Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

Last season's runners-up Juventus would have expected to have qualified before the final matchday when they were drawn in Group D alongside Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon and Olympiakos, but they head to Athens on Tuesday still needing a win to definitely progress.

Powered by a front three of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, PSG had set a group-stage record of 24 goals before kick-off at the Allianz Arena, but were comfortably seen off by the five-time champions despite holding on to seal top spot in Group B.

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. Atletico, losing finalists to Real Madrid in 2014 and 2016, were ultimately made to pay for two draws against Champions League debutants Qarabag, after both Roma and Chelsea saw off the Azeris twice.

The four teams to have secured second spot on Tuesday were Basel, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Juventus.

That means Chelsea can not draw Roma, Manchester United can not be drawn to play against Basel and Tottenham will not be up against their Group H opponents Real Madrid.

If Liverpool do secure top spot that makes things even trickier for Chelsea.

Chelsea: Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Besiktas, Spartak Moscow or Sevilla.

Depending on how results fall tomorrow night, Shakhtar Donetsk could be replaced by Serie A giants, which would be a much more menacing proposition for United, while Porto could be replaced by Red Bull Leipzig and a Spartak Moscow victory over Liverpool at Anfield would fire the Russian club into the final 16.
