Champions League draw: Chelsea v Atletico, Leipzig v Liverpool

C

helsea have been handed a tough Champions League draw with a tie against Atletico Madrid, while Liverpool face RB Leipzig and Manchester City take on Borussia Monchengladbach.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea finished top of their group, but luck was against them for the round-of-16 draw as they now take on Diego Simeone’s Atletico in the knockout stages.

Liverpool have drawn Leipzig – the side who knocked Manchester United out in the group stages – while Man City have landed an intriguing test against a Gladbach team who fought their way out of a tough group.

One of the ties of the last-16 is undoubtedly Paris Saint-Germain against Barcelona – and last season’s finalists PSG will be confident against a struggling Barca side despite the brilliance of Lionel Messi.

Another plum tie sees the attacking Atalanta facing Real Madrid, who only just squeezed out of the group stages.

Juventus will need to avoid coming unstuck against a plucky FC Porto, while Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund could be a great shootout.
