The UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw was announced on Monday at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. Among the draws, the only heavyweight clash emerged as the fixture between FC Barcelona and Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Ronaldo’s Juventus have been scheduled to play FC Porto while defending champs Bayern Munich will face Lazio.
The Round of 16 draw featured the eight group winners (seeded) and eight runners-up (unseeded). The seeded teams will play at home in the second legs with no teams playing a club from their UEFA Champions’ League group or a club from the same national association.
A match is decided on away goals, first and foremost. If the teams still can’t be separated, it goes to extra time. If both teams score the same number of goals during the 30 additional minutes, away goals count double. If there are no further goals in extra time, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out (alternate takers).
