Man City and RB Leipzig have both qualified with two games to spare. City will secure first place in the group if they win/draw at home to the Bundesliga club on Nov. 28.
Red Star and Young Boys are both stuck on one point and are left to battle it out for a place in the Europa League. The two teams meet in Switzerland next up, and if there’s a winner they will seal third place.
Barcelona, on nine points, missed the chance to book their place on Matchday 4 when losing to Shakhtar, but will secure it with a win at home to FC Porto next time out. A draw will also be enough if Shakhtar draw/lose against Antwerp.
FC Porto also have nine points and will be though on Nov. 28 with a win in Barcelona if Shakhtar draw/lose against Antwerp. A draw for FC Porto is also enough if Shakhtar lose.
Shakhtar still have hope with FC Porto to come on the final day, and they cannot be eliminated on Matchday 5 as the head to head against Barca is level. However, the likelihood is they will need to win both matches to finish in the top two.
Antwerp have been eliminated and must beat Shakhtar to have any chance of Europa League football.
