The Champions League group stage is complete and has led to a novelty in the second round. For the first time, only teams from the five major leagues in Europe have qualified for the knockout round.

On Wednesday, Atletico Madrid and Atalanta Bergamo secured the last remaining tickets of the round of the top 16. Thus, the following 16 teams were in the second round: Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig (Bundesliga), Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, FC Chelsea (Premier League), Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atletico Madrid, Valencia (Primera Division), Juventus, SSC Napoli, Atalanta Bergamo (Serie A), Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Lyon (both Ligue 1).

Bergamo managed to be the first team since 2002/03, who did not have a single point in the account after three games to secure the fleet for progress. The Italians are just like the other seven runners in Lostopf 2 and thus have a first stage at home. The round of 16 will be played on Monday at 12 o'clock.
