ROAD TO THE FINAL AS LIVERPOOL SEEKS ISTANBUL ENCORE

With the draw of the knockout rounds of the UEFA Champions League out, Liverpool will be hoping for another Istanbul encore as they kick start their journey to the final at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul , Turkey.  Liverpool came from the dead by scoring 3 second half goals in a spate of 6 minutes against a great AC Milan team that had scored 3 unreplied goals in the first half.  Liverpool triumphed ultimately in the penalty shoot-out.

Liverpool will face last season’s semi-finalists RB Leipzig in the last 16 of the Champions League, while Chelsea come up against Atletico Madrid.

Manchester City will face Borussia Monchengladbach, who are in the last 16 for the first time since 1978.

Holders Bayern Munich face Italian side Lazio, who are in the knockout stage for the first time in 20 years.

Barcelona face Paris St-Germain in arguably the tie of the round, a repeat of their 2017 classic.

All three Premier League teams will be away for the first leg before having home advantage for the return matches.

The first legs will be spread across two midweeks, taking place on 16, 17, 23 and 24 February, with the second legs on 9, 10, 16 and 17 March.
