Barcelona need only a point to progress to the next round of the Champions League, but with the form they’re in (7 wins in last eight games including a massive 4-0 victory in El Clasico on Saturday), the Blaugrana will push for all the three points.
In Group F, Arsenal need a victory and hope Bayern beat Olympiakos, to keep their slim hopes alive of progressing to the knock out stages.
Chelsea fans breathed a sigh of relief after the Blues earned a slender 1-0 win over Norwich. The Londoners will book their place in last 16, should they win against Maccabi and Porto pick up full points over Dynamo Kiev.
The situation in Group H could get complicated, if Lyon win their home match against Gent and Valencia suffer defeat against Zenit. Los Che would however qualify if they beat Zenit and Lyon win their home match against Gent.
It’s pretty straight forward in Group A where Real Madrid are expected to increase the lead at the top with a win over Shakhtar, while PSG should win comfortably against Malmo.
Three teams are separated by just one point in Group B. A victory over PSV Eindhoven will see Manchester United qualify to the next round, however, a defeat could put the Red Devils in danger of getting eliminated.
Benfica and Atletico Madrid should ease through the knockout rounds with wins over Astana and Galatasaray respectively. However, it could get interesting should Gala pick up full three points against the Rojiblancos.
The fate of the Group D is more or less decided, but all eyes will be on Juve-Man City, which promises to be a real cracker.
