GLORIOUS SCENES: The players celebrate with the fans at the final whistle

The Champions League last 16 draw will take place on Monday 12 December, from 11am GMT, in Nyon, Switzerland.

The draw will be made from two seeding pots, one consisting of group winners, the other from runners up.

As a group runner-up, City will be at home at the Etihad Stadium in the first leg (to be played either on 14/15 or 21/22 February) and away in the second leg (either on 7/8 or 14/15 March).

We will have full coverage of the draw live on mancity.com as it happens.
