Potential Opponents for Premier League Clubs


The UEFA Champions League group stage is done and dusted, and now lovers Premier League will be wondering which clubs thier favourite teams will be facing.

Leicester City were surprisingly the most outstanding of English clubs, but the Foxes then suffered the worst defeat by a Premier League team last night in a 5-0 loss to Porto.

Arsenal topped their group for the first time in five years, while Manchester City finished runners up to Barcelona in Group C, with Tottenham only managing to secure a place in the Europa League after finishing third in Group E.

In terms of potential opponents for Arsenal, they can face Benfica, Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, Real Madrid, FC Porto or Sevilla. PSG and Manchester City are ruled out because of permutations; you cannot be drawn against a team from your own league or group.

Leicester can also be drawn up against any of the sides Arsenal might face, this time including PSG. They are unable to be paired with Porto in the last 16, as they were in their group.

Despite their dream start to their first Champions League campaign, the Foxes will be hoping to avoid European giants, Bayern Munich or Real Madrid.

After finishing second in Group C behind Barcelona, Manchester City will either come against Napoli, Atlético Madrid, AS Monaco, Borussia Dortmund or Juventus in the last 16.

Here are the full 16 teams in Monday’s draw:

Group A: Arsenal
Group B: Napoli
