Bayern Munich: Quick guide to Liverpool’s Champions League last 16 opponents

Manchester City face Bundesliga outfit Schalke, Paris Saint-Germain are Manchester United's opponents, Tottenham Hotspur draw Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool will play Bayern Munich.

Barcelona will be feeling confident going into their last 16 tie against Lyon, particularly with the history books being on their side as the Catalans have come out on top in all three previous two-legged meetings between the two.

Liverpool are now fifth favourites to go one step further than previous year - when they reached the Final in Kiev to be ultimately defeated by Real Madrid - and go on to lift the most prestigious trophy in club football for the sixth time.

They won their Champions League group and will face Spurs next year, with the first leg in England on February 13, before the sides square off at the Westfalenstadion on March 5.

"Bayern have got [Robert] Lewandowski, who's the top scorer in the competition so far so they're a unsafe team". The approach, the view, the design and the interior are all absolutely elite, as befits one of the game's biggest clubs.

'Juventus have strengthened with the signing of Ronaldo but we have good players too'.

European football's greatest accolade has so-far evaded the mega-rich club.

"Cristiano may be the man of the Champions League, but the whole team is strong and we can be confident in our ability to qualify for the quarter-finals". They lost their first two games in the competition, but recovered well to finish second behind Barcelona in their group.

Howie Gayle was the Reds' hero on that occasion, coming off the bench for the injured Kenny Dalglish in the Olympia Stadion to hound the Bayern back line and inspire a 1-1 draw.

"Last season we may have overachieved, we did really well to get to the final". There, they defeated Real Madrid 1-0 in Paris to lift the trophy.
