Also, three-time defending champion Real Madrid will first play at Ajax, while Barcelona was drawn with Lyon.

Liverpool were drawn against Bayern Munich in another matchup that is certain to provide plenty of entertainment.

"Along with Liverpool this is certainly the most exciting front three and the most hard to play against because they combine this with real quality and the finishing is good", he said.

"A tough cookie, but that's something to look forward to as a player".

Hubbleshubbles opined: "Unless Liverpool pull a Liverpool, I literally don't see us standing any kind of chance". And that this Bayern team is significantly weaker than previous editions.

"It's always hard to play Manchester United", said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

Danny Mills thinks Tottenham's Champions League last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund is "difficult but winnable".

Schalke are down in 13th place, and came through Group D as runners-up. "German clubs are always very risky". As such, they list Bayern games played at Football Arena Munich. They lost their first two games in the competition, but recovered well to finish second behind Barcelona in their group.

The first legs will be played from February 12-20, with the second legs scheduled between March 5-13.
