It was the easiest of the four possible ties Pep Guardiola’s side could have faced when the competition resumes in February, with the German club currently struggling in 13th place in the Bundesliga.
The remainder of Monday’s draw produced some evenly matched ties, with Paris St Germain and Juventus among those to have been handed tough draws.
The draw wasn’t so unkind to Barcelona, though, with Lionel Messi and co expected to ease past Lyon. The Spanish champions are now the second favourites, at best odds of 9/2* with most firms.
