FC Barcelona will face the Italian side AC Milan in the first knock-out stage of the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League. The match is a repeat of last season's Quarter-Final tie, which Barca won convincingly. AC Milan has been struggling for some time in their League this season, but if the past some weeks results are to be taken into account - they may have finally found some stability. The lose of Ibrahimovic and Silva could come as a huge problem for Milan when they face the Spanish league leaders. But still AC Milan is the second most successful team in European Cup history and they have to be treated with much respect. The match also should see ex-Barca player Bojan Krkic playing against us, if he gets the opportunity. The tie will be held in February and March 2013. Everyone expects Barca to get past the Italian side, but it could prove to be a real tough task. But the fact that we play the second leg at home is a very positive thing.

Mean while Barca's fierce rival, Real Madrid has been drawn to play Manchester United. Being the Group winner, Manchester United will play the second leg at home and that should see Ronaldo going back to the stadium where he made a name for himself. The other draws are Galatasaray v Schalke, Celtic v Juventus, Arsenal v Bayern Munich, Shakhtar v Dortmund, Valencia v PSG and Porto v Malaga. Three of the four Spanish side qualified has ended up getting the most toughest of opponents, only Malaga being an exception facing Porto.
