The Champions League draw for the round of 16 was announced this morning by UEFA, and many people are surprised and excited for the fixtures that are upcoming.
Quite a few surprising fixtures have been drawn in the round of 16 of the Champions League 2016/17, and it looks like one or two habits will not move away from the tournament.
Manchester City have not played AS Monaco in the Champions League for a long time and see the two teams clash in the Champions League will be an excellent fixture for both teams. City Manager Pep Guardiola’s side have not been in a good state in the previous games and beating Monaco is look less and less like a reality.
Now this is a fixture everyone is excited about. However, this game is very one-sided, and even Arsenal fans know where this game is going. All in all, Arsenal have been doing well this season, winning their previous game against Stoke City by 3-1. Although, Bundesliga top-dogs will not have those stats in their mind as their head will be in to win this game and get into the quarter-finals.

Elsewhere, Leicester City will be playing their first game in the round of 16 against Spanish team Sevilla. This game will be a difficult one for Leicester as Sevilla will be putting out their strongest team for this match. Although, Leicester City didn’t just win the Premier League by luck so this will be a huge test for both teams.
