Cahill keen to avoid Barca and PSG in draw for knockout stage

07 Décembre 2017

Roma pipped Chelsea to top spot in Group C, due to a superior head-to-head record after the pair finished on the same points tally. The only other restrictions are that teams from the same country can not be drawn together at this stage, and teams from the same group can not meet.

Champions League draw: Who will Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham face?

Chelsea have squandered an opportunity to finish top of their Champions League group by drawing 1-1 with Atlético Madrid.

Conte reckons it will take a special effort to be crowned Europe's top dog, despite beating the odds in the Premier League last season.

Group runners-up: Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Chelsea, Sevilla, Shakhtar, Porto, Basel.

"We have to go game by game and try to do our best", said boss Conte.

Keillor says MPR wrong to dismiss him without investigation
Jon McTaggart, CEO of MPR's parent company American Public Media Group, addressed the issue at an employee meeting Wednesday. Keillor wants a swift resolution of the matter and "with it expects a full restoration of his reputation", Nilsson said.

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.

Premier League giants Manchester United and Italians Juventus were among the sides to advance to the knockout round of the Champions League Tuesday following victories on the final matchday while Atletico Madrid were eliminated after being held at Chelsea. Both teams are through to round 16.

"In this case, we know we could play Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas".

Barca could draw Bayern, Porto, Shakhtar or Basel as well as Chelsea, but a 44% probability is incredibly high for a draw of this nature.

With just three points to show from their group campaign, Celtic will go into the Europa League draw unseeded and can therefore face Arsenal in the first knockout round. The first legs will be played on 13, 14, 20 and 21 February, and the second legs will be played on 6, 7, 13 and 14 March 2018.

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