The Champions League is one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world with plenty of teams participating in the tournament, but only 16 teams remaining after qualification from the group stage.

It was a huge surprise to see the likes of Manchester City and especially Manchester United getting knocked out from the competition due to their inconsistent performances. There are still a number of quality sides in the tournament and could face a difficult task ahead.

Most of the groups have been tightly contested, and it showed the quality in all the teams which have qualified for the Champions League. There are still a number of big-name clubs present in the tournament, and the draw for the Round of 16 is likely to be quite important.

The rules of the draw is that for this stage, winners of the group take on runners-up from the groups with teams of the same nationality or who have faced earlier in the group stage are kept apart.

Group Winners

Arsenal, Inter Milan, APOEL, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Benfica, Chelsea

Group Runners-Up

Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan, Olympique Marseille, Zenit St. Petersburg, CSKA Moscow, Basle, Napoli, Lyon
