The table is served and the 16 qualifiers to the eighth of final of the Champions League already are more than baked. Many of the teams that will contest the eliminatory phase to achieve 'The Orejona' already marked a course before initiating the competition, showing with good football why had to be taken in account. By his part, varied remained remained short, ones with disappointing attitudes and others repeating milestones that seemed to have remained in the past. To continuation, review some of the clubs that have been in elder and lower measure, a disappointment in the current League of Champions.

FC Barcelona

Any another team could head this list. The group blaugrana has remained more than short so much in staff as in exert. And it is that the fault of a '9' of area as it is it Luis Suárez or an artist of the midfield like Lionel Messi, have done that the club lose his own course. The group blaugrana only could add of to 3 in front of the colista of his group, the Dinamo of Kiev, and practically finished to seal his elimination to the not being able to win to 'The Eagles' of the Benfica in the Camp Nou.

The ones of Xavi Hernández will go back to the Europe League after more than two decades of absence, a milestone that seemed to have remained in the past for a FC Barcelona that it was figure in the maximum European competition. The square culé remained third of the group, by behind an invicto Bayern Munich and an aguerrido Benfica, what ratifies to the club momentáneamente as 'the disappointment of the year'. It will be necessary to see until stays arrives in the UEL.

Borussia Dortmund

The German group directed by Marco Rose began the competition to a step arrollador, attaining add of 3 in his two first commitments. Afterwards it fell them a hit of reality and lost both meetings in front of an Ajax that paints for big things. The square of the Signal Iduna Park arrived to the last day with possibilities to classify , but had to golear and be attentive to the result of the Sporting CP. However, golear 5 to 0 to the Besiktas did not reach them and finished third of the group and relegados to the Europe League, where could see the faces with the FC Barcelona.

AC Milan

The group of Italy is another of the disappointments that stronger has struck to the lovers of the football. The 'Rossoneri' initiated the Series To with a firm step, and from early took the tip of the local championship, showing that to international level were for big things. The ones of Stefano Pioli did not have luck in the draw and fell in the most complex group of the tournament, the group B, integrated by Liverpool, Athletic Madrid, Port wine and the ones of Milano.

After several tropiezos and a victory epic in Wanda Metropolitan, the Italians arrived with life to the last day of the phase of groups, needing a victory home in front of a Liverpool plagado of acting. The ones of Saint Siro could not fulfil the task and slipped for the second time in front of the six times European champion. The Milan now falls again in the Europe League, a 'vicious circle' of the that has not been able to escape from does several years.

Athletic of Madrid

The disappointment that arropa to the colchonero is not any fall in the competition, but the way in that they attained to classify to the eighth of final. The team of Diego Simeone fell in the most complex group, but had left good feelings that did to think that it could compete of the same to the same with the one who went. However, the rojiblancos did not attain to classify until the last minute of party and of form agónica, in front of a Port wine that sufficed him with empatar to put in the following phase.

Added to this, the Madrilenian did not depend on they same, since the AC Milan took out the advantage in the tiebreaker and the lusos had a point more. Everything depended on to take out a victory to domicile in Do Dragao and that the liverpulianos also defeated to the Italians in his visit to Saint Siro... And like this it was. For the time being, 'the harp' of the Atleti is in eighth expecting a first of group like rival.


And finally the valid champion. The square of Thomas Tuchel has showed that it is a big of the continental football and has kept a style of effective game and almost flawless. However, they have failed in it put it to classify to eighth like head of group. This means that the blue group could cross with staff very dangerous in stays still early of the tournament. Teams like the Bayern Munich or the Real Madrid, historical winners of 'The Orejona' could represent a 'stone in the shoe' for the current champions of the Champions.
