Arsenal and Chelsea have both been handed tough games in the Champions League Last 16 draw today.

Arsene Wenger's sides reward for beating Olympiakos last week is a trip to Spain to face the Champions League champions Barcelona. Arsenal have failed to adcance from the Last 16 since 2010, where they were eventually knocked out by Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

Chelsea have been paired with French champions PSG for the tird year in a row. Last year the Parisians knocked out Chelsea at the Last 16 stage on away goals to avenge their quarter-final defeat the previous season.

Manchester City will be happy with a trip to Ukraine. Manuel Pellegrini's side topped their Champions League group for the first time in their history. They face Dynamo Kiev in the Last 16. The game in Kiev will be played behind closed doors because of racist behaviour of the Kiev fans in earlier games this season.

Other intriguing ties include Roma v Real Madrid and Juventus v Bayern Munich.
