Barcelona will face Paris St Germain and former title holder Bayern Munich is up against Italy's Lazio in the last 16 of the Champions League after UEFA's draw was held on Monday.

The clash of Lionel Messi and Barca with last year's runners-up PSG is a repeat of their remarkable meeting at the same stage in 2017 when Barca overcame a 4-0 first leg loss to beat the French club 6-1 in Spain.

Bayern will start as favourites in its tie but will be wary of Simone Inzaghi's Lazio team which has reached this stage for the first time in 20 years.



“Lazio are an uncomfortable opponent, you saw that in the group,” said Bayern sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. “It is always uncomfortable against Italian teams.”

Premier League champion Liverpool will play last year's semi-finalist RB Leipzig creating a match-up between Germany's most highly rated young coach Julian Nagelsmann of Leipzig with Liverpool's Juergen Klopp, the country's number one coach.

Liverpool is unbeaten in its last ten matches against German teams in all European competitions, a run going back to 2002.
