When is the Champions League draw? How to watch and who City could face

Manchester City fans will be eagerly awaiting the UEFA Champions League draw after sealing their place in the last 16.

Pep Guardiola’s side were held to a 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Saturday night, their sixth consecutive clean sheet, with three of those coming in the Champions League.

Having topped their group with relative ease, City will be hopeful of avoiding any of Europe’s biggest clubs, having faced and beaten Real Madrid at this stage last season.

Here is all of the key information you need to know ahead of the Champions League last-16 draw.

When and where is the draw?

The draw is set to take place on Monday, December 14 at 11am (GMT). Nyon in Switzerland is the location for the event.

When are the last-16 ties?

The first leg of the round-of-16 fixtures will be played on February 16/17, 2021, with the second legs set to take place on March 9/ 10.

Can City draw a Premier League team?

Teams who played in the the same group cannot be drawn against each other, while clubs from the same national league cannot be drawn against one another, so City can’t face Porto, Liverpool or Chelsea until the quarter-final stage. Liverpool and Chelsea both topped their groups anyway, so wouldn’t have been possible opponents for City anyway.

Who could City face?

Barcelona. Atletico Madrid, Borussia Monchengladbach, Atalanta, Sevilla, Lazio and RB Leipzig are City’s potential opponents in the last 16.

Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Real Madrid, City, Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain all won their groups.
