Paris Saint-Germain chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi says that his club will relish the task of taking on Real Madrid in the last-16 stage of the Champions League.

"Then when it will be the moment to play against Barcelona we will start to think of the game against Barcelona".

Former PSG defender Maxwell, now an ambassador for the Ligue 1 club, said on UEFA's website: "It's a good draw, with two good games to play". It's impossible. It's impossible because you have to prepare with the players for a game every three days.

"It's a hard draw for us, but we knew that nothing was going to be easy because there were excellent teams in the draw", Valverde told Barca TV. "We have to go game by game". "Our fans will like it after we were knocked out by Barcelona last season".


"It is a good tie, the factor of playing the first leg away can always help you a little", said Barca director Guillermo Amor. It's a attractive challenge for the club.

The Italian expects Huddersfield to try and hit his team on the break, saying: "We must pay great attention to the counter-attack because they have fast players. I think we're ready for that".

Among the other Premier League clubs, United, City and Liverpool will all be favourites to reach the quarterfinal stage after avoiding Madrid and Bayern, but Spurs must overcome a Juve side who - despite a relatively disappointing campaign so far - have reached two of the last three finals. They're a strong team.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea all progressed from the group stage, making England the first country to have so many sides through to the knockout phase.
