UCL Round Of 16 Draw (December 11, 2017 @ 12noon) by Sanchez01: 9:51am On Dec 06, 2017


Manchester United, Chelsea, Man City, Tottenham and Liverpool are all confident of reaching the last-16 of the competition following a strong opening from each Premier League side so far.

Some teams have had it easier than others up to this point, but the knockout stages will be the real rest of their mettle as Europe's best sides focus their attentions on the ultimate prize in European club football.

When and where is the draw?

The draw will take place in Nyon, Switzerland on December 11. The ceremony is scheduled to start at 11am GMT.

Key points

a. There will be two seeding pots: one of the group winners, and the other of runners-up.

b. No team can play a club from their group or from their own association - that means Premier League clubs avoid each other until the quarter-final stages, should any of them get that far.

c. The seeded group winners will be the away team in the first legs on 13-14 and 20-21 February, and have home advantage in the second legs on 6-7 and 13-14 March.

What to know...

Five English Teams will make it through to the round of 16 stage.

Potential opponents for British teams

Manchester United (Group A winners): Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid.

Chelsea (Group C runners-up): Paris St-Germain, Barcelona or Besiktas.

Liverpool (Group E winners): Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid.

Manchester City (Group F winners): Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Real Madrid.

Tottenham (Group H winners): Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk or Porto.

Chelsea's odds of facing either PSG or Barcelona is very high. Manchester United would likely end up with Bayern Munich, Juventus and, or Real Madrid

My Prediction: Manchester United might not be privileged to get a soft landing as a likely pairing with the Bayern Munich, Juventus and Real Madrid cannot be brushed aside. Fate would smile on Mourinho if Sevilla tops Group E/ when his team is paired with Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto/Leipzig.

Chelsea, on the other hand, is in one hell of a mess. Should Liverpool come out top of Group E, chances of The Blues would drastically be limited to PSG, Barcelona and Besiktas.

Either way, the five English teams, might be reduced to just two en route the QF phase.

No disrespect but Real Madrid, Barcelona, and PSG remain strong favourite of winning this season's Champions League. Other teams are superb in their rights but it would take a whole lot more than 1-1/1-0 games to beat stronger opponents from the RO16 phase upward.

cheesy cheesy

Mourinho might do well against a highly defensive side like Juventus; score one goal at the Old Trafford and park bus for the rest of the game and then in Turin.

For Bayern Munich... grin grin grin

Manchester United…

Potential opponents: Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid. Jose Mourinho’s side won their group comfortably, but unfortunately for the Red Devils that’s no guarantee of an easy ride in the next phase. Real Madrid are clearly the team to avoid, while Bayern Munich and Juventus would be very tricky. grin grin grin

Chelsea…

Potential opponents: Paris St-Germain, Barcelona or Besiktas. Chelsea were the one English side who failed to top their group. They finished behind Roma, but did manage to squeeze out Atletico Madrid. PSG will be one to avoid, with the French champions having knocked them out at the Round of 16 stage on their last two appearances in the competition. Obviously Barcelona would be a nightmare. So fingers crossed for Besiktas!

Liverpool…

Potential opponents: Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto or Real Madrid. Liverpool had perhaps the most trouble qualifying, yet ultimately finished top of their group. Jurgen Klopp will be wanting to avoid Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

Potential opponents: Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Real Madrid. No team will want to play Manchester City, particularly after their 2-1 win over Manchester United at the weekend. Pep Guardiola’s team currently look unstoppable.

Tottenham…

Potential opponents: Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk or Porto. Unlike the other group winners from the Premier League, Real Madrid are not an option for Tottenham. That’s because they emerged from the same group, with Spurs even humiliating the reigning champions at Wembley. On that basis, Tottenham will feel confident whoever they play.

The 2018 final is due to be played at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev. An impressive arena that seats 70,000 and hosted the final of Euro 2012.

The odds are bound to change depending on what happens this morning, but currently PSG are the favourites among the bookmakers.

Considering they’ve never won the tournament, it seems the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have swayed the bookies in their favour.

Second favourites are Man City – another team who have never won the competition.

Real Madrid – the winners in 2016 and 2017 – are third. Of the Premier League teams, Liverpool are the least fancied.

Alan Shearer has revealed the two Premier League sides he thinks can go furthest in the competition – Manchester United and Man City.

‘We [the Premier League] once again have teams and — more importantly — coaches who can put us back on top again,’ he told The Sunn.

‘The two who have the best chance of doing that are Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola, who both have two Champions League titles. ‘For me, Pep’s City look our best bet. To win this trophy you need something a bit special.’

Pictures just in of the Uefa president, Aleksander Ceferin. The reason he doesn’t look very excited is that he’s in Bulgaria, and thus about 1,700km away from where the action is. This looks to me like a serious diary malfunction.

Uefa’s deputy general secretary, Giorgio Marchetti, is introduced. He’s going to be in charge of the actual draw, and he also sends best wishes from the absent Ceferin: “He wishes the best of luck to the teams that have reached this stage of the competition.”

“It is absolutely impossible to predict the two teams that will take part in the final,” he says. It isn’t, though, not really. It’s only quite difficult. Let’s not go overboard here.
Re: UCL Round Of 16 Draw (December 11, 2017 @ 12noon) by Sanchez01: 12:10pm On Dec 11, 2017
Marchetti introduces a glamorous assistant, in the shape of Xabi Alonso.

Xabi thinks the number of English clubs in the draw “is great news”. “Now the big teams are coming,” he warns. He has now taken draw position.
