Unfortunately that's all we've got time for tonight, after a pulsating night of European football! We shall be back next week for the next round of last-16 clashes. 

The big game was in Madrid and it certainly lived up to many people's expectations, Madrid dominated in the early proceedings but PSG managed to take the lead through Rabiot but Ronaldo equalised from the spot. The second period was back and forth but it was Ronaldo again who got them in the lead before Marcelo rounded off the win. 

We will start in Portugal and what a night it has been for Klopp and Liverpool. The Reds put in a stellar performance and Porto certainly didn't look the side that the run had them out to be, the night belongs to Mane with his hat-trick with others from Salah and Firmino.

21:24. Another quick fire sub for Liverpool as Ings comes on for Firmino. 

21:23. Berchiche's cross seems certain to be poked home at the far post by Dani Alves, but the ball’s just this much too far ahead of his outstretched foot.

19:52. Madrid have started brightly with Ronaldo firing a volley across goal and Marquinhos almost turning it home. 

19:49. Madrid have a early penalty call as Kroos goes down but waved away. 

19:45. Underway! 

Five minutes to kick-off in both matches! 

Liverpool certainly don't have an easy test with Porto having remained unbeaten in their last 24 matches in all competitions, but I feel the Liverpool trio could prove enough to take them over the line. 2-1 Liverpool. 

Predictions for the clashes tonight then? Obviously the stand out is the battle in the Spanish capital. The holders against one of the firm favourites it is almost too difficult to call, but I am feeling that Madrid will edge it just about with a 2-1 win. 

Van Dijk will make his first Champions League appearance for The Reds tonight. 

BIG NEWS: ?Klopp makes three changes from the win over Southampton with; Lovren, Milner and Henderson coming in for Matip, Oxlade-Chamberlain and the suspended Can. 

Zidane makes three changes from the weekend with Nacho coming in for the suspended Carvajal. 

Unai Emery makes two changes for the clash at the Bernabeu with Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti coming back in. 

FC Porto starting XI vs Liverpool: Jose Sa, Ricardo, Reyes, Marcano, Alex Telles, Herrera, Sergio Oliveira, Otavio, Brahimi, Marega. 

Liverpool starting XI vs FC Porto: Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Milner, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Real Madrid starting XI vs Paris Saint Germain: Navas, Varane, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo.

Paris Saint Germain starting XI vs Real Madrid: Areola, Alves, Marquinhos, Kimpembe, Berchiche, Verratti, Lo Celso, Rabiot, Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar.

19:00 - Team news is in for both tonight's clashes! 

We'll do well to have a better night of action than yesterday evening. Manchester City battered Basel 4-0 in Switzerland to keep up their season of dominance, whilst Totenham came from two goals down away in Turin to secure a priceless away goal draw against Juventus.

Roberto Firmino is one to watch for, only Cristiano Ronaldo scored more in the group stages (9) than the Brazilian (6), whilst Firmino also picked up three assists.

Liverpool don't have many injury concerns tonight but will be without the suspended Emre Can, whilst Joe Gomez is a doubt with a knee injury. Porto top scorer Vincent Aboubakar might miss out with a muscle problem, although the medical staff do seem to be confident he'll at least the bench.

Porto, top of the Portugese league, did well to come through the 'Group of Death', finishing ahead of last year's semi-finalists AS Monaco and much fancied RB Leipzig.

Speaking of dangerous attacking outlets, Liverpool begin their knockout campaign away to Porto tonight. The Reds bagged 23 goals in the group stage, bettered only by PSG, topping their group ahead of Sevilla and Spartak Moscow.

Neymar vs Cristiano Ronaldo is a mouth-watering attacking battle that will have some licking their lips tonight, those two spearheading two of Europe's most dangerous attacks. 

PSG saw off Bayern Munich to finish top of their group, whilst Real Madrid out-did Borussia Dortmund but couldn't get the better of Tottenham Hotspur as they came second.

Tonight's headline game comes from the Bernabeu as Real Madrid host Paris Saint-Germain in the glamour tie of the whole round. After PSG topped their group they expected to be given a comfortable last 16 tie, only to be drawn against current holders and back-to-back winners in Madrid.

Good evening to one and all, welcome to our live coverage of tonight's Champions League last 16 fixtures. We're Oliver Emmerson and Danial Kennedy and we'll be taking you through tonight's action in Spain and Portugal respectively, with kick-off in those matches set for 19:45 UK time.
