Group F: 1. Borussia Dortmund - Points - 11; 2. PSG - Points - 8

BVB were the least expected team from Group F to be qualified for the next round for obvious reasons. But the beauty of football is, they became the first to qualify from the group. Borussia Dortmund's progression, meanwhile, has arguably been the most impressive of all so far. Drawn in the so-called "Group of Death" alongside AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Newcastle United, the 1997 winners posted a third successive victory at San Siro to become the first team to qualify from Group F.

BVB had to play at least a draw against PSG to ensure the top spot and they did exactly. Dortmund have impressed the neutral fans mostly with their brand of football. PSG started the group stage, beating Dortmund by 2-0 while Newcastle forced Milan to play a 0-0 draw on matchday 1.

The beauty of football is that Newcastle finished the group on the last spot with 5 points and Milan qualified for the Europa League with 8 points. PSG sealed the 2nd spot with the same points but their head-to-head results were better than Milan.
