Victors over fellow German side Borussia Dortmund at Wembley in the 2012-13 final, Bayern's bid to retain the trophy continues against table-topping Arsenal who were expecting a tough draw after finishing second in Group F.

Man City, who finished second to Bayern in Group D after stunning the Germans with a 3-2 win in the last pool game, fared little better as they have been paired with Spanish giants Barcelona, winners in 2009 and 2011, and will have to stop the world's best player Lionel Messi.

Chelsea have a tough trip to Turkey, with Didier Drogba set for a return to Chelsea with new club Galatasaray, while Manchester United were drawn with a much easier tie against Greek outfit Olympiakos.

Real Madrid are targeting a 10th European Cup and must get past Schalke, whom they visit in February, while last season's runners-up Dortmund are in Russia to meet Zenit St Petersburg. Seven-time European champions AC Milan welcome ambitious Spaniards Atletico Madrid to the San Siro and cash-rich Paris St Germain head to Germany to face Group A runners-up Bayer Leverkusen.
