Holders Barcelona will play Premier League leaders Arsenal in the last 16 of the Champions League, 10 years after the sides faced each other in the final, following the 14 December draw for the first knockout stage.

Barca claimed European glory for a fifth time after beating Juventus 3-1 in June’s final, as Luis Enrique’s charges completed a memorable Treble.

Arsenal reached this campaign’s knockout phase after claiming a 3-0 win at Olympiakos in the final group game to finish second, behind Bayern.

Chelsea and PSG have been drawn together for a third season in a row, the French club having knocked out their English counterparts last term on away goals.

“For Barcelona, Arsenal I think is a good match for us, but all the teams are very, very difficult, but we are happy. We would prefer Arsenal over Paris Saint-Germain. Why? Because we played many many times Paris Saint-Germain. For us Arsenal is a very very good team,” said Bernabéu

The first legs are scheduled to take place on February 16-17 and 23-24, with the return duels on March 8-9 and 15-16.

The match-ups were decided by a draw at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Monday.
