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.

Finally, after failing to get out of their group in the last two seasons, Barcelona are back among the big boys following Tuesday’s win over Porto.
