Birmingham City will enjoy home advantage in the quarter finals of this year's FA Cup and so will Aston Villa - if they can get there.
In today's draw, Blues were rewarded for yesterday's 1-0 win at Stoke with a visit from European Champions Liverpool.
The sides' last FA Cup clash was in 2002, with Liverpool winning 3-0. Since then, however, Steve Bruce's men have had the upper hand, winning three, drawing three and losing just two of the meetings between the sides.
Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez said Blues' battle against relegation could work in his side's favour.
"At this stage, with all Premiership clubs you've got to play good teams," said Benitez.
"Maybe Birmingham will be more concerned about their league position and this might not be as important to them as staying in the division.
"I feel I've got a big enough squad to cope with playing in three competitions and all I can say is that I'd have rather been drawn at home."
Villa's late heartache against Manchester City last night means they face an away replay before considering a visit from either Bolton or Manchester City.
Elsewhere, favourites Chelsea are at home to Newcastle United and Charlton play Middlebrough at The Valley.
