English teams edge Italians to advance in Champions League

UCL Kayode Eyes First UCL Goal With Shakhtar Vs Lyon

Having finished as runners-up in Europe last season, the Reds will definitely be aiming to win the Champions League this time. A 1-0 loss to the Reds at Anfield, however, has ensured that they will drop into the Europa League.

Now, England will have all four of its teams in the Champions League round of 16 draw because both Manchester clubs, City and United, already secured their places before playing on Wednesday (Thursday NZT).

Liverpool have a rich tradition of heart-stopping European escape acts at Anfield and Napoli were the latest to fall victim to the club's indelible connection with the competition. Instead, he plays the role of distributor, and that decision making gets Tottenham into the knockout stage.

Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Porto, Bayern Munich or Ajax, Lyon (unless Man City win the group), Real Madrid or Roma, Juventus (unless Man Utd win the group).

First-leg fixtures take place on 12 and 13 February and 19 and 20 of the same month.

Their success so far is down to the whole team, not just any one department.

I love Champions League nights like this at Anfield. While the highly rated Senegal global tried to contain the sixth best player in the world, it was one of their meetings on the left side of Napoli's defence that birthed the decisive goal.

Liverpool had numerous chances to wrap up the points with Sadio Mane particularly wasteful in front of goal, but last season's beaten finalists are safely through to the next phase of the competition, much to Klopp's delight. Van Dijk will be suspended for getting a third yellow card in the group stage. Indeed, either side could have taken the lead in the opening ten minutes.

Think of it this way - perhaps the agency was concerned after Iron Man boarded the Q-Ship that went into space. Tony Stark is drifting through space with no promise of rescue and that didn't bode well with the fans .

Following the draw at the Nou Camp, manager Mauricio Pochettino hailed the prospect of playing Champions League football at their new home.

His 33rd-minute strike to break the deadlock was a thing of beauty as he rode an attempted challenge from Mario Rui on the corner of the box, bamboozled Kalidou Koulibaly with fleet of foot and then found the bottom corner from the tightest of angles by firing underneath David Ospina.

Carlo Ancelotti recently quipped that his team would be "a**holes" if they failed to qualify from the position they were in, occupying first place in the group coming into the final round of matches.

PSG need a win to guarantee their own progress but will also be through if Liverpool fail to beat Napoli.

There was extra significance behind Salah's goal, too.

To have only conceded six goals in the league after 16 games is a record to be proud of and to be 16 points ahead of Manchester United going into next Sunday's game against Jose Mourinho's side at Anfield is a remarkable statistic.

The Poland striker was played through on goal in stoppage time in what was a massive chance for the visitors.
