Manchester United will face Ligue 1 leaders, Paris St-Germain, in the last 16 of the Years Champions League.
A mouthwatering tie pits two of the greatest players of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi against each other.
They met in the group stage of the competition last season with both winning one game a piece. Messi was playing for Barcelona while Ronaldo was with Juventus.
Defending champion, Chelsea, have been drawn to face French champions, Lille, while six-time winners, Liverpool, come up against Red Bull Salzburg.
Premier League champions, Manchester City take on last season’s Europa League winners Villarreal.
Pep Guardiola’s side have never won the competition and were beaten in last season’s final by Chelsea.
The draw appeared to suffer an administrative error when United had initially been drawn against Villarreal – they were ineligible to face each other as they were in the same group.
The first legs will be played on February 15, 16, 22 and 23, with the second legs on March 8, 9, 15 and 16.
Chelsea are the only English side to play their first leg at home, with the other three all away after winning their groups.
A major change from this season sees the away goals rule removed, so ties level after 180 minutes will go to extra time.
If the teams still cannot be separated after the additional 30 minutes, then it goes to a penalty shootout.
This season’s final takes place in St Petersburg, Russia, on May 28.
