Liverpool’s, Chelsea’s, Man United’s And Man City’s Champions League Opponents Predicted

The Champions League will still have a full quartet of English clubs competing in the competition when it resumes in February, and their most likely last-16 opponents have now been predicted.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City will all be seeded in the draw after topping their respective Champions League groups, while Chelsea take an unseeded place after finishing second behind Juventus.

No two teams from the same football association or Champions League group are able to face each other in the last 16, meaning the number of potential opponents for each club is vastly reduced.

With that in mind, GiveMeSport has estimated the chances of each tie being drawn, ahead of next Monday's draw.

Sporting - 14.82%

Inter - 18.71%

Benfica - 14.82%

Villarreal - 0.00%

Chelsea - 0.00%

Conclusion: United are most likely to play Atletico Madrid or Inter Milan.


Chelsea

Manchester City - 0.00%

Liverpool - 0.00%

Ajax - 21.77%

Real Madrid - 31.27%

Bayern Munich - 21.77%

Manchester United - 0.00%

Lille - 25.19%

Juventus - 0.00%

Conclusion: Chelsea arguably have a much tougher list of potential opponents on paper, and look most likely to face Real Madrid - a side the Blues eliminated in the semi-finals on course to last season's Champions League triumph.

It is going to be fascinating to see the results of the draw, which takes place at 11am (UK time) on Monday.
