Arsenal face Barca in Champions League

Arsenal will face holders Barcelona in the Champions League final 16.

Chelsea have been drawn against Paris St-Germain for the third consecutive season, whilst Manchester City face Dynamo Kiev.

Roma versus Real Madrid and Juventus, last year’s beaten finalists, against Bayern Munich are two of the standout matches in the draw.

1st legs are scheduled to take spot on 16-17 and 23-24 February. Return legs are on 8-9 and 15-16 March.

The winners of each group, which includes Chelsea and Manchester City, are at home in the second legs, even though Arsenal will host their very first leg.

Barcelona v Arsenal is a repeat of the 2006 final, which the Spanish champions won 2-1 thanks to two late targets in Paris.

PSG, who are 17 points clear at the leading of the French league, knocked Chelsea out on away goals at this stage last season, whilst the Blues beat them on the exact same rule in the quarter-finals the earlier year.

Dynamo Kiev beat Manchester City in the 2010-11 Europa League final 16, with striker Mario Balotelli sent off for the English side.

The first leg in Kiev will be played in an empty stadium, as Dynamo Kiev had been punished following racist attacks on fans in the course of a group game against Chelsea.

The draw for the quarter-finals will be held on 18 March with the semi-final line-up drawn on 15 April.

Arsenal host Sunderland in FA Cup

FA Cup holders Arsenal will start the defence of their trophy at house to Sunderland in the third round.

Premier League Liverpool face a trip to League Two Exeter, while the leading flight’s bottom club Aston Villa also go to a League Two side in Wycombe.

There are five all-Premier League ties, with Spurs hosting leaders Leicester.

Non-league Eastleigh are at house to Bolton, whilst fellow portion-timers Whitehawk will go to Everton if they can overcome Dagenham & Redbridge.

The non-league hopefuls

FA Cup: Whitehawk’s Steve King wanted Liverpool but gets Everton

Eastleigh are currently eighth in the National League and face a Bolton side struggling at the foot of the Championship.

“We will be searching forward to that tie,” mentioned Eastleigh boss Chris Todd.

National League South side Whitehawk play in the sixth tier of English football and their manager Steve King, whose side will play League Two Dagenham & Redbridge in a second-round replay, had wanted a tie against Liverpool.

“It really is a difficult game to get via against Dagenham & Redbridge first since each teams will want to play that huge tie,” he mentioned.

“It really is 50-50 – the greatest group on the day goes via.”

Seventh-tier Salford are the lowest team left in the competition and need to beat Hartlepool if they are to progress to a third-round tie against Championship promotion-chasers Derby.

National League Grimsby play League A single Shrewsbury on Monday and the winner faces a trip to Championship side Cardiff City.

Cardiff City boss Russell Slade mentioned: “The cup ignores the level. It would be very good to get my former team Grimsby.”

All-Premier League ties

Arsenal have won the FA Cup a record 11 times and will be aiming for a third straight victory after they beat Hull in the 2014 final and Aston Villa in 2015.

FA Cup: Cracking ambitions from the second round

Leicester are major the way in the Premier League but the 4-time FA Cup finalists have never ever won the competition. They face a Tottenham side aiming for a initial FA Cup victory given that 1991.

Manchester City claimed the last of their FA Cup victories in 2011 and, getting been knocked out by Championship sides in the past two years, face struggling best-flight rivals Norwich City.

City have suffered from inconsistency this season, even though the Canaries – 16th in the best flight – have won just after in their final ten games and may welcome the distraction of the FA Cup.

Southampton won the FA Cup in 1976 but have have not gone additional than the fifth round in the previous 10 seasons, and they will welcome former manager Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace, runners-up in 1990, to St Mary’s Stadium for the third round.

Watford, losing finalists in 1984, host six-time winners Newcastle, who have lost in the third round in every of the past 3 seasons.

Possible upsets

Exeter v Liverpool

Aston Villa are struggling at the bottom of the Premier League and have won just twice this season so League Two promotion hopefuls Wycombe hope to cause an upset.

Both clubs have been managed by present Blackburn boss Paul Lambert – Wycombe from 2006-2008 and Villa from 2012-2015.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk is beneath stress following his side’s poor run and the Welsh side face League Two leaders Oxford, who have not won a third round tie for 17 years.

Manchester United, like Arsenal, have won the FA Cup 11 times and host League 1 side Sheffield United, who were beaten semi-finalists in 2013.

The Blades have played the Red Devils four instances in the FA Cup and won after, with that victory coming in 1993.

Chelsea have struggled this season in defence of their Premier League crown and have poor memories of the FA Cup from last season, when they had been beaten four-2 by League 1 Bradford at Stamford Bridge in the fourth round.

Nonetheless, the Blues have won 17 consecutive third-round ties and will be at house against either League One Scunthorpe or League Two Leyton Orient.
