Champions League last 16 taking shape ahead of Monday draw

Jeremie Frimpong 'one of best kids I've seen', says Celtic boss Neil Lennon

As it stands 14 clubs have already qualified for the last 16, meaning just two more sides across Europe will be determined on Wednesday night.

Just over six months after lifting the trophy, Juergen Klopp's Liverpool find themselves still needing a point in a tricky trip on Tuesday to RB Salzburg, who have everything to play for.

It was a performance that demonstrated the European expertise that has taken them to the past two Champions League finals and, Robertson insisted, the confidence to make it a hat-trick at the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul in May.

"Our squad is full of quality and unfortunately for Naby this season, he has picked up an injury which has kept him out a bit and he came back and the midfield has done so well", said Robertson.

This would have paid out in four of PSG's Champions League fixtures this season, including both in Paris, whilst Galatasaray's record of just one goal scored hardly inspires confidence in the Turkish side. We kept the ball and kept the clean sheet.

As a seeded team, Liverpool will play the first leg away from home and the second leg at Anfield. Ajax now sit at the top of Group H, while Valencia are two points behind in second.

They are joined by Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as runners-up of Group H and B respectively, with the former squeezing through thanks to a 2-1 win over Lille.

'Last year - and the year before - we were excellent in the knockout stages and we controlled games but we know that now we are the champions, everyone wants to beat us.

His review will likely wrap up in the spring or summer of next year, during the height of Trump's re-election campaign. Attorney John Durham issued a statement disputing his conclusions on the FBI's probe of the Trump campaign.

Juventus condemned Bayer Leverkusen to a 2-0 defeat at the BayArena for a fifth win at the top of Group D.

The Italians needed to match or better Dortmund's result against Slavia Prague in order to progress but their loss coupled with the Germans' 2-1 win ensured a disappointing end to their UCL campaign.

Meanwhile, Lyon went through in dramatic fashion in Group G, coming from behind to draw 2-2 with RB Leipzig.

Lyon know a win at home to Leipzig will see them through, but a draw could be enough if Zenit lose at Benfica. We did not get the respect we deserved.

The side from the Donbass region of Ukraine will advance with Pep Guardiola's men if they beat Atalanta, a draw would suffice if Dinamo fail to beat City. He has added to our options and that is what we need to create. Now, we know we are respected in Europe.

Inter then missed chances to score a second and Ansu Fati showed them the way, the substitute netting an 86th-minute victor to stun the home side and become the youngest ever goalscorer in the Champions League at 17 years and 40 days.

Olympiacos secured Europa League football following a 1-0 win over Red Star Belgrade at the Karaiskakis Stadium also in Group B.
