Nyon - Last season's UEFA Champions League runners-up Borussia Dortmund face a tough test at the last 16 stage in the form of FC Zenit.

The St. Petersburg based outfit qualified from Group G as runners-up behind Club Atlético de Madrid and Dortmund will have to travel to the Northern Russian city in the midst of winter.

bundesliga.com summarises the reaction from the Signal Iduna Park...

Hans-Joachim Watzke (CEO): "Zenit have got a high-quality squad and are joint top of the Russian league at the moment. We qualified from perhaps the toughest group as winners with twelve points, though. Staying in the Champions League until this stage was our aim and we've met that. We'd have been pleased with any opponent at this stage to be honest."

Michael Zorc (Sporting Director): "Zenit have developed into one of the top Russian teams over the last few years and posses high-quality stars like Hulk and Axel Witsel. It's similar to our match-up against Shakhtar Donetsk at this stage last year because the Russian league restarts on 8 March. We're obviously hoping for the weather conditions to be fairly normal by that stage."

Jürgen Klopp (Head coach): "I've never been to Russia before and I'm really looking forward to the games. We'll prepare very well. Everyone at this stage is a good side and I certainly don't want to judge Zenit - we've got two months to go into detail."

Sebastian Kehl: "It certainly could have been a worse draw for us. The conditions will be tough there, though. I think we've got a really good chance of getting to the next round. I'd say it's a minor advantage to be playing away first - and we're just really looking forward to it."

Kevin Großkreutz: "I really wanted to play AC Milan! Zenit's a really interesting draw, though. They've got Hulk - a really strong opponent and we'll have to take the game by the scruff of the neck if we want to qualify. They're a first-class side, regardless of how their group stage went"
