While the first leg of the ties is scheduled to be played in February, the return legs will be held in March ahead of the international break.
Following an exhilarating group phase, Napoli, Liverpool, FC Porto, Club Brugge, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Tottenham Hotspur, Eintracht Frankfurt, Chelsea, AC Milan, Real Madrid, RB Leipzig, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund, Benfica and PSG made it to the knockouts.
The UCL 2022-23 Round of 16 draw took place on November 7, 2022, four days after the final match-day of the group stage.
Real Madrid, the 14-time UEFA Champions League winners, will go up against Liverpool in the repeat of the previous edition’s final.
Chelsea, who have signed multiple players, including Enzo Fernandez who became Premier League’s most expensive transfer, will lock horns with German side Borussia Dortmund in the UCL Round of 16 fixture.
Meanwhile, Manchester City, who have been rocked by the latest allegations surrounding the Financial Fair Play breaches, will square off versus RB Leipzig in their quest to win their maiden UCL trophy.
PSG vs Bayern Munich is yet another highlight clash of the round. The two teams faced off in the 2020-21 quarter-final as well where the French powerhouse progressed to the semis on away goals after a 3-3 aggregate scoreline over two legs.
Unfortunately, FC Barcelona, Ajax and Juventus are the three major teams who failed to advance beyond the group stage. They will now ply their trade in the UEFA Europa League 2022-23.
