United to face Milan in last 16

Holders Barca clash against VfB


Friday's draw also pitted Jose Mourinho, now coach of Inter Milan, with his old club Chelsea.

Holders Barcelona were given a relatively straightforward task against Bundesliga strugglers VfB Stuttgart, while nine-times winners Real Madrid will face Olympique Lyon with 2006 runners-up Arsenal given a favourable draw against Porto.
Former Russian champions CSKA Moscow play Spanish side Sevilla.

Beckham, who is rejoining Milan on a short-term loan from LA Galaxy, had said earlier this week that he wanted to play against the English side he left in 2003.
"Seven years have gone by and I want it to happen," Beckham, who helped United win the Champions League in 1999, told Gazzetta dello Sport. "Me against United, great, no?"
Manchester United director of communications Phil Townsend welcomed the prospect of Beckham's return.
"He'll get a fantastic reception as players coming back usually do at United," Townsend told Sky Sports News.

"Obviously he was a very popular player with the fans when he was there, a terrific servant for the club and we all hope he is playing for them."
The first legs will be played on February 15/16 with the returns two weeks later.  The teams who finished as runners-up in the group stage will play at home in the first leg.
