Celtic will be unseeded in Europa League knock-out draw

City have already qualified for the last 16 as group winners

Manchester City v SSC Napoli- UEFA Champions League

United finished the group phase with a 2-1 victory over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford while Chelsea drew 1-1 with Atletico Madrid.

It was a busy night of European football as a host of teams played their final Champions League group stage fixture.

Bayern hosts Paris Saint-Germain today needing to win by a four-goal margin to progress as Group B victor.

Through: Celtic reached the Europa League.

Teams from the same group or country can not be drawn against one another. Midfielder Saul gave Atletico the lead, only for a late own goal from defender Stefan Savic to level the scores.

Amid sluggish ticket sales, Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco has been urging fans to show up at the Stadio Olimpico.

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 the Round of 16 draw, the group winners will be placed in Pot 1, and group runners up will be in Pot 2.


Sporting took third despite losing to Francisco Alcacer's header and an own goal from former Barca defender Jeremy Mathieu in a low-key clash at the Camp Nou.

Villarreal, Arsenal, AC Milan, Red Bull Salzburg and Lazio are already confirmed as seeds, having topped their Europa League groups.

There are still some issues to be resolved in Wednesday night's Champions League games.

Indeed, it may turn out that only two qualifiers come from outwith that elite, with Turkish champions Besiktas already through in Group G and only one of Basel or CSKA Moscow likely to advance in Group A.

PARIS: Manchester United and Juventus were among the sides to clinch a place in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday, while Bayern Munich gained a measure of revenge over Paris Saint-Germain.

Leipzig still has a chance to progress on its European debut but needs a favour from Monaco at Porto in Group G. Leipzig, which is level on points with Porto, hosts group victor Besiktas on Wednesday and will only go through if it secures more points than the Portuguese team. Even a defeat for Spurs and a Real Madrid win would not see the Spaniards win the group, as Tottenham have the edge in the head-to-head.

Over the past five years, though, Premier League clubs have found it much more hard to make much headway in the competition.
