- Crosses. The draw, live
Guardiola returning to Santiago Bernabéu and Jürgen Klopp threatening the Metropolitan in a double confrontation against the English. Two tremendous qualifiers that will mark the knockout stages of the Champions League, drawn on Monday morning in Nyon . More affordable will have their pass to the quarters Barcelona , which will be measured at Naples , and Valencia , which will do so, completing another double showdown, this one against the Italians, to Atalanta .
Both Real Madrid and Atlético , who were second in their groups, will play the first leg in their stadiums. So, waiting to know the final calendars, Madrid will host two high-flying games on the return of the competition in February. Guardiola has not played for Santiago Bernabéu since the defeat he suffered in the first leg of the 2014 semifinals (1-0). On the other hand, the last time Liverpool and Atlético faces met were in the semifinals of the 2010 Europa League, when the rojiblancos, led by Quique Sánchez Flores, agreed to the final that won the Fulham.
The situation presented to Barcelona, facing Naples, which was until recently of Ancelotti and now of Gattuso, seems much more affordable. With a Civil War environment between the dressing room and the president, Aurelio de Laurentiis , it does not seem that he can offer much resistance, although seeing the last Barça precedents in this competition it is not convenient to attend to relaxation.
For its part, Valencia, which also finished as the first group, will face Atalanta, a very offensive but inexperienced team in this competition. Muriel (former Sevilla), Papu Gómez or Duván Zapata form a forward with a lot of goal.
The rest of the qualifiers are Dortmund-Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea-Bayern, Lyon-Juventus and Tottenham-Leipzig .
