Nyon: Paris Saint-Germain, last season’s beaten finalists, will face Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League while Liverpool were drawn against RB Leipzig in Monday’s draw.

In 2017, PSG wasted a 4-0 first-leg lead by losing 6-1 at Camp Nou in the second leg when Barcelona scored three goals from the 88th minute on.

However, Neymar has since left Lionel Messis side in Spain and switched to PSG, which also did not have Kylian Mbapp back then.

Barcelona will host the first leg this time because it was unseeded in Mondays draw after failing to win its group.

Bayern Munich, who beat PSG in the 2020 final, play Lazio in the knockout phase while 2012 winners Chelsea have a tough task against Atletico Madrid.

Meanwhile, Manchester City will face Borussia Monchengladbach, with Juventus taking on Porto.
Borussia Dortmund who recently sacked Lucien Favre, will face Sevilla and Atalanta take on Real Madrid.
