Paris - Celtic face a tricky Europa League last-32 tie after being drawn Monday against Italy's Inter Milan as Liverpool take on gritty Turkish side Besiktas.
For former European heavyweights Liverpool it will be a return to Istanbul, the scene of their memorable 2005 Champions League final victory over AC Milan in which current skipper Steven Gerrard scored.
However Celtic face a difficult clash against a side who have won Europe's second-tier competition three times.
Liverpool, also three-time winners, who were dumped out of the Champions League by Swiss side Basel last week, won their last meeting with Besiktas 8-0 in the 2007-08 elite European competition.
