Uefa Champions League draw-Arsenal to play Bayern Munich in last 16

The Champions League’s round of 16 draw has been a yearly source of dread for fans of the London-based club, with the worst possible outcome usually being the result – in the past six seasons they had drawn Barcelona and Bayern Munich twice each, as well as AC Milan and Monaco.

The other English sides in the draw fared better, with Leicester City being drawn to play Spanish side Sevilla and Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to take on Monaco.

Aside from Bayern v Arsenal (a draw which seemed preordained to the point where one of Bayern’s accounts joked about it on Twitter), undoubtedly the tie of the round pits French champions Paris St Germain against the defending Spanish champions, Barcelona.
