The draw for the Champions League Round of 16 takes place this Monday, starting 12:00 CEST. Real Madrid will be in it as group winners, meaning that they will avoid the best teams in the competition at least in this draw.
Here’s all you need to know, per UEFA.com
Group winners (seeded): Barcelona (ESP), Bayern München (GER), Borussia Dortmund (GER), Juventus (ITA), Manchester City (ENG), Paris Saint-Germain (FRA), Porto (POR), Real Madrid (ESP)
Group runners-up (unseeded): Ajax (NED), Atlético Madrid (ESP), Liverpool (ENG), Lyon (FRA), Manchester United (ENG), Roma (ITA), Schalke (GER), Tottenham Hotspur (ENG)
- There are two pots – one of seeded teams and one of unseeded teams.
- No club can be drawn against a team that played in their group or a side from their own national association.
- Seeded group winners are away in the round of 16 first legs on 12/13 and 19/20 February and at home in the return matches on 5/6 and 12/13 March.
That means that Real Madrid can’t face Atletico de Madrid or Roma, so Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United are clearly the toughest opposition Los Blancos can draw at this point.
