Conte says Chelsea fear no-one in Europe's elite club competition, but reckons the strength in depth of the domestic league makes winning the European Cup hard for English clubs.

However, the Premier League heavyweights can only face Barcelona, PSG or Besiktas in the next round.

He told BT Sport: "Their goalkeeper (Jan Oblak) was on fire". The first legs will be played on 13, 14, 20 and 21 February, and the second legs will be played on 6, 7, 13 and 14 March 2018.

It's not a problem, we are Chelsea!

"We know PSG and Barcelona are very good but we are a top team, too".

Chelsea will join them in the last 16, but ended up second in their group behind Roma.

"Chelsea shouldn't fear anyone at the moment".

Bayern needed just eight minutes to get their noses in front when Robert Lewandowski stabbed home after David Alaba had got his head to James Rodriguez's cross, and they increased their lead eight minutes before the break. I crashed my auto yesterday, but hey, look on the bright side: got loads of likes on the following Instagram post and I'm going to submit the crushed heap of metal to an art gallery.

As of today, Barcelona's most likely opponent in the last 16 stage of the Champions League it's Chelsea. Why?

Chelsea were the most recent English team to reach the final, winning in 2012, and Eden Hazard reckons Chelsea have what it takes to progress in the competition.

Group H runners-up Real Madrid notched 17 as Cristiano Ronaldo made history by becoming the first player to score in all six first-phase games, while Harry Kane hit six for the section's winners Tottenham.

Atletico manager Diego Simeone, meanwhile, did have regrets about their campaign.

Atletico de Madrid confirmed their exit from the UEFA Champions League with a 1-1draw at Chelsea, allowing Roma to advance to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.
