Champions League: Roma beat Chelsea to top spot

Champions League: Roma beat Chelsea to top spot

Teams from the same group or country can not be drawn against each other, limiting some of the potential match-ups in the first knockout stage.

Diego Simeone's men were instantly installed as one of the favourites to win the Europa League after falling at the expense of Chelsea and Roma in their group. Juventus and Basel also completed their passage to the next round, joining Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, PSG and Roma who qualified as group winners, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Basel as runners up.

Conte says Chelsea fear no-one in Europe's elite club competition, but reckons the strength in depth of the domestic league makes winning the European Cup hard for English clubs.

This would mean Barcelona and Chelsea will have the 33% of chances to meet each other in the last 16 stage.

"But it's a good draw because Atletico played well they are very strong so we are happy today".

Eden Hazard says Chelsea do not fear facing Paris St Germain or Barcelona in the Champions League last 16 after his side were held to a draw by Atletico Madrid and missed out on top spot in their group.

Much of the backlog is already cleared, and UPS doesn't expect to miss Christmas deadlines because of it, Gaut said. UPS predicts that it will deliver 750 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Accordingly, both the sides are aware of the club they could potentially be up against in the final 16.

"We tried to play our game".

Elsewhere Manchester City have already won Group F. However, Napoli and Shakhtar Donetsk are still fighting it out for the other place in the knockout stages of the competition. We should have scored more goals, won the game and finished first in the group but we drew.

With just three points to show from their group campaign, Celtic will go into the Europa League draw unseeded and can therefore face Arsenal in the first knockout round.

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