The dates have been confirmed for Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City’s Champions League last 16 ties.

The Gunners booked their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League after beating Olympiakos and they’ve been rewarded with a bumper tie against Spanish giants Barcelona.

The North Londoners will entertain Luis Enrique’s side at the Emirates on February 23 before heading to the Nou Camp for the reverse fixture on March 16.

Chelsea secured top spot with a 2-0 win over Porto last week but have been handed a tricky test having once again been drawn to play Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16.

Jose Mourinho’s side will play their away game first as they head to Paris on February 16 before playing host to the Ligue 1 champions on March 9th at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester City booked their place in the knockout stages for the first time in their history after topping their group and they’ve been handed a favourable tie against Dynamo Kiev.

The Citizens will head to Ukraine on February 24th for the first leg with the second leg being held at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday the 15th March.

I’m sure City will be confident of beating Kiev over two legs to book their place in the last 8 but Arsenal and Chelsea will face tough tasks against familiar opposition to progress to the next stage of the Champions League.
