This is how the drums are for the eighth: classified, eliminated and accounts

The last day of the group stage this Tuesday has solved the last two unknowns that were to be resolved, in terms of the second classified of groups B and D, where Atlético and Real Madrid respectively were framed. Good news for the Spanish. Madrid gets in as first, with his victory against Inter, and Atlético as second, with its triumph at Do Dragao and Liverpool’s triumph in Milan, for the draw for eighths to be held on Monday, December 13 at 12:00.

How are the drums set up right now?

The first of the group are guaranteed their status as heads of series. Group stage closed in groups A, B, C and D, Manchester City, Liverpool, Ajax and Real Madrid are in pot A next to Manchester United and Bayern. It would only be necessary to know if Chelsea or Juventus will be seeded by Group H and Lille, Salzburg, Seville or Wolfsburg, for Group G. The only two determining factors in the round of 16 draw is that the teams that have been framed in the same group in the group stage cannot face each other, nor the teams from the same country.

Klopp’s men traced the match in San siro and Atlético fulfilled in Do Dragao. The Port in the end he got into the Europa League and the rossoneri they were left out of Europe. Now Atlético has on the horizon Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Manchester United or Ajax already confirmed among his possible rivals, of which two are not yet known.

The UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday 13 December at 12:00.
