With the three points from their final game, Roma overtook Chelsea at the top of the standings as they increased their points tally to 11, same as the Blues. We now have a good idea of who'll dazzle us in the knockout rounds, as well as knowing who's going out altogether and who's going to feature in the Europa League.

Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid last night, a result that saw them finish second in their group to Roma.

Atletico Madrid were eliminated from the Champions League after a 1-1 draw at Chelsea that denied the English side top spot in Group C. The first legs will be played on 13, 14, 20 and 21 February, and the second legs will be played on 6, 7, 13 and 14 March 2018.

"We could play against Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas, but we must be ready".

Both clubs would prefer to play weaker teams in the next stage of the competition and if Liverpool fail to win against Spartak tonight either the Russians or Sevilla could become possible opponents for Chelsea in the last 16 stage.

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored in a two-minute spell in the second half to seal victory at Old Trafford after a contentious goal for CSKA on the stroke of half-time off the back of Alan Dzagoev. 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.

Again Morata went close to the opener when he stretched to meet Victor Moses' cross, but Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak spread himself to block the Spaniard's close-range effort. But instead, they found themselves behind in the 56th minute when Saul Niguez shot the visitors in front. Undefeated in a group which included Juventus - who they beat 3-0 in September - Barca could well be back to their best on the European stage.
