Manchester City had a tremendous Champions League group stage campaign, so their reward is a good tie in the first knockout round.

The Blues have been drawn against FC Basel in the Round of 16, with the first leg to be played in Switzerland on 13/14 or 20/21 February and the return leg to be played at the Etihad on 6/7 or 13/14 March.

It could have been a lot worse, so City avoid powerhouses like Juventus and Real Madrid and should be going to the quarterfinals without much trouble. Basel did beat Manchester United in the group stage, though, so they deserve a lot of respect.

Still, good draw!
