Man Utd, Basel, Roma, Juventus into Champions League last 16

Manchester United won Group A with 15 points, but even FC Basel earned 12 to finish second.

Since the Champions League went from using a second group stage to a 16-team knockout tournament in 2003-04, no league had ever qualified five teams for the knockout rounds - until now.

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.

Having finished the 2017-18 A-League season in third place, Brisbane Roar will take part in a preliminary playoff against either Shan United of Myanmar or the winners of the Philippines Football League (who are yet ot be determined) in late January, before facing Tianjin Quanjian for a spot in the group stage.

It means Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham all won their groups, while Chelsea came second in Group C.

Chelsea, meanwhile, had to settle for second place in Group C following their 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

The first leg games will be split over two weeks on the 13th and 14th of February with the remaining ties being playe don the 20th and 21st. That means Chelsea can not play Roma.

There are 16 teams left in the Champions League, half the number that started, with Atlético Madrid, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund the three biggest casualties of the group stages.

That leaves only Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas as Chelsea's options.

Meanwhile, Manchester City lost for the first time in 29 matches as Shakhtar Donetsk beat them 2-1 this morning.

On the other hand, Italy's A.S. Roma has advanced to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.

Over the past five years, though, Premier League clubs have found it much more hard to make much headway in the competition.
