Manchester United best and worst case scenario for Champions League knockout stage

Roma beat Chelsea to the top position after grinding out a 1-0 win over Qarabag, as Chelsea played a 1-1 draw with Atletico. The games decided the fates of many teams.

Liverpool claimed the final spot in the pot of group winners going into the Champions League last 16 draw.

Sadio Mane's second-half brace sandwiched Coutinho's third before Salah completed the rout. Firmino and Salah had to settle for a goal apiece. "If I've got a team that's topped the group, I'd be thinking, "Ah, we could draw Chelsea".

Serie A clubs are bidding to restore footballing pride in Italy after the national team's abject failure to qualify for the World Cup, with Roma and Juventus both doing their bit by reaching the knockout stage. Besiktas are unbeaten in the UEFA Champions League and even defeated RB Leipzig in Germany with their B team on Wednesday night.

Substitute Sergio Aguero converted City's stoppage-time consolation from the penalty spot after Fred's foul on Brahim Diaz.

Despite the defeat, Pep Guardiola's side are still one of the favourites to lift the trophy this season.

Nicolai Jorgensen headed Feyenoord level after Piotr Zielinski had volleyed Napoli into an early lead and Jerry St Juste headed the Dutch side's victor in added time, after they had Tonny Vilhena sent off for his second bookable offence. 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. The result meant Chelsea qualified as runners-up. Yacine Brahimi added a fourth for Porto, Kamil Glik scored for the visitors, only for Alex Telles to add a fourth for the home side.

Nicolao Alex Telles struck the home side's fourth and Tiquinho headed a late fifth after Radamel Falcao had made it 4-2. Borja Mayoral, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lucas Vasquez were on target for the European champions, while a brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not enough to earn BVB anything from their trip to the Spanish capital. Atletico coach Simeone, however, was relatively upbeat as he looked ahead to the Europa League.
