Potential Tasty Match-Ups For Champions League Round Of 16 Revealed

Potential Tasty Match-Ups For Champions League Round Of 16 Revealed

The Champions League Round of 16 draw takes place at 11am on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland - and one Reddit user has worked out some potentially tasty match-ups.

Two seeding pots are formed: one consisting of the eight group winners and the other of the eight runners-up.

UEFA says the exact draw procedure will be confirmed before the ceremony, but no team can play a club from their own country at this stage, so there won't be any all-Premier League clashes just yet.

Reddit user u/emi_nga has published a helpful table to highlight just who might face each other.

Seeded group winners are away in the first leg in February and at home in the return leg in March.

So, Liverpool can therefore face any of the unseeded teams - Barcelona among them - but not Atalanta as they were in the same group.

Manchester City can play any of the unseeded sides apart from Porto, while Chelsea will play any of the unseeded teams apart from Sevilla.

As the seeds, the Premier League trio will get to play the first leg away and the second at home.

Meanwhile, Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has backed holders Bayern Munich to retain the Champions League but expects the English sides to venture far into the knockout stages.

"I put Bayern Munich favourites, but I would have Liverpool close second favourites," Ferdinand told BT Sport.

"It's great to see big teams are in there, the English boys are in there bar Manchester United disappointingly.

"But I think the English teams will go deep in the tournament. They've got some real quality. Bayern and possibly PSG are the only threats.

"If they [Bayern] don't have injuries, I think they'll go on and do it again, with the experience they have in that team and the explosiveness they've got in the wide areas."
