    The question is do I go to the Spurs v Milan game as an Arsenal fan?

    Yes. Always yes. Should be a good one. Both teams are playing real well.

    Dortmund v Brugge will get ugly. Brugge have been in terrible form and are ravaged by injuries.

    So elimination and clinching scenarios. I *think* these are accurate, but I haven't gone through detailed.

    Group A
    Borrusia Dortmund
    - A draw confirms they progress to R16. A win combined with an Atletico loss confirms they'll top the group.
    Atletico Madrid - Either Brugge dropping points or a win will confirm R16. Anything except a loss combined with a BVB win will leave them alive for topping the group in MD6
    Club Brugge - Anything except a win will ensure they're not moving onto R16. Anything matching or beating Monaco's result will ensure they finish 3rd a move to the Europa League
    Monaco - They need a better result than Brugge or they'll be confirmed bottom of group.

    Group B
    Barcelona
    - Draw, win or Spurs dropping points means R16. An equal result to Inter means they top the group.
    Inter Milan - A draw or a win clinches round of 16. They need a better result than Barca to stay alive for the top of the group.
    Tottenham - Anything except a win ensures they won't make R16. A result equal or better than PSV means they'll move to the Europa League at worst
    PSV - Can't move onto R16. Need a result better than Spurs to stay alive for the Europa.

    Group C
    This is a cluster. All teams are technically alive for all positions. No one can clinch top or bottom of group this week.
    Napoli - A win and a PSG draw/loss would mean they clinch R16
    Liverpool - A win would clinch R16.
    PSG - A loss and a Napoli win would mean they can't move to R16
    Red Star Belgrade - A loss and Liverpool/PSG not being a draw would mean they can't move onto R16.

    Group D
    Porto
    - Any point or Galatasaray dropping points ensures R16. A win cliches top of group.
    Schalke - A result equal or better than Galatasaray clinches R16. Win or draw keeps top of group alive.
    Galatasaray - A loss or a draw and Porto/Schalke ending in a draw means they can't move onto R16. Anything except a loss means they won't finish bottom of group
    Lokomotiv Moscow - Need a win to keep Europa league hopes alive

    Group E
    Bayern
    - Any points ensure they're moving onto R16. A win and Ajax dropping points would mean they top the group.
    Ajax - A win or Benfica dropping points mean they move onto R16. To keep top of the group alive they need a Bayern loss, a win, or a pair of draws.
    Benfica - Need a 3 goal win to keep R16 alive or any win and Ajax dropping points.. A win, or AEK dropping points, would ensure Europa league at worst.
    AEK - Benfica loss and a draw or a win and Benfica dropping points would keep them alive for Europa League.

    Group F
    Man City
    - Win or draw clinches R16. Win tops the group.
    Lyon - Equal or better result to Hoffenheim gives them R16. Win or draw keeps top of group alive.
    Hoffenheim - Win or a better result than Lyon keeps them alive for R16. Win also means Europa league at the worst.
    Shakhtar Donetsk - Win and Lyon loss/draw keeps R16 alive. Win or draw keeps Europa league alive.

    Group G
    Real Madrid
    - Win tops the group/clinches R16.
    Roma - 4 goal win tops the group. Any win clinches R16.
    CSKA Moscow - Need a win to keep R16 alive. A 0-0 or a 1-1 draw clinches Europa
    FC Viktoria Plzen - Win or 2-2 (or higher) draw to keep Europa league alive. R16 is already dead.

    Group H
    Juventus - Win and United dropping points tops the group. Draw clinches R16
    Manchester United - Win and Valencia dropping points clinches R16. Win or Juve dropping points keeps top of group alive.
    Valencia - Win keeps top of group alive. Win or United dropping points keeps R16 alive. Win or Young Boys dropping points clinches Europa league at worst
    Young Boys - Win and Valencia dropping points keep Europa league alive. R16 is already out.

    Losing to Red Star farmers felt like armageddon, yet Liverpool would go through with a win on match day five.

    Does Athens routinely have miniature bombs going off during matches?

    Mina has been red hot and Valencia not surprisingly are stringing together a few wins. They might just pose a threat to Juve.

    AEK down to 10 and Tadic converts the penalty.

    lol misread it.

    Roma and Real are both through to the R16. So now its for 1st in the group. Could be interesting I guess.

    I see enough of City watching the PL. usually aim for non PL matchups on CL days if United isn't on

    Both fan groups are clowns. Ajax fans yesterday patrolled the street of Athens and picked fights.

    I might have to turn this game off. I'm not sure if I can stand Fellaini without the afro.

    Depay just missed a very easy tapin :facepalm:
    Ndombele gifted him the goal really.

    Lyon the better team so far, just like in the first leg.

    Serious question: why is Roma's attendance so much greater than Lazio's?

    Both Rashford and Martial wasted chances by either poor decision making or taking too long with their decision.

    Best player on both sides is Ndombele again. He's amazing.
    Though Aouar and Fekir are shining too, but Ndombele just does it every time he touches the ball.
