Manchester City have once again qualified for the knock-out stages of Europe’s premier club competition, as they hope to successfully defend their maiden Champions League crown.
Pep Guardiola and his players overcame the challenge of RB Leipzig, BSC Young Boys, and Crvena zvezda in this season’s group stage, winning all six matches and finishing top of their group to claim a more favourable last-16 draw.
It was the first time Manchester City had won all six of their group stage matches, in their most successful opening round of the tournament since first qualifying for the competition in the 2011/12 season.
Full details on the UEFA Champions League last-16 draw, including how to watch the procedure take place live and when proceedings will commence on Monday morning, can be found below.
Ahead of the eagerly-awaited draw in the UEFA Champions League, City Xtra have now simulated proceedings for the last-16, ahead of the real-life event itself that is due to begin from around 11AM (UK) on Monday morning.
Our simulated procedure saw a heavyweight opening draw as La Liga giants Real Madrid will picked to face off against the runners-up in their group Paris Saint-Germain, in a meeting between Kylian Mbappe and the club many believe will be his next destination.
Manchester City were drawn to face a favourable tie themselves as they travel to the Netherlands, whilst fellow Premier League side Arsenal also took on a promising chance of reaching the quarter-finals with a clash against Porto.
