Chelsea just fell behind AS Roma on head-to-head as they finished second in their group.

Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool & Spurs could all be drawn against the European heavyweights Real Madrid, Juventus & Bayern Munich after the latter 3 teams finished second in their respective groups.

While Chelsea could face a nighmare as they have a strong chance drawing one of Barcelona or PSG who ran out as the winners of their respective groups.
