Chelsea have been drawn against Atletico Madrid in the Women's Champions League last 16 while Manchester City will take on Fiorentina.

WSL leaders Chelsea will come up against a familiar face in Toni Duggan with the England international having helped Atletico knock Manchester City out of the tournament at the same stage last season.

Emma Hayes' side, semi-finalists in 2018 and 2019, have been in stunning form over the past year, going on a record-breaking 33-game unbeaten run which was only recently ended by a shock home defeat to Brighton.

Meanwhile, Gareth Taylor's City will also play their first leg at home, against a Fiorentina side that finished second in Serie A last season but is off the pace this term, lying fourth and 16 points behind pacesetters Juventus.

City, semi-finalists in 2017 and 2018, will also be buoyed by the fact the Italians were beaten 6-0 on aggregate by Arsenal in last season's competition.
