CHELSEA became the last English team to seal their qualification into the Champions League last 16 with a 2-1 win over Lille.
First-half strikes from Tammy Abraham and Cesar Azpilicueta were enough to see the Blues through as Group H runners-up after former Stamford Bridge star Loic Remy scored for the French side.
As a result of finishing second, Frank Lampard's side will be at home for the first-leg before potentially travelling to the likes of Barcelona, Paris, or Munich for the return fixture.
Chelsea cannot be drawn against fellow Premier League teams Liverpool and Manchester City, who both topped their groups, in the next round.
The Blues also won't be returning to face Group H winners Valencia because they were in the same group.
Of the five they can face however, four won their domestic titles last season, with RB Leipzig the most favourable outcome for Chelsea.
Julian Nagelsmann's side, who are six points ahead of Bundesliga champions Bayern, would still prove a stern test for the Londoners.
