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

Successive victories over Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund secured top spot for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who can now look forward to the last 16 after Wednesday’s clash with Apoel Nicosia.

The Cypriots will battle it out with Dortmund for a place in the Europa League, while Madrid progress with Spurs as group runners-up.

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

Who Tottenham 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, Tottenham cannot be paired with Real Madrid, who they met in the group stages.
