The last day of the Champions League groups begins this Tuesday. Return on the stakes of the 8 matches of the evening.
This week will be the last day of the Champions League group stage. If we already know some qualifiers, other tickets for the eighth are still to go, as well as 3rd qualifying places for the Europa League.
Group A: City and the freewheeling PSG
In group A, we know the two qualifiers as well as their classification. Manchester City is guaranteed to finish first ahead of the Paris Saint Germain, who pays for his missteps against Used and Leipzig as well as the defeat against the Citizens, decisive for the attribution of the first place. As expected, the two behemoths of this group qualified in eighth.
Leipzig and Bruges, which have not been unworthy, will try to glean third place in the group and continue their European adventure in the Europa League. For the moment, it is the Germans who have the advantage thanks to the particular goal difference. They will also have the home advantage since they host the Cityzens on Tuesday, while the Belgians will travel to the Parc des Princes. It remains to be seen if the two giants will turn their workforce.
Tuesday’s meetings: PSG-Bruges and Leipzig-Man City
Group B: Atlético in great danger
Group B has yet to deliver its verdict! Considered the group of death with a total of 15 Champions League won by his clubs (7 for Milan, 6 for Liverpool and 2 for Porto), this group has kept all its promises. If the Liverpool Reds stand out and are sure to finish in the lead thanks to their 5 wins in as many games, everything remains to be played for the other teams. For now, Porto are second with one point ahead of Milan and theAthletic. On Tuesday, the Colchoneros will travel to Portugal while Milan will host the Reds.
- If Porto win against Atlético they are sure to qualify
- If Porto draw, they have to hope that Milan don’t win, otherwise Milan will be qualified
- If Milan and Atlético both win, they will be separated on goal difference (Milan are currently in front of a goal)
- Atlético are forced to win to have any chance of qualifying
Tuesday’s meetings: Porto-Atlético et Milan-Liverpool
Group C: It’s (already) over for Dortmund
In Group C, a team also stood out, and not the one we expected the most. Indeed, theajax Amsterdam have won their first 5 matches and are guaranteed to finish first in the group. The only stake will be for Sebastien haller, the Ivorian international striker could become the second player in history to score in each match of a group stage, after Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.
The classification of this hen is already known. the Sporting finishes second and is qualified in eighth thanks to the particular goal difference with Dortmund, which will be donated to the Europa League. As for Besiktas, they will try to register their first point (s) of the competition to save the honor.

Group D: A Real-Inter final
Finally, in group D, only first place is at stake. Real Madrid is two points ahead of theInter Milan before hosting the Interists at the Bernabéu. The mission is simple: the Merengues must not lose to be sure of being first, but they must do without Karim Benzema. The surprising team of Sheriff Tiraspol is guaranteed to finish 3rd and will be transferred to the Europa League. the Shakhtar Donetsk will finish last but will try to win a first victory in this European campaign.
