves paired against Monaco or
Napoli in the next round. However, Pep
Guardiola’s side could also draw Borussia
Dortmund, Juventus or last season’s
finalists Atletico Madrid.

UCL: What do changes mean for fans?
Barcelona v Bayern Munich is arguably
the last-16’s most enticing potential tie
but Real Madrid v Juventus and Paris
Saint-Germain v Borussia Dortmund are
two other mouth-watering prospects.

Bookmakers have installed Luis Enrique’s
Barcelona as 3-1 favourites to lift their
sixth Champions League crown this
season but an unkind last-16 draw could
make things very difficult for them
indeed. Seeded group winners will be
away in the last-16 first legs on
14th/15th and 21st/22nd February and
at home in the return matches on
7th/8th and 14th/15th March. [/b]
