As the group stages of this season’s Champions League came to an end this week, the attention is now shifting on the knockout stages of Europe’s most sought-after competition. The big giants Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City, together with Bayern Munich and Juventus have qualified as winners in their respective groups, meaning that they will be seeded.
One team that fans saw not make it through was Manchester United, who have now been condemned to the Europa League.
Some other big names in the football world, such as Lionel Messi’s Barcelona, have finished as runner-ups. That means that some massive ties could be awaiting us in the next rounds.
The awaited final will take place on 29 May 2021 at the Atuturk Olypic Stadium in Istanbul.
When is the Champions League Draw?
The last 16 draw will be held on Monday, 14 December at 12pm CET. There will be no seeding, therefore the remaining teams could face anyone.
The first legs will be held on 16, 17, 23, and 24 February 2021, while the second legs will take place on 9, 10, 16 and 17 March.

Who can play who in the Champions League?
The winners of the groups will move on to runner-ups from one to the other seven groups that they were not previously in.
With this in mind, Liverpool could be playing against any of the unseeded teams, including Barcelona. However, they cannot face Atalanta as they were in the same group.
Similarly, Manchester City could face any one of the unseeded teams, excluding Porto. Chelsea will play any of the unseeded teams but not Sevilla.
