Manchester City will face RB Leipzig in the Champions League last 16.

Pep Guardiola’s side are once again hoping to end their search for an elusive Champions League title, with the arrival of Erling Haaland helping to establish City as firm favourites for this season’s crown.

Haaland scored five times in just four group stage appearances as City topped their group ahead of Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Copenhagen.

The Premier League champions were knocked out by eventual winners Real Madrid in last season’s semi-finals, following a dramatic comeback in the Bernabeu.

City will travel to Leipzig for the first leg before returning to Etihad for the return fixture.
