Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham in the hat for last 16; Watch the draw live on Sky Sports News from 11am
Monday 16 December 2019 11:56, UK
Manchester City have enjoyed - and profited from - handy draws in recent cup competitions. But will they land a favourable last-16 tie in the Champions League on Monday?
City, who topped a Champions League group featuring Atalanta, Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Zagreb, have been handed Basel and Schalke at this stage in the past two seasons.
They could meet Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli or Lyon this time around, with the latter pair, on paper, the weaker opponents.
Other cup competitions have been kind to City so far this term - they take on League One Oxford for a place in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, having beaten Championship Preston and out-of-sorts Southampton in previous rounds, while their FA Cup third round match is at home to League Two Port Vale.
Last season City faced Rotherham, Burnley, Newport, Swansea, Brighton and Watford on their way to winning the FA Cup and beat Oxford, Fulham, Leicester and Burton before seeing off Chelsea on penalties in the Carabao Cup final.
In 2017/18 their run to Carabao Cup success was West Brom, Wolves, Leicester, Bristol City and an Arsenal team that had to overcome Chelsea in the semi-finals, while a shock slip-up against Wigan cost City in the fifth round of the FA Cup after knocking out Burnley and Cardiff.
City - along with Premier League rivals Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham - will find out who they play in the last 16 of the Champions League when the draw takes place at 11am on Monday.
Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, RB Leipzig, Manchester City, Atalanta, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Tottenham, Liverpool, Napoli, Valencia, Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Lyon.
There will be two seeding pots - one consisting of the eight group winners and the other of the eight runners-up.
No team can play a club from their group - or any side from their own country, meaning there will be no all-Premier League showdown at this stage.
Seeded group winners will play the first leg of the two-legged ties away from home.
February 18/19 & 25/26: Round of 16 - first leg
March 10/11 & 17/18: Round of 16 - second leg
April 7/8: Quarter-finals - first leg
April 14/15: Quarter-finals - second leg
April 28/29: Semi-finals - first leg
May 5/6: Semi-finals - second leg
May 30: Final, Istanbul
