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.
