The pots for Champions League last 16, first and second leg dates

Manchester United, Basel, Roma, Juventus into Champions League last 16

Diego Simeone insisted Atletico Madrid's Champions League campaign was not a failure after they were eliminated on Tuesday.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Spurs all topped their groups, while Chelsea came second.

"You must be ready to face the best teams".

United still sit eight points behind local rivals Manchester City in the Premier League, but could cut the gap in a crucial derby at Old Trafford on Sunday.

One of the advantages of winning your Champions League group is that this guarantees that a team will not have to play one of the other seven sides who topped their group too.

A balanced draw has two-time defending champion Real Madrid and Bayern Munich among five former winners in the pot of unseeded teams who were group 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.

There are set to be some heavyweight ties in the Champions League round of 16 with the seedings for the first knockout round now known.

This 'Royal' feels sorry for Meghan Markle
And when it comes down to the male side of the royal court, Meghan will only have to curtsey to those with a "Prince" title. Though when William is around, she is not expected to curtsey to Andrew's two daughters.

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.

Liverpool: Bayern Munich, FC Basel, FC Porto, Juventus, Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk.

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

The Blues had entered the final round of group matches in pole position, but the result at Stamford Bridge and Roma's 1-0 home win over Qarabag saw the Serie A side win the group by virtue of their superior head-to-head record against Chelsea.

Cahill won the European Cup in 2012 with Chelsea, who remain the most recent English team to make the final.

The Blues finished behind Serie A club AS Roma to throw up the possibility of Chelsea facing La Liga leaders Barcelona or Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in the next round.
