When is the Champions League last-16 draw?

Eight places in the Champions League's last 16 are still up for grabs heading into the last round of group games.

Barcelona, Besiktas, Manchester City and Tottenham are through as group winners, while Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Paris St-Germain have also qualified and could yet top their group.

How does the Champions League last 16 draw work?

Who can still qualify tonight or tomorrow?

The top two is decided by a three-way head-to-head.

None of the three Italian clubs in the competition have advanced yet, setting up a nail-biting finish to the group phase that is drawing comparisons with Italy's World Cup playoff loss to Sweden.

Both teams will face off at Old Trafford on Sunday and a win for United will see them cut the lead to five points. If Sporting fail to win, Juve go through regardless.

CSKA Moscow and Basel both have 9 points at this moment in time, and the final fixtures on Tuesday evening are tasty.

The foregone conclusion groups like PSG and Bayern in Group B haven't played out as regularly in 2017-18. PSG are now in first place so Bayern must win by a four-goal margin to go through top.

Anderlecht won 1-0 at Celtic but the Scottish side finished third in the group.

Antonio Conte's Blues still have plenty to play for too, as they need a win to guarantee top spot ahead of Roma.

Group C is still open, with Chelsea two points ahead of Roma and Atletico two points behind the Serie A club.

If Roma win and Chelsea do not, Roma win the group. If level on points, Atletico will qualify due to their better head-to-head record against Roma.

In Group D, the super club story hasn't held. Sporting have been rejuvenated in the last two seasons under Jorge Jesus, but face the daunting task of having to win at Barcelona to have any chance of ending a nine-year absence from the knockout stage.

Bayern needed just eight minutes to get their noses in front when Robert Lewandowski stabbed home after David Alaba had got his head to James Rodriguez's cross, and they increased their lead eight minutes before the break.

Bayern hosts Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday needing to win by a four-goal margin to progress as Group B victor.

"If they beat Manchester City this weekend, then they are in the race".
