Champions League 2018-19 round of 16 teams
With the 2018-19 group stage matches of the Champions League officially done and dusted, we take a look at all the teams to have qualified for the round of 16 of the marquee tournament. The premier league sees the most representation in the knock-out stages of the tournament with all the four sides in the group stages progressing to the next round.
It wasn’t an all easy sailing though for Liverpool and Tottenham who left their qualification till the last day. Needing improbable results to seal their fate in the next stage, both teams pulled off the impossible to add their names to the Champions League 2018-19 round of 16 teams.
The last stage of the group stages also had the first place position at stake for teams, a position which puts them in a favourable spot for the round of 16 draw. Juventus, PSG and Borussia Dortmund all came out of matchday 6 as group toppers from their side to book a place in Pot A of the next stage draw.
For the lower ranked teams, the culminating matchday of the group stages round offered an opportunity to play in the Europa League. The added incentive to end their Champions League campaign saw high chance matches being contested with Valencia, Viktoria Plzen, Napoli and Inter Milan all added to the Europa League’s competition for the 2018-19 season where they will join teams in the round of 32 draw.
The Champions League 2018-19 round of 16 teams will now participate in a draw scheduled for 17 December, Monday which will give us the round of 16 fixtures. The first leg of the next round will be played on 13/14/20/21 February with the second leg slated for 6/7/13/14 March.
- Two pots are formed: one consisting of group winners and the other of runners-up.
- No team can play a club from their group or any side from their own association in this round of fixtures.
