Group E: Chelsea to qualify, a pool still very open
The defeat in Zagreb, on the first day, had cost Thomas Tuchel dearly, sacked shortly after. Graham Potter took things in hand to put Since the Blues at the top of their pool. As a result, the London club is one win away from qualifying for the round of 16, in a group where everyone is still in the race. A victory that will have to be won on the lawn of a still undefeated Red Bull Salzburg.

Thirdly, Milan must especially take advantage of this clash between the first two. The Rossoneri are two points behind second place, level with last-placed Dinamo Zagreb, with whom they travel. The Lombard club will have to forget their two consecutive losses against Chelsea without scoring, and remember that they won in the first leg against the Croats. But overall, everything is still very open…

The games : 6:45 p.m.: Red Bull Salzburg – Chelsea, 9 p.m.: Dinamo Zagreb – AC Milan
Group F: Real alone in the world
With three wins and a draw in four matches, Real Madrid have already validated their qualification for the next round. A simple draw on the lawn of Leipzig would even be enough for the Merengues to lock in their first place. The real challenge of this group is in the distance duel between Leipzig and Shakhtar Donetsk, separated by one point and who will face each other on the last day.
The Ukrainian club seem to be leaving with a small lead despite being one point behind, as they will assess at home for this crucial game, and face Celtic on Tuesday. The Scots, good last with a point, can still believe in a qualification in the Europa League, but no more.
Classification : 1. Real Madrid (10pts), 2. RB Leipzig (6pts), 3. Shakhtar Donetsk (5pts), 4. Celtic Glasgow (1pt)
The games : 9 p.m.: Celtic Glasgow – Shakhtar Donetsk and RB Leipzig – Real Madrid

Group G: City already in 8th, Dortmund aims for the feat to join it
Like Real Madrid, Manchester City have already qualified. And like the Merengue, the Citizens only need one point to secure first place and a quieter draw. The formation of Pep Guardiola will be traveling to Dortmund, which can qualify in turn in the event of an exploit. The Germans had posed real problems for the English on the way out.
Tied on points and without a win so far, Sevilla FC and Copenhagen compete on their side for a place in the Europa League, a priori. A victory coupled with a defeat for Dortmund, and the 6th day could offer a reversal of the situation.

Group H: PSG only have to conclude, Juve can no longer miss each other
Hampered by its two draws in a row against Benfica, PSG are tied on points with their Portuguese opponent. Before thinking about first place, the Ile-de-France club must therefore lock in its qualification. And must do it on Tuesday evening, on his lawn, facing Maccabi Haifa, last of the group. A formality on paper, one is tempted to think.
The clash of the evening between Benfica and Juventus, who can not afford to choose anything but a victory to continue to believe in it. The Old Lady has lost three of its first four matches but still has very little hope. He will have to win in Portugal then against PSG to see the 8th. Just that.
Classification : 1. PSG (8pts), 2. Benfica (8pts), 3. Juventus (3pts), 4. Maccabi Haifa (3pts)
The games : 9 p.m.: Benfica – Juventus and PSG – Maccabi Haifa
