United's clash with Real - which will see
 Cristiano Ronaldo face his former team - was the pick of the ties, and Sir Alex Ferguson's men have the advantage of playing away first.Manchester United will face Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid in a mouth-watering Champions League last-16 showdown, Celtic playing Italian champions Juventus and Arsenal will take on last season's runners-up Bayern Munich.
Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 appearances for United, but it was another Ronaldo - the Brazilian striker - who took the honours when the clubs last faced each other in 2003.
He scored a hat-trick at Old Trafford as Real went through 6-5 on aggregate.
