Champions League: which teams can qualify for the last 16?

Champions League: which teams can qualify for the last 16?

Mourinho's men ran out 4-1 winners in Moscow earlier in the season when Romelu Lukaku scored twice in a game United dominated. Anything less in their match against Atletico Madrid and the team could fall out of first place.

Group winners will be drawn against second-place sides (who are not from the same country and who they did not play in the group stages). And Mbappe's fellow Frenchman isn't the only impressive figure to have been passed by the Paris Saint-Germain star with that goal, which also made him the only teenager in the modern-day Champions League to reach the mark.

For Anderlecht to finish third they must win by three clear goals against Celtic.

A day later, Liverpool can secure top spot in Group E by beating Spartak.

Roma were given the green light to build a new stadium on Tuesday, and celebrated by edging out Azeris Qarabag 1-0 to top Group C.




Roma knew they would go through from Group C with a win, which they got, although they could only edge out Qarabag of Azerbaijan 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico with a Diego Perotti effort in the second half.

Elsewhere, Chelsea missed out on top spot in Group C after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge. If both Athletico and Roma draw, Athletico will progress with a superior head-to-head record. Juventus will finish second if they win at Olympiakos or if Sporting do not beat Barca. Sporting have been rejuvenated in the last two seasons under Jorge Jesus, but face the daunting task of having to win at Barcelona to have any chance of ending a nine-year absence from the knockout stage. They have claimed maximum points from five matches so far and could be worth siding with to beat Bayern Munich away. Liverpool need at least a point to be assured of qualifying and winning the group.

It's the first time the club has reached the Round of 16 in Europe's elite competition since the 2013/14 season, when David Moyes's side reached the quarter-finals but were knocked out by Bayern Munich following a 4-2 aggregate defeat. If Porto finish level on points with Leipzig, the Portuguese side will qualify due to their better head-to-head record.

Dortmund and APOEL are contesting third place.

Whether both teams win or lose the final ranking will depend on the number of goals scored and conceded in the last two matches.
