Liverpool need to avoid defeat to Spartak Moscow to seal their passage to the last 16

A day later, Liverpool can secure top spot in Group E by beating Spartak.

Basel joined United in the next phase from Group A by downing Benfica 2-0.

Tournament favourites Paris Saint-Germain are showing signs of fallibility, after the French outfit suffered their second loss in just four days as they were beaten 3-1 at Bayern Munich.

Chelsea's 1-1 home draw with Atletico Madrid proved costly as Roma took advantage to top Group C.

Diego Simeone's team, twice a finalist in the last four years, must beat Chelsea away and needs Roma to draw or lose against Azerbaijani team Qarabag at home.

The Premier League's representatives are flying high in the Champions League this season and all five look set to romp into the final 16.

A draw would guarantee Shakhtar a place in the last 16 whilst City are already assured of finishing top and have the small matter of the Manchester derby at the weekend.

Winter storm possible in Northland on Monday
The watch included the Iron Range, areas of the Arrowhead away from Lake Superior, and International Falls. Snowfall of 1 to 3 inches expected, along with areas of blowing snow.


Both sides have conceded 17 goals in their five group games to date but Celtic were comfortable winners of the reverse fixture and can do the double over the Belgians who must win by at least a three-goal margin to have any hope of making it through to the Europa League.

DISAPPOINTSGermany's representation in the last 16 could come down to just one team, Bayern Munich, after disappointing campaigns from the Bundesliga's best - Borussia Dortmund in particular.

Leipzig still has a chance to progress on its European debut but needs a favor from Monaco at Porto in Group G. Leipzig, which is level on points with Porto, hosts group victor Besiktas on Wednesday and will only go through if it secures more points than the Portuguese team. Sevilla only need to draw with Maribor in Slovenia to qualify for the knockout stage, and would go through as group winners if they win and Liverpool slip up. However, if they fail to win and the Spanish club beat Chelsea, then it would likely send Roma out at the group stage.

Amid sluggish ticket sales, Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco has been urging fans to show up at the Stadio Olimpico.

Barcelona is already confirmed as group winners.

But it heads to Athens on Tuesday still needing a win to definitely progress. A point will confirm European football in the new year for the Scottish side, whilst Anderlecht can leapfrog them into third on goal difference providing they win 3-0.
