Juventus won Group H ahead of title holders Chelsea. The Bianconeri suffered a 4-0 loss in London, but won the reverse fixture in Turin and collected 15 points against the Blues’ 13.

On the other hand, Inter lost both games against Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid in Group D, but managed ten points in six matches, three more than third-placed Sheriff.

Despite being on two different pots, Juventus and Inter can’t meet in the next stage of Europe’s elite competition as clubs from the same country can’t only face each other from the quarter-finals.

Where to watch the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw

The draw takes place in Nyon at 11.00 UK time and will be streamed live on UEFA.com. You can follow the draw live and comment on Football Italia’s liveblog.

How the draw works

The draw features 16 teams: the winners and the runners-up from each of the eight UEFA Champions League groups.

Two seeding pots will be formed: one consisting of the eight group winners (seeded teams) and the other of the eight runners-up (unseeded teams).

No team can play a club from their group or any side from their own association. Any other restrictions will be announced ahead of the draw ceremony.

Seeded group winners play away in the round of 16 first legs and at home in the return matches.

New rules

The ‘away goal rule’ has been removed, so ties level after 180 minutes will go to extra time irrespective of the number of goals each team has scored at home and away. If the teams still cannot be separated after the additional 30 minutes, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out.
