Champions League: Arsenal draw Barcelona
14th December 2015

Arsenal will play holders Barcelona in the last-16 of the Champions League.

The Gunners, who scraped through to the knockout phase after defeating Olympiakos 3-0 last Wednesday, were beaten by the Spanish giants in 2006 (final), 2010 (quarter-finals) and 2011 (last-16).

Chelsea, the other London team in the competition, will face French champions PSG for the third consecutive season.

Mourinho and Blanc will go head-to-head again

Jose Mourinho’s Blues were knocked out by Laurent Blanc’s side last term so will be looking for revenge this time around.
