Real Madrid and Juventus are Liverpool's most likely Last 16 opponents

Premier League Champions League

With the draw for the next round taking place on Monday, Liverpool will be eagerly awaiting to see who their next opponent is in Europe after extending their unbeaten streak to nine, with Everton next in their sights to make it ten.

The Portuguese's side ensured their place at the top of Group A with a 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night, reaching their highest points total since their victorious 2007/08 campaign. One thing that is for sure is that it is going to be a tough draw.

Juventus and Basel also completed their passage to the next round, joining Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain and Roma who qualified as group winners, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Basel as runners-up, reports Efe.

UEFA rules restrict the drawing of two teams from the same group or country in the last 16, therefore narrowing the scope of opponents which English teams could draw in the next round.

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool will be a threat to all of their potential Champions League last 16 rivals.

Manchester United (Group A winners): Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid.

Leipzig, who entered the final match day of the group stage with a chance to move forward, lost 2-1 at home to group victor Besiktas.

Now with five English teams in the round of 16 after Christmas, this season looks like the revival of English dominance on the continental stage.

Ancelotti's 151 games at the helm have brought him 86 wins, 31 draws and 34 defeats, and he has won the competition three times, twice with Milan and once with Real Madrid.
