Europe's Last 16 await draw



Nine past European Champion Clubs' Cup winners feature in the draw for the round of 16 which will be streamed live on supersport.com and SS3 from Nyon at 12:30 CAT (GTM +2) on Thursday – and will feature nine former title winners.

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.
