Champions League: How they stand

The Champions League group phase concludes this week with 11 teams competing for the five remaining places in the first knockout round. Here are the permutations:

Qualified: Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Dortmund, Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Paris St-Germain, Barcelona, Chelsea, Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk.

Can qualify: Olympiacos, Juventus, Basle, Liverpool, Monaco, Zenit St Petersburg, Roma, Manchester City, CSKA Moscow, Schalke, Sporting Lisbon.

Tonight's MATCHES


Atletico Madrid are through and will win the group so long as they do not lose by two goals or more at Juventus, who will advance with a draw, if Olympiacos do not win at home to Malmo.


Five-time champions Liverpool to progress must beat Basle, who will advance with a draw. Real Madrid p ut their 100 per cent record to the test against Ludogorets, who are out.


A draw with Zenit St Petersburg would be enough for Monaco to progress, while a win could see the Ligue 1 side take top spot from Bayer Leverkusen, who play eliminated Benfica. Zenit will be through if they beat Monaco.


Borussia Dortmund and Arsenal are through, with the Germans needing to lose for the English side to clinch the group. A draw for Dortmund against Anderlecht and a hat full of goals for Arsenal at Galatasaray could see the English side go top.

tomorrow's MATCHES


Three teams have five points. Manchester City must win at Roma and hope CSKA Moscow do not beat already-qualified Bayern Munich to advance. A win - or even a draw - against City may be enough for the Italians, while the Russians must win.


A draw for Paris St-Germain against Barcelona will be enough for the Frenchmen to clinch the group. Both sides are already through.


Chelsea have won the group and play Sporting Lisbon, who will join them in the last 16 if Schalke do not win at eliminated Maribor. A draw may be enough for the Portuguese side to advance.


Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk have qualified ahead of their meeting in Portugal, with Athletic Bilbao and BATE Borisov playing for a consolation place in the Europa League.
