Chelsea boss Antonio Conte warns fans over Champions League expectations

Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

Frank Lampard believes Chelsea have the chance to close ground on Premier League leaders Manchester City after securing their spot in the Champions League knockout stage.

But when the group stage draw came out, we noted the great opportunity Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool were given thanks to delectably easy groups.

"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".

Runners-up: Bayern Munich, Chelsea, FC Basel, FC Porto, Juventus, Real Madrid, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk.

Teams from the same group or country can not be drawn against each other, limiting some of the potential match-ups in the first knockout stage.

Chelsea found themselves with little alternatives as, at the moment, Psg, Besiktas and Barcelona are the only clubs that Antonio Conte's side can face in the last-16 stage.

Keeping an eye on Moving Averages, the 50-day is 37.95, the 200-day is at 40.91, and the 7-day is 41.24 for Scholastic Cp (SCHL). On the other side, a stock may be considered to be in a downtrend if trading below the moving average and sloping downward.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham all won on a historic Champions League night for English football. As a result of these restrictions, the Blues would only be able to draw three teams in the round of 16 - Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Besiktas. 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.

Manchester United won Group A with 15 points, but even FC Basel earned 12 to finish second.

A meeting with Jose's former side Real Madrid is also very much on the cards for United.

Only once before has one country had five participants in the Champions League and that was in 2015-16 when Spain had five clubs; Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Valencia and Europa League winners Sevilla.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds finished top of Group E after their crushing Anfield success, while Tottenham beat Apoel Nicosia 3-0 to top Group H. City, who had already progressed as Group F winners, lost their 100 per cent record with a 2-1 loss away to Shakhtar Donetsk. 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.
