Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

The Champions League group stage came to a pulsating conclusion on Wednesday and we now know all the teams that will contest the last-16 stage, to be drawn on Monday.

"Don't forget here this season is very tough".

Azpilicueta said: 'It's true that if you finish first, you play the second leg at home.

Sporting took third despite losing to Francisco Alcacer's header and an own goal from former Barca defender Jeremy Mathieu in a low-key clash at the Camp Nou.

Even the English Premier League club Manchester United, who won 2-1 at home against Moscow's CSKA, also moved to the next round of the tournament.

Chelsea drew 1-1 with Spanish side Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge. And that was nothing strange, given what had already happened this campaign.

Maurizio Sarri's Napoli left their mark on the Champions League, with enterprising displays in back-to-back defeats by City, but ultimately disappointed by also losing to Feyenoord and Shakhtar.

Last season's beaten finalists Juventus clinched a spot in the knockout round after beating Olympiakos 2-0 in Greece, Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi on target for the Serie A champions.

But with the January transfer window opening in less than four weeks, a host of Premier League scouts will have been more occupied with casting their eyes over European football's brightest talents.

Sparked by that near-miss, Atletico snatched the lead in the 56th minute.

Romelu Lukaku after a long drought got back to scoring ways in the encounter while Marcus Rashord sealed victory. However, 19 minutes later, a Stefan Savic own goal gifted the Blues an equaliser. "In the first game [in Rome] we didn't get the rub of the green, in the second they [Chelsea] scored against us late on, which was unfortunate again", he continued.

Chelsea had come closest to forcing themselves ahead, Zappacosta allowed to cut infield by Thomas Partey before forcing Jan Oblak into a low save at his near post and Tiemoué Bakayoko steering a shot wide from Cesc Fàbregas' fine cut-back.
