Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

Matchday six of the 2017-18 Champions League is over and we now have a completed field of 16 teams that will progress from the group stageThirty-two teams have been whittled down to 16 for the second-round draw, which takes place shortly after the conclusion of the final group games.

The result means that Antonio Conte's team surrendered top spot in Group C to Roma and could now face a daunting prospect in the knockout stages. "For this reason I think it could be problematic to win (the Champions League)". So United, City and Spurs know they will be up against teams who finished second.

Manchester United won Group A with 15 points, but even FC Basel earned 12 to finish second. Real Madrid are also confirmed to finish second and will be joined by three more sides - now scheduled to be Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto.

Chelsea will find out their Champions League opponents for the round of 16 at 11am on December 11 when UEFA conduct the draw.

Are there any other restrictions?

Teams from the same country cannot draw each other, nor can teams who played each other in the group stage.

However, teams from the same groups can not face each other, while teams from the same country can not take on one another either.

Finished third in the group, CSKA, Celtic, Atletico Madrid and sporting CP will play in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League.

If only one team makes the semifinals or none reach the final, something no English club has done since 2012, then it will be seen as a blown opportunity instead of a banner year.

Chelsea: Barcelona, Besiktas, Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester City: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Real Madrid, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Porto or RB Leipzig. If Mauricio Pochettino can keep Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen fit and firing, Tottenham could match their famous run to the quarter-finals in 2011, at least.
