Atletico crash out, Chelsea sink to second place

Chelsea 1-1 Atletico Madrid

Roma needed Diego Perotta's 53rd-minute header to get past Azerbaijani side Qarabag to book their place in the last 16 as group winners.

"We have this really good team, a strong team". The only other restrictions are that teams from the same country can not be drawn together at this stage, and teams from the same group can not meet.

The draw means Atletico drop into the Europa League from the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2009/10, when they went on to win Europe's second-tier competition.

One factor that has often been blamed for recent failures of English clubs is the intensity of the domestic campaign, with its heavy winter schedule taking a toll before the "business end" of the Champions League.

So why are Chelsea destined to play Barcelona? "Our opponent won't be happy to play against us", Conte added.

Guardiola hails 'big victory' for gritty City
It proved successful in the first half as City dominated possession but struggled to create clear-cut chances. "I'd have thought if you're a centre-half dealing with that you'd head it away".

After a lifeless first half, the second sprung to life with almost triple the amount of chances between the two teams.

Atletico striker Fernando Torres endured a hard three-and-a-half years with Chelsea, but he came close to giving his side an early lead on his return to west London when his shot deflected onto the roof of Thibaut Courtois' net. I remember during the European Championship with the national team we finished first in our group and played against Spain, then Germany and, if we'd beaten Germany, we'd have to play France.

No country has ever had five clubs in the knockout stage with the previous best being four from the same nation - achieved on several occasions by England, Spain and Germany.

Antonio Conte's men could not find the back of the net themselves and needed an own goal from Stefan Savic in the 75th minute to be saved the agony of a home defeat on Tuesday. Morata should have put Chelsea ahead moments later, but he shot too close to Oblak.
