Manchester United will take on Real Madrid in the most high-profile clash of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 after the two powerhouses were drawn against each other on Thursday morning.
The dream tilt will provide plenty of storylines, from Sir Alex Ferguson facing Jose Mourinho, to Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Old Trafford.
That wasn’t the only high-profile match-up drawn. FC Barcelona will take on AC Milan in another clash of traditional powerhouses. Milan is down this year, while Barcelona will be heavily favored, but it should still be a worthwhile match-up to watch.
The most fun Round of 16 match-up to watch could feature Borussia Dortmund’s exciting clash against Shakhtar Donetsk. That clash features two young and dangerous teams that love to attack in waves.
Arsenal didn’t draw Barcelona again, but did find a tough match-up in German powerhouse Bayern Munich, which will look to improve on last year’s second-place finish in the UEFA Champions League.
Here is the full Round of 16 draw:
