Rush backs German Klopp to see off Bayern

In the last couple of years they have dominated the German league in the best period of German football.

When are the last 16 matches?

Tottenham will play Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City, as the only group winners among the four, have been drawn against Schalke.

Atletico Madrid will play Juventus in what promises to be a fascinating tie.

Holders Real Madrid were paired with Ajax in Monday's draw in Nyon as the Spaniards attempt to lift the trophy for the fifth time in six seasons, while Lionel Messi and Barcelona will play Lyon.

Schalke are down in 13th place, and came through Group D as runners-up.

They added that Juventus, PSG, Manchester City and Barcelona will make it to the semi finals and the finals will be played by Pep Guardiola's men and Ernesto Valverde's side.


On whether the fact Bayern have a winter break could influence the tie...

Bayern Munich and Liverpool will square off in the final pick.

The first leg will take place on the 12th, 13th, 19th or 20th of February with the return leg coming on the 5th, 6th, 12th or 13th of March.

Salihamidzic said, quoted by UEFA.com: "Liverpool are the hottest team right now and top of the Premier League table". Will Jose Mourinho's Manchester United face FC Barcelona, or Liverpool get a replay of last season's final against Real Madrid?

Hubbleshubbles opined: "Unless Liverpool pull a Liverpool, I literally don't see us standing any kind of chance".

The draw included nine former champions with a combined 40 of the 63 Champions League or European Cup titles since the competition began in 1955.

"Attractive football, a high tempo - they will be very hard to play against, especially with the second leg in Dortmund, with their fans and the yellow wall, the backing that the crowd gives them there. We are at home for the first leg so we have to take advantage of that".
