PSG? Barca? Hazard not afraid of any Champions League opponent for Chelsea

PSG? Barca? Hazard not afraid of any Champions League opponent for Chelsea

That is bad news for Antonio Conte's side, who could be pitted against Champions League heavyweights including Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain in next week's last 16 draw. It was a depressing evening for both clubs at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

There was also something to cheer for Nigerian striker Henry Onyekuru as his Belgian club exited Europe with their heads high as they beat Celtic 1-0 in Glasgow.

Elsewhere, Roma recorded a 1-0 win over Qarabag at the Stadio Olimpico.

At Old Trafford, Manchester United sealed their place at the top of Group A by beating CSKA Moscow 2-1 with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the 64th and 66th minute, respectively.

The eight Champions League teams who finished third in their groups earned the consolation prize of a place in UEFA's second-tier competition with two-time finalists Atletico Madrid among the biggest of the lot.

Christensen should have equalised from a Cesc Fabregas cross 10 minutes later, but the Chelsea defender somehow headed wide of the open goal. Diego Simeone's team will drop down into the Europa League knockout stages.

Chelsea will join them in the last 16, but ended up second in their group behind Roma.

Concealed Weapon Reciprocity Act Headed to the Senate
Kelley, should have had his name and domestic violence conviction submitted to the National Criminal Information Center database. It now heads to the Senate, where it'll be more of an uphill battle given the 60-vote threshold.

Former Blues midfielder Lampard believes Chelsea have the chance to build some momentum in the title race with their last-16 spot in the Champions League secured.

Sporting will continue with the Europa League while Olympiakos are eliminated.

Leipzig lost to Group G winners Besiktas on Wednesday night, leaving them three points off second-placed Porto and therefore out of the Champions League.

Manchester United: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Shakhtar Donetsk.

First legs will take place on February 13/14 and 20/21, with the second legs coming on March 6/7 and 13/14.

Also, no side can be drawn against a team they played in the group phase.
