Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has admitted AC Milan are the team to avoid in Friday's Champions League last-16 draw.

Milan are the stand-out side from the seven group stage runners-up Villas-Boas' side could be paired with at UEFA headquarters in Nyon. Having narrowly won their group, Chelsea managed to steer clear of the likes of fellow table-toppers Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan.

But that would mean little if they are drawn against seven-time European champions AC Milan, and Villas-Boas said: "There are, of course, a lot of top teams also in those runners-up spots. One team with seven European titles and, for sure, those will be the ones to try to avoid."
