Man United top Champions League group with comeback win vs CSKA Moscow

Man United top Champions League group with comeback win vs CSKA Moscow

The Red Devils finished as winners of their group, with their final fixture being a 2-1 triumph over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford.

Porto won 5-2 at home to last season's semi-finalists Monaco to qualify from Group G, while Shakhtar Donetsk beat Manchester City 2-1 to go through with Pep Guardiola's men from Group F.

Atletico de Madrid confirmed their exit from the UEFA Champions League with a 1-1draw at Chelsea, allowing Roma to advance to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.

"Well if you see the teams that you could face even being first, was hard but it's true that being first you play the second leg at home".

The English have never had five teams in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Anything else you need to know? The leaders of the groups have an advantage as they will play the return leg at home. the case of Chelsea is curious as they can only possibly face three teams in the next round in PSG, Besiktas or Barcelona.

With European heavyweights like Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Juventus in pot two, there are guaranteed to be some blockbuster clashes in the second round.


Tottenham and Manchester City had already qualified as group winners during the last round of group games, while United and Chelsea weren't assured of their finishing positions until tonight.

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

Four Colombians played in three different Champions League matches this Tuesday, here is a look at how The Cafeteros faired in their respective games.

Sevilla is in a much more comfortable position as it can reach the last 16 for the second straight season with a draw at Maribor tomorrow.

With our defense, my heart couldn't possibly handle us trying to cling on to a draw and a precious spot in the last 16 of the Champions League.

However, they will be able to face each other in the quarter finals.

Real Madrid's possible opponents: Manchester United, PSG, Rome, Liverpool, Manchester City and Besiktas. 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.
