English side 7-4 for Champions League glory

It was tense for Liverpool and Tottenham before both clubs squeezed through to the knockout phase by the narrowest of margins but their qualification means four English teams in the Champions League last 16 and Betway offer 7-4 from 9-4 that a Premier League side will reign supreme in Europe's premier club competition.

Liverpool, who beat Napoli 1-0 at Anfield thanks to a first-half Mohamed Salah goal, are 10-1 to win the Champions League, although the Reds will need a touch of luck in Monday's draw after finishing second in their group behind Paris St-Germain.

Spurs, 25-1 shots, will also be unseeded in the first knockout round, but they won't care too much about that after a dramatic night of matchday six action eventually saw them secure a 1-1 draw away to Barcelona with substitute Lucas Moura's late goal cancelling out Ousmane Dembele's opener.

Tottenham had been 9-2 to qualify after starting the group campaign with one point from three matches, but a draw was enough against a much-changed Barca as Inter were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by PSV Eindhoven at San Siro.

The last-16 draw will take place on Monday at 11am with sides from the same country and those who qualified together kept apart.

Manchester City and Manchester United had already secured their place in the knockout phase before the final round of group fixtures.

Key stats
  • Newport are unbeaten in 12 matches.
Expert verdict
Michael Flynn’s Newport headed into the playoffs as the fourth tier’s form side, securing seventh spot by finishing the season ten games unbeaten. Tranmere will know all too well about County’s disciplined defensive, having failed to score in both league meetings with them and, even with James Norwood leading the line, they look vulnerable.
