The Champions League deciders
After another couple of days of astonishing Champions League action, everything remains in the balance for all four English teams, going into the final two rounds of the Champion’s League group matches. With one home match remaining for each of the four English teams, each side faces their own unique challenge – with a coveted place in the knockout rounds still in reach.
Manchester City are in the driving seat, but have not guaranteed qualification yet. Pep’s free scoring side will also be keen to secure top spot and the easier last 16 tie, so their final group match against Hoffenheim still carries some importance.
United’s stunning win over Juventus has put them in pole position to qualify, but they have struggled at Old Trafford in European matches this year. With five minutes of normal time remaining United looked like they would need a win away at Valencia to progress, a far from simple task. The late comeback has transformed the group, and with Juventus now needing to beat Valencia themselves, a win against Young Boys could secure the red devils their place in the knockouts.
Liverpool’s surprise defeat to Red Star leaves their group in the balance, and one of the big guns could easily drop into the Europa League. With matches against PSG away and Napoli at home, the final match at Anfield really could be make-or-break for Klopp’s side. Liverpool currently sit level top with Napoli, but PSG are only a point beyond and desperate to progress themselves, with their star-studded side led by Neymar.
Spurs face the toughest challenge of all the English sides, needing to beat both Inter Milan and Barcelona to stand a chance of progressing to the last 16. The match at Wembley against Inter is pivotal to their chances, and a win will set up a fascinating match away at already qualified Barcelona in the final matchday.
