Europe’s elite club competition is in its final round of the group stages, and here is where both temperatures and drama are sure to escalate. Eleven clubs have already confirmed their spots in the next round from the UCL group stage, with five spots still up for grabs.
With action going on till the last matchday, we take a look at what all we can expect from the UCL group stage.
Major Teams Could Miss Out
This may sound pretty unusual in the group stages, but there are a few teams who are in the cusp of elimination. Top teams like Atletico Madrid, FC Barcelona and AC Milan are on the verge of exit, thanks to their below par performances. While FC Barcelona only need a win against a giant club like Bayern Munich to qualify, Atletico Madrid and Milan would firstly need to win themselves and then hope the other results go in their favour as well.
Headline Matches That Will Steal The Show
The final group matches not only bring in the uncertainty of elimination, but it also brings in unparalleled excitement the competition is famously known for. With FC Barcelona facing Bayern Munich and AC Milan taking on Liverpool in their do-or-die matches, expect some drama ready to unfold on the pitch.
While many may have disregarded Group G when the fixtures were announced, it has surely got the eyes of all in the final group stage round. Consisting of teams such as Lille, RB Salzburg, Sevilla and Wolfsburg, this group has one thing special – all the teams have a chance to make it to the next round in their final game. It’ll be interesting to see who will qualify.
Time will tell who will proceed, but till then let’s enjoy the beautiful sport and this competition.
