LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – On their return to the UEFA Champions League for the first time in about seven years, Arsenal have been drawn to face FC Porto in the round of 16.
The Gunners, who topped their group after match day six, will be seeking to move into the last eight of the competition by seeing off a tricky two-legged fixture against the Portuguese side.
In the round of 16 draw made on Monday afternoon, FC Barcelona will also face Italian Serie A defending champions, Napoli in an entertaining fixture.
Copenhagen, who ensured that Manchester United were thrown out of the elite club competition, will have another Manchester club to face after being drawn against Manchester City.
The reigning English champions will fancy their chances against the Danish side, but, like they did against the English team’s neighbours, this may yet be another difficult tie.
Below is the draw in full and all the pairings as concluded by UEFA on Monday, 18 December, 2023:
