Real Madrid, Barça, Sevilla Face Tough Clashes in Champions League Last-16

NYON, Switzerland – The three remaining Spanish teams in the 2017/18 Champions League can expect tough clashes with some of the heavyweights of European soccer, as revealed Monday by the last-16 draw at the Union of European Football Associations headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

Reigning champion Real Madrid, which finished second in Group H, will come face-to-face with the likes of Neymar Jr., Edison Cavani and its former protege Angel Di Maria when it hosts Paris Saint-Germain in February 2018, before taking the challenge to Paris in the second leg the next month.

Current Spanish Liga leaders Barcelona, meanwhile, will pack their bags for Stanford Bridge to take on London’s Chelsea, which has been strong this season under the leadership of Italian coach Antonio Conte.

Also taking on an English team in the last-16 is Sevilla FC, which will welcome Jose Mourinho’s Group A-topping Manchester United to Andalusia in the first leg.

In a last-16 round dominated by English clubs, London team Tottenham Hotspur is set to take on last year’s runners-up Juventus in Turin.

Liverpool, meanwhile, is braced for a match with Porto, while Manchester City – many bookmakers’ favorite to win – was drawn against Switzerland’s Basel.

German giants Bayern Munich will welcome Istanbul-based Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk has a tricky draw against Roma.

The full fixtures for the first-leg of the UEFA Champions League last-16, to be played between Feb. 13-14 and Feb. 20-22, are as follows:

Juventus – Tottenham

Basil – Manchester City

Porto – Liverpool

Sevilla – Manchester United

Real Madrid – Paris Saint-Germain

Shakhtar Donetsk – Roma

Chelsea – Barcelona

Bayern Munich – Besiktas

The second-leg matches will be played between March 6-7 and March 13-14.
