UEFA Champions League: How clubs are scheduled to play last group stage match

Spanish football club Atlético Madrid will try to avoid being ruled out of the UEFA Champions League when it takes the field on Tuesday. Atletico Madrid is in last place in Group B. Atletico Madrid will have to win against second-placed Porto on Tuesday and hope that AC Milan lose or draw against group winners Liverpool.

RB Leipzig will face Manchester City in Group A on Tuesday in an empty stadium due to coronavirus restrictions. At the same time, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) will face Club Bruges in another group match. Barcelona eyes last-16 of UEFA Champions League for the first time without Lionel Messi. Barcelona is in danger of being eliminated from the group stage for the first time in nearly two decades and will find their momentum in the match against Bayern Munich on Wednesday. 

If Barcelona fails to meet the challenge of Bayern Munich, it will be the first time since the 2003–04 season that Barcelona will miss the knockout stage of the football tournament. Barcelona is second in Group E behind Bayern Munich and are two points ahead of number three Benfica. But a draw or a loss in Germany could give Benfica an edge as Dinamo Kyiv would already be out if they win at home.

Real Madrid would like to be on top. Villarreal could advance to Group F if they don’t suffer a loss against Atlanta on Wednesday. Salzburg, Sevilla, and Wolfsburg can still advance in Group G. Salzburg need a draw and they are set to face Sevilla. Meanwhile, European champions Chelsea and Real Madrid are the teams that would like to finish first in their respective groups to give them easy matches in the last-16. 

Both the teams have made it to the last-16. Chelsea and Juventus have 12 points each, but with a head-to-head record, Chelsea is ahead. If Chelsea gets a win against Zenit St. Petersburg on Wednesday, the defending champions will strengthen their claim to the top spot.
