This is where the UEFA Champions League gets good. The knockout rounds of the 2022/23 competition featuring the cream of the crop kick off with the Round of 16 beginning in February.
The draw for the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League round 16 is completed and it promises to not disappoint football fans thanks to exciting fixtures such as PSG vs Bayern and the rematch of the 2022 final of Liverpool vs Real Madrid.
The group winners from the group stage cannot be drawn against each other in the round of 16. After the conclusion of the group stage last week, the group winners were Bayern Munich, Benfica, Chelsea, Manchester City, Napoli, Porto, Real Madrid and Tottenham while the runners-up were Club Bruges, Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht Frankfurt, Inter, RB Leipzig, Liverpool, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Fixtures:
- Leipzig vs Man City
- Club Brugge vs Benfica
- Liverpool vs Real Madrid
- Milan vs Tottenham
- Eintracht vs Napoli
- Dortmund vs Chelsea
- Bayern vs PSG
- Inter vs FC Porto
All eyes were on PSG’s Round of 16 fate as they face a daunting two-legged affair against Bayern Munich. They will be hoping to avoid a repeat of last season when their bid for their first Champions League trophy ended at the Round of 16 stage after a difficult draw, losing out to eventual champions Real Madrid.
