Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Man Utd will find out who they face in the Champions League round of 16 in Monday’s draw, but who could they face?
Pep Guardiola’s City sealed their place in the round of 16 with a game to spare, meaning the 2-1 defeat to RB Leipzig in the last group match was of little significance, although the current holders Champions League Chelsea had to settle for second place in Group H after a 3-3 draw with Zenit in the last group match.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool – who had already taken top spot in Group B two days to spare – became the first English side to win all six Champions League group stage games, beating AC 2-1 Milan in the last match and posted a reminder of their threat in this competition.
PSG finished second to City in Group A and, with Manchester United confirmed as Group F winner, there is an external possibility that Mauricio Pochettino will draw the club he has been closely linked with, as Old Trafford awaits his next permanent coach.
So, with a full house in the Premier League in the round of 16, who else qualified and when is the draw for this season’s Champions League round of 16?
