Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham have all secured their place in the next round as group winners. It was the adventure of Ismaily, their left-back, that proved decisive; his goal, Shakhtar's second, owed in part to an ill-judged charge from his goal by Ederson but the Brazilian kept a cool head and it was a contribution that summed up a performance full of vigour and verve from his team.

Napoli will also fancy their chances of making it to the latter stages of the competition after missing out on a place in the Champions League Round of 16 to Shakthar Donetsk.

When is the Champions League Round of 16 draw?

"I wouldn't say it was a failure, because we knew this could happen".

"We must be ready".

"It is a fantastic competition". Atletico Madrid will be the team everyone wants to avoid while a trip to Moscow to play CSKA or Lokomotiv in sub-zero temperatures wouldn't be welcome.

They doubled their advantage 20 minutes into the second half when Dimitri Oberlin headed home from close range, and that was enough to condemn the Portuguese to a sixth successive defeat. Neymar alone has scored six goals in Europe already - the mere sight of the blond Brazilian would petrify most teams.

"We are Chelsea, we are a big team like them. Everything bad we can make into a positive". The games decided the fates of many teams.

"It's not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea", said the attacker.

Real Madrid progressed in second place after beating Dortmund 3-2 at the Bernabeu Stadium.

"So, I'd be looking at it the other way".

They were defensively great, controlled the midfield battle and had every Chelsea defender in knots whenever they attacked.

However, Frank Lampard, who was in Chelsea's title-winning team of 2012, believes his former team could rue their profligacy against Atletico.

How does the Champions League Round of 16 draw work?

Atletico manager Diego Simeone, meanwhile, did have regrets about their campaign.

Chelsea have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons to dominate the English top flight. Anderlecht, despite the win, are eliminated.
