Lfc rumour
Friday's draw means Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will return to his native Germany, while striker Roberto Firmino will face his former club.
Reflecting on the draw, Klopp told the club's website: "Very interesting. Actually, it was exactly what I expected when I had a look - if there's a choice we always seem to take the German team! Sorry!
"It was clear from the first moment when we knew who we could face that there would be no easy game. It's Hoffenheim and that's for sure not an easy game.
"But we should always not forget what they thought in the moment they saw the draw - it's not the best thing they could get. I'm completely fine with it, happy to know and now we can start preparing.

22 and 23.
