Liverpool U19s will host KRC Genk in the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League.

The young Reds reached the first knockout stage of the tournament by topping their group.

Genk, meanwhile, qualified via a 5-1 win over Chelsea in the play-off round between domestic champions and pool-stage runners-up.

Liverpool or Genk will visit AZ Alkmaar or Juventus in the quarter-finals, with the winners of that tie then facing Dynamo Kiev, Sporting CP, FC Midtjylland or SL Benfica in the last four.

The last-16 tie at the Academy is scheduled to take place on March 1 or 2. Confirmed fixture details will follow on Liverpoolfc.com.
