The final matches in the Champions League group stage as we know them. The system will change next year, but the first European winter in Champions League football is at stake. Antwerp is certainly not there, it promises to be exciting evenings for many other teams. Overview.
In Group A, we will mainly be looking at the top match between Bayern Munich and Manchester United on Tuesday. The German record champion goes to Old Trafford relieved with the group win in his pocket.
And coach Erik ten Hag will feel more pressure: his United side were recently in a group with Copenhagen and Galatasaray. Reaching the knockout stage will be very difficult. His team must win against Bayern and hope for a draw in Denmark.
If a winner emerges in the tit-for-tat match between Dries Mertens and Copenhagen, he will go into hibernation anyway.
Will Ten Hag continue to lead his team to the knockout stage?
Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven have already secured their places in the Champions League round of 16. Only a Europa League ticket is still at stake in Group B.
Lins and Sevilla compete in a direct duel over the safety net. The result in the previous confrontation between the two teams was 1-1. Tonight’s winner will definitely go to the Europa League.
The Spanish club cannot rely on the services of Dodi Lukebakio. The Red Devil was injured last weekend in the Spanish competition.
Dodi Lukebakio is not there against Lens.
With 15 wins out of 15, Real Madrid are untouchable in Group C. The record holder of 14 final victories can once again compete for the cup with big ears.
Napoli will have to work hard tonight to beat Sporting Braga. The Italians have the advantage, by 3 points and also won the previous encounter (1-2), but if they win by two goals, the Portuguese will still qualify.
If Braga loses, it could see its entire European winter burn. Union Berlin will then have to do something big at home against Real Madrid.
In Group D, the race for Champions League tickets has already begun. Real Sociedad and Inter are the fastest in the group.
Red Bull Salzburg can defend its ticket in a direct match against Benfica. To beat Salzburg, the Portuguese will need a small miracle. Winning by just 3 goals is enough to make a strong turnaround.
Concrete. There is absolutely nothing at stake in the fifth set on Wednesday. Atletico Madrid and Lazio will continue in the Champions League, and Feyenoord will step down after the New Year.
Knockout stage without Kylian Mbappe? It may just be possible. Paris Saint-Germain faces a tough match away to Borussia Dortmund, who have already secured qualification for the Champions League.
With this victory, the French stars secure the Champions League title after the winter, and as for any other result, they will eagerly await the match between Newcastle United and AC Milan.
Champions League tickets have already been sold out in Group G: Manchester City and RB Leipzig were crowned as the strongest teams in the group stage. Young Boys are also certain to stay in the Europa League. The European adventure is over for Red Star.
After 0 out of 15, Antwerp’s honor is only at stake in the group stage. And in the final match against Barcelona, he wants to leave his mark on champions football.
Barcelona is not yet sure of its lead in the group, so it would be better to get at least one point in Antwerp. Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk are competing for the second Champions League ticket.
