CSKA Moscow and Qarabag out of UEFA Champions League

One-sided Champions League group stage shows gulf between Europe’s haves and have-nots

So, how did the names linked with a Premier League move perform in the Champions League tonight?

If Real are going to buck current form and win a third straight European crown, they'll need Ronaldo to extend his season-leading tally of nine Champions League strikes. Juventus and Basel also completed their passage to the next round, joining Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, PSG and Roma who qualified as group winners, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Basel as runners up. 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.

French champions Monaco were dumped out of Europe two weeks ago with a 4-1 home loss to RB Leipzig and, after naming a much-changed team, were pitiful once more in a 5-2 thrashing at Porto as the Portuguese league leaders eased through.

Just a reminder that you cannot play opponents from the same country in the last 16 or teams you have played in the group stages. Roma knew they would go through from Group C with a win, which they got, although they could only edge out Qarabag of Azerbaijan 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico with a Diego Perotti effort in the second half.

It is also not possible for teams from the same country to be drawn against each other in this round.

Manchester United came from a goal behind to beat CSKA Moscow and secure top spot in Group A in the Champions League.

If Liverpool do secure top spot that makes things even trickier for Chelsea.

However, the easy paths each team took to the Round of 16 must be taken into account.

Chelsea: Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Besiktas, Spartak Moscow or Sevilla.

Manchester City: Basel (20), Bayern Munich (4), Juventus (5), Seville (7), Porto (12) or Real Madrid (1).
