Champions League: United, Juve into Last 16; as Bayern Beat PSG

Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Diego Perotti scored early in the second-half as Roma edged Qarabag 1-0 at the Stadio Olympico to win Group C ahead of Chelsea, who had to come from behind to draw 1-1 at home to Atletico.

No country has ever had five clubs in the knockout stage with the previous best being four from the same nation - achieved on several occasions by England, Spain and Germany.

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.

English teams will not be able to be meet in Monday's draw, under UEFA regulations.

Sporting Lisbon and CSKA Moscow both went into the final round of matches with a slim hope of making it into the next stage of the Champions League but fell after defeats the Barcelona and Manchester United respectively.

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United were barely anxious by Basel, CSKA Moscow and a poor Benfica team that lost all six of their games.

So, how did the names linked with a Premier League move perform in the Champions League tonight?

Also, no side can be drawn against a team they played in the group phase.

"We have to see".

"Don't forget here this season is very tough". You have to play a lot of games. When you play this type of big game, the little details are important and shape the final result.

Chelsea found themselves with little alternatives as, at the moment, Psg, Besiktas and Barcelona are the only clubs that Antonio Conte's side can face in the last-16 stage.

Champions League draw: Who will Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham face? A physical, tight affair that either team could've won.

"Maybe you are good today and in February you are a disaster or the opposite", he said.

"We could play against Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas, but we must be ready".
