Champions League last-16 draw: Barcelona draw PSG, Chelsea tackle Atletico Madrid


Provided Neymar recovers from his injury over the next two months, Barca fans will see a familiar face playing for the opposition when their side take on PSG in Champions League round of 16.

Barcelona will face Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea will be hoping to get the better of Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 of 2020/21 UEFA Champions League.

Ronald Koeman’s side knew in advance they’d be facing a formidable opposition in the next round after they had failed to stop Juventus from clinching the group. Their tie with the French champions will also rekindle memories about the sweet 6-1 victory over PSG at Camp Nou in 2017.

Frank Lampard might have hoped to get an easier draw after his Chelsea side swatted aside opponents in the group stage, but the Blues’ two-legged tie with Diego Simeone’s Atleti will be a stern test of how far they have come after spending hundreds of millions of dollars on new signings in the summer.

Elsewhere Borussia Monchengladbach have been drawn against Manchester City and Bayern Munich face an easy-looking double-legged clash with Lazio. Premier League champions Liverpool will face Julian Nagelsmann’s RB Leipzig and Juventus will clash with FC Porto. Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, after progressing from the same group, will face Sevilla and Atalanta, respectively.
