The Champions League group phase is nearing its climax, but there are still a number of issues to be decided on Wednesday, including the fate of European heavyweights Real Madrid.

Real Madrid face Monchengladbach (8pm), while its Inter Milan vs Shakhtar Donetsk

On Tuesday, Manchester United, one of 13 teams whose Champions League futures were in the balance on matchday six, were eliminated from the competition.

Who has already qualified?

Man City
Bayern Munich
Borussia Dortmund

RB Leipzig

Who can still qualify?

Atletico Madrid, Red Bull Salzburg, Monchengladbach, Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Atalanta, Ajax.

Group B

This group (B) is ever so tight, with all four teams still in with a chance of qualification heading into this week’s final round of games.

The winners of Real’s home clash with Monchengladbach will top the section, while the visitors only need a point to progress, although that will also suit Madrid, as long as Inter overcome Shakhtar at San Siro.

However, Zinedine Zidane’s side will finish bottom if both they and Shakhtar lose, an unthinkable outcome for a team who have progressed from all 24 groups they have been in during the modern era of the Champions League.

The Ukrainians, meanwhile, will progress with a win, while a draw will also suffice if Real do not win. As for Antonio Conte’s Inter side, anything but a victory will see them eliminated, and even that scenario may not be enough if Real and Monchengladbach play out a draw in the Spanish capital.
