    Only head-to-head

    Arsenal need to win by 2 goals or anything greater than 3:2.

    For example a 2:1 win Arsenal won't be enough but a 4:3 win would

    And if they win 3:2 it goes to goal differential, I believe.

    And that's where I need clarification on what happens. What are the tie-breakers and in what order? Because if it is 11-11-11, then Porto wins the tie over Chelsea but Chelsea wins it over Kiev. If it's goal difference then Kiev might thrash MTA and go through...

    Thomas Müller tonight became the youngest player in history to win 50 CL games, apparently.

    If its 11-11-11 then the results against MTA are discarded and the results among the top 3 are counted

    So lets assume Chelsea-Porto ends 1:1 and Kiev win...each would have 5 points against each other but Dynamo Kiev would have the best goal difference and Chelsea would finish 2nd. FC Porto will be hurt because they lost by two goals at home to Kiev so for them its imperative to win in London as any draw won't be good enough, even a high scoring one, as every other game between these three ended in a draw or were one goal decisions

    Arsenal is going to put in the best performance of the season and pull out a 2 - 1 victory because it's the Wenger thing to do

    Dynamo Kiev fined two games behind closed doors (and financially) for the incident against Chelsea. So that means no fans for the crucial MTA match and likely a R16 match

    Interesting schedule today, you have games at 10am, noon and the normal 2:45pm eastern time.

    Benfica fight back to earn a 2:2 draw with Astana, the Kazakhs were the more impressive team and could have won the match

    Benfica still control their own destiny for first place as they have a better H2H over Atletico whom they play at home on MD6

    important win by Wolfsburg, this results means they control their own destiny for 1st place if they can beat Manchester United at home on MD6. Puts pressure on PSV who probably now need a result against Manchester United later today to have any R16 hopes

    If things go to plan in this group (United winning); Wolfsburg vs. MU will be match for first place while PSV-CSKA will be match for the EL spot

    Lars Stindl always has been a very good player. Still sad we lost him. Very underrated.

    Sterling is awful. Juve need to bring in Cuadrado, this way they'll have him and Dybala rolling on the floor for half of the last 10 minutes.:laugh:

    United is in big trouble. They need to win in Wolfsburg to guarantee a spot in the knockout stages.
