In the games yet to be completed, Bayern Munich’s impressive return to action which saw them win all nine matches in the Bundesliga, as well as secure victories in the German Cup semifinal and final, makes them among the favourites for the tournament — and they bring a 3-0 lead over Chelsea back to the Allianz Arena.

Manchester City secured an impressive 2-1 win away to Real Madrid and will look to finish the job off at the Etihad, while Barcelona are in a strong position to overcome Napoli, having drawn 1-1 at the San Paolo.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo could be in line for his first round-of-16 exit for 10 years if Juventus fail to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Lyon.

Meanwhile, City are set to learn their fate over their involvement in next season’s Champions League, with a decision on their appeal over their two-year ban expected next week.

City were handed a two-year suspension from European club competitions and a €30 million fine by UEFA in February after being found guilty of breaching financial fair play regulations.

There are no seedings or country protection for the draw.
