Arsenal will play German giants Bayern Munich for the fourth time in five Champions League campaigns, after the two were drawn together in the Round of 16.
Despite topping Group A without losing a single game, Arsenal have been paired against the 2013 European champions in what promises to be an entertaining encounter - as recent history would support.
Indeed, since February 2013 the two clubs have faced off in the Champions League a total of six times, a fact not lost on Twitter - with Arsenal winning on two occasions, Bayern three and a 1-1 draw in March 2014.
The last meeting between the teams was a 5-1 drubbing of Arsenal by Pep Guardiola's Bayern side - with goals from Robert Lewandowski, David Alaba, Arjen Robben and a double from Thomas Muller.
In the aftermath of the draw for the February 2017 tie, Twitter was awash with reaction - ranging from optimism through to pessimism, for Arsene Wenger's side's chances of success.
Here's a taste of some of the reaction to the Gooners' Round of 16 draw, including an update on the three certainties in life, belief in an Arsenal curse, and even a message from the future - curtesy of an alien.

Someone at UEFA is taking this Bayern vs Arsenal joke too far. Seriously it's no longer funny! #UCLdraw— Imhons Erons (@ImhonsSays) 12 December 2016
Imagine finishing first in your group and still ending up with Bayern. Champions League just isn't Arsenal's competition is it?— . (@AnfieldRd96) 12 December 2016
