We’re almost at the point of the UEFA Champions League season where things really start to get interesting, but first, four final teams must work their way into the knockout stage field.
Manchester United, Roma, Basel and Juventus all booked their places in the next round on Tuesday, while Bayern Munich closed out group play in style with a convincing win over Paris Saint-Germain.
On Wednesday, positions are open in Groups E through G, including two spots in E, which currently has Liverpool, Sevilla and Spartak Moscow vying for a place in the Round of 16.
In Group F, Manchester City has already eased its way into the knockout phase with a perfect record thus far, leaving Shakhtar Donetsk and Napoli left to fight for one spot in the UCL and the other transferring over to the Europa League.
Finally, Porto and Red Bull Leipzig each have a shot at the next round as they enter the final day of competition. Leipzig will face group winners Besiktas, while Porto takes on defending Ligue 1 champions Monaco, who have already been eliminated from advancing.
