United reach UEFA Champions League Last 16

This Tuesday, 16 teams in the UEFA Champions League played their final games of the group stage.

Juventus grabbed the group's second place with a 2-0 away victory over Olympiakos.

Azpilicueta also insisted Chelsea will embrace the prospect of a last-16 Champions League draw against Barcelona or Paris Saint-Germain after finishing second in their group. Furthermore, only four times in the last 14 years has a full complement of La Liga teams reached the last 16.

The Reds have also qualified for the knockout phase for the 17th time in this our 21st Champions League group stage campaign.

Roma knew they would go through from Group C with a win, which they got, although they could only edge out Qarabag of Azerbaijan 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico with a Diego Perotti effort in the second half.

House of Cards production to resume without Spacey
The show had just started filming of season six when the allegations first surfaced, but Netflix chose to shutdown the set. Netflix Chief Content Office Ted Sarandos told a conference Monday of the decision, Variety reported.

Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas are amongst the opposition that Chelsea can face, but Azpilicueta isn't too anxious about his side's second-placed finish.

Celtic secured the Europa League spot in the group despite losing 1-0 at home to Anderlecht, on a Jozo Simunovic own goal. On the other hand, Italy's A.S. Roma has advanced to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.

Coming off a devastating loss at home to Juventus in Serie A, the Partenopei must win at Feyenoord tomorrow and hope Manchester City beats Shakhtar Donetsk in Group F.

The draw for the last 16 takes place next Tuesday.

These restrictions are removed ahead of the quarter-finals.
