City saddled with Barcelona in UCL draw

Manchester City have come crashing back to reality after being drawn against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.

The English champions dramatically won through to the knockout phase, but will meet Lionel Messi and mates for a second straight season, having been knocked out by the Catalans at the same stage last term.

Elsewhere, Premier League leaders Chelsea will visit Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of a star-studded fixture, while the Juventus and Borussia Dortmund duel should fascinate.

Pep Guardiola’s Bayern have it easiest of the major title fancies, drawn against Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, as they look to recapture the silverware won in 2013.
