Teams from the same group or national association can not be drawn against one another, so, for example, Manchester United can not be drawn against the likes of Manchester City.

United were off to a flier on their return to Europe's premier event and had maintained a ideal record until matchday five when they were beaten 1-0 by Basel.

However, teams from the same groups can not face each other, while teams from the same country can not take on one another either.

Chelsea winger Willian has claimed that the club have to focus on the Premier League and domestic cups after their disappointment in the Champions League.

Considering their blistering start to the Premier League season, Manchester City's European escapades have been even more impressive.

The draw for the round of 16 takes place at UEFA's headquarters in Nyom in Switzerland on Monday.

Thirty-two teams have been whittled down to 16 for the second-round draw, which takes place shortly after the conclusion of the final group games.

The move has sparked global outrage and protests across the world with U.S. embassies targeted by demonstrators. Dozens of protesters were injured in clashes on Thursday.

However, that will change for the quarter-final draw, which will be an open draw.

Chelsea: Barcelona, Besiktas, Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Napoli, Porto or RB Leipzig.

Today, we'll look at the best-and-worse case scenario for United's draw in the round of 16. The Bianconeri have been struggling to live up to their high standards this season and have been surprisingly vulnerable at the back, while the likes of Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain haven't been firing either.

The Premier League has set a new record as all five of its representatives in this season's Champions League qualified for the knockout stages.

Roma: Bayern Munich, FC Basel, FC Porto, Real Madrid, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk.

"We have to show to deserve to fight until the end for the title".
