UCL: Here are the teams Man United & Man City could face in the round of 16 UCL: Here are the teams Man United & Man City could face in the round of 16

Manchester United and Manchester City have been afforded a rare luxury in the Champions League this season. Both teams have not only sealed progression to the knockout rounds with a game to spare, the Manchester giants have also qualified as group winners.

Liverpool, Ajax and Bayern Munich are the other teams who have already finished top of their respective groups. Meanwhile, first place is yet to be confirmed in Group D, Group G and Group H; though some clubs have progressed without confirming their final position.

Having edged out Villarreal and Atalanta in Group F, United won’t have to face those teams again, until at least the quarter final stage. Same applies to Man City who will avoid star-studded Paris Saint Germain in the round of 16.

In theory, by the time the group stage is completed, there will be seven potential opponents for United and City – but that will be reduced to six if Chelsea are pipped into top spot in Group H by Juventus. All-English ties are not possible until the quarter final stage.

Manchester United potential round of 16 opponents:

Group A: Paris Saint-Germain

Group B: Porto, AC Milan or Atletico Madrid

Group C: Sporting Lisbon, Borussia Dortmund

Group D: Real Madrid or Inter Milan

Group E: Barcelona, Benfica

Group F: Lille, RB Salzburg, Sevilla or Wolfsburg

Group H: Juventus

Man City’s Potential round of 16 opponents:

Group B: Porto, AC Milan or Atletico Madrid

Group C: Sporting Lisbon or Borussia Dortmund

Group D: Real Madrid or Inter Milan

Group E: Barcelona or Benfica

Group F: Villarreal or Atalanta

Group G: Lille, RB Salzburg, Sevilla or Wolfsburg

Group H: Juventus

The draw for the last-16 will be made in Nyon, Switzerland, at 11am on Monday, December 13.
