Olympiacos vs Juventus UEFA Champions League Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium (Piraeus).
Juventus drew back-to-back games in the Champions League and they will be heading to Olympiacos for the final group game needing a win to confirm their place in the round of 16.
After starting the group phase with a humbling 3-0 defeat at Barcelona, the Old Lady emerged as front runners for the second spot in the table with wins against Sporting and Olympiacos in subsequent fixtures.
However, the 1-1 draw at Sporting and the goal-less draw against Barca in the previous round made them wait until final group game for confirming the qualification to the knockout phase.
The equation is simple, Juventus must match Sporting's result in-order to qualify.
On the other hand, Olympiacos are eliminated from Europe after managing 1 point from their first 5 games. They lost all their three away games, while a point was earned by holding Barcelona to a goal-less stalemate.
The Greek side will finish at the foot of the table even with a win on Tuesday night.
Barcelona vs Sporting CP UEFA Champions League Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Camp Nou (Barcelona).
Barcelona can field a fringe side for the final group game as they already sealed the number 1 spot in Group D with the goal-less draw against Juventus on matchday 5.
But, it is a must win scenario for Sporting, who are given a lifeline from the back-to-back draw of Juventus. The Portuguese outfit are third in the standings and trail the Serie A champions by 1-point. So, they must pull off a surprise win at Camp Nou hoping the Old Lady sink at Olympiacos.
Barcelona have 11 points in their bag, 3 more than Juve. A better h2h record against the Italians suggest that they remain at top even with a loss on Tuesday.
AS Roma vs Qarabag UEFA Champions League Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Rome).
Roma have an easiest assignment at hand on Tuesday night against an already eliminated Qarabag , but they need to make sure they end up nothing less than three points.
The Serie A giants lost to Atletico 2-0 in the previous round which opened up the race for second qualification spot in the group. Chelsea have already qualified, but Roma and Atletico have everything to play for. With a 2 point cushion against Atleti, all Roma need to do is to win against Qarabag. This also help them to clinch the top spot in the table, if Chelsea fail to take maximum points on matchday 6.
Meantime, a draw here and Atletico win against Chelsea will eliminate Roma from the Champions League.
The debutants Qarabag managed 2 points from their 5 matches so far and they do not have a chance to make it to the Europa League knockouts either. They were thrashed 4-0 by Chelsea last time, which was another indication of their inability to stand the ground against elite teams in the region.
Chelsea vs Atletico Madrid UEFA Champions League Date: Tuesday, 5th December 2017 Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Chelsea versus Atletico Madrid is without a doubt the most significant fixture of matchday six in 2017/18 Champions League group stage.
Chelsea had already qualified for the knockout phase, but they still need a win to confirm the top position in the table if Roma beats Qarabag.
Atletico can only qualify with a win, but their scenario is directly dependant to Roma's result against Qarabag.
If Roma wins against Qarabag, the Spanish team will be eliminated even with a win.
However, if Qarabag manage to hold Roma to a draw, it will be Atletico who progress to the round of 16. The 2-0 win in the previous round put the Spanish giants upfront in the head-to-head with their first meeting ending in a goal-less stalemate.
Qarabag are eliminated from Europe after managing just 2 points from their 5 matches so far.
