Following the round-of-16 draw, Chelsea and Tottenham learned their Champions League fate.
Both teams won their groups after a second-half comeback clinched top position for Antonio Conte’s side, while Graham Potter turned around Chelsea’s fortunes after they had only one point from their first two games.
Graham Potter’s side topped their group following impressive wins over Italian champions AC Milan, but the Blues are winless in their last four following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal.
The two-time European champions were knocked out at the last 16 stage by Real Madrid last season, who went on to win the Champions League for the 14th time.
The draw has produced two intriguing last-16 matches, with Chelsea facing Borussia Dortmund and Conte facing AC Milan at San Siro.
Chelsea will travel to Dortmund for the first leg before returning to Stamford Bridge for the return fixture.
Both sides will play away from home first before the second legs are held in London at Stamford Bridge and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The matches also provide plenty of returns and extrinsic narrative.
For Tottenham, Conte will play back at his former home stadium. The Italian left Inter Milan – who also play at San Siro – last summer and will now return back to face arch rivals AC Milan.
When will the last-16 knockout matches be played?
Although not yet confirmed as to which slot the games will have, half of the last-16 first leg matches are set for February 14/15 with the other half taking place one week later on February 21/22.
The second leg ties will be two weeks on from the first leg which will be either March 7/8 or March 14/15.
