Champions League: These teams have already qualified for the round of 16

A total of five teams are allowed to shift down a gear in the premier class, as they will definitely finish the group stage in first or second place. They include FC Bayern Munich, who have so far collected all 12 points in Group C against Inter Milan, FC Barcelona and Viktoria Pilsen, taking their record of consecutive unbeaten matches in the Champions League group stage to 32.

In addition to FC Bayern, only one other club has won all group games: SSC Napoli from Group A. The Serie A leaders beat Liverpool FC, Glasgow Rangers and twice against Ajax Amsterdam.

Club Brugge didn’t collect all the points – they drew against Atletico Madrid – but they are definitely enough for the round of 16. The Belgian champions are also the only club in the premier class to claim not to have conceded a goal so far.

Reigning Champions League winners Real Madrid also have a place in the knockout stage (10 points). The in-form Madrilenians are four points ahead of RB Leipzig in Group F.

Last but not least, Manchester City (10 points) can slowly prepare for the forthcoming round of 16. FC Sevilla and FC Copenhagen can no longer catch up with the English champions, only Borussia Dortmund, currently second with seven points, still has a chance.
