NYON, Switzerland -- The champions of Spain will play a champion of Spanish football values after the Champions League last-16 draw delivered compelling pairings Monday. Vapormax Flyknit 3 Suomi . Barcelona was drawn to face in-form Manchester City, shaped with a strong contingent of Spain internationals by the Catalan clubs former director of football. The four-time winner must first travel to Etihad Stadium, where Manchester United and Arsenal have already been routed in the Premier League this season. "I think Barcelona will be very concerned that they have drawn us," said City coach Manuel Pellegrini, who spent the past nine seasons in the Spanish league. "They are not the team of two years ago." Chelsea will have an emotional reunion with former striker Didier Drogba when it plays Galatasaray, and defending champion Bayern Munich was paired with Arsenal in the last 16 for the second straight year. "Im the luckiest man in this competition in both games Ill be playing home," Drogba, who spent eight seasons at Stamford Bridge, wrote on his Instagram account. Both City and Arsenal ended up with tough draws after finishing second in their Champions League groups. "No one of the (seeded teams) wanted to find Man City or Arsenal," said former Barcelona playmaker Luis Figo, who helped conduct the draw. "Its bad luck for Barcelona and Bayern Munich." Also, nine-time winner Real Madrid will face Schalke, Manchester United got a favourable draw against Olympiakos, Borussia Dortmund will face Zenit St. Petersburg, AC Milan will play Atletico Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain will meet Bayer Leverkusen. The first legs will be played Feb. 18-19 and 25-26, with the return matches set for March 11-12 and 18-19. Man City is the only newcomer to the Champions League knockout rounds, and wasted an opportunity to be seeded when Pelligrini did not realize that one more goal in its 3-2 win in Munich last week would have won the group ahead of Bayern. Now, it opens the program against Barcelona at home, where the team is averaging more than four goals a game. "Pelligrini is a very, very good coach," Barcelona director Amador Bernabeu said. "We know from his coaching in Spain that when we play him we have problems all the time." Manchester Citys director of football is Txiki Begiristain, who joined the English club from Barcelona. "If you want to be champions you need to beat the best ones," Begiristain said. "We have to score in away games in the Champions League." Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho said last week that Drogba should return to his former club. The Ivory Coast forwards last kick as a Chelsea player was the penalty shootout winner in the 2012 final against Bayern. The German champions have a re-match with Arsenal, which won 2-0 in Munich last season after Bayern had cruised to a 3-1 win in London. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola also renews rivalries after his Barcelona team eliminated Arsenal in 2010 and 11. "I know Arsene Wenger quite well, I know his players quite well," Guardiola said at the Club World Cup in Morocco. "In the draw it was the most difficult team." Madrid continues its quest for a record 10th European title with a relatively low-key pairing against Schalke. "On paper, yes, but that is only theory," Real Madrid director Emilio Butragueno said. "Football is unpredictable. Its a German team with a great mentality." Dortmund, which lost to Bayern in last seasons final, got arguably the most unwanted trip -- a Feb. 25 visit to Russia to play Zenit in almost certain below-freezing temperatures. "It wont be easy," Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said. "But when I look at the teams the other German clubs have to play against, we got through OK." Leverkusen will be at home first against big-spending PSG and its feared forward line of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani. "You dont have to be an expert to say we are the outsiders," said Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voeller, whose team lost 5-0 at home to United last month. PSG coach Laurent Blanc said it "could have been worse," but then added: "If they are second to Bayern it means they are a talented team."

The Oilers jumped into the free agent market early by signing defencemen Keith Aulie (six-foot-six, 228 pounds) and Mark Fayne (6-3, 210 pounds) and left-winger Benoit Pouliot (6-3, 197-pounds). Two days earlier MacTavish traded lightweight forward Sam Gagner to Tampa Bay for 6-3, 203-pound right winger Ted Purcell. On Tuesday they also re-signed 6-3, 240-pound left winger Luke Gazdic, who had 15 fighting majors last season, to a two-year contract. "They all have size," stressed MacTavish. "We added a lot of size in the last two days. We havent touched the core group of guys we ended the season with and weve added what we think is a much more well rounded complement to those players with size and speed and puck pursuit. "All these moves are going to go a long ways to addressing a serious shortcoming in our on-ice performance and I think we can expect to be much better next year." MacTavish said he went into the day with two targets: Fayne and Pouliot. After a strong sales pitch he signed Pouliot to a five-year contract worth $20 million, got Faynes name on a four-year, $14.5-million deal and inked Aulie for $800,000 for one year. "We made a case for our situation here in Edmonton," he said. "It was a compelling story for them, as it was for me to tell. The situation is improving here, in spite of the fact that the results have lagged, but it was a compelling enough situation that at the end of the day we were able to quickly react to these players." Pouliot, 27, has played for five different NHL teams, including the New York Rangers last season when he collected 15 goals and 36 points iin 80 games and 10 points in their run to the Stanley Cup final.

"Pouliot was our most important addition because we needed someone with speed," MacTavish said, explaining why he agreed to the $20-million deal for the player who made $1.5 million last year in New York. "We talked about size, we talked about increasing our competitiveness and hes a guy who tracks the puck very well and pressures the puck very well. Hes a great skater and we really felt we needed to add that element." Both he and Fayne said they were eager to get to Edmonton because of the direction the team appears headed in and the young talent on the roster. "I think with everything that Edmonton has gone through and everything that is now going for them, I think its a good opportunity with the young guys and everything," Pouliot told the Oilers website. "Its going to be a good fit for me." MacTavish said Fayne brings them a guy who makes simple plays with the puck, but makes them highly effectively and is a very good defender. He thinks Aulie is one of the players with the opportunity to enhance his value on a one-year contract. "He has the opportunity because of his age and his skill set to have a significant impact on our team. When you look at the make-up of our defence now it looks like an NHL defence, which it didnt always last year," he said. The one area the Oilers didnt address is centre ice where they lack size and aggressiveness. Their No. 1 centre is Ryan Nugent-Hopkins at 6-1 but only 180 pounds. "We didnt address all of our needs today," MacTavish agreed. "Ideally we would like to be able to add a centreman. We do have some depth there but they are young, developing players. "Were still hopeful we can add a centrepiece to what weve done alreadyawe will be trying to do something in that regard." ' ' '
