UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw

Share

In stark contrast to the reaction from fans of their perennial rivals Manchester United, Liverpool's response to the Champions League draw seemed nearly universally positive. They'll be too good for Bayern and there's only a couple of sides who could stop them.

Atlético are unbeaten in their last nine matches against Italian clubs (W7 D2). In that way, it's the most-favorable draw these two sides could have ever wanted.

Porto overcame Roma 4-1 on aggregate in last season's play-offs. All four Premier League teams moved through.

As with the Reds, Munchen have won the European title an impressive five times, the last coming five years ago against Klopp's old side Borussia Dortmund at Wembley Stadium.

"It's always hard to play Manchester United", said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

Instead, Barca will face Lyon in the knockout stages and will surely be favourites to progress to the quarter-finals.

The two historic sides have not met in a competitive match since the UEFA Super Cup in 2001, when Liverpool emerged victorious, though they did face off in the Audi Cup in pre-season a year ago as the Reds ran riot.

Of course, finishing second meant that Liverpool had to face a group victor in the last-16. Over 29 games, he has amassed a 9-4-16 record.

Pavel Nedved lamented Juventus' misfortune after the Bianconeri were paired with Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League on Monday. The English club have never played Bayern since the tournament was rebranded the Champions League.

Manchester United also finished second in their group with the Red Devils having to settle for the runners-up spot behind Juventus in Group H after losing their final game to Valencia last week.
