In full: Champions League round of 16 draws

However based on quality of players, history and form we can begin to predict the winners from each tie;

Manchester City v Monaco

On paper City have enough in them to beat Monaco but the French side are no push overs. Recall their defeat of Arsenal at the same stage two seasons ago?

Pep's side are disorganised in defense while Monaco are strong in attack with a rather reliable defense.

Manchester have just four wins from their last 15 games in all competitions

Verdict: Monaco to go through

Real Madrid v Napoli

The Champions League draws are always easy shots for Real Madrid and it seems so once again. Napoli have been inconsistent in the Champions League this season and have neither the quality or experience to beat Real Madrid over two legs.

Real Madrid attackers Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema

Verdict: Real Madrid to progress

Benfica v Borussia Dortmund

Inconsistent in the league but superb in the Champions League is what Dortmund are. They are a fine side from front to back and are a match for any team in Europe. Benfica however are looking like an Europa League side with inconsistency.

Dortmund will fancy their Chances against Leverkusen

Verdict: Dotmund to sail through

Bayern Munich v Arsenal

Bayern have dropped a level this season desppite topping the Bundesliga table and Arsenal have moved a quality upward.

If the two teams are to meet this December, expect Arsenal to be victors but with German teams afforded the winter off and English team set to play all through aand even to the new year, fatigue could come into play.

Verdict: Bayern smiling at the quarterfinals

Porto v Juventus

Iker Casillas and Gianluigi Buffon face off again but unlike previous encounters, the Italian has the better team to back him up.

Porto are a good team in their own right but they have neither the quality or form to trump Juve who are looking to make the final.

Bayer Leverkusen v Atletico Madrid

One of the teams everyone wants to avoid in the Champions League is Atletico who topped ther group ahead of Bayern Munich. They have made the final twice in the past three years and are not to be trifled with.

Paris Saint-Germain v Barcelona

Unai Emery is under pressure to deliver at PSG and could have seen his side top their group but for a lucklustre display against Ludogarets on the final group game.

Barcelona meanwhile are a top team and are considered favorites for the title this time around.

Sevilla v Leicester City

Forget the 4 - 2 win over Manchester City last time out, Leicester City have actually been awful this season. Sevilla meanwhile have been one of the best teams in Europe this season.

Credit to Leicester for winning four of their group games but they were actually not paired with a top team. Club Brugge, Porto and FC Copahengen are not exactly top class in the mould of PSG, Atletio or Bayern.

Leicester City wouldn't be a match for Sevilla

Verdict: Sevilla qualify for quarter-finals
