With the group stage over, Nick Ames picks the best Champions League XI from the final matches with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the way up top.

"We are Chelsea, we are a big team like them".

However, the Premier League heavyweights can only face Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas in the next round.

They were defensively great, controlled the midfield battle and had every Chelsea defender in knots whenever they attacked. Lang, whose stock continues to rise, helped his side produce the perfect away performance thereafter. In the end, Roma's win against Qarabag made the result irrelevant for Diego Simeone's team, who failed to qualify for the last 16 for the first since the 2009-10 season.

"They went 1-0 down to a mistake, they responded very well and just some nights those goals don't go in".

When is the last-16 draw and how does it work?

They've exceeded expectations in this group massively by not only getting out of it, but by topping the group itself.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Spurs all topped their groups, while Chelsea came second.

But Saul Niguez escaped the attentions of Tiemoue Bakayoko to plant home a header from Fernando Torres' near-post flick-on after 56 minutes. Perhaps Jupp Heynckes is leading Bayern into genuine contention once more.

Roy Keane reckons at least one of the English teams have a chance of success in the competition this season, but doesn't see Liverpool mounting a challenge.

The Group E side ended things on a great note by mauling Spartak Moscow 7-0 at Anfield.

"It's part of football". The hope for Liverpool fans must be that he sticks around for the knockout stage, with Barcelona still hovering. "At the same time I think our opponent won't be happy to play against us".

"We know we could play Barcelona or PSG". His sumptuous right-footed curler, right into the top corner, gave Shakhtar a lead they never relinquished.

"Chelsea shouldn't fear anyone at the moment". Neymar alone has scored six goals in Europe already - the mere sight of the blond Brazilian would petrify most teams.
