UCL: Juve, United, Roma secure round of 16 spots; Atletico crash out

  • No Premier League club has lifted the Champions League since Chelsea in 2012

Manchester United are three points ahead of Basel and CSKA Moscow in group A. The Red Devils will host the Russian side at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Chelsea's 1-1 home draw with Atletico Madrid proved costly as Roma took advantage to top Group C.

Anderlecht can not sit back and defend and it is about time that Celtic - without a win in their last six Champions League games at Celtic Park - gave their home fans something to cheer about in European competition.

Manchester City and Tottenham were already assured of first place heading into their final group games on Wednesday.

Manchester City are now top of Group F and as it stands will face Basel (20), Bayern Munich (4), *Juventus (5), *Sevilla (7), *Porto (12) or *Real Madrid (1).

Leipzig, who are level on points with Porto, host group victor Besiktas Wednesday and will only go through if they secure more points than the Portuguese team. The Parisians won the first game against Bayern 3-0, and the Bundesliga team will have to win by a four-goal margin to finish top. PSG beat Bayern 3-0 in Paris and has a far superior goal difference. Sevilla only need to draw with Maribor in Slovenia to qualify for the knockout stage, and would go through as group winners if they win and Liverpool slip up.

None of the three Italian clubs in the competition have advanced yet, setting up a nail-biting finish to the group phase that is drawing comparisons with Italy's World Cup playoff loss to Sweden. Coming off a devastating loss at home to Juventus in Serie A, the Partenopei must win at Feyenoord on Wednesday and hope Manchester City beats Shakhtar Donetsk in Group F.

Roma can also go through with a win against Qarabag in Group C on Tuesday, or if Atletico Madrid fails to beat Chelsea.

A plucky 2-0 win against Roma two weeks ago kept Diego Simeone's Atletico in contention going into the last round of matches, but victory for Roma over Azeri debutants Qarabag at the Stadio Olimpico would see the three-time finalists eliminated.

Amid sluggish ticket sales, Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco has been urging fans to show up at the Stadio Olimpico.

They progressed second behind Group D winners Barcelona, who won 2-0 at home to Sporting courtesy of a late own goal from their former defender Jeremy Mathieau and Francisco Alcacer's opener.

The Champions League has been a good place for Roma this season and they have nearly secured their place in the next round.
