UEFA general secretary David Taylor draws Liverpool out during the Champions League Group Stage draw at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.

Liverpool drawn against FC Porto in Champions League last 16

Liverpool’s reward for topping their UEFA Champions League group is a two-legged tie against FC Porto in the last 16.

The Reds came through a group against Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Maribor, finishing unbeaten in Group E across the six matches and ending up three points clear at the top.

It meant the Reds went into Monday’s draw for the last 16—the first time Liverpool have reached that stage since 2009—able to face any of six opponents.

Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk, FC Porto and Real Madrid were the potential ties awaiting Jurgen Klopp and his side.

And it’s a trip to Portugal on the cards in February when European action resumes, as the Reds were paired with Porto.

The first leg will be away from home on Wednesday, February 14, with the decisive second fixture to be played at Anfield on Tuesday, March 6.

Liverpool and Porto have met on four occasions previously in competitive action, in the UEFA Cup in 2001 and the Champions League in 2007.
