They were both one of the eight seeded teams after managing to finish top of their groups. With the draw now made, Man United will meet Olympiakos on February 25th and Chelsea will play Galatasaray on February 26th.
Not so fortunate were Man City who were unseeded and really didn’t want to draw Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern in the first knockout stages City will be kicking themselves, as their second-place finish provided them with a seeded team and what a team at that - Barcelona!
