Manchester City confirmed themselves as the winners of Group F with a game to spare, and will be among the Pot One seeds in Monday’s draw.

Pep Guardiola’s side boast a perfect record heading into their final match away to Shakhtar Donestk, including the impressive the 4-2 win in Naples last time out.

Their form both domestically and on the European stage makes them a force to be reckoned with in the knockout rounds.

But who could Manchester City face in the next round? Standard Sport runs you though the permutations for Guardiola’s side…

Pots and seedings

As the winner of Group F, City know they will be pitted against one of the group runner-ups from Pot Two.

Group Runner-ups

C Chelsea
D Juventus
E Sevilla
F Shakhtar Donestk
G FC Porto
H Real Madrid

Who Manchester City could face…

Uefa rules stipulate that two sides from the same country cannot face one another in the last 16, meaning that Group C’s second-ranked side, Chelsea, are out of the equation. Likewise, Manchester City cannot be paired with the runner-up from their group, Sevilla.

So who could they face?
