Despite dominating the first half, United fell behind on the stroke of half-time when Mario Fernandes crossed for Santos Vitinho to fire in a shot which clipped Alan Dzagoev as it flew into the net with off-field Daley Blind playing him onside.

As a result of these restrictions, the Blues would only be able to draw three teams in the round of 16 - Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain or Besiktas. For this reason, we must be pleased for our group [campaign]. At the same time I think our opponent won't be happy to play against us.

Conte's men kept pushing after the interval and Andreas Christensen's header was saved by Oblak before Eden Hazard's deflected shot looped narrowly wide.

Roma host Qarabag on Tuesday, December 5. But we tried to find the strength to draw and try to win.

CSKA drop into the Europa League, while Basel reached the last 16 for the third time this decade, the Swiss champions beating Benfica 2-0 in Lisbon with goals from Mohamed Elyounoussi and Dimitri Oberlin.

Cesc Fabregas routinely found space right up on the Atletico byline and one such raid ought to have been converted by Christensen, but the defender nosed wide from inches out.

It failed to even qualify for the group stage last season after losing a playoff to Porto 4-1 on aggregate, including a 3-0 defeat at home.

It will take place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.

However, within eight minutes of the restart, the Giallorossi were ahead.

Attention will now turn to winning through to the quarter-finals for the first time since 2007-08, when they were dumped out by Manchester United for the second successive campaign.

Atletico took the lead in the 56th minute when Saul Niguez headed in at the far post after flick on by former Chelsea striker Fernando Torres following a corner.

Conte refused to blame Bakayoko, saying: "He is a young player".

"It's not a disaster".

"I wouldn't say it's a failure. It's a situation that can happen".

"We showed strength, we showed we are a competitive team".

Diego Perotti scored the only goal as Roma beat Qarabag 1-0.
