>Tottenham return to Milan as Arsenal get Barca in Champions League

>As it so often does, the Champions League draw has thrown up some rather wonderful pairings.

After Gareth Bale’s heroic hat trick a few weeks ago, Tottenham will return to Milan to take on AC. While  of course difficult, the fact that the second leg will be at White Hart Lane means that if Spurs can keep it within a goal they have a decent chance of progressing. AC no longer have the prowess they once did.

Neighbours Arsenal have the dubious pleasure of taking on the seemingly imperious Barcelona once again. Having been undone quite convincingly by Lionel Messi and company in recent years, and given Barca’s current form, the red half of North London won’t be relishing their tie.

Chelsea will play Marseille, and Manchester United face FC Copenhagen in much more favourable draws for the recent finalists.

The full draw is as follows:

Roma v Shakhtar Donetsk
AC Milan v Tottenham
Valencia v Schalke
Inter Milan v Bayern Munich
Lyon v Real Madrid
Arsenal v Barcelona
Marseille v Manchester United
Copenhagen v Chelsea
