Ernesto Valverde's reward for guiding his side to the top of the group is the 44 percent chance of a meeting with Chelsea, and a 58 percent chance of meeting either Chelsea or Bayern.

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.

And the wing-back who featured for the entire duration of the game took to Twitter to acknowledge his disappointment expressed confidence that the Blues will bounce back.

Another likely contender for the title will be Borussia Dortmund after they brought an end to a disastrous Champions League campaign, losing 3-2 against Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Chelsea were the most recent English team to reach the final, winning in 2012, and Eden Hazard reckons Chelsea have what it takes to progress in the competition.

The answer was provided by BT Sport's Des Kelly a few hours after the final whistle. We are Chelsea. We can face any team. We should top the group but it's a good draw, Atletico are very strong. And why can Chelsea basically start planning for a trip to Camp Nou? "When you play this competition, you must be ready to face the best teams", Conte said.

"I am really happy because we don't want to qualify with a defeat and we don't want to qualify with a bad performance so the objective was to qualify playing well". Anderlecht, despite the win, are eliminated.

Atletico have pedigree in the tournament.

With this victory, Manchester United secured safe passage through to the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, while CSKA will play in the 1/16 of the UEFA Europa League.

Possible opponents: PSG, Barcelona, Besiktas. We should have won.

Barcelona's situation is less extreme, but similar nonetheless. Even though we had already qualified, we wanted the three points.
