Tottenham Hotspur found safe passage through to the knockout rounds of the Champions League last night, albeit by the skin of their teeth.

It looked as if the North London club would need a win to qualify at the start of play, as surely Inter Milan would beat PSV at home.

However, PSV did Tottenham a huge favour in holding the Italians to a draw, paving the way for a 1-1 result against Barca to be enough for Spurs.

This sends Tottenham through to the knock out rounds on their head to head record against Inter Milan.

But who will Spurs face, and when are the games to be played?

The Champions League takes a break until February now, with the next fixtures to be played on the 12/13 and 19/20 of Feb.

The reverse legs will then be played on the 5/6 and 12/13 of March.

So far, Porto, Dortmund, Barcelona, PSG, and Real Madrid have topped their respective groups.

Out of these, Spurs would be able to play Dortmund, PSG, Porto, and Real Madrid.

The remaining groups will be decided tomorrow night, with Juventus and United fighting it out for the top spot in Group H.

Man City and Lyon will compete for top spot in Group F, and Ajax and Bayern in Group E.

If they all finish top, Spurs would be able to play Juve, Lyon, and Bayern/Ajax.

They would not be able to play any English sides until the semi finals.

So Tottenham’s likely possible opponents are Dortmund, PSG, Porto, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Juventus.

The pick of the bunch would have to be Porto or Dortmund from this lot.
