The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw is all set to take place on Monday in Switzerland, with Europe's top clubs awaiting their fate in the all-important first knockout stage.

Thomas Tuchel's Dortmund beat Spurs in both legs when the two sides faced off in the Europa League round of 16 in 2016. While Group A runners up Atletico Madrid will face Juventus.

"That's the team of the hour, the league leaders in England, they are playing really good football, very physical, really stepping it up".

Juventus spokesman Pavel Nedved said: 'Atletico have a very good squad and it will be a very hard game for us.

"A tough cookie, but that's something to look forward to as a player".

Tottenham will play Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City, as the only group winners among the four, have been drawn against Schalke.

Bayern are a formidable team, with some incredible players, but the feeling for this season is that a few are past their prime and the new additions haven't made the step-up required.

'It will be a tough one, an interesting one, and I am looking forward to it'.

The Bundesliga teams still involved in the competition are Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04 while Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon are the Ligue 1 teams remaining. Group winners will play the first leg away and the second leg at home.

The first legs will be played from February 12-20, with the second legs scheduled between March 5-13.

Manchester United and PSG have never before met in competitive football. "After a winter break, German clubs are always very unsafe". They lost their first two games in the competition, but recovered well to finish second behind Barcelona in their group. It makes only a massive difference with injuries and stuff like that, German clubs have the time, two or three weeks, to bring players back and stuff like that while in the same moment we have 10 games.
