Roma beat Chelsea to top spot — Champions League

07 Diciembre 2017

Which way to the #UCL last 16, Jose? Even a defeat for Spurs and a Real Madrid win would not see the Spaniards win the group, as Tottenham have the edge in the head-to-head.

The game of the evening took place at the Allianz Arena as Bayern Munich hosted Paris Saint-Germain, and it certainly lived up to its billing. Altogether, there are 32 teams battling for a coveted spot in the knockout rounds, and we will take a look at some of the key games for Tuesday, and Wednesday Night across Europe. So United, City and Spurs know they will be up against teams who finished second. However, in the Champions League, the head-to-head record between clubs is the first tiebreaker, as opposed to goal difference.

Italian champions Juventus struck early in Greece through Juan Cuadrado and late with Federico Bernardeschi to secure the runners-up place in Group D behind Barca.

The Blues enjoyed marginally the better of a tight first half with Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta both being denied by keeper Jan Oblak.

Fifteen points from a possible eighteen comfortably allowed Manchester United to advance to the knockout stage of the Champions League, after a routine win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford.

From that point onwards it is a free draw so group-stage rematches and any all-Premier League clashes could be back on the agenda from that point onwards.

The draw for the round of 16 takes place at UEFA's headquarters in Nyom in Switzerland on Monday.

Some targets may be more attainable than others, but that won't stop English clubs opening their wallets in the New Year.

For the most part, finishing positions in all eight groups have now been decided with teams from the same country also unable to draw each other in the second round. But if you think that Paris will pull-off a difficult win on-the-road, the odds are 2.70.
