Champions League: teams classified to eighth, groups, options and when is the draw

After the last day of the group stage on Tuesday solved the last two unknowns, in terms of the second classified of the groups B and D, where Atlético and Real Madrid were framed respectively, this Wednesday doubts are dissipating in groups E, where Barça is; F, in which Villarreal is framed; G, with the presence of Sevilla; and H. The three Spanish teams fight, as Atlético de Madrid did yesterday (they passed as second, with his triumph in Do Dragao), for being in eighths (The draw will be held on Monday, December 13 at 12:00 hours), since Real Madrid was already classified and got as first with his victory against Inter.

What is decided today and what should Barça, Sevilla and Villarreal do?

Group E

The second place between Barcelona and Benfica. Xavi’s men will be in the second round if they win or if they don’t and Benfica don’t beat Dinamo Kiev. At the moment, Barcelona is on its way to the Europa League because of Bayern’s precision in scoring Müller, Sané and Musiala. Benfica’s victory against Dinamo Kiev also breaks the other premise that placed the Blaugranas in the round of 16. The Ukrainians missed a clear chance and then the Portuguese went ahead with goals from Yaremchuk and Gilberto.

Group F

Discontinued. In the absence of a schedule for this Thursday, Atalanta-Villarreal has been suspended due to snow. If it is played tomorrow, for now, the second place between Villarreal and Atalanta.

Group G

Everything to be decided. All four teams can pass or stay out. In short, they all depend on themselves. Winning gives them the pass and losing leaves them out. Not even Lille has any chance of falling through. But the tie is worth it, just like Salzburg. Sevilla and Wolfsburg will only be in the round of 16 if they win. For now, el Lille would go to the round of 16 thanks to the three points that are on the way to adding. The victory puts Salzburg into the round of 16 as Sevilla would stay in third place with this 1-0. Wolfsburg would be eliminated from Europe, but if they come back they will send the Hispanics out of continental football.

Man. United Villarreal or Atalanta
Lille, Salzburg, Seville or Wolfsburg Lille, Salzburg, Seville or Wolfsburg
Chelsea or Juventus Juventus or Chelsea

In the absence of the matches at stake, Real Madrid could face two of the coconuts from the second pot: Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea. The other possible rival for the whites will be the Sporting from Portugal in addition to the second to leave group G, unless it is Sevilla. At halftime, it is RB Salzburg. Atlético de Madrid and Inter cannot fall as they are from the same country and the same group.

To the Athletic they could touch him Manchester City, Ajax, Juventus, Bayern or Manchester United in addition to the first to come out of group G. At the moment, it is Lille. Real Madrid and Liverpool could not be their rivals as they are from the same country and have coincided in the group stage.

When is the draw for the eighth of the Champions League?

The UEFA Champions League round of 16 draw will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Monday 13 December at 12:00. The so-called rule of the value of the goals in the opposite field has been eliminated, so if the qualifiers end tied after 180 minutes they will go to extra time regardless of the number of goals scored by each team at home and away. If the teams do not tie the tie after the extra 30 minutes, they will go to the penalty shoot-out.
