Champions League draw LIVE!

Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League in a repeat of last season’s final. Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 in Paris and the pair will now face each other again after being drawn together in Monday’s last-16 draw.

The draw also threw up another heavyweight clash, with Paris Saint-Germain to come up against Bayern Munich. Chelsea will take on Borussia Dortmund in a match that will see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang return to his former club. The spotlight will also be on Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham for that tie as the England international is being tracked by Chelsea and other Premier League clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

Tottenham will take on AC Milan, who finished second in Chelsea’s group, in the last-16 as part of a tie that will see Antonio Conte return to his native Italy. Elsewhere, Manchester City will take on German side RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt will face Napoli. Belgian side Club Brugge, who have impressed on their run to the last-16, will face Benfica, while Inter Milan were drawn against Porto.

Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League in a repeat of last season’s final.

Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 in last season’s final in Paris and the pair will now face each other again after being drawn together in Monday’s last-16 draw.

The draw also threw up another heavyweight clash, with Paris Saint-Germain due to come up against Bayern Munich.

Chelsea and Tottenham, who both won their groups, will be pleased with their draws as they avoided facing PSG.

Aubameyang loves a reunion

11:47 , Matt Verri

The story this weekend was Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang coming up against his former club, and that will once again be the case in February when Chelsea face Borussia Dortmund in the last-16.

Aubameyang scored 141 goals in 213 appearances for the Bundesliga side - he’ll be hoping to have more success against them than he managed against the Gunners yesterday.

Crouch might be needed

11:39 , Matt Verri

The way Tottenham’s injury problems are going, Peter Crouch won’t be too far away from a call-up.

AC Milan a tough test, but they were poor in the two group-stage matches against Chelsea and were deservedly beaten.

Spurs will hope to have worked out how to play for a full 90 minutes by February.

Good news for Spurs fans

11:31 , Matt Verri

11:25 , Matt Verri

Well then.

Man City will be happy with their draw, up against RB Leipzig, but for the other three English clubs they will have a tough time of things in the last-16.

Liverpool face Real Madrid in a repeat of last season’s final, while Tottenham are up against AC Milan who sit second in Serie A.

Chelsea meanwhile will face Jude Bellingham’s Borussia Dortmund, who proved against City in the group stage how difficult an opponent they can be.

Guardiola will be happy enough with that.

11:12 , Matt Verri

Here we go - and we mean it this time.

Time for the draw.

11:11 , Matt Verri

Now the small print is being read out.

Seeded vs unseeded, with the seeded sides playing at home in the second leg. You can’t play a team either from the same country or the same group.

We’re all experts by now.

11:08 , Matt Verri

Who is the big name helping with this morning’s draw?

Hamit Altintop of course, getting the call-up with Istanbul hosting this season’s final.

11:06 , Matt Verri

Giorgio Marchetti is on stage, the main man himself.

He’s explaining how rushed the group-stage schedule was, hopefully they take some inspiration from that and show similar urgency with the draw.

11:02 , Matt Verri

UEFA going through all the teams in the draw... we can do the same but in a much quicker fashion.

Seeded: Bayern Munich, Benfica, Chelses, Man City, Napoli, Porto, Real Madrid, Tottenham.

Unseeded: AC Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Club Bruges, Eintracht Frankfurt, Inter Milan, Leipzig, Liverpool, PSG.


Here we go!

11:01 , Matt Verri

We’re up and running in Nyon. Let the games begin.

Brace yourselves...

10:55 , Matt Verri

The draw ceremony is set to get up and running in just a few minutes now.

We’ll then all be hoping they keep the chat to a minimum and the draw starts as quickly as possible, but that always proves to be wishful thinking.

Real to do it again?

10:47 , Matt Verri

Of the clubs to have won the Champions League since 2000, only two are not in this morning’s last-16 draw.

Step forward... Barcelona and Manchester United.

Real Madrid have dominated the competition in recent years - can they make it a sixth win in ten years?

Not long now!

10:40 , Matt Verri

About 20 minutes to go until the draw gets underway.

The mood at Chelsea isn’t great at the moment, after defeats to Brighton and Chelsea, but they got the job done in Europe to top their group.

Poor form and a number of injury problems are impacting the Blues at the moment - will surely look very different come February.

Napoli flying on all fronts

10:34 , Matt Verri

A defeat to Anfield ended Napoli’s hopes of a perfect group-stage, but even that got the job done to seal top spot.

They are unbeaten in Serie A, six points clear at the top of the table, and with the likes of Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Victor Osimhen looking so dangerous, the Italian side are very much a team to avoid in the knockout stages.

Guardiola: We can’t only rely on Haaland

10:27 , Matt Verri

Pep Guardiola believes Erling Haaland can help Manchester City in the biggest moments this season, but warned the striker cannot do it all on his own.

