UEFA Champions League 2011: Round of 16 draw
Tottenham face AC Milan, Man Utd go to Marseille, Chelsea take on Copenhagen but the real tie of the draw has to be Arsenal taking on Barcelona in a repeat of last year's quarter final.
Jose Mourinho would hope that his Real Madrid side will progress against Lyon and put him another step closer to his third Champions League title as a manager with three different clubs.
The first legs of the Round of 16 draw will take place 15 and 23 February 2011 with the second legs 8 and 16 March.

The undoubted tie of the round sees Arsenal facing Spanish Champions Barcelona. William Hill are offering 11/4 that Arsenal qualify while Barca are 1/4 to get through to the last eight. Chelsea are the shortest priced English side to qualify and they are just 1/20 to overcome FC Copenhagen.
Hills are offering 5/4 that Chelsea are the furthest progressing English side, with Manchester United 15/8. Being drawn against Barcelona in the next round has hampered Arsenal’s chances of progressing the furthest with Hills easing their odds from 7/2 to 11/2 to hold the English bragging rights. Arsenal have also drifted in the outright Champions League market from 11/1 to 20/1, while Barcelona are the 9/4 favourites. Chelsea are the 4/1 third favourites and are the shortest priced English team.
"The draw has not really inspired too much in the way of stand-out ties, except, of course, the Arsenal/Barcelona tie. It is sure to spark the imagination of our punters and could generate one of the highest turnovers for a Champions League game this year,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
Hills are offering 15/2 that all four English teams progress to the quarter finals and 5/1 that this year’s final is contested between two English teams. Conversely 100/1 is the price for all four teams to be defeated in their last 16 ties.
