The draw for the first knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League has taken place and the remaining 16 teams in the competition now know who they will have to get past to progress toward glory in May.

While some teams might be satisfied with their opponents, there will inevitably be some who feel they have been handed a very raw deal indeed.

The Round of 16 has thrown up some top-draw clashes, displayed below in full.

Group winners could not be paired with a runner-up from their own national association, nor one against who they played in the group phase. Teams would have been hoping that winning the group phase would have made their passage through the knockout stage a little easier to begin with—but it doesn't always work out that way.

Here are the teams who have been handed a tougher test than they would have been hoping for in the first knockout stage.
