Holders Chelsea FC may be out but the lineup for the draw contains nine past winners of Europe's premier club competition as well as tournament debutants Málaga CF; all the other 15 teams have been at this stage before, in Real Madrid CF's case for the 16th year in a row.

Nine different nations are represented in the knockout phase and only five of the 16 clubs were in this round last season: FC Bayern München, FC Barcelona, Arsenal FC, AC Milan and Madrid. Just two sides did not start in the group stage, Málaga beginning in the league route play-offs and Celtic FC in the champions route third qualifying round.

Two seeding pots have been formed: one consisting of group winners and the other of runners-up.
