Defending champions Real Madrid have been drawn to play against Liverpool in the last 16 of the 2022-23 Champions League.
It is a repeat of the 2022 Champions League final earlier this year that saw Madrid win a tense affair 1-0. The two teams also played in the 2018 final, which Real Madrid won 3-1.
The other blockbuster tie of the round sees Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich face off against Paris Saint-Germain and their attacking trident of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. The French champions lost top spot on the final matchday of the group stage, thus risking a tougher draw like this one.

The clash between 14-time champions Real Madrid and Liverpool comes less than a year after Vinicius Junior's goal decided the 2022 final between the two sides.
As well as the 2018 final, Real also beat Liverpool in the 2021 quarter-finals, drawing 0-0 at Anfield after a 3-1 home win.
Bayern and PSG met in the 2021 quarter-finals too, with the Ligue 1 side advancing on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate score.
PSG missed out on top spot in their group after Benfica won 6-1 in their last match to edge the head-to-head record on away goals.
