The Blues will host their former manager Carlo Ancelotti, who won the double at Stamford Bridge, in what is a repeat of last year’s semi-final, that Thomas Tuchel’s side won.

Elsewhere the other tie of the round sees Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, last year’s runners-up, face Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid, who knocked out City’s rivals Manchester United in the last 16.
