Here are the six clubs we could face in the Round of 16:

Club Brugge

Eintracht Frankfurt



Paris Saint-Germain

RB Leipzig


UCL draw on Monday...

We now look forward to Monday’s Round of 16 draw.

It takes place at 11:00 (UK time) at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland – and we will enter as one of the seeded teams.

There are two pots: one featuring eight group winners (seeded teams) and the other of the eight runners-up (unseeded teams).

Importantly, seeded group winners, like ourselves, will play away in the Round of 16 first legs and are at home in the return matches.


Guardiola on Alvarez performance 💬

“He had two assists!

“I would say there is not one person in the locker room today, staff and players, who is not happy for him.

“He is a special guy. He has an incredible work ethic. 

“He made two assists and scored one goal. The goal is not easy."


More Guardiola on Lewis 💬

"We see him every day. We don't give presents here. 

"Not just because he's a Manchester City fan, because he's from the Academy, he's going to play. He had to earn it.

"We have seen him since Day One in USA in pre-season when he played a few minutes against Bayern Munich. And in the training sessions, it was 'this guy has something special.'"


Guardiola on the win 💬

"From the minute one of the second half, we had more presence in the final third because against 5-4-1, defend deep, it's difficult.

"In the second half, we were much better.

"Rodri had an impact again. It was good. We made a really good game in general.

"To qualify, it's good. We finished well. It was a good night for us."


Guardiola on Lewis 💬

"He’s so clever, so intelligent. He made a standing ovation all the way down. He played really good. 

"He is so good, so intelligent. 

"If you say something he understands everything. He doesn't need to practice more.

"I am really happy for him."


Dias on City focus 💬

"In this club it doesn't matter if it's a friendly or UCL final or group stage game with everything done already.

"We need to push each other. 

"The same as in training as well. You can train in a certain way or you can train to win things. That’s just the way we do things."


Dias match reaction 💬

"Everything was done and settled in terms of the maths of the group but still it was a game we needed to perform and [find] the rhythm to keep going. 

"The games don’t stop. To drop down completely is never a good idea. In the second half it was a very good answer from the team."


Dias on Lewis 💬

"Definitely, he is an enormous talent.

"He’s been with us a long time now. 

"I think for him to have the opportunity to play and to score, you can see his quality. 

"Brilliant things from him and he just needs to keep working."
