Social media erupts following Champions League draw
The Champions League draw has thrown together a number of mouthwatering ties for the last-16 round of the competition, but fans were more interested in taking to Twitter to poke fun at other teams.
Prior to the draw, the excitement was building...

Others took time to make fun of Arsenal, who will play Bayern Munich, again, despite topping their group, while second-place PSG were paired with Barcelona.

Leicester's Champions League adventure takes them to Sevilla, which for some is the pick of the round.
Buzzing for Leicester potentially the easiest draw
