With the Champions League group stages coming to a close last week, all eyes now turn to the knockout stages with the draw for the round of 16 taking place today.

Only two Premier League teams have made it to the knockout phase as Manchester City and Arsenal topped their groups, meanwhile Manchester United and Newcastle both crashed out by finishing at the bottom of their groups.

Brendan Rogders' Celtic also failed to make it out of the group stage as they picked up just one win and a draw from six games.

Below is everything you need to know about today's draw.

When is it?

Monday December 18 at 11am GMT.

Where is it?

Where can I watch it?

UEFA are set to stream the draw on their social media pages and YouTube channel for free online.

The seeded team will be the home side for the second leg of the tie.
