Barcelona in Arsenal's way, Spurs head back to Milan

ARSENAL will meet Barcelona in the knockout stages of the Champions League for the second year running following the draw for the last 16 in Switzerland today.

Tottenham Hotspur return to Milan to face AC while Manchester United have been drawn against Marseille and Chelsea meet Danish side Copenhagen.

The draw for the last 16 of the Champions League is:

Roma v Shakhtar Donetsk

AC Milan v Tottenham

Valencia v Schalke

Inter Milan v Bayern Munich

Lyon v Real Madrid

Arsenal v Barcelona

Marseille v Manchester United

FC Copenhagen v Chelsea

The first legs will be played on February 15/16/22/23 with the second legs on March 8/9/15/16.

Manchester City will face Greek side Aris Thessaloniki in the first knock-out stages of the Europa League while Liverpool will take on Sparta Prague.

Both Premier League sides should be confident of making the last 16 following today's draw, but Rangers have a tougher-looking test against Sporting Lisbon.

Roberto Mancini's City will be aware however that Aris stunned the holders Atletico Madrid in the group stage - winning 3-2 away, a result which ultimately knocked the Spanish side out of the competition.

Liverpool may have been the draw specialists in the group phase, having tied four of their six games, but in Sparta they will face a side who have proved equally difficult to beat, having drawn three of their group matches.

If they get through, City will face Besiktas or Dynamo Kiev in the last 16, while Liverpool would face Lech Poznan or Braga. If Rangers progress, they would face Lille or PSV Eindhoven.

The draw for the round of 32 in the Europa League is:

Napoli v Villarreal
