Four English teams will learn who they will face in the last-16 of the UEFA Champions League when the draw takes place later today.

Here are all the details of when the draw takes place and where it will be available to watch for UK viewers.

Champions League draw: What time will it take place?

The ceremony for the Champions League draw begins at 11am GMT and will take place at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland.

Teams who topped their group will be drawn against teams that finished second. Teams can not be drawn against another side from their own country or their group.

Champions League draw: Pots

Seeded teams: Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Bayern Munich, Benfica, Napoli, Porto, Real Madrid

Unseeded teams: Liverpool, AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Club Bruges, Eintracht Frankfurt, Inter Milan, Leipzig, Paris St-Germain

Chelsea will play one of Borussia Dortmund, Club Bruges, Eintracht Frankfurt, Inter Milan, Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain. They can not play AC Milan, who finished second in their group, nor can they play Liverpool, given they are from the same country.

The same rules dictate that Manchester City can play one of Milan, Bruges, Frankfurt, Inter, Leipzig and PSG.

Equally, Tottenham will be drawn against one of Milan, Dortmund, Bruges, Inter, Leipzig, or PSG.

Meanwhile, Liverpool can only be drawn against Bayern Munich, Benfica, Porto or Real Madrid, given three seeded teams are English and Napoli won the Reds' group.
