In a rematch of last season’s final, Liverpool will be on a mission to avenge the painful loss to Real Madrid when they face off in the Champions League last 16.
The Reds were denied the opportunity to win a seventh European title when they lost 0-1 to the Los Blancos in May – and now they will meet again in the knockout stage. The draw was announced on Monday in Switzerland.
In other news, Manchester City will continue their battle with German side RB Leipzig, while Antonio Conte will take his side to Italy to face AC Milan.
For the first time in their history, Chelsea will face Borussia Dortmund.
However, after being drawn together in the knockout round, one of Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich will not advance to the quarter-finals. Who will be in the quarter-finals, and who will not? It is a great opportunity for soccer bet Ghana to predict who sails through.
Liverpool vs. Real Madrid
It is the fixture that most Liverpool fans did not want. Liverpool will face Real Madrid in a replay of last season’s final after a series of disappointments against Carlo Ancelotti’s side. Last time out, Mo Salah was made to chew his words after publicly saying Liverpool were going for revenge in the UCL finals in May.
If history is anything to go by, expect a close battle. The English side is not having the best season domestically, but as history would have it, they are a different animal in Europe. However, the Los Blancos have perfected the art of winning big matches. It is in their DNA, and they have the experience of hurting Liverpool again. Place a bet with Betway if you feel Liverpool can stage a revenge or Madrid to come out on top.
Bayern Munich vs. PSG
PSG, who finished second in Group H, will face the Bavarians, who dominated Group C by winning all six of their group matches. Nonetheless, it will be a meeting of heavyweights as PSG, boasting Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe, face off against an ever-green Bayern side.
The Champions League remains elusive for the Parisians, and the draw against the German champions presents the toughest test they could have asked for. It could be their year, but it could be Bayern’s too.
Borussia Dortmund vs. Chelsea
This is where the games become quite competitive. Dortmund, who finished second in Group G, will play Chelsea, who won Group E. Once again, two evenly-matched teams should produce two entertaining games.
AC Milan vs. Tottenham
The Italian champions finished second in Group B and are back where they belong. In the big stage with the big boys. Tottenham, on the other hand, are strong opponents managed by former Italy manager Antonio Conte. AC Milan have tasted European glory before, but Spurs have always fallen short. Milan and London await.
RB Leipzig vs. Manchester City
Man City are seeking their first Champions League title. It can be argued that they got a favourable draw in RB Leipzig. They topped Group D, and will be heavy favourites to advance. Guardiola’s men are also the bookmakers’ favourites to conquer Europe this time.
