Can English teams play each other in the Champions League Round of 16?

Elsewhere, Chelsea and Manchester United will also be out to finish top of their groups, while in Group B Bayern Munich take on Paris Saint-Germain with top spot up for grabs. Atletico, who have lost two of the last four finals to city rivals Real Madrid, have to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to have any chance, having lost the reverse fixture 2-1.

They remain undefeated in Group F and will qualify as group winners no matter what happens this week.

It hasn't been the season most expected from Juve in Italy or in the Champions League.

The draw for the Champions League last 16 knock-out stage will take place on Monday 11 December in Nyon, Switzerland.

Group D: Barcelona vs.

Manchester United is Group A's likely victor, three points ahead and with enough of a goal difference lead over Basel and CSKA Moscow.

Germany's fourth team, Hoffenheim, didn't make the group stage after losing in the playoffs to Liverpool.

Atletico didn't win any of its first four matches in Group C. Among its setbacks were back-to-back draws against Qarabag. Filling out the rest of the bracket and who takes four of the eight group victor spots is still in play.

Meanwhile, Celtic with 3 points and a winless Anderlecht will be fighting for the third place. Sevilla can win Group E with a win if Liverpool fails to defeat Spartak Moscow at home.

If Roma win and Chelsea do not, Roma win the group. They'd need a result at Liverpool with Sevilla at already eliminated Maribor.

While Manchester City are already through, they can afford to have one eye on Sunday's encounter at Old Trafford.

Chelsea will secure top spot with victory against Atletico tonight or if Roma fail to win.

Sporting have to win at Barcelona in order to qualify and will reach the last 16 if they win and Juventus do not.

Juventus, a finalist in two of the last three seasons, can go through with a win at Olympiakos in Group D on Tuesday or if Sporting Lisbon fails to beat Barcelona.

If Liverpool lose they are out unless Sevilla are also beaten.

Liverpool, like the Manchester clubs, face a massive derby game the weekend with Everton and Klopp win want to ensure that the focus remains on the job at hand on Wednesday.

Man City have qualified as winners of Group F.

Should Spurs avoid defeat to APOEL, they will top their group and be seeded in the round of 16. Once again, the schedule doesn't give us the head-to-head with Leipzig hosting Besiktas and Porto at home to the already eliminated Monaco.

Another potential Primeira Liga success story might play out in Group G. Besiktas has already won the group with Porto and RB Leipzig entering the final games tied on seven points.

Dortmund and APOEL are contesting third place. If the Italians lose, Atletico will be through, and if the Serie A side are held, both teams will finish on nine points.

Whether both teams win or lose the final ranking will depend on the number of goals scored and conceded in the last two matches.
