English clubs prepare for Euro draws

ARSENAL and Chelsea will be eager to avoid AC Milan when the draw for the Champions League last 16 is made this morning.

The Italian giants, crowned kings of Europe seven times, appear the biggest threat among the seven teams apiece the English clubs could meet.

Napoli and Basel, who eliminated Manchester City and Manchester United respectively, are also potential opponents for the Gunners and the Blues.

City and United, having failed to progress from the group stage, join the Europa League and will be interested observers when the last 32 draw is made, also today.

Possible adversaries include Ajax, Porto, Lazio, Lokomotiv Moscow, Trabzonspor and Wisla Krakow, who edged Fulham out at the group stage.

City face having to play their second leg on a Tuesday afternoon.
