Their club-record streak was threatened by CSKA late in the first half after Vitinho's shot from Mario Fernandes' cut-back struck team-mate Alan Dzagoev on its way into the net.

Fifteen points from a possible eighteen comfortably allowed Manchester United to advance to the knockout stage of the Champions League, after a routine win over CSKA Moscow at Old Trafford.

"Don't forget here this season is very tough. These situations, apart from the frustration of not being in the next round, will help the team move forward and onto the Europa League", Simeone told beIN Sports Spain.

Coutinho converted an early penalty after Mohamed Salah had been hauled down and the Brazilian fired home his second before compatriot Roberto Firmino added a third in the 18th minute.

There are 16 teams left in the Champions League, half the number that started, with Atlético Madrid, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund the three biggest casualties of the group stages.

Gerrard spoke highly of the Jose Mourinho factor that will serve them well in their pursuit for European glory. Gerrard's sentiments came off the back of United's qualification to the next round of the competition.

Manchester United: Bayern Munich (4), Juventus (5), Seville (7), Shakhtar Donetsk (16), Porto (12) or Real Madrid (1).

Liverpool (if second): Roma, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Besiktas.

Spurs: Bayern Munich, Basel, Juventus, Sevilla, Porto or Shaktar Donetsk.

These restrictions are removed ahead of the quarter-finals. The second-leg games are due to take place on 6/7 and 13/14 March.

Azpilicueta's record, however, is not the Premier League's greatest - Frank Lampard started 164 consecutive games with his run coming to an end on Boxing Day 2005.

The round of 32 draw takes place on Monday and will be streamed live in UEFA.com's DrawCentre from 13:00CET. Olympiakos: Cannot even qualify for the Europa League after taking a single point from their opening five matches.
