  • Tottenham have to beat Inter Milan at home on Matchday Five to stay in the competition
  • If Tottenham beat Inter by better than 2-1 – the score when the sides met on Matchday One – they can progress on head to head by matching Inter’s result at home to PSV when they travel to already-qualified Barcelona on Matchday Six
  • However, if Tottenham beat Inter by worse than 2-1 – eg, 3-2, meaning the Italians would have scored more away goals – they would need to better their result in the final round of games
  • If Tottenham beat Inter 2-1, they must match Inter’s result on Matchday Six and record a better overall goal difference

  • Liverpool will qualify with a game to spare if they win at PSG and Red Star fail to beat Napoli in Naples on Matchday Five
  • If Liverpool lose in Paris and Napoli fail to beat Red Star, they will qualify for the round of 16 if they beat the Italians by any score on Matchday Six
  • If Liverpool lose in Paris and Napoli beat Red Star on Matchday Five, they will definitely qualify if they beat the Italians by a scoreline of better than 1-0 on Matchday Six as that will give them a better overall head-to-head record between the two
  • If Liverpool lose in Paris and Napoli beat Red Star on Matchday Five, then Liverpool beat Napoli and PSG draw at Red Star on Matchday Six, all three sides will finish on nine points. In that scenario, points in head-to-head matches, followed by goal difference, would be used to separate the teams
