2017-18 Champions League group stage is highest scoring in competition history

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku right scores a goal as CSKA's Viktor Vasin tries to block during the Champions League group A soccer match between Manchester United and CSKA Moscow in Manchester Tuesday Dec. 5

Diego Simeone claims Atletico Madrid picking up less points against Qarabag than Roma in the Champions League shows "how wonderful football can be".

Chelsea have won the Premier League title in two of the past three seasons to dominate the English top flight. If injuries and suspensions hit, Chelsea might be light in some areas - underlining the fears that Conte had over what he perceived as a lack of transfer activity last summer.

Furthermore, Chelsea lost to Besiktas in Istanbul the last time the two sides faced up.

The Champions League group stage came to a pulsating conclusion on Wednesday and we now know all the teams that will contest the last-16 stage, to be drawn on Monday.

The Italian was sent to the stands by referee Neil Swarbrick towards the end of the first half in Chelsea's 1-0 victory after furiously protesting against the award of a Swansea goal-kick.

Chelsea 's 1-1 home draw with Atletico Madrid proved costly as Roma took advantage to top Group C. The number of English sides finishing at the top of their group, means that Chelsea only have a few options when it comes round to the draw.

The Blues will face one of Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas in the next round due to Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham all topping their respective groups. Eight goals conceded in six group games also suggests a vulnerability at the heart of the defence. The Scotsman oversaw 105 wins, 50 draws and 39 defeats in a period which saw him win the trophy twice. The games decided the fates of many teams. However, they were not finished yet, as they recorded a 2-1 win at RB Leipzig, courtesy of goals from Alvaro Negredo and Anderson Talisca, while Liverpool-bound midfielder Naby Keita scored Leipzig's goal. They will hope to fare better in the Europa League.

City made seven changes to their starting line-up and were 2-0 down at the interval after goals from the Ukraine side's Bernard and Ismaily.

But in a year where he will likely win the Ballon d'Or, Ronaldo grabbed one record for himself. It was his third goal of the group stage and served notice that he has the ability to trouble the best.
