Chelsea will face Galatasaray, who will be led by the man who converted the decisive penalty for the Blues in the 2012 final; Didier Drogba. The Turkish side sneaked past Juventus in the group stage thanks to a late goal from Wesley Sneijder.
Manchester United will take on Olympiakos, who have been propelled to the last 16 by the goals and form of Kostas Mitroglou. David Moyes has not had an easy start to life as United manager in the Premier League, but he guided the Red Devils to first place in their Champions League group and will be hopeful of making the quarter-finals.
Having finished second in their group, Arsenal will host Bayern at the Emirates Stadium before returning to Bavaria for the second leg. The Gunners met the Germans at the same stage last season and were eliminated on away goals following a 2-0 victory at the Allianz Arena.
Chelsea and Manchester United, as group winners, will play their second legs at home.
