Champions League holders Liverpool will face off against Atletico Madrid in the last 16.
The Reds will return to the scene of their sixth European triumph, the Wanda Metropolitano, as they aim to become the first English side to defend their crown in the modern era.
Should Liverpool sign Gerard Deulofeu?
Jurgen Klopp’s main target for the season may come domestically, though, as he aims to guide the club to their first league title since 1990.
They’re currently 10 points clear of second-placed Leicester and a further four points ahead of champions Manchester City.
Liverpool also remain in contention in the Carabao Cup and will compete in the Club World Cup and the FA Cup.
It comes as little surprise that Klopp has looked to bolster his squad with the signing of RB Salzburg star Takumi Minamino in January.
Reds fans have been excited at the prospect of him taking on Atletico, here’s how some of them reacted:
