Already through as group winners: Bayern Munich,Internazionale,Real Madrid,Barcelona,Arsenal
Already through: Bayer Leverkusen,Benfica,APOEL Nikosia,AC Milan.

Teams who can still make it: Napoli and Man City(group A)
Lille,CSKA and Trabzonspor(Group B)
Man united as Basel(group C)
Ajax and Olympique Lyonnais(group D)
Valencia and Chelsea (group E)
Borussia Dortmund,Olympiakos and Marseille(group F)
Zenit St.petersburg and Porto(group G)

Teams who can make the Europa League: Bate Borisov and Viktoria Plzen in Group H


Thats 27 out of 32 teams going into matchday 6 with a chance to win a group,make it through,get third spot or perhaps crucially knock a team from their own group out so they don't meet later on,or who they could face in next season's Super Cup.

I see Napoli, Lille, Man U, Ajax, Dortmund and Porto going through, but that Valencia/Chelsea game will be very hard to call.

One of the most exciting final group there has been for a while! You hardly ever have an English needing a final game win but now there is 3! Great Champions League so far!

Valencia drew at Old Trafford 1-1 last season.......

That's why I can't predict it, but then again we tend to pretty much throw the last game as we are usually already through.

I have a feeling we will rest players after the Basel game, and put out our best side. They need to be respected, and defeated. I don't mind if we end up finishing second, because I've always felt that to be the best, you have to beat the best.

There aren't many players that would help their CL team that wouldn't be cup tied anyway but I agree with Wade.

Nah,i think they will get Basel or Valencia or Napoli.....................(tongues in both cheeks)

Real Madrid have won trophies,not sure what thats all about

According to UEFA rules,Man City could buy 1 player who has played in the Europa League who would be eligable.There are some decent players who haven't played in any European competition this year,a handful play for Santos,2 in particular,Ganso and Neymar.No Juventus or Liverpool players played in Europe,or Wolfsburg or Werder Bremen or Hamburg or Espanyol among others.

I still love how in 2008 they spent 250 million odd,a year later it was ATLETICO MADRID who won 2 trophies and lost a third final,Real Madrid won nothing.

Shame,poor Atletico Madrid fans,they haven't beaten Real since October 1999.Must be horrible.

I really enjoyed the Chelsea game, probably the best football they've played all season! Finally AVB has realised that Drogba is important and he can't keep playing Torres.

I'm not AVB's biggest fan but not many managers would drop Lampard in a game like that, IMO it was the right decision as he is declining but it was good to see.

Yeah, he needs something no Chelsea manager gets, TIME! He is part of the rebuilding at Chelsea and they need to give him a chance, like I said not many managers would leave those 2 out of such an important game. Oh and Mata is amazing!

No.He is a flop at international level. And look who played with him during his peak @ Chelsea: MAKALELE!,BALLACK!,ESSIEN!,DECO! Players who have been there,done that.

Did anybody see Marseille,what a comeback,it was like Liverpool vs Olympiakos from 2004/05,2 late goals.Olympiakos needed Dortmund to avoid defeat,typical Germans can't do anything right.

That goes without saying, I hate Lampard playing for England, he's a slow crapper version of Gerrard. It annoys when people think he is better when all he does is take pens and stand on the edge of the box for the whole game. I really hope Capello doesn't start him at the Euro's

4-3-3 with Gerrard Parker and Milner or if Milner plays out wide then Wilshere instead.

I can see City beating Bayern tonight... 2-0. Bayern will rest some of their players as they're already through. It's all on Napoli then.

Villarreal are playing an under strength team.Well,IF City don't make it,lets just clarify two things.

1.The old 'Top 4',where in the UCL,year in year out,no worries about missing out,could sign anyone they wanted,earned the top seeds due to their regular appearances,benefited from Calciopoli.Keep in mind,it took them years to get equipped to European competition,heck Chelsea lost a UEFA Cup ties to Viking Stavanger and 1 of the Tel Aviv teams.

2.Spurs had the rub of the green.When they faced Inter,Inter had a long injury list,as did AC Milan when they faced Spurs.City haven't faced an injury hit Napoli,the key players were fit and healthy.

True but its going to have no effect on the Champions League anyway. Its going to be Madrid or Barca.

Dont think either Manchester Clubs will give a crap about the UEFA cup and they will focus on the Premier League now.

The worst performance for England in Europe in recent years no doubt, but tell me honestly if you think any of this 3 teams have slight chance of winning the UCL, Inter is a very bad form,far away of the team that won in 2010, Napoli nade his tournament by qualyifying to the final round good side but if they draw a big team that's it, Milan could be, but they might focus in the league instead, besides they're missing Cassano and Robihno and Pato are inconsistent in big games

Not a chance they'll win it,but the fact that they were the best performer is a step in the right direction.Baby Steps.

And to Pumpkinhead and Wade Barrett,I could have been far more ruthless.Even the pundits on ESPN Soccer Net have the same views that Fergie's Carling Cup-like team selections and Mancini's lack of UEFA competition nouse are at fault.

Funny how the suddenly all is well with the Champions League because 2 Spanish and 2 English teams are out,but we'll see if the mood stays that way when we get a 'predictable' Barca/Real final.This tournaments structure still needs work.

There are strong claims that there could be some foul play in the Lyon/Zagreb game.Another Marseille 1993?

anyways,here is an article I would like you guys to read and respond too,it definately is debatable,but at times valid in message.


Things we learned from the Champions League group stages


ANALYSIS
By Peter Staunton


THE GAP IS CLOSING

At the conclusion of the group stages of last season's Champions League all eight top-seeded teams qualified for the round of 16. This time around, with the elimination of recent winners Porto and Manchester United, only three quarters of the pot one teams remain destined for the draw next Friday.

Last time around, in the shape of Tottenham, Schalke and Copenhagen, only three teams from pot three made it to the knockout rounds while none from pot four made it past the group games.

In 2011-12 the number of teams to progress from the bottom two pots has risen to five with the inclusions of Zenit St Petersburg, Bayer Leverkusen and Basel from pot three and Napoli and APOEL from the lower echelons.

The breakdown of the qualification scenarios are also revealing. The gap between the group winners and the third-placed team last season stood at an average of 7.25 points. This term the average was cut to 4.25; group winners are a full win worse off, on average, this season than last.

Furthermore, the average goal difference of the last 16 participants has been shaved from 6.5 in the group stages last year to 4.3 this; on average, two and a bit goals fewer.

There is little doubt, then, that the Champions League has become a more hostile place for competing teams. There is no longer a margin for error for the big boys, as Manchester United and Porto found out to their detriment.

The round of 16 may have become a less attractive proposition on paper for fans and analysts but the qualifying teams have emerged from their respective listings on merit.

Teams like APOEL and Napoli have helped elevate the standard of the competition as a whole as complacency and error, on the part of the fancied sides, have been ruthlessly punished.


DORTMUND, LILLE AND PORTO FAILED TO LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS

Nuri Sahin, Gervinho, Yohan Cabaye, Adil Rami, Radamel Falcao and Andre Villas-Boas were some of the most prominent names being discussed in football circles last season as Borussia Dortmund, Lille and Porto emerged as the most exciting and promising teams in Europe.

That sextet has moved on to pastures new and the teams they left behind could not conjure their magic of one season ago this term. It is hugely disappointing. The prospect of seeing BVB, LOSC and Porto in the Champions League was a mouth-watering one. With aggressive and talented players and an adherence to bright, attacking football, those three teams were supposed to disrupt the order in Europe's most prominent competition. Alas, it never came to pass and all three exit at the group stages with a whimper.

In 18 matches, they won four between them. All three failed to recover from the loss of key individuals. Furthermore, those remaining did not look as sharp or, more worryingly, as capable as they did last term.

