CSKA Moscow and Qarabag out of UEFA Champions League

Conte wants top spot in Champions League group but not because of knockout round seeding Manchester United win Champions League group in style

Manchester United have qualified for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League as winners of Group A.

In Group C, Italian club Roma defeated already eliminated Azeri club Qarabag 1-0 to top their group thanks to a draw in the other match of the group between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.

Juve join Group D winners Barcelona, who rounded off their group phase with a routine 2-0 win at home against Sporting Lisbon. 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.

The Champions League group stage saw more goals in 2017-18 than in any previous season in the history of the competition, with 306 scored in total.

Kylian Mbappe got one back for the Parisians who won the group and may go up against the likes of Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid in the last 16.

Jo Gill said: "Goodnight Dixie, you really were one of the funniest and best blokes I worked with". Thames Valley Police said the next-of-kin of both PC Dixon and the dead woman had been informed.

It means Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham all won their groups, while Chelsea came second in Group C.

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.

Tottenham: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli, Porto or RB Leipzig.

In the round of 32, the four third-place finishers with the best records in the UEFA Champions League group stage will be seeded along with the 12 UEFA Europa League group winners.

But with the January transfer window opening in less than four weeks, a host of Premier League scouts will have been more occupied with casting their eyes over European football's brightest talents. The last 16 games will be played on the 13th, 14th, 20th and 21st of February and the second legs will be played on the 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th of March.
