Ian Rush gives his reaction. He seems excited.

It’s been a fantastic week for Liverpool. Two really big games and we came out top in both games. They’re consistent now, they’ve got a settled side now. They’ve got a squad now capable of doing really, really well. There’s some great names in the Champions League. At this stage it doesn’t matter who you get, it’s going to be a difficult game. Our first game’s at home, we’ve got to try to take advantage. The atmosphere’s going to be incredible at Anfield, I just hope that can help us as well.

11.24am GMT

Schalke v Manchester City
Atlético Madrid v Juventus
Manchester United v Paris St-Germain
Tottenham v Borussia Dortmund
Lyon v Barcelona
Roma v Porto
Ajax v Real Madrid
Liverpool v Bayern Munich

11.23am GMT

So there were four English teams and three Spanish teams, but no England v Spain round of 16 ties. There were also three German teams, and there will be three England v Germany ties. What are the odds*?

* You don’t actually have to answer that.

11.21am GMT

And that concludes today’s Champions League draw. Short and very sweet, I’m sure you’ll agree.

11.19am GMT

Which leaves Liverpool left in a like-it-or-lump-it match-up with Bayern Munich!

11.18am GMT

Ajax can now only play Real Madrid, so that’s what’s going to happen.

11.18am GMT

Roma will play Porto! That’s an excellent draw for both teams.

11.17am GMT

Next up it’s Lyon v Barcelona! Lyon have never beaten Barcelona, in six attempts.

11.17am GMT

Now it’s Tottenham’s turn, and they will play Borussia Dortmund! They’ve played each other four times previously, with each side winning two of those games.

11.15am GMT

Manchester United are picked next. Of the available group winners, they get Paris St-Germain! The clubs have never met in European competition, so this is history we’re watching right here!

11.14am GMT

Atlético Madrid are the second runners-up to be drawn. They will play Juventus. Juve have won four of their seven previous meetings.

11.13am GMT

Schalke are out of the hat first (they’re picking runners-up first, you see). And they will play Manchester City!

11.12am GMT

The draw is happening!

11.12am GMT

One thing I didn’t mention: After the draw, Uefa will determine which matches are played on Tuesday, which on Wednesday, and which will be played in which week, based on whatever they think is important.

11.10am GMT

Now a brief pause while the regulations are read out. You know the regulations, because I quoted the way down at the bottom of this page, so you’re missing nothing.

11.09am GMT

Then García is asked what brought about Liverpool’s fantastic half-timely turnaround in 2005. “I cannot tell you the whole truth,” he says. These interviews are going excellently.

11.08am GMT

Georges is asked who she thinks will win. “I wouldn’t pick anyone special,” she says.

11.08am GMT

Bayern Munich’s Laura Georges and the former Liverpool ace Luis García are introduced as today’s special guests and ball-pluckers.

11.06am GMT

After a lot of chat about which teams deserve particular commendation for their group-stage achievements, Marchatti pauses and says: “Ladies and gentlemen, we are getting closer to the draw.” This is not entirely encouraging.

11.05am GMT

The draw will be led by Giorgio Marchetti, Uefa’s deputy general secretary and drawmaster in chief, who has just taken the stage.

11.03am GMT

We start with a rousing and dramatically-soundtracked group stage highlights package.

11.02am GMT

The view from the hall. It’s probably better on TV:

It’s almost time!
How are you feeling? #UCL #UCLdraw pic.twitter.com/juP7dKdgzC

11.01am GMT

Lots of empty seats in the hall still, but then I suppose there are only 16 teams involved. Anyway, action!

10.59am GMT

The draw starts in 90 seconds!

10.57am GMT

Schalke are the bookies’ outsiders for the competition, which given that they are the only team that will absolutely certainly get a nightmare draw is probably understandable. Manchester City are the favourites, with three-time defending champions Real Madrid seventh. Here’s the chaps from WhoScored predicting how every team will do:

Over on Uefa, they have managed to ask dozens of famous players at Champions League clubs about the draw, and elicited almost identical responses from all of them. Thus Mario Gotze says:

Regardless of which opponent you get in the Champions League last 16, it will be tense and very, very tough.

Whoever we’re drawn against, we’re going to have to play very well.

You come up against good opposition in every game so we’ll see who we get.

10.14am GMT

Here’s an English-team can-get-ometer, just so everybody knows where they stand:

Manchester City
Can’t play: Lyon, Liverpool, Manchester Utd, Tottenham
Can play: Ajax, Atlético Madrid, Roma, Schalke

9.58am GMT

Today we will mainly be thinking about Article 18 of the 2018-19 Champions League regulations, in which paragraph one sets out the basic rules for this draw as follows:

18.01 The round of 16 pairings are determined by means of a draw in accordance with the following principles:

a. Clubs from the same association cannot be drawn against each other.

18.02 The eight winners of the round of 16 contest the quarter-finals. The quarter-final pairings are determined by means of a draw.

The countdown is on!! ⏳

How are you feeling ahead of the #UCLdraw?

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Guardian - man, 17/12/2018 - 09:29

Southampton have had an instant new-manager bounce while Huddersfield and Fulham look as if they must spend

Maurizio Sarri fell short of accusing his players of complacency, but admitted something strange keeps happening when his Chelsea team appear to be in complete control of matches. At Wolves recently their early lead was overhauled and they were beaten. They had more leeway at Brighton with a two-goal cushion established but still ended a contest, in which they had been utterly dominant, heaving to repel Albion’s late flurry of attacks. Every long ball suddenly seemed a threat, every set piece a route to parity. It ensured what had been an impressive display felt rather undermined at the death. “We are a danger to ourselves,” admitted the Italian. It is affecting some more than others in their ranks, with Marcos Alonso’s early-season composure having evaporated of late. He rather personifies this team’s current fragility in periods within games. They escaped real damage at Brighton. “But suddenly the level of application and attention lowered,” added Sarri. That, in truth, does sound like complacency at work. Dominic Fifield
