CSKA Moscow and Qarabag out of UEFA Champions League

The round of 32 draw takes place on Monday and will be streamed live in UEFA.com's DrawCentre from 13:00CET.

Cesar Azpilicueta is aiming to put the disappointment of Chelsea's failure to top their Champions League group behind him and focus on the Blues' domestic commitments.

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

Since the Champions League reverted back to a one group stage format for the 2003-04 season, the Premier League has been allocated four Champions League places, but only on six occasions in the previous 14 years has a full complement of English teams succeeded in qualifying for the next stage.

But Rodgers has also overseen the club's heaviest European defeat, 7-0 in Barcelona last season, and heaviest home loss, a 5-0 reverse to PSG that preceded the 7-1 hammering at the Parc des Princes. Sporting drop into the Europa League.

Atletico Madrid, finalists in two of the past four years, crashed out of Group C despite Saul Niguez heading home the opening goal at Chelsea on 56 minutes.

Amid sluggish ticket sales, Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco has been urging fans to show up at the Stadio Olimpico. The results meant that the Italian side rose to the top of the group and Antonio Conte's side had to settle for second spot.

As recently as March we asked why EPL clubs suck so badly in the Champions League. "These situations, apart from the frustration of not being in the next round, will help the team move forward and onto the Europa League", Simeone told beIN Sports Spain.

Having already secured first place in Group D, Barca rested Argentine star Lionel Messi as they faced Sporting CP at the Camp Nou, defeating the Portuguese side with a goal from Paco Alcacer and another when Sporting CP's former Barcelona man Jeremy Mathieu scored an own goal on Tuesday.

Juventus won 2-0 at Greek champions Olympiakos, but still finished three points behind Barcelona in the standings.

Liverpool crushed Spartak Moscow on Wednesday.

Leipzig still has a chance to progress on its European debut but needs a favour from Monaco at Porto in Group G. Leipzig, which is level on points with Porto, hosts group victor Besiktas on Wednesday and will only go through if it secures more points than the Portuguese team.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City have already progressed with a game to spare and Liverpool and Manchester United can make it five by securing their places over the next couple of days. Spurs earned a win and a draw over two-time reigning champion Real Madrid and twice beat Borussia Dortmund.
