The draw for the Champions League round-of-16 has been made, and there's one clash that stands out as Neymar's PSG take on champions Real Madrid. But there are plenty more storylines to follow. Here's what to watch for.
Real Madrid vs. PSG

Liverpool's 1-1 draw with Everton extended their unbeaten run to 10 matches, winning seven of them and being in the lead until late on in the other three.
