    The draw for the Champions League knockout rounds will take place on Friday 16th December at Nyon, Switzerland at 12:00 CET (06:00 EST)

    16 teams will be drawn from two pots with one side from the first pot drawing the team from the second pot. Pot one will consist of seeded teams who finished first in their respective Champions League groups and pot two will have those unseeded teams who finished second.

    No teams from the same country (i.e - football federation) can be drawn together, except in the case of Liverpool who hold special exemption from this rule. Teams from the same group stage can also not play eachother at this stage.

    NB: Country given in brackets


    Arsenal [ENG]
    Barcelona [ESP]
    Inter Milan [ITA]
    Juventus [ITA]
    Liverpool [ENG] *
    AC Milan [ITA]
    Olympique Lyonnais [FRA]
    Villarreal [ESP]

    Non Seeds:

    Ajax [NED]
    Bayern Munich [GER]
    Benfica [PRT]
    Chelsea [ENG]
    PSV [NED]
    Real Madrid [ESP]
    Rangers [SCO]
    Werder Bremen [GER]

    * Hold exemption from same country rule - (in this case however, it will not matter, because they faced Chelsea in the group stage.)
