Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery is upbeat over his side's chances of getting past Real Madrid and advancing to the Champions League quarterfinals.
Despite topping Group B, the runaway Ligue 1 leader was dealt perhaps the toughest possible hand in drawing the reigning champion.
PSG was dumped out in the round of 16 by Barcelona last term as its 4-0 first leg advantage was spectacularly overturned in a 6-5 aggregate defeat.
Emery is undaunted by a similar challenge this time around.
"I think it is a good draw. I believe we can compete with Real Madrid," Emery told UEFA.com.
"To make something great in the UEFA Champions League, you need to beat the best teams. The last 16 is a good moment to play such teams.
"We will need to show our character, our tactical skills and our talent. Talent is very important."
