NYON, Switzerland (AP) – Barcelona were drawn today to face Manchester City and their strong contingent of Spanish internationals, and Chelsea were given a reunion with former striker Didier Drogba in the Champions League.
Defending champion Bayern Munich were paired with Arsenal in the last 16 for the second straight year.
Both Man City and Arsenal ended up second in their Champions League groups, leading to the tough draws. Chelsea won their group and will face Galatasaray and Drogba, whose last kick as a Chelsea player was the penalty shootout winner in the 2012 final against Bayern Munich.
Also, nine-time winner Real Madrid will face Schalke; Manchester United got a favourable draw against Olympiakos; Borussia Dortmund will face Zenit St Petersburg; C Milan will play Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain will meet Bayer Leverkusen.
The first legs will be played February 18 and 19 and 25 and 26, with the return matches set for March 11 and 12 and 18 and 19.
