Champions League Last 16 Full Draw: Arsenal V Bayern Munich; Man City V Monaco; Leicester V Sevilla
Arsenal have been drawn against Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League, with Manchester City to face Monaco and Leicester to play Sevilla.

The Gunners would have been hoping for an easier tie after winning their group for the first time in five seasons, but will face one of Europe’s top clubs after Bayern qualified for the knockout stage by finishing second in Group D.

Arsenal were eliminated by Bayern at this stage of the competition in both 2013 and 2014, and the two sides also met in the group stages last season.

Leicester will take on Europa League champions Sevilla

Premier League champions Leicester are the only round-of-16 debutants and are likely to be given a tough test by hardened European campaigners Sevilla, who have won the Europa League for the last three seasons.

Manchester City reached the semi-finals last year and will continue their campaign against Monaco, who beat Tottenham home and away on their way to winning Group E.
