Champions League scenarios: Head-to-head rule, who can qualify

Frank Lampard is calling on his players to be more clinical

Liverpool, which beat Tottenham in the title match in June to become European champion for the sixth time, toughed out a 2-0 victory at Salzburg to advance as the victor of Group E and stay on course in its defense of the trophy.

Naby Laye Keita headed Reds in front and Mohammed Salah made an exquisite finish for their second goal.

Chelsea was one of the teams to qualify from Group H after a 2-1 home victory over Lille under Frank Lampard, a Champions League victor with the London team in 2012 and in his first season as its manager.

"What a team. What an effort", Klopp said. "What an effort. It was a tough game".

19 - Red Star have conceded 19 goals in their five Champions League games this season, more than any other side. We could have scored six or seven which is insane. Only four players have scored two or more in three consecutive games - Giovane Elber (2001), Filippo Inzaghi (2002), Cristiano Ronaldo (2013, twice in 2017) and Lewandowski (2018).

Napoli ended a nine-match winless run in all competitions to reach the last sixteen after a first-half hat-trick from Arkadiusz Milik inspired a 4-0 win over Genk.

The Winger would ultimately go on to win five Ballon D'Ors throughout his career, including one at Manchester United the year later after leading them to a Champions League win for the first time since the Treble-winning season of 1999.

Who could the Premier League sides face?

The draw for the last 16 of the Champions League is done in line with a number of conditions. We knew it was a tough group.

"Salzburg was unbelievably strong, especially in the first half, but we as well were ready for that fight".

Carles Perez scored for Barca before Antonio Conte's men got an answer through Romelu Lukaku, but Inter could not find a victor in Italy.

Fati, aged 17 and 40 days old, came off the bench at the San Siro to score an 87th-minute victor and dump Italian giants Inter out the Champions League.

That record had been held since 1997 by Ghana's Peter Ofori-Quaye.

Dortmund eked out a 2-1 win against Slavia Prague to squeeze past Inter.

It was sloppy, and Lucien Favre's men basically asked the Czechs to stay in the game, but 10-man Borussia Dortmund is onto the Round of 16 after Jadon Sancho and Julian Brandt scored at the Westfalenstadion. A 2-2 draw at home to Leipzig proved enough to finish a point ahead of its two rivals.

Dutch striker Memphis Depay found the back of the net eight minutes from full-time after Houssem Aouar's superb second-half goal had reduced the deficit.

Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Valencia and RB Leipzig have also confirmed their spots as group winners while Lyon, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli and Real Madrid are through as runners-up.
