Bundesliga sides find out their Champions League opponents

The draw for the second round of the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League has just been made.

Three Bundesliga sides qualified from the group stage for the round of 16, whilst Bayer 04 Leverkusen dropped into the Europa League.

Defending German champions Bayern Munich won their group which included Tottenham Hotspur, Olympiacos and Galatasaray, taking a maximum 18 points.

The Bavarians have been drawn up against Chelsea in the second round. It will be the first time the two clubs have met since the English Premier League side came out on top in the 2012 final at the Allianz Arena.

Chelsea are managed by former player Frank Lampard and currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League.

High-flying RB Leipzig will take on Tottenham Hotspur in the second round, with the first leg in North London. Spurs were hammered 2-7 at home by Bayern Munich in the group stage before losing 3-1 in Munich earlier this month.

Jose Mourinho is the new man in charge of last season’s Champions League runners-up, replacing Mauricio Pochettino in November.

Germany’s final representative in this season’s competition, Borussia Dortmund, have been drawn up against Paris Saint-Germain in the next round.

Having finished runners-up to Barcelona in their group, Lucien Favre’s side will be at home in the first leg against former manager Thomas Tuchel.

The first leg of each tie will take place in February, and the second legs in March.
