Liverpool struggled enough to hold on to the 2-0 lead it had built in Milan, but in the end, despite losing 1-0 at Anfield, they qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals.
The squad led by Jürgen Klopp, in which the Colombian Luis Díaz plays, seeks its seventh title in the European Cup, after being crowned in 1977, 1978, 1981, 1984, 2005 and 2019.

Who will be Liverpool’s rival in the quarter-finals? The rival is not yet known. Uefa only raffled until this phase of the tournament and thus, the English will have to wait for the other six classified at that stage to be known. In addition to the ‘Reds’, Bayern Munich also reached the quarterfinals, which on Tuesday mercilessly thrashed Austria’s Salzburg (7-1).
The date of the draw for the final stages of the Champions League
The draw for the quarterfinals will take place on March 18 at the House of European Football, in Nyon (Switzerland), at 12 noon, local time (6 am in Colombia).
That day the complete path to the final will be known, which will take place on May 28 at the Stade de France, in Saint-Denis (France). It should be remembered that the final match was going to be played in Saint Petersburg (Russia), but Uefa changed the venue due to the invasion of Ukraine.
The draw for the quarterfinals, unlike what happened in the round of 16, does not have any limitations, that is, the match can be between any of the eight classified teams. In the round of 16, duels between clubs from the same country are not allowed, nor between teams that have faced each other in the group stage.
