7 occasions you missed from the Champions League

The Italian believes English teams will find it harder to excel in the latter stages of the Champions League as they play more games than their European rivals.

Manchester United's Europa League triumph last season put them in the Champions League with Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool.

Only French giants Paris Saint-Germain scored more goals than the Merseyside outfit in the competition group stages this year, with 25.

The Reds swept into the last-16 of Europe's premier club competition on Wednesday with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak Moscow.

"It is difficult to explain, but from now on we are just going to concentrate on what is coming, whether it be the Europa League, Copa del Rey or La Liga".

Neighbors Manchester United, winners of Group A face no easy task either, and could also be in the running to face either Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid.

The tricky Uruguayan has failed to score a single goal in any of Barcelona's six group stages.

PSG's impressive attack extended its tournament record of 24 goals in the group stage with another one.

When and where is the last-16 draw? After his first season back in England, the jury was still out as many felt he failed to live up the price tag.

Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Shakhtar Donetsk.

"Maybe you are good today and in February you are a disaster or the opposite", he said.

Even more so since a place in the following season's Champions League has been awarded to the winners.

It takes place on Monday from 11am GMT and you will be able to follow it on the Guardian's website.

"It was a really tough group, and Atletico Madrid, in the past, played a fantastic Champions League and twice reached the final".

How will the draw work?

Chelsea delivered the big one in 2012.

With Lionel Messi rested by Barcelona for the first hour, forward Paco Alcacer took full advantage of the opportunity by scoring a header in the 59th.

The knockout draw of the Champions League will see the winners of each of the eight groups seeded, whilst the runners-up will not be. In style. Spurs' league form may have suffered for it, but they've been terrific in the Champions League.

Probably the most shock result of the competition so far was Spurs incredible rise to the top of Group G, despite being drawn in a potential group of death alongside Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
