Man United among Champions League last 16

Man United among Champions League last 16”

At Old Trafford, Manchester United sealed their place at the top of Group A by beating CSKA Moscow 2-1 with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the 64th and 66th minute, respectively.

Premier League giants Manchester United and Italians Juventus were among the sides to advance to the knockout round of the Champions League Tuesday following victories on the final matchday while Atletico Madrid were eliminated after being held at Chelsea.

Basel won 2-0 at Benfica to qualify second.

The Champions League last-16 draw will take place in Nyon on Monday, December 11 at 11am GMT.

Kylian Mbappe got one back for the Parisians who won the group and may go up against the likes of Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid in the last 16.

United join fellow group winners Manchester City, Tottenham, Barcelona, Besiktas, Roma and Paris St-Germain in the next phase.

Just a reminder that you cannot play opponents from the same country in the last 16 or teams you have played in the group stages. That means Chelsea can not draw Roma, Manchester United can not be drawn to play against Basel and Tottenham will not be up against their Group H opponents Real Madrid. The Blues also can't play another English team in the Round of 16.

It was a busy night of European football as a host of teams played their final Champions League group stage fixture.

Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas are amongst the opposition that Chelsea can face, but Azpilicueta isn't too anxious about his side's second-placed finish.

Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli, Porto or RB Leipzig.

Manchester City: Basel (20), Bayern Munich (4), Juventus (5), Seville (7), Porto (12) or Real Madrid (1).

The eight group winners will be seeded and will be away in the first-leg matches, which are scheduled for 13/14 and 20/21 February.

Over the past five years, though, Premier League clubs have found it much more hard to make much headway in the competition.
