Champions League Draw: Barcelona vs. Manchester City Highlights Round Of 16 Pairings

By Goal.com

Manchester City against Barcelona is the pick of the ties to emerge from Monday's Champions League round of 16 draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Spanish champions will face Manuel Pellegrini's free-scoring side after being drawn first out of the pot in the proceedings. Jose Mourinho faces another reunion with former striker Didier Drogba after his Chelsea side was drawn against Galatasaray, which edged out Juventus on match-day six of the group phase.

Arsenal will face Bayern Munich, meanwhile, in a repeat of their encounter from last season, while fellow Bundesliga outfit Schalke faces the daunting task of nine-time champion Real Madrid.

Elsewhere, Manchester United will face Greek champion Olympiakos, while Paris Saint-Germain takes on Bundesliga high-flyer Bayer Leverkusen. AC Milan's reward for edging into the last 16 is Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid. Finally, Borussia Dortmund — the runner-up last season — faces Russian giant Zenit St. Petersburg.

The sides that finished as group runners-up will host the first leg encounters Feb. 18-19 and 25-26, while the second legs take place March 11-12 and 18-19.
