'Panic', 'Fans going crazy' - Liverpool fans react to Champions League play-off draw

As for Brendan Rodgers' Celtic side, they will be looking to make the group stage yet again as they will not meet the likes of Olympiakos, FC Copenhangen, APOEL and Maribor.

The first leg will be on August 15, before Hoffenheim travel to Anfield on August 23.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim were the surprise package in last season's Bundesliga, finishing fourth spearheaded by former Leicester City striker Andrej Kramaric.

Last season saw Liverpool finish in the Premier League's top four for only the second time in eight seasons. Napoli reached the last-16 of last season's Champions League and were knocked out by eventual winners Real Madrid.

Hoffenheim finished the previous season in fourth place on the German top flight table - just two points behind Borussia Dortmund - in what was 30-year-old coach Julian Nagelsmann's first campaign in charge of the senior team.

Hoffenheim will definitely be a tough test for Klopp's men, and one of the tougher draws they could have managed at this stage of the competition but the reds will no doubt be favourites.

I also write him messages". "We travelled a lot; OK, just to Munich and back, Munich and back, but we also had a lot of sessions to do", continued Klopp, always quick with a joke.
