After a mediocre Champions League group stage campaign this season, Barcelona will have to step up their game in the first knockout rounds.

The Blaugrana have been drawn against Chelsea in the Round of 16, with the first leg to be played at Stamford Bridge on 13/14 or 20/21 February, and the return leg will be played at Camp Nou on 6/7 or 13/14 March.
This is a really tough draw, but things could change until February and Chelsea are not having as good a season as they had a year ago. Antonio Conte is under pressure, players aren’t really happy with the coach, and Chelsea could implode until then. But we have a huge history with Chelsea in the Champions League, so never take them for granted.
The full results of the draw are in, including Real Madrid vs PSG and Juventus vs Tottenham Hotspur!
