Following the matches tonight, we can put a list together of the possible opponents for the next round of the Champions League.

Since you can't play the runner up in your own group, nor teams from the same FA, that leaves the 6 possible opponents for Manchester United: Inter Milan, Lyon, Copenhagen, AS Roma, Marseille and AC Milan.

After the jump is a table showing United's record versus each of the six possibilities.
