Champions league draw: Cristiano Ronaldo set for homecoming
Champions League draw has been the latest lore among football fans as they prepare to witness the best teams battle for the title from different leagues. The last 16 teams clashes can be categorised as a hit and a miss, but might become more interesting at a later stage. Football fans might not be able too see El Clasico right upfront, but they can take the seat for a different kind of re-union.
Cristiano Ronaldo will return to Old Trafford since his transfer from Manchester United FC, but this time he will be wearing rival colours. Real Madrid’s match-up against Manchester United FC in the Champions league draw will also see two flamboyant managers clash at the sidelines of the football field; Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
Barcelona will meet vengeful AC Milan, which will be looking to settle the score with the side that has been functioning in prime form. The last time these two sides faced each other, the match ended in a draw with Barca winning 3-1 on aggregate, fans would not be hoping for a draw this time.
Arsenal FC will see the German side, Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions league. Arsenal FC has not been in its elements, but might be peaking at the right time. The head-to-head record stands at Bayern Munich 2 wins, Arsenal FC 1 win and a draw. Arsene Wenger has retained most of the English talent, which might come in handy for the next round of games.
Other matches from the Champions league draw find German champions Borussia Dortmund meet Shakhtar Donetsk, Valencia face Paris St-Germain, Porto come up against Málaga and Galatasaray play Schalke. Scottish side, Celtic will take on Serie A leaders Juventus in another match of the last 16.
