The possible knockout stage opponents for Champions League holders Liverpool have been revealed after the conclusion of the group stage.

Matches over the eight groups have been concluded on Wednesday night in the Champions League and 16 teams have emerged from 32 teams for the next stage (round of 16).

Champions League holders Liverpool are one of the 16 teams in the knockout stage of the competition this season after the Reds finished as the top team in Group E ahead of Napoli, Red Bull Salzburg, and Genk.

Liverpool sealed their place in the next round with the 2-0 away win over Austrian Bundesliga champions Red Bull Salzburg courtesy the goals Naby Keita and star forward Mohamed Salah in the second half.

The reigning European champions needed just one point to be assured of a last 16 spot before the Red Bull Salzburg game.

Liverpool have the possibility of meeting five teams in the round of 16.

The Reds can meet the likes of immediate past champions Real Madrid, debutants Atalanta, Spanish La Liga side Atletico Madrid, German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund and French Ligue 1 club Lyon in the last 16 stage of the Champions League.

Liverpool won the Champions League title last season via the 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in their final clash.
