Stiff competition for A-League sides in Asian Champions League group stage

Manchester City v SSC Napoli- UEFA Champions League

Paris Saint-Germain youngster, Kylian Mbappe has set a new Champions League record.

FC Basel are also through, defeating Benfica 2-0 to finish second in Group A. That means Chelsea can not play Roma.

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

Since the Champions League reverted back to a one group stage format for the 2003-04 season, the Premier League has been allocated four Champions League places, but only on six occasions in the previous 14 years has a full complement of English teams succeeded in qualifying for the next stage.

Juventus and Basel also completed their passage to the next round, joining Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City, Tottenham, Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain and Roma who qualified as group winners, and Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Basel as runners-up, reports Efe.

It means Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham all won their groups, while Chelsea came second in Group C.

Teams that already met in the same group or are from the same country can not be drawn against each other on Monday.
