Group A

It’s fitting that Young Boys and Cluj face each other in the last round.
Young Boys will be through with a point but for CFR Cluj it has to be a win.
It was 1-1 tie in the first meeting. That won’t be enough for Cluj.

 

CSKA Sofia vs Roma
Young Boys vs CFR Cluj

 

Group B

It’s fitting that Molde and Rapid Wien face each other in the final round.
Rapid Wien will need a win that will make up for a ‘1-0’ defeat in the first meeting against Molde. They are home and should make that count. Nothing but a win will do for Rapid Wien.

 

Rapid Wien vs Molde
Dundalk vs Arsenal

 

Group C

Nothing substantial to play for in Group C but to find out who finishes as the group winner between Slavia Prague and Leverkusen.
We are glad that the two will have their destiny in their own hands.

 

Bayer Leverkusen vs Slavia Prague
Happoel Be’er Sheva vs Slavia Prague

 

Group D

Nothing to play for in Group D but to find the winners.
Benfica and Rangers travel to take on Standard Liege and Lech Poznan (respectively).

Away-goal rule gives Rangers the advantage on the final day if both leading teams come out with a win against teams that have little to no interest left in the competition.

 

Standard Liege vs Benfica
Lech Poznan vs Rangers

 

 

Group E

A win and dropped points in the final match by Granada is the only way PSV can use a win in their final game to win Group E.
Granada wins the group with a win on the final day.

 

PSV vs Omonia Nicosia
PAOL vs Granada

 

Group F

Three teams are alive with Napoli having a 2-point lead.
Real Sociedad made it a complicated end after a 2-2 draw with an already eliminated Rijeka.
The result and Napoli’s 1-1 draw against AZ has given AZ an advantage in the final round.

It finished a 4-1 win for AZ when they faced Rijeka earlier in the group. A repeated outcome will allow AX to take advantage of the ‘Napoli vs Real Sociedad’ match up on the final day. AZ will need a draw if Napoli comes out as the winners.

A win for AZ in the final round makes it a must-win for Real Sociedad against a Napoli side that has already beaten them at home.

Napoli’s advantage is that a win isn’t required for them to go through. A draw will be fine.

 

Napoli vs Real Sociedad
Rijeka vs AZ

Group G

Leicester City and Braga battle for the top spot.
The expectation is Leicester will win against bottom team AEK to win Group G.

 

Braga vs Zorya
Leicester City vs AEK

 

Group H
Lille wins Group H with another win against a Celtic team that are looking likely to complete the group stage without a win.
Should the improbable happen and Lille drops points on the final day, AC Milan can use a win against Sparta Prague to win the group.

 

Celtic vs Lille
Sparta Prague vs AC Milan

Group I
Villarreal are the only side to advance in the group.
Maccabi Tel Aviv and Sivasspor are the teams with something to play for in the final game. 2nd place in Group I is on the line.

Luckily, both teams will have their destiny in their hands.

 

Maccabi Tel Aviv vs Sivasspor
Villarreal Qarabag

 

Group J
Antwerp needs a point against Tottenham to win Group J.
Tottenham will need a home win to do the same.

 

Tottenham vs Antwerp
Ludogorets vs LASK

 

Group K
Dinamo Zagreb are finishing as group winners.
Wolfsberger AC and Feyenoord had 2nd place and promotion from Group K to contest in the final game.

And once against, we are blessed to see the teams have their destiny in their hands.

 

Wolfsberger AC vs Feyenoord
Dinamo Zagreb vs CSKA Moscow

 

Group L
Regardless of the results on the final day, there won’t be any positional changes in the standings in Group L.

 

Hoffenheim vs Gent
Slovan Liberec vs Red Star Belgrade
