Ronaldo vs Neymar as Real draw PSG in CL

Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has said that his club will relish the task of taking on Real Madrid in the last-16 stage of the Champions League.

Tottenham have been handed a tricky tie against last season's runners-up Juventus.

Bayern MUnich will play Beşiktaş of Turkey.

"It's a hard draw for us but we knew that nothing was going to be easy because there were very good teams in the draw", Valverde said to Barça TV.

Liverpool were drawn to play Porto of Portugal.

And though fans were hoping for the latter, Xabi Alonso matched Chelsea against the former.

The Blues have won the Premier League in two of the last three seasons.

He added: "They're a strong team". In this case we must be ready to face Barcelona.

"Then when it will be the moment to play against Barcelona we will start to think of the game against Barcelona". It's a lovely challenge for the club. We will see how we arrive at the games. I like to win and when we lose, I'm not happy.

English champions Chelsea have also suffered for having to settle for second place in their group behind Roma, with a match-up with Ernesto Valverde's revitalised Barcelona representing a significant hurdle if they are to progress. "We'll go into it with optimism, confidence and a huge desire to get through".

"The Italian, who conceded that the league title was out of reach after the West Ham defeat, challenged his players to put things right at Huddersfield".
