Last 16 await Friday's draw

Seven previous European Champion Clubs' Cup winners feature in the draw for the round of 16 which will be streamed live on UEFA.com from Nyon at 12.00CET on Friday.

The UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw in Nyon will be streamed live on UEFA.com from 12.00CET on Friday 16 December – and will feature seven former title holders.

The lineup for the draw contains seven past winners of Europe's premier club competition as well as four teams new to the knockout stage. Though FC Basel 1893 have previously appeared in a second group stage, this is the first time the Swiss outfit have reached the round of 16, while SSC Napoli, FC Zenit St Petersburg and APOEL FC – the first Cypriot representatives to have come so far – are also in uncharted territory.

Two seeding pots have been formed: one consisting of group winners and the other of runners-up.

Group winners: FC Bayern München, FC Internazionale Milano, SL Benfica, Real Madrid CF, Chelsea FC, Arsenal FC, APOEL FC, FC Barcelona

Group runners-up: SSC Napoli, PFC CSKA Moskva, FC Basel 1893, Olympique Lyonnais, Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Olympique de Marseille, FC Zenit St Petersburg, AC Milan

Seeded group winners will be away in the round of 16 first legs on 14/15 and 21/22 February and at home in the return matches on 6/7 and 13/14 March. No team can play a club from their group or any side from the same association.

The draw for the remainder of the competition will be held on 16 March and the tournament concludes at the Fußball Arena München on 19 May. Bayern are looking to become the first team to play a European Cup final in their own stadium since AS Roma in 1984.
