Jose Mourinho's Chelsea were drawn Monday against Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City tackle Barcelona in two blockbuster Champions League last 16 ties.Like PSG, English champions City will be out for revenge after being brushed aside 4-1 on aggregate by Barca at this stage in the 2013/2014 campaign.City's director of football, former Barcelona player Txiki Begiristain, said: "We have plenty of confidence with the way we qualified beating Bayern Munich at home and Roma away, so the players will be working hard to get fit and arrive in confidence for those games.The last 16 draw staged at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, gave holders Real Madrid a palatable pairing against German side Schalke 04, coached by Roberto Di Matteo, who was in charge of Chelsea when they were crowned kings of Europe.Arsenal, finalists in 2006, face their coach Arsene Wenger's old club Monaco, Italian champions Juventus will have to overcome Borussia Dortmund, and German giants Bayern Munich, who beat Borussia in the 2013 final, play Shakhtar Donetsk.Juventus were similarly relieved to avoid Bayern and Real.
