Arsenal, after a hard-fought victory against Benfica in the round of 32, will take on Greek Champions, Olympiacos for a place in the last eight of the competition.

Tottenham, many believed got another easy draw on paper and perhaps on the pitch as they take on Dinamo Zagreb who saw off Krasnodar in the previous round.

The last time the two teams met was in the round of sixteen of the 2009/2010 season of the UEFA Champions League where the Red Devils dismantled the Rosseneris 7-2 on aggregate.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored 29 goals in 53  appearances for Manchester United as he helped the then Jose Mourinho-led team to Europa League triumph in 2017. But the Swede will be an opponent this time.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will look to better his last season’s performance in the competition where he lost to Sevilla, the defending champions in the semi-finals.
