Spurs have sailed through what appeared to be a group of death


The official group stage draw for the upcoming competition took place on Wednesday night, featuring 32 of the region's elite teams. Bayern needed just two more in the second half to top the group, but Mbappé dented those hopes soon after halftime when he headed home a ball sent in by Edinson Cavani.

Juve join Group D winners Barcelona, who rounded off their group phase with a routine 2-0 win at home against Sporting Lisbon. On current form PSG is probably the last team we'd want to draw, and we'd probably pick Basel over Roma if given the choice. Los Colchoneros are ranked No. 2 in UEFA's club coefficients, a rating score based on the previous five seasons of European play.

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has played down talk of Antoine Griezmann moving to Manchester United following his side's exit from the Champions League group stages.

And that is the point: while some sides are clearly stronger than others, there are 10 possible winners in the most open Champions League ever. The other non-English clubs that went through in second place are Basel, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto.

Here, we take a look at the Premier League five's chances of lifting the trophy in Kiev next May.

Starsport will bring you live coverage via a blog on Monday lunchtime. Both teams are through to round 16. We now have a good idea of who'll dazzle us in the knockout rounds, as well as knowing who's going out altogether and who's going to feature in the Europa League. The Blues boss wanted a string of world-class reinforcements during the summer and he received but a few. The Spaniard had been excellent against Atlético in September's meeting between the sides and, once again, benefited from Hazard's scuttling brilliance.

These restrictions are removed ahead of the quarter-finals.

There is some hope for Atleti.

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri left striker Mario Mandzukic on the bench as he recovered from a calf injury, but the club looked comfortable playing in a low gear.

Considering their blistering start to the Premier League season, Manchester City's European escapades have been even more impressive.

They can meet Basel, Bayern, Juventus, Sevilla, Shakhtar or Porto.

Chelsea had come closest to forcing themselves ahead, Zappacosta allowed to cut infield by Thomas Partey before forcing Jan Oblak into a low save at his near post and Tiemoué Bakayoko steering a shot wide from Cesc Fàbregas' fine cut-back.
