Attack on Paris
Liverpool have been drawn with Paris Saint-Germain in the First Knockout Round of this season's Champions League.
The French powerhouse will travel to Anfield for the first leg of the game on the 17th of February, followed by the second leg at Parc des Princes on the 8th of March.
Last season, Liverpool passed through this exact stage at the expense of Galatasaray, but will have to face up against tougher opponents now in the form of PSG, who have assembled arguably one of the best squads in the world.
The Paris club breezed through the group stages, topping Group E with 5 wins and 1 draw, taking a total of 16 points. Like Liverpool, they dropped out at the Quarter Final of the Champions League the previous year, losing 3-1 on aggregate to Barcelona.
PSG, despite frequently being unable to get far in the Champions League, have been unbeatable in their native France, winning the Ligue 1 title three years in a row, and look certain to extend the run to four. They are currently top of the table, 8 points clear of 2nd-placed Toulouse.
And it is easy to see why, with the likes of Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani within the team.
However, the real danger man that Liverpool will have to look out for is the club's current vice-captain, the mighty striker known as Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

At 34, the Swede is still playing his heart out for PSG, and has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season.
He has been especially prolific in Europe, with 6 goals in 6 appearances, and Liverpool will definitely have to keep him quiet if they want to have any chance of going through to the Quarter Final.
The Reds impressed quite a bit themselves in the group stage, but ultimately conceded 6 goals to an energetic Real Madrid side in the last game of Group H, causing them to finish in 2nd place with 13 points.

Although Liverpool looks to have a poorer squad on paper compared to their First Round opponents, they should not be underestimated.
They won the Premier League title by a clear 10 points in 2014/15 and have continued their form, winning 17 and only losing 2 of their 24 league games so far.
Some Liverpool players also took to Twitter to give their reactions on the First Round draw.
"Just saw that we're against PSG for 1st Round.... excited!" Raheem Sterling tweeted on his account, @sterling7. "Cant wait to show what we can do vs PSG. Very good team, but we are just as good. We can do this!" He added in a second tweet later.
Mario Balotelli, on the other hand, was less expressive, tweeting under his handle @FinallyMario. "PSG!! Lets gooo!!!"
Regardless, this fixture between the champions of England and France promises to be an interesting match-up.
