Arsenal have been drawn against Arsene Wenger's former club Monaco in the draw for the Round of 16 draw in Nyon today. In a strange twist, Arsenal have been spared a tough draw for the first time in a few years after drawing Bayern Munich for the last two years. It was the ideal draw for the North Londonders.

Meanwhile, Man City weren't as lucky, and will face the might of Lionel Messi and Barcelona in what is the pick of the round. It's a replay of the same fixture at the same stage last year, and City will be hoping for revenge after losing out 4-1 on aggregate.


Chelsea will play the nouveau riche Parisian of PSG in a replay of last year's quarter final that Chelsea won on away goals. £50 million man David Luiz will return to his former club in what is sure to be an intriguing clash.

Elsewhere, the pick of the ties is the titanic clash between Italian champions Juventus and Borussia Dortmund while champions Real Madrid will face Schalke.

First legs are due to be played on the 17/18th and 24/25th of February, with the return legs to be played on the 10/11th and 17/18th of March.
