UEFA Champions League

Chelsea drawn against Lille In Champions League last sixteen

In the Champions League last-16, Chelsea will face LOSC Lille.

After a tense final group stage match against Zenit, in which Magomed Ozdoyev scored a stoppage-time equalizer for the Russian team, Juventus were seeded unseeded in the draw, allowing them to take top spot.

Despite this, Thomas Tuchel's team has benefited from a more gentle draw.

Lille won Group G last season after breaking PSG's Ligue 1 stranglehold, but they have struggled to recreate that form in France, where they are currently 11th in the table.

The first leg of the last-16 tie will take place in February at Stamford Bridge, with the return match taking place in March in Lille, France.

Going into the round of 16, Chelsea have won 4, drawn 1 and lost 1. The European champions will continue their quest to winning the champions league title for the second time in a roll and for the first time in the clubs history.