It’s 23 goals already so far for Haaland, including five in the Champions League, but the City boss does not want his side to become solely reliant on him.

”If we rely only on Erling’s shoulders, we are not going to win the Champions League,” Guardiola said.

“What we have to do is play well, create chances to help him score goals and hopefully we can do it. We’re not going to win just for Erling, this is my feeling.

“He has a special quality and in the important games maybe he can solve the problems we have, definitely, but if we don’t play well we’re not going to win games in the Champions League or Premier League.”


Bayern leading the way

10:21 , Matt Verri

Only one side managed to win all six of their group-stage matches, and that was Bayern Munich.

Inter Milan, Barcelona and Viktoria Plzen could do nothing to slow down the Bundesliga side, who scored 18 goals and conceded only twice.

Liverpool could well draw them, and with it a reunion with Sadio Mane.

What they’re all playing for...

10:14 , Matt Verri

June 10, 2023 in Istanbul.

That’s the date all 16 clubs are targeting, with the Ataturk Olympic Stadium hosting this season’s final.

Liverpool will be very keen to return, 18 years on from that miraculous win over AC Milan.

City lead the way

10:07 , Matt Verri

No surprise that Man City are favourites to win the Champions League this season, with Bayern Munich and PSG also well-fancied in the market.

Chelsea and Tottenham both at big prices - the two clubs will be hoping to be in a much better place regarding form and injuries when the last-16 comes around in February.

Latest odds:

Man City: 9/5

Bayern Munich: 5/1

PSG: 13/2

Liverpool: 7/1

Real Madrid: 9/1

Chelsea: 13/1

Tottenham: 14/1

One hour to go!

10:01 , Matt Verri

Not too long now until the last-16 draw gets up and running.

Potential for some really exciting ties - Liverpool vs Bayern Munich, Manchester City vs PSG...

Those clubs will all be hoping that very much does not happen.

Chaos in Group H

09:53 , Matt Verri

Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City will all be looking at their possible opponents and desperately hope that they avoid PSG in this morning’s draw.

The Ligue 1 side have not lost a competitive match since March, with Lionel Messi in particular in sparkling form so far this season.

It still wasn’t enough to top the group though, as Benfica scored five second-half goals to beat Maccabi Haifa 6-1 on the final night of action to pip PSG.

Liverpool vulnerable to tough draw

09:44 , Matt Verri

Liverpool were hammered in their opening match against Napoli and even five straight wins from that point onwards was not enough for them to top the group.

Klopp’s side breezed past Rangers and Ajax, but they could not find the win by a four-goal margin over Napoli at Anfield that they needed.

As a result they’re unseeded in the draw, with only four possible opponents due to there being three English sides seeded. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are waiting...

Liverpool possible last-16 opponents: Bayern Munich, Porto, Real Madrid, Benfica.

Impressive from Chelsea

09:34 , Matt Verri

Graham Potter is going through his first stumbling run as Chelsea manager, but there can be no complaints about his impact on the Blues’ European form.

Taking over after Chelsea lost their opening match to Dinamo Zagreb, Potter then saw the club through tricky clashes against RB Salzburg and AC Milan to be confirmed as group winners with time to spare.

Recent defeats to Brighton and Arsenal have dampened the mood in west London, but there is a long time between now and the last-16 taking place in February.

Chelsea’s possible last-16 opponents: Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, Eintracht Frankfurt, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge


Late drama for Tottenham

09:26 , Matt Verri

Last-minute fury against Sporting, last-gasp jubilation against Marseille.

It was certainly eventful for Tottenham, as they seemingly sealed top spot in Group D with a game to spare but were then denied by VAR.

That left them needing to go to Marseille and get a result and, although they fell behind, they did just that as Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg scored a 95th-minute winner to confirm Spurs as group winners.

Tottenham’s possible last-16 opponents: Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, AC Milan, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge.

Manchester City the favourites

09:19 , Matt Verri

Easing through Group G with 14 points, Man City were pretty comfortable group winners and remain favourites to go all the way this season as they look for their first Champions League trophy.

There were goalless draws away to Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund to seal top spot, and City then came from behind against Sevilla to win the dead-rubber clash.

Can Erling Haaland get them over the line?

Possible opponents: Eintracht Frankfurt, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, AC Milan, RB Leipzig, Club Brugge.

When will the matches be played?

09:12 , Matt Verri

The eight matches will be split over two midweeks.

The first legs are scheduled for February 14/15 and 21/22. The second legs will take place on March 7/8 and 14/15.

How does it work?

09:05 , Matt Verri

As ever, seeded teams will be drawn again an unseeded team in this morning’s last-16 draw.

However, clubs cannot play a side from the same country or one they played in the group-stage.

Unseeded teams

Unseeded: Inter Milan, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Club Brugge, Frankfurt, RB Leipzig, PSG, AC Milan
