NYON: Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain renew their high-profile Champions League rivalry in the knockout second round after the draw at the headquarters of European federation UEFA in Nyon, near Geneva.
Notably, PSG will be seeking revenge for their dramatic defeat in 2016-17 when Barcelona famously overturned a 4-0 deficit to win the second leg 6-1 and progress.
The current holders Bayern Munich have been drawn against Lazio, while Porto will take on Juventus. Real Madrid face Italian side Atalanta and Borussia Dortmund, who sacked Lucien Favre at the weekend, have been drawn against Europa League holders Sevilla.
Liverpool face a tricky test in the Champions League round of 16 after being drawn against Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
Leipzig finished as runners-up in Group H after beating Manchester United on final day, a result which prevented Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men from progressing in the competition.
Chelsea also face two tough games against Atletico Madrid after Diego Simeone’s side ended up second in Group A. Atletico dumped Liverpool out of the Champions League at the round of 16 stage last season.
Last season’s quarter-finalists Manchester City will face Borussia Monchengladbach, the German side who finished second to Real Madrid in their group.
