Liverpool advanced to the last 16 of the Champions League as Group D winners after winning four, drawing one and losing one of their opening six fixtures.
The Reds are hopeful of reaching the final for the third time in four seasons but were knocked out at this stage by Atletico Madrid last season.
They face last season’s semi-finalists, RB Leipzig, in the round-of-16. Julian Nagelsmann’s side are second in Bundesliga and battered Manchester United to the Group H runners-up spot behind the group leader, Paris Saint-Germain.
The German club beat both PSG and United at the Red Bull Arena in the group stages, but they will host Liverpool at the Puskas Arena, Budapest, on Tuesday at 9:00pm (WAT).
