What Chelsea, United need to do as Bayern and PSG advance
Here’s what the teams need to do to seal progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League after they have reached four games.
Man United (12): One point from their remaining two games with FC Basel or CSKA Moscow
FC Basel (6): Beat Man United in their next game and then cement their spot with a point vs. Benfica.
CSKA Moscow (6): Beat Benfica in their next game and then cement their spot with a point vs. Man United.
Benfica (0): Need to win their next two games and with a better record than either FC Basel (5-0) or CSKA Moscow (2-1), while also hoping both teams lose.
PSG (12): Through. Need four points from their two games to cement top spot if Bayern win both of theirs.
Bayern (9): Through on head-to-head after beating Celtic twice. Need PSG to lose and to beat them 4-0 to seal top spot.
Celtic (3): Out. Can seal Europa League spot by beating Anderlecht.
Anderlecht (0). Out. Can seal Europa League spot by beating Celtic if they lose to PSG and Anderlecht draw with Bayern.
Roma (8): A win over Atletico seals it if Chelsea lose or draw in Qarabag. Or they can afford to wait and beat Qarabag on final day.
Chelsea (7): One win over Qarabag away will do, but they must hope Atletico beat Roma if they want top spot.
Atletico Madrid (3): Must beat Roma (H) and Chelsea (A) to have any hope of avoiding Europa League.
Qarabag (2): Can cause a massive upset by beating Chelsea, but would need a miracle.
Barcelona (10): A point from their two games seals progress, beat Juve in their next game and they cement top spot.
Juventus (7): Beat Barcelona and they are through, but fail and they’d need to beat Olympiakos if Sporting don’t lose their next game.
Sporting Lisbon (4): Must beat Olympiakos and hope Barcelona beat Juventus. But they won’t progress on head-to-head, so need to better Juve’s final result too.
Olympiakos (1): Slim hopes if they beat Sporting and Juventus, but only if both teams lose their games.
Other group games will appear here on Wednesday night.
