Champions League: What Liverpool and Chelsea need to do to make knockouts

The Salzburg teenager enjoys an outstanding campaign and has scored eight goals in five Champions League games to go 16-for-14 in the Austrian Bundesliga. "The next game where a clean sheet would be useful is already around the corner, against Salzburg on Tuesday".

The teams will be divided into two pots, one will consist of all of the group stage winners, the other all the runner-ups. Ajax now sit at the top of Group H, while Valencia are two points behind in second.

Chelsea will take on Lille at Stamford Bridge following a 3-1 defeat to Everton in the Premier League last weekend.

Inter have their fate in their own hands when they greet Barca on Tuesday, while Dortmund - level with Inter on points but behind on the head-to-head - entertain Slavia Prague needing to outpoint the Serie A side. Bottom-placed Benfica have got all even with Lyon and this week, should they get a heavy win against Zenit they will be even with them too.

The result from the Ajax vs Valencia clash at the Johann Cruyff Stadium on Wednesday night will decide who tops Group H in this year's UEFA Champions League. It was a tough game against Salzburg the first time around so we know this is not going to be easy.

Inter Milan will join them as runners-up if they beat Barca.

In the face of backlash against the commercial, actor Sean Hunter , who played the role of the " Peloton Husband", has spoken out. We watch her get on the bike. "My friend texted me today declaring that I'm 'a symbol of the patriarchy, '" he said.

Atletico will clinch the runners-up place if they beat Lokomotiv Moscow at home, while Bayer Leverkusen will need to beat Juventus and hope the Spaniards drop points. But Lyon - who are away to Leipzig - can still qualify if they pick up more points than Zenit from the final game.

Group "C" sees a three-way fight to join Manchester City.

Here are the best bets for this week's Champions League fixtures.

"We still have a chance to stay in Europe, hopefully in the Champions League", he said.

All three teams know that a win would put them through.

"I think that's a message for us to answer". That will be especially concerning as most of the back four are considered legitimate backups for the first team. Only Bayern Munich and Tottenham Hotspur have scored more goals than the Austrian side in the Champions League in 2019/20, but it's going to be hard for them to stop Liverpool.
