However, it may prove a bit difficult. The clubs are assured of avoiding teams from the same country and also those that they have met in the previous round, which means at least one of them may run into another top club.

The other clubs in the fray are Ajax of Netherlands, Bayern Munich of Germany, Italy’s Juventus, LOSC Lille of France, Spani’s Atletico Madrid, Portugal’s Benfica, Inter Milan of Italy, Paris Saint-Germain of France, Salzburg of Austria, Sporting CP of Portugal and Villarreal of Spain.

The big difference this year from last year is doing away with the away goal rule.

With no away goal rule, if ties are level after 180 minutes, teams will have to go to extra time irrespective of the number of goals each team has scored at home and away. If the teams still cannot be separated after the additional 30 minutes, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out.

Saint Petersburg’s Gazprom Arena will stage the final of the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League, with the game scheduled for May 28, 2022.

Attentions will focus on the Champions League this morning for the much-anticipated last-16 draw.

Manchester United and Manchester City are among four Premier League teams who are set to discover their first knock-out stage opponents in the marquee European competition this season.

Cristiano Ronaldo inspired United to top spot in Group F as the Old Trafford giants edged out Villarreal and Italian side Atalanta, while final-game opponents Young Boys finished bottom of the pile – even after victory over United during their September curtain-raiser.

As for City, meanwhile, they played out two thrilling games against PSG to emerge as Group A winners.

Liverpool won six from six and Chelsea finished as runners-up to Juventus in their group. Of course, UCL rules mean there can’t be any all-English ties at this stage of the competition anyway.

With teams from the same nation kept apart at this stage, the prospects of a third all-English Final in four seasons appear to be growing even more strong.

The UEFA Champions League group stage concluded this week, meaning we now know all 16 teams who have qualified for the competition’s last-16. Chelsea’s campaign ended on Wednesday, when a late equaliser by Zenit St Petersburg in a 3-3 draw in Russia, combined with Juventus’ win over Malmo, resulted in us finishing second in Group H.

All eight ties in the first knockout round will be determined when the Champions League round of 16 draw takes place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday 13 December. The draw will start at 11am UK time and can be watched live on UEFA’s website and BT Sport.

The eight group winners and eight runners up who qualify for the round of 16 have all now been decided. The teams who booked their place in this stage are:

Group winners (seeded): Ajax, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Liverpool, Lille, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid

Runners up (unseeded): Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Salzburg, Sporting Lisbon, Villarreal

The Blues have one of the shortest lists of potential opponents. Having finished second in our group we are unseeded, but cannot face the winners of our own group or any of the other English teams, all three of which are seeded.

That leaves us with four possible last-16 opponents – Ajax, Bayern Munich, Lille and Real Madrid.

The last-16 matchdays are spread out over two weeks for each leg. The seeded teams who won their group will be at home in the second leg.

The first legs will take place on 15, 16, 22 and 23 February 2022. The second legs are scheduled for 8, 9, 15 and 16 March 2022. All kick-offs will be at 8pm UK time.

No. In a change to the regulations from previous seasons, the away goals rule has been scrapped will no longer be in effect for two-legged knockout ties in the Champions League.
