Who can Chelsea face in the Champions League draw?


helsea breezed through as winners of Group D to seal a spot in the Champions League round of 16 draw with time to spare.

Frank Lampard was dealt a favourable group-stage draw against Sevilla, Rennes and Krasnodar, and Chelsea took 14 points undefeated to finish top of the pile.

Chelsea will now be looking ahead to the last-16 knockout stages, which will likely be tougher than anything they have faced in the competition so far this season.

The Blues won the competition for the first time in their history back in 2012 when Lampard was a midfielder for the club.

Having spend over £200million on transfers in the summer, Roman Abramovich’s expectations will be high that Lampard can take this new-look Chelsea side far this time around.

Having qualified top of their group, Chelsea are one of the eight seeded teams for Monday’s draw.

Given that they cannot face Group E rivals Sevilla, that leaves seven possible opponents for Klopp’s men.

  • FC Porto
  • Lazio
  • Barcelona
  • RB Leipzig
  • Atalanta
  • Borussia Monchengladbach
  • Atletico Madrid
