Matchups for the UEFA Champions League’s Round of 16 were determined on Monday, and if there was any luck to be had in the selection held in Nyon, Switzerland, Chelsea and Arsenal certainly weren’t honored with it.
Chelsea will again face Paris Saint-Germain, the group that knocked out the Blues out of the Champions League last 16 last season, while Arsenal, which conquered an awful start to the group stage in order to advance to the last 16, will face significantly more problems when it clashes with defending champion Barcelona.
Manchester City, which has had its own “bad luck” with Champions League group stage draws, found a break in drawing Dynamo Kiev, the runner-up to Chelsea in Group G.
Juventus, which lost to Barcelona in the Champions last June, was apparently the group runner-up to keep away from. The two-time European champion will tackle Bayern Munich, a winner of Europe five times.
Below are the eight Round of 16 match-ups, which will start with first legs on February 16-17 and February 23-24 and close with the returning legs on March 8-9 and March 15-16.