The Champions League is an unforgiving environment. Dortmund have learned that basic defensive tenets need to be acknowledged. Lille have learned that in order to be competitive, intricate football needs to be converted into goals. And Porto know now what they knew before. You cannot continually sell your most important players, and, in this case, your manager, and expect to compete.

Whether this trio of teams comes again remains to be seen. As devastating as the blow is for the clubs involved, their exits comes with regret and sadness on behalf of their fans and analysts.

They should have done better.


REAL MADRID AND BARCELONA CAN ONLY STOP EACH OTHER

Out of sight in La Liga, are Real Madrid and Barcelona going to go out of sight in the Champions League too? Last season they were drawn together at the semi-final stage. It is difficult to see how any of the other teams left in the pot can pass either one of them over two legs.

Between them, the Clasico participants dropped two points, scored 39 goals and conceded six in the group stages. They were assured of their progress to the last 16 two thirds the way through their section fixtures.

Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola were afforded the opportunity to field their second string outfits for their final group encounters, meaning they could each keep their powder dry for this Saturday's Clasico in the Primera Division.

It's long been the case that the superior team from this elite band of two would win the Spanish title. Now, the day looms ever closer that the superior team of the two will win the Champions League too. At full strength, each side has defensive resolution, midfield creativity, ruthless finishing ability and options from the bench.

Spain's two super clubs are now Europe's super clubs. They can only stop each other. Saturday will be a useful indicator on which side has the upper hand. Until now, this season, it has been Real Madrid and the Special One's outfit remain narrow favourites to edge the Catalans out of all significant trophy contention this term.


YOU CAN'T BEAT A BIT OF LAST-MINUTE DRAMA

The Champions League group stages have, in recent times, felt like a slow march towards inevitability. The seeded teams have been afforded the opportunity to field their second-string sides from as early as the fourth matchday and it's all too rare an occurrence that the sixth round of matches is an event to be anticipated with eagerness.

Nonetheless that was the scenario this time around with the final standings of seven out of the the eight groups going down to the wire. The last 16 qualification picture was not decided until the very last minute. Late goals in Dortmund for Marseille, in Milan for CSKA Moscow and for Basel at home contrived to alter the knockout participants right up to the final whistle.

It was genuinely exciting. The Champions League group stages has, at times, been a procession. It's been uninteresting and, more often than not, groups looked more like Barcelona's one this season than Manchester United's.

So thank you messrs Valbuena, Berezutskiy, Frei, and others, for making the Champions League group stages worth watching all the way to the bittersweet conclusion.


EPL NOT ADEQUATE PREPARATION FOR CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

Aside from their 2-0 win against Norwich in November, Manchester United have failed to score more than once in each of their Premier League matches since the middle of September. Sir Alex Ferguson's team have won only one of their last five matches in all competitions and that came in an insipid 1-0 victory over Aston Villa last weekend.

Yet despite their unappealing football, United are second in the Premier League table. They have been edging out teams like Swansea and Sunderland, like they always do, in the English top flight. It's perpetually been like that, psychologically, for United in their own domestic league. But that veneer of invincibility has been scuffed in Europe this season.

They will be playing their Europa League football, appropriately, in the Europa League. United claimed nine points in the group stages with six of them coming against group whipping boys Otelul Galati. Alas, they have been shown to be the Manchester United of the present and not the Manchester United of the recent past; a team whose reputation has been so masterfully cultivated by Ferguson. In sharp focus, an average team has been eliminated from the competition.

They have been able to extricate their way out of tough situations on the home front, owing in a large part to the diminished quality of the Premier League currently, but have been unable to do likewise in what was ostensibly an easy Champions League group.

Manchester City are out too. They currently lead the EPL standings at a canter. City paid the price for erroneous selections and naivety in their matches against Napoli and Bayern Munich. Roberto Mancini, a Champions League minnow of a manager, was again exposed by his choices. He assumed the pattern of play suitable to league duties, against teams like Wolves and Wigan, would transpose to the Champions League easily. How wrong he was.

The standard of play in the Premier League has given the Manchester clubs a false impression of their abilities and competences.
