    Sorry, not enough time to post the schedule now.

    Zenit beat Valencia 2-0 and Leverkusen played a 1-1 draw in Belarus against Bate Borisov.

    Pretty easy win for Zenit. Second goal was a beauty.

    Lyon leading 1-0 but Genk goalie has stopped a goal with his hand outside the box. Should have been red and free kick.
    Amazing to miss that. It was so obvious !

    Oops, yes. Well GenT equalized on a nice freekick.

    But that red card though... :facepalm:

    So looking like Arsenal will need to win in Greece by two goals next matchday

    Group G is setting up nicely if Dynamo Kiev can hold on to the win, could be a group where 10 points is not enough to qualify

    A win in London will put Chelsea out as well.

    Neymar clearly wanted to show off. He tried to embarass the goalie and I cheered when he missed it.

    Lol Lyon. Another shameful display. And not even trying on the last corner, allowing the defeat.

    With that said, the turning point of the game was that handball preventing Lacazette from scoring.

    Shameful? I think Lyon played a good 2nd half, they easily could have won.

    Wasn't like the first game where they were completely dominated by Gent.

    Nah, they didn't create anything. Can you remember big chances they got?
    They didn't. La Gantoise even had the upper hand in the first half.

    Gent completely control their own destiny now at home against Zenit with nothing to play for

    At least Gent have secured more European football. Up to them to stay in the CL or play EL now. Quite an impressive feat for a first appearance.

    Lacazette had a huge chance right at the end but his shot was cleared or else another Lyon player had a wide open net. That's the best one I can remember.

    But this is pretty insane for a club like Gent. First championship in their history and now on the verge of surviving the CL group stage. Although beating Zenit, even if already qualified, will still be extremely hard.

    So the tie-breaker is goal difference and then head-to-head or only head-to-head?

    It makes it interesting for Chelsea and Arsenal going into the final day to say the least.

    Group E
    Barcelona win the group; Roma have the advantage of knowing a win at home against BATE will be enough. Leverkusen need help from BATE but more importantly they need a result against Barcelona. Even BATE is still alive, they need a win away in Rome and hope Leverkusen don't win

    Group F
    Bayern win the group; Olympiakos-Arsenal fight for second, Arsenal need to win by 2 goals or anything above 3:2.

    Group G
    One of the tighter groups; Chelsea and Porto on top with 10 points but they play each other at Stamford Bridge while Dynamo Kiev are expected to win at home against MTA. The winner of Chelsea-Porto will win the group while loser are eliminated. Should Chelsea-Porto end in a draw then we will have an 11-11-11 group :amazed:

    Group H
    Zenit win the group; Gent host Zenit and control their own destiny. Valencia host Lyon and must win while hope Gent don't win
