The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw isn't far away anymore, with the scheduled program beginning at 12:00CET. Live streaming will be available on the uefa.com website once the event starts.

The draw will pit the remaining 16 teams into eight pairs that will fight it out for a place in the Quarter-Finals with games played on 17, 18, 24 and 25 February, and the second legs played on 10, 11, 17 and 18 March 2015. The next draw will be held on 20 March 2015.

The 16 teams have been divided into two pots, with Pot 1 consisting of teams that topped their group in the Group Stage of the competition, and Pot 2 being populated by teams that finished in second place. Each Round of 16 match-up will include a team from Pot 1 and a team from Pot 2, but teams that already faced each other in the Group Stage can't be drawn together again at this point of the competition. Teams from the same country also can't be drawn together.

Those rules limit Barcelona to seven possible opponents, Juventus, Basel, Leverkusen, Arsenal, Manchester City, Schalke, Shakhtar. Whoever Barcelona do get drawn with, the Catalans will play the first leg away from home, while the second match will be played at the Camp Nou.
