CL: Italians await last 16 draw

Juventus could be drawn Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16 later, while holders Liverpool possibly await Napoli or Atalanta.

The Champions League draw for the Round of 16 takes place at 11:00 GMT.

Juve qualified as group winners, so they will meet one of the teams who finished second.

That gives them the possibility of already facing Madrid in next phase as Zinedine Zidane’s side ran out runners-up to Paris Saint-Germain in their group.

The Old Lady have played Los Blancos 21 times, winning nine and losing 10 of their meetings.

The Bianconeri could also draw Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Lyonnais and Tottenham Hotspur in the last 16.

Atalanta have passed the first hurdle on their first attempt but are faced with a challenge against a team with great experience in the next round.

The Dea are new to this phase and haven’t played any of their possible opponents previously but could be paired up with former winners Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Liverpool, who played Napoli in the group stage, might also be visiting Bergamo next year.

Napoli went through with a 4-0 win against Racing Genk in their final group game and could rematch the Reds.

They have four champions from their respective Leagues in their side of the draw, with Manchester City as well as Bayern and Barca.
