Man United among Champions League last 16


Heading for top spot? Chelsea are already through

CSKA drop into the Europa League, while Basel reached the last 16 for the third time this decade, the Swiss champions beating Benfica 2-0 in Lisbon with goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Dimitri Oberlin. Roma knew they would go through from Group C with a win, which they got, although they could only edge out Qarabag of Azerbaijan 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico with a Diego Perotti effort in the second half.

Which teams are through to the Champions League Round of 16 stage?

For the record, finishing positions in all eight groups have now been more or less declared, with clubs from the same country unable to draw each other in the second round.

Atletico finished four points behind leaders Roma and runners-up Chelsea as they were consigned to Europa League football - a competition won on three occasions by the Spanish capital side and Oblak was left to rue the result.

LIVERPOOL were one of four clubs to secure qualification for the last 16 of the Champions League in the final round of group games on Wednesday.

That leaves only Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas as Chelsea's options.

So, how did the names linked with a Premier League move perform in the Champions League tonight?

Mark Cavendish set to compete in Tour de Yorkshire
The former road race world champion's participation was announced as the route for the four-day event was unveiled today. The second stage goes from Barnsley to Ilkley and the final day sets off from Halifax, with the victor crowned in Leeds.

Liverpool: Basel (20), Bayern Munich (4), Juventus (5), Shakhtar Donetsk (16), Porto (12) or Real Madrid (1).

Two will come from group E (one of Liverpool, Sevilla and Spartak Moscow), one from F, with the clash between Shakhtar Donetsk and Naples, and another from group G, either Porto or Leipzig.

These restrictions are removed ahead of the quarter-finals.

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

When is the draw and when are the games?

The draw for the last 16 takes place next Tuesday.

Round of 16 first-leg games are played from February 13-21.
