    Not quite, due to national clashes distorting it (English pot 1 sides have a choice of 6 for example; Besiktas have a choice of 7)

    Now we turn our attention to the next round. Games will be played 13/14 and 20/21 February with return matches played 6/7 and 13/14 March.

    Pot 1
    Manchester United
    PSG
    Roma
    Barca
    Liverpool
    Manchester City
    Besiktas
    Spurs

    Pot 2
    Basel
    Bayern Munich
    Chelsea
    Juventus
    Sevilla
    Shaktar
    Porto
    Real Madrid

    On paper the easiest games would probably be Basel or Porto. Personally I would like to draw Bayern. I think they are there for the taking this season and I would love to visit the Allianz. I’ve heard really good things.

    Who does everyone else want?

    Isn't there also the splitting of matchdays? I mean they separate Barcelona and Madrid so they don't play on the same day, and probably will do the same with us and Utd? That usually means that once the first 'random' draw takes place some others are narrowed down to only a couple of options?

    We will get Real Madrid or Juventus , but we have an advantage of having the 2nd leg at home , PSG will also get a tough draw whilst the Rags and Dippers will get easier games, UEFA dont like "new money".

    I think a tough draw is more likely.
