It is the final week of group stage matches in the UEFA Champions League and there is still plenty of jostling for positions going on. Already we have twelve teams who have booked their spot in the next round, including Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City from the Premier League, so it has been largely positive from the English representatives, despite the loss of Tottenham early in the group stage.
Arsenal and Manchester City are in action on Tuesday night. The Gunners need to go out and better the result that PSG get in their game against Ludogorets or else once again the Gunners will have to settle for second place from their group. Paris have the head to head advantage over Arsenal, so as long as the Gunners don’t overtake them on points, then they will win the group.
Manchester City’s group is already settled position-wise. Barcelona have topped it, with Man City going through in second place and Celtic can only finish fourth. There is always a heavyweight clash of Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid going off in Group D, but Atletico have already won the group, with Bayern following through in second place. The Germans are looking for their 15th straight Champions League home win though and Atletico are on the hunt for six wins from six in this season’s group stage.
Tottenham, having been dumped out need to go out and try to claim third place to get into the Europa League and they will get there with a point in the bag against CSKA Moscow at Wembley on Wednesday. There is a dramatic conclusion to come in Group F with Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid squaring off for top spot. Only a win for the Spaniards in that game will see them claim top spot from the Germans. Leicester, who have already topped their group will finish up against Porto.
