Real, bidding for a 13th title and third in a row, finished runners-up in their group and paid the price with an extremely tough draw against the big-spending Parisian club.

Last season’s runners-up Juventus will meet Tottenham Hotspur, one of five English clubs in the draw.

Runaway Premier league leaders Manchester City, who have never won Europe’s biggest club prize, will face Swiss club Basel.

Five-times winners Bayern Munich were drawn with Turkish outsiders Besiktas, Manchester United take on Sevilla and Liverpool will meet Porto.

AS Roma’s reward for winning their group was a two-legged tie against Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk.

The first legs take place on Feb. 13-14 and Feb. 20-21 with the returns on March 6-7 and March 13-14.

Draw facts
  • Lionel Messi has never registered against Chelsea in eight previous matches, the most he has faced any club without scoring.
  • Paris's tie with Real Madrid has special meaning for Ángel Di María, who spent four seasons in the Spanish capital and was man of the match in the 2014 UEFA Champions League final, his penultimate outing for the Merengues.
  • Chelsea have had the better of 12 previous meetings with Barcelona, with four wins to the Liga side's three. The Blues prevailed in the most recent clash, edging a 3-2 aggregate victory in the 2011/12 semi-finals.
  • Group winners (the teams playing home second legs) have progressed in 72.3% of round of 16 ties since the current competition format was introduced.
