Barcelona faces Arsenal in the last draw

Champions League 2010 draw – last 16

Milan vs Tottenham
Valencia vs Schalke
Inter vs Bayern
Lyon vs Real Madrid
Arsenal vs Barcelona
Marseille vs Manchester United
København vs Chelsea

Arsenal and Barcelona will play again, the Gunners lost to Barca last season at the quarter final stage. Arsenal will be looking for revenge and to assert themselves.

“It is a tough draw for us,” said Gunners secretary David Miles. “But given that Barcelona got the better of us last year we feel that the time is right and that we can turn the tables this time. Lionel Messi is obviously one of the quality players in Europe and manager Arsène Wenger will have done his homework. He is their main danger man.”

Tottenham will once again travel to the San Siro to face AC Milan.

Manchester United and Chelsea seem to have easier draws - Red Devils face Marseille and the Blues face FC Copenhagen.

Inter Milan and Bayern Munich were drawn against each other. “It is a very interesting draw,” said Bayern director Karl Hopfner: “It is a very interesting draw to meet them again so soon after last season’s final. We are looking forward to it but both of us have not started that well in the league or the Champions League.”

The last remaining tie is between Lyon and Real Madrid.
