Arsenal, Leicester And Man City Discover Their Champions League Last 16 Opponents

Arsenal, Leicester City and Manchester City, the three remaining Premier League sides, discovered their fate at the Champions League first knockout round draw took place on Monday morning.

The former two won their respective groups, with the latter coming in behind Barcelona in theirs, but in a group stage that saw the likes of Bayern Munich and Real Madrid placed in the unseeded side of the draw, such an advantage is diminished significantly.

Pep Guardiola’s side will face Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, recent conquerors of eliminated Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal, meanwhile, drew Bayern Munich because fate demanded it. The Bundesliga side came second in a group that contained Atlético Madrid, but the annual meeting with Arsene Wenger’s side could not be escaped.

Leicester will face Europa League overlords Sevilla, while one of the biggest ties in the round will see Paris Saint-Germain face off against Barcelona.

Dortmund will play Benfica, beaten 2016 finalists Atlético will face Bayer Leverkusen, while current holders Real Madrid will have an awkward (yet manageable) tie against Serie A side Napoli.
