no idea if you can bet on something like getting 12 out of the 16, but that's my thoughts on how it can pan out. I'm probably looking through the old rosey glasses on group H though...

Yeah, remove Celtic and olyimpiakos and add Milan and benfica.

Others I'd worry about are galataseray or Juve.

Yup, you can bet on stuff like this (try bet365 for the most varied selection of bets). Generally max out at 14 selections.
