Champions League Draw
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.
As far Chelsea is concerned, We would certainly like to avoid Napoli and AC Milan for obvious reasons. Russian opponents are best avoided, due to extreme weather and pitch issues.
I would any time prefer Basel over all other teams !!!
