LONDON, England (CNN) -- Portuguese champions Porto have gone to the top of the CNN Soccer Top 10 poll after securing a place in the semifinals of the Champions League.

Last year's UEFA Cup winners climbed up three places in the list after a 2-2 draw with Lyon clinched their passage with a 4-2 aggregate victory. Porto are now the only previous winners still left in the competition.

The other clubs still remaining in the Champions League dominate the list, with Chelsea, who knocked out London rivals Arsenal, up to second place and Deportivo La Coruna - who humbled holders Milan 4-0 in the greatest ever Champions League comeback, new entries in third position.

Monaco continue their climb up the list, rising five places top fifth, while the league leaders in England, Italy and Spain have all taken dramatic drops after their Champions League exits.

Arsenal plummet from pole position to eighth, Milan are now down to sixth and Real Madrid are remarkably in danger of losing their top 10 status, clinging on to that final placing.

The weekly CNN/World Soccer Top 10 is compiled by staff from CNN's World Sport show along with the team at World Soccer magazine.
