Liverpool win means five English teams reach last 16 of Champions League

Liverpool win means five English teams reach last 16 of Champions League

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.

Strengths: As ever, no opponent will relish visiting Anfield and contending with one of the most fevered atmospheres on Champions League nights. As a result of these restrictions, the Blues would only be able to draw three teams in the round of 16 - Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Besiktas.

With European heavyweights like Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus in pot two, there are guaranteed to be some blockbuster clashes in the second round.

Today, we'll look at the best-and-worse case scenario for United's draw in the round of 16. Striker Sergio Aguero scored a consolation for the Citizens in stoppage-time.

City made seven changes to their starting line-up and were 2-0 down at the interval after goals from the Ukraine side's Bernard and Ismaily.

It is time to take stock on who's on fire in the Premier League right now. We should top the group but it's a good draw, Atletico are very strong.

Sporting still have the chance of reaching the next phase of the competition, but need to win and for Juventus to fail to beat Olympiakos in their game. The Catalonians equalled the record for the least goals conceded in a group stage - just the single goal in six matches - not bad in a group featuring Juventus.

After their shock defeat by Strasbourg in Ligue 1 at the weekend, cracks are starting to show in Unai Emery's side.

Asked if he was worried about players wanting to leave in January or the summer, Simeone said: "No, on the contrary, I think this could be a new challenge". He put in a characteristic all-action performance in general play, too; could his next Champions League game, as per recent rumours, be in Manchester United's colours? Barcelona, the greatest attacking side of the past decade, showed a wholly different side to their game. It was his third goal of the group stage and served notice that he has the ability to trouble the best.
