Champions League & Europa League draw: Arsenal, Man City, Leicester, Spurs, Man Utd await next opponents

Arsenal, Leicester City and Manchester City will represent England in the knockout stage of the Champions League – but who could each side face?

The draw takes place on Monday in Nyon, Switzerland, from 11:00 GMT, followed by the draw for the last 32 of the Europa League.

Who’s through to the Champions League last 16?

Winner – Runner-up
Group A Arsenal – PSG
Group B Napoli – Benfica
Group C Barcelona – Manchester City
Group D Atletico Madrid – Bayern Munich
Group E Monaco – Bayer Leverkusen
Group F Borussia Dortmund – Real Madrid
Group G Leicester – City Porto
Group H Juventus – Sevilla

The winner of each group will be drawn against a runner-up, but teams cannot face a side from their own nation in the last 16, or a club they met in the group stage.

Group winners will play the first leg away and the second leg at home.

Who can the English sides face?

Arsenal will be paired with one of: Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Benfica, Real Madrid, Porto, Sevilla.

Manchester City’s opponents will be one of: Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Monaco, Napoli.

Leicester City will face one of: Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich, Benfica, Paris St-Germain, Real Madrid, Sevilla.

Who went out?

Tottenham were the one English casualty, finishing third to secure a place in the Europa League.

Celtic, in the same group as Barcelona and Man City, finished bottom without a win and are out of European football for this season.

Besiktas and Dynamo Kiev may have been disappointed not to make it through a group that saw Napoli and Benfica progress.

And spare a thought for Club Brugge and Dinamo Zagreb, who finished on zero points, with the latter not managing a single goal.

Stats – Barcelona the pass masters

  • Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater now has six Champions League appearances, the same number as Argentina legend Diego Maradona made in the European Cup
  • Dortmund have scored 21 goals in this campaign, the most ever in the group stages.
  • Gianluigi Buffon missed his first Champions League game for Juventus since 2008. The veteran keeper was rested against Dinamo Zagreb.
  • Real Madrid have scored in their past 33 Champions League home matches, the longest streak in the competition.
  • Leicester City’s Ben Hamer is the first English goalkeeper to concede five goals on his Champions League debut.
  • CSKA Moscow have not kept a clean sheet in their past 28 Champions League games and their keeper Igor Akinfeev has not kept a clean sheet in the competition for 39 games.
  • Barcelona attempted 993 passes against Borussia Monchengladbach, a record in a Champions League game since 2003-04.
    Tottenham and Manchester United await Europa League draw

    Tottenham finished as one of the four best third-placed teams in the Champions League groups, meaning they will be seeded with the 12 Europa League group-stage winners for the last 32 of the Europa League when the draw is made on Monday, from 12:00 GMT.

    Because Manchester United finished second in Group A behind Fenerbahce, they are unseeded – joining the 11 other group runners-up and the four remaining Champions League third-placed teams
