Liverpool 1-1 Napoli
Genk 1-4 RB Salzburg

Liverpool – 10 pts
Napoli – 9 pts
RB Salzburg – 7 pts
Genk – 1 pts
Liverpool(the defending champions) leads the group but are far from safe in the Group E.

Liverpool must avoid defeat away against RB Salzburg to secure a place in the knockout round.
RB Salzburg needs a win at home to fancy their chances of making it to the knock-out stage. With a ‘4-3’ defeat against Liverpool in their earlier meeting, goal-difference seem to be in Salzburg’s favor at this point.

Napoli will play at home against a Genk side that has failed to win a match so far. Napoli will be fine with a draw.

Next Round
RB Salzburg vs Liverpool
Napoli vs Genk

To keep their chances of being part of the final 16 teams in the competition, Borussia Dortmund must win at home against an already eliminated Slavia Prague. A Dortmund win in addition to Inter Milan’s failure to get against Barcelona will get Borussia Dortmund in the next round.

Group G
Zenit St. Petersburg 2-0 Lyon
RB Leipzig 2-2 Benfica

RB Leipzig – 10 pts
Zenit St. Petersburg – 7 pts

The task in the final round will be on Lyon and Zenit to grab their place in the Round-of-16. A defeat in the last round would see them miss the Round of 16 if the other is to win their match.

The objective for Zenit St. Petersburg is to grab that right result against a Benfica side that is looking for a third place finish and a possibility of the Europa League Round of 32.

The objective for Lyon will be to get a win against an RB Leipzig team that might want to win the group.

Next Round:
Benfica vs Zenit
Lyon vs RB Leipzig

Group H
Valencia 2-2 Chelsea
Lille 0-2 Ajax

Ajax – 10 pts
Valencia – 8 pts
Chelsea – 8 pts
