WHICH current Champions League players have made over 100 appearances in the competition?

"It's not a problem who we get, we are Chelsea".

"Our opponent (in the next round) won't be happy to play against us".

In Group A, Manchester United came back in the second half to defeat CSKA Moscow 2-1 at Old Trafford.

If a move away wasn't guaranteed already, it most certainly is, and could even occur next month. You have to play a lot of games, but when you arrive at the final stage to play for quarter-finals, semi-finals the English teams have a lot of games in their legs.

For Barcelona, this victory in the group became the 11th in a row.

Chelsea were through to the knockout stages, but blew their chance to finish in first place and earn an easier draw.

Real Madrid progressed in second place after beating Dortmund 3-2 at the Bernabeu Stadium.

That in itself is a record: 306 goals over the 96 group-stage games comfortably beats the previous best, meaning the tournament is currently averaging a staggering 3.1 goals a game.
