The UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw threw up some tasty fixtures. While there are some entertaining games to watch out for, we'll be focusing on Liverpool. After a few patchy results, Liverpool ensured top spot in the final group game against Spartak Moscow, and in some style as they put seven past them.

There were quite a few top sides who could have been drawn with Liverpool, but they managed to draw Portuguese side FC Porto. Now, we know you're a bit excited considering it's only Porto, a side who have never beaten Liverpool. But then again, it's Liverpool, you can never be too sure.

Porto finished second in group G, with three wins, a draw and two losses. They had a few flaws, and Liverpool will be pretty confident considering the Portuguese side lost at home and away. They also conceded goals in all but one game, so Jurgen Klopp's side will be fairly confident of away goals as well.

The first leg is scheduled to take place at Estadio do Dragao on the 13th of February, so Liverpool will have the home advantage for the return leg on the 6th of March.

Twitter was in a frenzied state after the draw and here are some of the hilarious tweets,

Liverpool reminded the fans how dominant they were when the two sides last faced off at Anfield,

Xabi Alonso was clearly the man who stole the show...

Some fans were cautiously optimistic, and understandably so...

And Lovren, always remember. You're never too safe...
