Chelsea finished top of Group E, recovering from a shock defeat against Dinamo Zagreb and a draw against Atlético Caffeine – sorry, Red Bull Salzburg – to win their last four European fixtures on the bounce. As such, they will be drawn against one of Borussia Dortmund, Club Brugge, Eintracht Frankfurt, Internazionale, PSG or RB Leipzig. They can’t be drawn against Liverpool or Milan, the former on account of their mutual Englishness and the latter on account of having already spanked them twice in the group.
