Why Chelsea is expected to face Inter Milan in the Champions League round of 16

EXPLAINED: Why Chelsea is expected to face Inter Milan in the Champions League round of 16.

Chelsea won Group E and thus earned a spot in the Round of 16 of the Champions League.

Additionally, a computation of prospective elimination round matchups indicates that the Blues have a 19% chance of coming up against Inter Milan.

This is as a result of three unique guidelines for the Round of 16 draw:

1. Group runners-up will take on the group’s winner.

2. Teams cannot choose opponents from the same nation.

3. Teams cannot be drawn against opponents they faced during the group stage.

They cannot be paired up against Graham Potter’s club because three other Premier League teams have already advanced to the Round of 16.

Next on the list of Chelsea’s most likely rivals are the Bundesliga’s Eintracht Frankfurt, Borussia Dortmund (17.95%), and RB Leipzig (17.23%).
