FBL-EUR-C1-CHELSEA-ROMA

Heading for top spot? Chelsea are already through

Five-time winners Liverpool romped into the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday, while Shakhtar Donetsk, Porto and Sevilla also joined them in the knockout stage.

The eight teams dropping into the competition from the Champions League are ranked by their points total from the elite tournament and Celtic are not among the top four, who will be seeds.

Italian champions Juventus qualified from Group D after a 2-0 victory against Olympiakos in Greece, and Roma are through from Group C thanks to a 1-0 win at home to Qarabag. Real Madrid are also confirmed to finish second and will be joined by three more sides - now scheduled to be Sevilla, Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto.
