Champions League: United, Juve into Last 16; as Bayern Beat PSG

Jueves, 07 Dic, 2017

Cesar Azpilicueta is aiming to put the disappointment of Chelsea's failure to top their Champions League group behind him and focus on the Blues' domestic commitments. The manager makes the best decisions for the team, and it was important we won. So United, City and Spurs know they will be up against teams who finished second.

Deterioration. Saúl's goal was the moment to take hold of the game and possession of the ball. The Real Madrid legend became the first man to score in every single Champions League group stage game - hitting nine in the process. It hurts but there are no excuses. However, they will be restricted from being drawn against clubs from their own Football association, as well as the team who finished second in their group.

Diego Simeone's men were instantly installed as one of the favourites to win the Europa League after falling at the expense of Chelsea and Roma in their group.

So why are Chelsea destined to play Barcelona?

Barca could draw Bayern, Porto, Shakhtar or Basel as well as Chelsea, but a 44% probability is incredibly high for a draw of this nature.

Tottenham: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli, Porto or RB Leipzig.

Group winners: Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Roma, Besiktas. That's why you want to go through and try and be a protagonist in this tournament.

These restrictions are removed ahead of the quarter-finals.

It's not certain, but Antonio Conte's side coming up against Messi and co is by far the most likely tie of any to be drawn on Monday.

"It's not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea", said the attacker.

Helped in no small part by a ruthless 7-1 victory over Celtic, the Parisiens set a new record of 25 goals at the group stage, smashing the previous record of 21 set by Borussia Dortmund in 2016.
