Real Madrid faces tough draw in Champions League Monday

Share

Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham all won on a historic Champions League night for English football.

The Champions League group stage has come to a close and the winners and losers have been determined.

Manchester City: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Basel, Real Madrid, Spartak Moscow, Sevilla, Porto or RB Leipzig.

And, with Liverpool having booked their place in the knockout stage as group winners, England has become the first country to have five teams qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League.

With Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Real Madrid all failing to win their respective groups, it means one of them could now be drawn against another top-tier club in Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Any of these four teams are rivals of maximum difficulty, especially considering that Real Madrid will have to play the second leg away from the Santiago Bernabéu, Real Madrid's stadium.

So, it was fitting that the tennis champion took to social media to crowd source opinions from fellow moms about breastfeeding. The fourth new building going up will be a parking garage that "celebrates the sporting heritage of New York City".

"For now it's time to focus on the Premier League, on the Carabao Cup and FA Cup that we will start in January, and when the Champions League is back in February we will see how we are". "For this reason I think it could be problematic to win (the Champions League)".

Conte says Chelsea fear no-one in Europe's elite club competition, but reckons the strength in depth of the domestic league makes winning the European Cup hard for English clubs.

Four teams have transferred to the UEFA Europa League round of 32 after finishing third in their UEFA Champions League groups.

Conte reckons it will take a special effort to be crowned Europe's top dog, despite beating the odds in the Premier League last season. This victory allowed the Catalans to reach the knockout stage of the tournament with first place in the group.

Accordingly, both the sides are aware of the club they could potentially be up against in the final 16.
