Champions League: Roma beat Chelsea to top spot

Joshua Kimmich – clubs linked Manchester City

The eight Champions League teams who finished third in their groups earned the consolation prize of a place in UEFA's second-tier competition with two-time finalists Atletico Madrid among the biggest of the lot.

As of today, Barcelona's most likely opponent in the last 16 stage of the Champions League it's Chelsea. Why? I think a failure is when you have an objective and you don't reach it, and we knew this could happen, so it is not a failure for us.

In the round of 16, teams can not be drawn against sides who they faced in the group stages.

Premier League giants Manchester United and Italians Juventus were among the sides to advance to the knockout round of the Champions League Tuesday following victories on the final matchday while Atletico Madrid were eliminated after being held at Chelsea. The number of English sides finishing at the top of their group, means that Chelsea only have a few options when it comes round to the draw.

IRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) Moves On Citigroup Initiation. How Much Are Shares Worth?
Following the transaction, the chief financial officer now owns 90,656 shares of the company's stock, valued at $6,036,783.04. The stock of iRobot Corporation (NASDAQ:IRBT) has "Market Perform" rating given on Friday, September 18 by Raymond James.

Chelsea will join them in the last 16, but ended up second in their group behind Roma.

If Liverpool do secure top spot that makes things even trickier for Chelsea.

Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring and Corentin Tolisso struck twice as Bayern Munich fell just short of topping Group B with a 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain at the Allianz Arena. Barca are also restricted in terms of who they can face in the last-16 as they cannot be drawn against fellow Spanish sides Real Madrid or Sevilla - or Juventus, who they shared a group with. If Mauricio Pochettino can keep Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen fit and firing, Tottenham could match their famous run to the quarter-finals in 2011, at least.

Which teams are through to the Champions League Round of 16 stage? Group winners will be away in the first legs.
