Holders Manchester City will play Copenhagen in the last 16 of the Champions League, while Arsenal face Porto.

Danish champions Copenhagen, who finished above Manchester United in their group, reached the knockout stage for the first time since 2011.

The first legs take place on 13-14 or 20-21 February and the second on 5-6 or 12-13 March.

City and Arsenal are seeded, meaning they will play the second leg at home.

City won Group G with a 100% record, while Copenhagen, who lost 1-0 at United before beating them 4-3 at home, were runners-up to Bayern in Group A.
