The final matchdays of the UEFA Champions League group stage are upon us, with groups E, F, G and H competing on Tuesday and A, B, C and D facing off on Wednesday. Though most of the teams have punched their tickets to the round of 16 already, there’s something at stake in three of the four groups and everything at stake in one of the groups.

United, PSG, Leipzig Battle For Group H Spots

All of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig have nine points on three wins and two losses, but only two get to advance to the knockout round while the third is relegated to Europa League.

The tiebreaker is points in head-to-head matches followed by goal differential in those matchups, giving United the advantage after beating Leipzig 5-0 at home in their first group stage meeting

The final matchdays of the UEFA Champions League group stage are upon us, with groups E, F, G and H competing on Tuesday and A, B, C and D facing off on Wednesday. Though most of the teams have punched their tickets to the round of 16 already, there’s something at stake in three of the four groups and everything at stake in one of the groups.


United, PSG, Leipzig Battle For Group H Spots

All of Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig have nine points on three wins and two losses, but only two get to advance to the knockout round while the third is relegated to Europa League.

The tiebreaker is points in head-to-head matches followed by goal differential in those matchups, giving United the advantage after beating Leipzig 5-0 at home in their first group stage meeting.

Things are simple for the Parisians: Win at home against Istanbul Basakeshir at 3 p.m. eastern and they’re in. If they draw and so do United and RBL, PSG is also in on head-to-head results.

Thanks to the first head-to-head result between them, RB Leipzig needs a win at home to advance to the round of 16. Helping them in this regard will be the absences of key strikers Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani, the suspension of midfielder Fred and the general uncertainty regarding Paul Pogba.

But Man United are through with a point, same for PSG. Leipzig need a win.

Lazio, Brugge Go Heat To Head In Group F

While Chelsea and Sevilla have cruised into clinching knockout spots in Group E and Borussia Dortmund has already assured a round of 16 place heading into its 12:55 p.m. eastern visit to Zenit St. Petersburg, the final spot in Group F is a winner-take-all elimination match.

Italian side Lazio only needs a home draw against Belgium’s Club Brugge to advance, but a road win for the Belgians sees them leapfrog Lazio and advance in the Champions League for the first time since the 1988-1989 season.
