UEFA Champions League last 16 draw made in Switzerland

UEFA Champions League last 16 draw made in Switzerland”

Irrespective of their differing domestic seasons to date, facing the Reds holds no fear for experienced Germany goalkeeper Neuer.

Liverpool defeated Manchester United 3-1 to return to the top of the Premier League on Sunday and Rush believes last year's finalists are a different proposition.

"They can counter quickly and they're unsafe in front of goal, but they're also vulnerable, as we've seen, and they'll be up against a good Bayern attack".

"It'll be a great game both at Liverpool and also at home at the Allianz Arena". Borussia Dortmund has climbed to the top of the Bundesliga and is still unbeaten after 15 games, including wins over rivals Schalke and Bayern Munich.

UEFA Champions League last 16 draw made in Switzerland

I predicted Barcelona would win at the start of the season and I'm sticking with my guns, as no side really look spectacular in the Champions League so far. The chances are 50-50.

Bayern, who finished two points clear of Ajax in the group stage, reached the semi-finals last year and have progressed past the last 16 in each of the last seven years.

"They're the team of the hour".

The Dutchman, who is leaving Bayern at the end of the season, said: "It's an epic match". The Spaniard will have learned his lessons from past failures at the hands of Monaco and Liverpool and his team will now be more adept at tackling two-legged ties.
