Champions League: United, Juve into Last 16; as Bayern Beat PSG

Ajustar Comentario Impresión

That means that even if Liverpool finish second in their group on Wednesday, they will still not play against one of the four Premier League group winners in the last 16.

Germany-born striker Kwasi Okyere Wriedt is in Bayern Munich's squad for their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday at the Allianz Arena.

Atletico, losing finalists to Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016, were ultimately made to pay for two draws against Champions League debutants Qarabag, after both Roma and Chelsea saw off the Azeris twice.

Atletico Madrid, Basel, CSKA Moscow, Juventus, Leipzig, Liverpool, Manchester United, Napoli, Porto, Roma, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Spartak Moscow and Sporting Lisbon are also in with a chance.

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.

Something will have to give, with City chasing a record 14th straight Prem win which would take them clear past Arsenal and Chelsea's back-to-back winning runs from 2001/02 and 2016/17 respectively.

Juventus will qualify in second with victory at Olympiacos or if Sporting fail to win. 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.

PSG qualified as winners of Group B, Bayern finishing second, while Anderlecht beat Scottish champions Celtic, who secured a Europa League spot despite the 1-0 loss.

It was the first Leg 3-0 defeat at the Parc des Princes that signaled the end of Carlo Ancelotti's time in charge at Bayern. Celtic and Anderlecht can both still finish third and qualify for the Europa League. Napoli, who lost their unbeaten start to the Italian season with a 1-0 defeat by Juventus on Friday, are looking to reach the last 16 for only the third time. To qualify in first place, Liverpool need a win or a draw if Sevilla fail to win at NK Maribor. They have claimed maximum points from five matches so far and could be worth siding with to beat Bayern Munich away.

A day later, Liverpool can secure top spot in Group E by beating Spartak.

Leipzig, who are level on points with Porto, host group victor Besiktas Wednesday and will only go through if they secure more points than the Portuguese team. Basel will also qualify if both sides lose or draw their matches as they have a superior head-to-head record against the Russians.
