Mbappe sets new Champions League record ahead of Messi and Benzema

Perennial Champions League high performers Atletico Madrid finished third in the group.

"We're passionate about sport and technology and want to continue to explore new ways to combine them for the benefit of our viewers and bring them closer to the action".

Premier League clubs are able to sign and retain top players, while also attracting the leading coaches in the game - including Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte.

"When you go through to the next round in this competition, you must be prepared to face the best teams", Conte said.

The remaining four third-placed UEFA Champions League sides are unseeded together with the 12 UEFA Europa League group runners-up.

Big spending French outfit PSG finished top of Group B, despite suffering a 3-1 defeat at Bayern Munich in their last group game.

There has not been heavy investment on transfer fees or salaries like at Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool.

On their return to continental competition, the Premier League champions' one point from two games against Roma proved costly as the Italians advanced as group winners with a superior head-to-head record.

"We've been eliminated after picking up more points from the top team than the bottom!" Substitute Willian might have won it for Chelsea, who instead had to settle for a draw.

They will be joined in the knockout stages by Juventus, who won by the same score at Olympiacos with Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi on the scoresheet.

If a move away wasn't guaranteed already, it most certainly is, and could even occur next month. Goals shouldn't be a problem.

Diego Simeone insisted Atletico Madrid's Champions League campaign was not a failure after they were eliminated on Tuesday.

The Swiss outfit got off to the perfect start when Mohamed Elyounoussi headed them into a fifth-minute lead from Michael Lang's cross.

This would have been questionable even if Llorente had only taken a single shot; as it happens, he had three. Barça cannot face Sevilla or Real Madrid because they both Spanish, and Juventus also qualified from Group D. As such, Bayern Munich, Porto, Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk, and Basel are the possible opponents for Barcelona.

Anything else you need to know? There's the attacking potency provided by Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus, Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling.

Chelsea: Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Besiktas, Spartak Moscow or Sevilla.

"You expect to see the very, very big teams later on". The good news is that the knockout stage could be just as entertaining.
