The matches in WS today – formality for some and decisive battles for others
Nowadays, the last matches in 4 of the Champions League teams are to be played. Most of them have a serious intrigue and will decide which teams will go ahead in the tournament and who will join the Europa League. There are also games that do not depend on anything, and teams will only play for their honor and for the UEFA prizes.
In Group A, Manchester United needs a point at home against CSKA (Moscow) to finish first. “Red” Devils “will also qualify for a loss if it is not more than 6 goals – this is the case if Basel wins his visit to Benfica and three teams will score 9 points. with more points from Basel, and the task of the Swiss is easier because they are visiting Benfica’s five consecutive losses, and they also have an advantage in direct duels with the “Army.”
In Group B, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern (Munich) have long since defeated Celtic and Anderlecht, and it is up to them to determine who will win first. The only option of not being PSG is Bayern to win against Uliy Emerich’s Allianz Arena with 4 or more goals.
Similar is the situation in the battle for the third position between Celtic and Anderlecht. The Belgians lost at home with 0: 3, which means they need success with the same or higher score in Glasgow to replace the Clover.
In group C, Chelsea has already secured the participation of the eighth finals, but is trying to finish first. This could be a victory against Atletico Madrid. In the event of a tie or a loss, the “blue” still have a chance to maintain the leadership position, but only if Roma does not beat Karabakh at home. Three points for the “wolves” will automatically mean that Atletico will finish third and will not play in the elimination direction. To move on, “mats” need a victory for Stamford Bridge and a wrong step for Roma. Karabakh will surely be the last in the band.
Barcelona already guaranteed its first place in group “D”, and favorite for the second is Juventus. The Italian Grand Prix hosts to Olympiakos and can do everything by winning. Equality will give Sporting (Lisbon) a chance to displace the “bikonkers” with the possible success of Camp Nou. Olympiakos has no chance even for the third place.
