The balls were not kind to Barcelona (that's a weird sentence) in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Draw that took place in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday.
The Blaugrana will face Paris Saint-Germain starting in February, with the first leg taking place at the Parc des Princes and the return match happening at Camp Nou. This is the second time in three seasons that Barça and PSG face off in the knockout stages. The Blaugrana won their quarterfinal matchup 5-1 on aggregate in 2015, and went on to win their fifth Champions League title that season.
It's not a surprise that Barça face PSG, and since the French powerhouse are not as spectacular as they were in previous seasons, there's a big chance we'll ask the Paris side "Who's your daddy?" again.
These are the eight Round of 16 matches drawn in Nyon, with some very good matchups like Arsenal vs Bayern, Juventus vs Porto and Monaco vs Man City:
- Arsenal (ENG) vs Bayern Munich (GER)
- Napoli (ITA) vs Real Madrid (ESP)
- Barcelona (ESP) vs Paris Saint-Germain (FRA)
- Atlético Madrid (ESP) vs Bayer Leverkusen (GER)
- Monaco (FRA) vs Manchester City (ENG)
- Borussia Dortmund (GER) vs Benfica (POR)
- Leicester City (ENG) vs Sevilla (ESP)
