Who are LFC's potential Champions League knockout opponents

After a tricky group stage that saw an away defeat to Napoli in our second game, a draw at home to the Italian's on match day four, Liverpool were left with it all to do tonight.

Thankfully, the real Reds turned up and put a young, confident Red Bull Salzburg side to the sword and progressed as group winners.

So the question now is who do we play in the first knockout round of competition after finishing up as group leaders.

The simple answer is that the team Liverpool could definitely come up against is the team we lost to in the final 2 years ago, Real Madrid.

Other than that, it's a whose who of different types of teams: Shakhtar Donetsk, Atalanta, Atletico Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund , Inter Milan, RB Leipzig, Zenit, Lyon, Valencia, Ajax.

As you can see, it isn't exactly a given that finishing top of our group is an easy passage into the quarter-finals.
