Real Madrid to face Roma in Champions League last-16 round

Real Madrid will take on AS Roma in the last-16 round of the Champions League. The draw held at UEFA headquarters in Nyom has paired Los Merengues with the Italian side.

The first leg will be played in Rome on Wednesday February 17th, while the return leg will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday March 8th.

The remaining four pairings are the following: Juventus vs Bayern Munich, Dynamo Kyiv vs Manchester City, Benfica vs Zenit, and Gent vs Wolfsburg.
