How can I watch the 2022/23 Champions League last 16 draw?
So, the excitement of the group stage is over. Having witnessed some European powers breeze through their groups and others progress by the skin of their teeth, we can now look forward to the thrill and the ‘there’s nothing quite like it’-feeling of Champions League knockout football.
Here’s all you need to know about the Champions League round of 16.
The draw for the first round of this campaign’s Champions League knockout phase will take place on Monday 7 November at 11:00 (GMT).

The eight group winners and the eight second-placed sides will feature in the Champions League round of 16 stage.
All four English teams that entered the competition have made it through to the knockout phase, with Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City joining Napoli, Porto, Bayern Munich, Benfica and reigning champions Real Madrid as the eight seeded sides.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are joined by Club Brugge, Inter, Eintracht Frankfurt, Milan, RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain as the unseeded sides.
The table-toppers and runners-up will be drawn against each other – apart from those that competed in the same group and those from the same Associations.
We’ll be able to see these European heavyweights lock horns after the turn of the year, with the first legs set to be played over the 14 and 15 February, and the second legs over the 21 and 22.
We’ve got to get through a World Cup first, though.

Khvicha Kvaratskhelia: ‘My dream is to win the Champions League with Real Madrid’
Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who we rank among the strong competitors for Ballon d’Or next year, has stood up on his greatest dream.
In a meeting with Corriere dello Sport, Kvaratskhelia: “My biggest dream? To win the Champions League. With who? With Real Madrid.
“Since I was a kid, I was a Real Madrid fan. Always watched their games,” the winger added in the interview just before joining Napoli for just €10m from Dinamo Batumi.
The Georgian technician has registered as many as 8 goals and 10 assists in just 17 games for the Neapolitans this season.
It’s why many top clubs seem to have their sights set on the Georgian international. But the man of the moment only dreams of Real Madrid.
