Champions League draw: Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde admits to Lyon uncertainty

Champions League draw: Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde admits to Lyon uncertainty

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.

While Mauricio Pochettino's men beat Peter Bosz' Dortmund twice in last season's Champions League group stage.

In the other draws, defending champions Real Madrid will face Ajax while their LaLiga rivals Barcelona will take on Lyon. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) has been the top-scorer in the group stage with 8 goals followed by Lionel Messi (Barcelona) who has 6 goals so far.

"Liverpool are the last team Bayern Munich would want in the draw"'. Lyon sneaking by Shakhtar Donetsk, Ajax outpacing Benfica, and Valencia dropping behind Manchester United may be the biggest surprises.

Looking at the last-16 draw for the Champions League two sides stick out for me, Barcelona and Liverpool.

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.




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.

Nedved said: "We didn't have much luck".

What channel is the Champions League last-16 draw on?

He told Liverpool's official website: 'Difficult. The second round will be played on March 5/6 and March 12/13.

The first leg of the matches will be played on February 12/13 and February 19/20 with 2 matches scheduled each day. They have looked scintillating and devastating in equal measure during the group stages, and I expect them to carry that right through to the very end.
