Holders Real Madrid will face Napoli in this year's UEFA Champions League last 16, with Bayern Munich and Arsenal set to meet in the competition for the fourth time in five seasons following today's draw in Nyon.

Debutants Leicester City will look to continue their, and The Best FIFA Men's Coach Award nominee Claudio Ranieri's, fairytale against Sevilla, while Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona will face each other in the competition for the seventh and eighth time in four years. There's also a repeat of a 2015 last 16 clash, with Bayer Leverkusen hoping to avenge their penalty shootout defeat to Atletico Madrid. 

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City will meet Monaco for the first time in one of only two ties in the draw - including Leicester against Sevilla - never to have been played before in European competition. 

Reigning champions ​Los Blancos​ have only just touched down in Japan for this year's FIFA Club World Cup, the fruit of their victory against city rivals Atletico in May's finale, but they will already have one eye on the defence of their crown - and a potential participation at UAE 2017 - following their draw against the Serie A side.
