Preview

Atletico Madrid find themselves in a dreadful position on the final matchday, as they'll need to grab a win at Chelsea and hope winless Qarabag somehow manage to beat AS Roma in Italy.

Qarabag's best result on the road was the draw in Madrid, and the Giallorossi―who know exactly what type of result they need―won't overlook the minnows from Azerbaijan. Per OptaPaolo, the team enters the match with plenty of momentum:

Besiktas have already locked up top spot in Group G, which could give Bundesliga side RB Leipzig the edge. The Red Bulls are tied with Porto on points and will play host to the Turks, while Monaco travel to Portugal.

Porto have the advantage in goal differential and Monaco have already been eliminated, so on paper, the Dragons should be able to hold on. They have to win to be sure, however, and maintain their goal advantage.

Shakhtar need only a point at home against City to secure their ticket for the next round, with Napoli needing a win in the Netherlands against Feyenoord to have any hope of advancing. City have no need to take any risks, although manager Pep Guardiola will want to maintain some of the team's momentum ahead of the derby against Manchester United.
