Remember to tune in on 12/13 & 19/20 February for the first leg while the second leg will be played on 5/6 & 12/13 March.
...
So there we go - here is your final Champions League Round of 16 Draw!

- Schalke vs Man City
- Atletico Madrid vs Juventus
- Man Utd vs PSG
- Tottenham vs Borussia Dortmund
- Lyon vs Barcelona
- AS Roma vs Porto
- Ajax vs Real Madrid
- Liverpool vs Bayern Munich
...
Which means there are only two teams left - the big one! It's a return to Germany for Jurgen Klopp - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich! 
...
Ajax vs Real Madrid! 
...
AS Roma vs FC Porto! 

That's a big let off for both teams who will heave a sigh of relief because they're not facing the heavyweights. 
...
Lyon vs Barcelona! 
...
Tottenham Hotspur vs Borussia Dortmund! 

They played each other once in the Europa League where Spurs took a B team to Dortmund. Not this time surely. 
...
Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain! 

That is a big one for Jose Mourinho's side. Can they qualify for the quarter-finals? 
...
It's Atletico Madrid vs Juventus!
...
Next up is Atletico Madrid vs who can only draw Porto, PSG, Bayern and Juventus. 
...
It's Schalke 04 vs Manchester City!
...
Finally we're underway! The first ball out is... Schalke 04.
...
UCL Draw rule explanation time. If you want to read the rules again, scroll down a bit and you'll find the rules. But you already know them, don't you? 
...
Look who's here! It's only Luis Garcia - the hero of Liverpool's 2005 UCL campaign. The man who scored (or didn't score) the Ghost Goal depending on whether you support Chelsea or not. 
...
If I were to blog like Marchetti speaks, I woulda typea like thisa.
...
No Infantino but we still have UEFA Deputy General Secretary Giorgio Marchetti handling the draw. He's the guy who looks like a college professor putting people to sleep with his lectures - even when he explains the rules for the UCL Draw. 
...
It's Pedro Pinto who's handling the UCL Draw. How many of you miss now-FIFA-President Gianni Infantino explaining the rules and handling the draw? 
...
And we're live from Nyon!
