Arsenal to face Barcelona


Arsenal have been drawn against Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The Gunners looked to be heading for an early exit from the competition but rallied in their final group matches to finish second and they now face a tough second round tie against the reigning champions.

As a group runner-up, Arsenal will play at home for the first leg before travelling to the Nou Camp.

Chelsea will face Paris Saint-Germain with the Blues home for the second leg, while Manchester City will play Dynamo Kiev over the two legs as they bid to reach the quarter-finals.

It was PSG who knocked out Chelsea with the French side prevailing after extra time.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid will take on AS Roma over two legs with Bayern Munich drawn against last year's beaten finalists Juventus.

PSV Eindhoven will play Atletico Madrid, while Wolfsburg will face Gent. The final pairing sees Benfica take on Zenit.
