For the draw for the round of 32 last December, there was a rather complicated process involving seeded teams, Europa League group winners and those sides entering the competition having finished third in their respective Champions League groups.

Clubs from the same nation were unable to face each other – but those restrictions and seedings are stripped away at the last-16 stage. In essence, any team can provisionally be drawn against one of their other 15 remaining sides (save for any restrictions announced ahead of the draw).

When are the last-16 ties?

Celtic scored a crucial away goal in the draw with Copenhagen last week

The first legs are scheduled for Thursday March 12, with the second legs to be held a week later on March 19. The draw for both the quarter-finals and semi-finals will take place on March 20.
