Liverpool have drawn their Champions League last 16 first leg tie – their first draw in 12 Champions League outings.

They had the chances to score but for all their attacking talent, lacked some real bite up front this evening. But they do take a clean sheet to the Allianz Arena in three weeks time, where away goals could be crucial to see them through.
