Diego Simeone Reflects On Atletico Madrid's Drop To The Europa League

Diego Simeone Reflects On Atletico Madrid's Drop To The Europa League

The draw for the last-16 of the Champions League is on Monday at 11am.

The fact that they can not play Real Madrid again in the next round probably gives them the most favourable list of potential opponents. "But. the English teams are very good and have the possibility to win and reach the final of the Champions League". That means Chelsea can not draw Roma, Manchester United can not be drawn to play against Basel and Tottenham will not be up against their Group H opponents Real Madrid.

Diego Simeone insisted Atletico Madrid's Champions League campaign was not a failure after they were eliminated on Tuesday.

With the three points from their final game, Roma overtook Chelsea at the top of the standings as they increased their points tally to 11, same as the Blues.

Arsenal's quest to win the Europa League for the first time in their history has become a significantly tougher prospect after the introduction of several prominent teams into the Round of 32 draw.

Group winners: Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Roma, Besiktas. Barca are also restricted in terms of who they can face in the last-16 as they cannot be drawn against fellow Spanish sides Real Madrid or Sevilla - or Juventus, who they shared a group with.

"Football is like this, it doesn't depend on tactics, possession and stats, at the end of the day what is important is to be decisive, and you need to score".

Which teams are through to the Champions League Round of 16 stage?

When is the draw and when are the games? 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.
