COURTESY

"That's the team of the hour, the league leaders in England, they are playing really good football, very physical, really stepping it up", Salihamidzic said after the last-16 draw in Nyon.

Bayern Munich, meanwhile, have shown form in Europe, winning Group E, despite their lack of consistency in the Bundesliga, where they are third and trail Dortmund by nine points.

Also, three-time defending champion Real Madrid will first play at Ajax, while Barcelona was drawn with Lyon.

Liverpool were drawn against Bayern Munich in another matchup that is certain to provide plenty of entertainment.

"Along with Liverpool this is certainly the most exciting front three and the most hard to play against because they combine this with real quality and the finishing is good", he said.

"A tough cookie, but that's something to look forward to as a player".

Hubbleshubbles opined: "Unless Liverpool pull a Liverpool, I literally don't see us standing any kind of chance". And that this Bayern team is significantly weaker than previous editions.

"It's always hard to play Manchester United", said PSG boss Thomas Tuchel.

Danny Mills thinks Tottenham's Champions League last-16 tie against Borussia Dortmund is "difficult but winnable".

Schalke are down in 13th place, and came through Group D as runners-up. "German clubs are always very risky". As such, they list Bayern games played at Football Arena Munich. They lost their first two games in the competition, but recovered well to finish second behind Barcelona in their group.

The first legs will be played from February 12-20, with the second legs scheduled between March 5-13.

DORTMUND, GERMANY - MARCH 10: Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund (11) celebrates with team mates as he scores their third goal during the UEFA Europa League Round of 16 first leg match between Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur at Signal Iduna Park on March 10, 2016 in Dortmund, Germany.
