Who could Premier League teams draw in the Champions League?

Share

Antonio Conte's side are in third place in the Premier League table but are 11 points behind current leaders Manchester City as the west London side look to defend their top-flight crown.

Going into the final set of fixtures on Wednesday, there were still four places up for grabs, and they were taken by Liverpool, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and FC Porto.

Recall that the results of Tuesday's matches decided the next participants of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League - "Barcelona", "Bavaria", "Besiktas", Manchester city, PSG, real Madrid, Tottenham and Chelsea have added "Basel", "Juventus", "Roma" and "Manchester United".

Having been on the receiving end of a lot of ire from the fraternity for their non-show in European competitions, all the five English clubs have made it through to the next round of the competition. The seeded teams will be drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams scheduled to play the second leg of the tie at home.

"For now it's time to focus on the Premier League, on the Carabao Cup and FA Cup that we will start in January, and when the Champions League is back in February we will see how we are".

As such, the Blues will now get a more hard draw in the next round of the competition.

Conte reckons it will take a special effort to be crowned Europe's top dog, despite beating the odds in the Premier League last season.

"No, we are not happy", The Evening Standard report he said when asked about finishing second in the Champions League group. The Bundesliga is a one- or two-horse race every year, La Liga has two, maybe clubs three vying for titles and PSG and Juventus have dominated Ligue 1 and Serie A recently.

While North London rivals Arsenal have faced a joyless slog through Europa League Group H, Spurs have had a Champions League group stage to remember. Everton, though, failed to reach the group stages, losing in controversial fashion to Villarreal in the third qualifying phase.
