Liverpool, Juventus, Porto, Tottenham, Ajax, Manchester City and Manchester United make up the other seven spots in the competition.

Barcelona have already faced Tottenham in this season's tournament in the group stage. However, the fact there's a strong group of English sides at this stage worked out well for Barcelona the last time that happened.

Back in the 2008/09 season Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United made the quarter finals. Yet in that season FC Barcelona, under the leadership of Pep Guardiola, won the treble: the Champions League, LaLiga and the Copa del Rey.
