Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

Despite the defeat and both teams finishing the group stage on 15 points, PSG qualified as group winners for the knock out stages after beating Bayern 3-0 in the reverse fixture. Tottenham and Besiktas complete the set of current qualifiers. A favourable draw could now put them on the brink of a first quarter-final appearance in ten years.

It was a similar story in the other game in the group, where Anderlecht needed a three-goal win to displace Celtic from the Europa League qualifying slot. By tomorrow, they could have five. If finished behind Manchester United, which struck twice in two minutes to come from behind and beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 to seal the top spot in Group A.

For the most part, finishing positions in all eight groups have now been decided with teams from the same country also unable to draw each other in the second round.

The draw for the first knockout stage of the Champions League.

Mbappe scored six times last season while playing for 2016-17 Champions League semi-finalists Monaco and has proceeded to add four to his total this season after his move to PSG.

United progressed as winners from Group A thanks to two goals in a minute from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, turning the tie with the Russians who led in the first half. If both teams draw, Dortmund will finish third due to their superior goal difference.

Qarabag will finish bottom of Group C.

Napoli appear to have the toughest path to the knockout stage.

Manchester City have already won group F ahead of their final game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

Chelsea, which was already though, drew 1-1 against Atletico Madrid, which allowed Roma to take top spot with a 1-0 victory over Qarabag.

That means Tottenham, for example, can not be drawn against Real Madrid as they were both in Group H, while they also can not meet any of the English teams to have won their group, like Manchester United.

"We want to win and sing together", Di Francesco posted on social media.

Mbappe scored his powerful header at the age of 18 years, 11 months and 15 days, beating the previous Champions League record by nearly two years.
