The Reds and City will both be seeded for the first round of knockout games while their London rivals will not.

A number of other major clubs, including Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli, are not seeded meaning there should be some glamour ties in February.

All the teams will be dreaming of reaching the final at Istanbul’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium on May 30.

But first, they’ll have to negotiate the tricky knockout phase, starting with the last 16.

Champions League draw: Date and time

The Champions League Round of 16 draw will take place on Monday, December 16.

It will be held at 11am UK time – that’s 12pm at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The draw will decide who will face who in eight matches with the group winners only able to play the runner-ups.

Teams will not be drawn against clubs they faced in the group stages or from their own country so there will be no all Premier League clashes.
