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.

Shakhtar Donetsk will face AS Roma, while defending champions, Real Madrid booked a titillating face-off with Neymar's Paris Saint Germain.

"I think this type of game is a good chance for every player to show the right value".

The Spanish champions' director of institutional relations, Emilio Butragueno, told beIN Sports: "It could have been the final, for the power of the two clubs, but that happens in a draw - luck plays a role".

And though fans were hoping for the latter, Xabi Alonso matched Chelsea against the former.

The two clubs were paired in the group stage two seasons ago, when Rafa Benitez's Madrid were outplayed for spells in both games but drew 0-0 away and won 1-0 at home. On our day we can beat BarcelonaBarcelona are top of La Liga and undefeated after 15 matches. It's a attractive challenge for the club. I like to win and when we lose, I'm not happy.

We've seen some of the great displays the team has put in so far this season. Hopefully we arrive with a full squad, and have the fortune that you always need in this sort of tie.

"Tactically, they're very good and also very physical". "We are very optimistic, we are confident and want to keep going in this competition".

English Premier League leaders Manchester City play Basel, who have had some fine results against English sides in recent years, while five-time winners and current Bundesliga table toppers Bayern Munich drew Turkish giants Besiktas.
