The final round of Champions League group stage matches will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday with many teams still hoping to secure their progression to the knockout stage.
Twelve teams have already qualified for the round of 16, leaving just four places up for grabs.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool are through, while Tottenham face a tricky game in Marseille and could still finish first, second or third.
So what are the permutations for each of the eight groups ahead of this week’s games.
Sportsmail takes a deep dive into the potential results.
Chelsea defeated RB Salzburg last week to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages
Liverpool have also qualified with 12 teams having already secured their place in the round of 16
Matches (November 1): Liverpool vs Napoli and Rangers vs Ajax
Qualifying for this group is complete, and Napoli and Liverpool have already qualified.
Similarly, Ajax will finish third and end up in the Europa League, unless Rangers lose six goals.
Top spot is technically not up for grabs, although Liverpool will need to beat Napoli by four goals or more, which seems unlikely given the form of both sides.
Liverpool must beat Napoli by more than four goals to stop the Italians topping the group
Matches (November 1): Porto vs Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen vs Club Brugge
Just like Group A, qualification has already been secured by surprise table-toppers Club Brugge and Porto.
Only one point separates the top two and therefore the Belgian side will finish top if they win, both games are drawn or if Porto lose.
The Portuguese outfit will be first if they win and Brugge don’t or if they draw and the Belgian side lose.
Belgian club Club Brugge has been the surprise story in this season’s Champions League
Matches (November 1): Bayern Munich vs Inter Milan and Viktoria Plzen vs Barcelona
Group C is also tied with Bayern who will finish first, Inter second, Barcelona third and Plzen fourth.
The only danger in this group is if the German champions finish with six wins from six.
Bayern Munich have won five games out of five in the group stage so far this season
Matches (November 1): Sporting Lisbon vs Eintracht Frankfurt and Marseille vs Tottenham
The most exciting group heading into the final matchday with all four teams still able to qualify for the Round of 16.
If Tottenham manage to avoid defeat in France, they will qualify for the knockout stage.
They will finish first if they win, or if both games are tied. If they lose, they can miss out, depending on other results – but they can’t finish fourth.
Antonio Conte’s side face Marseille knowing they can still finish first, second or third
Sporting, who drew 1-1 with Tottenham last week – will qualify for the last 16 if they avoid defeat.
They will go top if they beat Frankfurt and Spurs fail to beat Marseille.
The Portuguese team will finish third if they and Marseille lose, but they will be fourth if Marseille win and they lose.
Last season’s Europa League winners Frankfurt are through if they beat Sporting, while they can finish first if they win and Spurs are defeated in France.
Meanwhile, Marseille must beat Spurs on Tuesday night to qualify and they could still finish first if the game between Sporting and Frankfurt ends in a draw.
It is perhaps notable that the bottom two sides in the group currently have the potential to finish in the top two.
Marseille can also qualify despite being underdogs, with all teams still in with a chance
Matches (November 2): Chelsea vs Dinamo Zagreb and AC Milan vs RB Salzburg
Chelsea have topped Group E after beating AC Milan twice.
Milan face Salzburg in a crunch clash with the Italian giants currently a point ahead and therefore, if they avoid defeat, will qualify with Graham Potter’s side.
Dinamo, meanwhile, cannot qualify despite being three points behind Milan, due to losses to Stefan Pioli’s side along with Salzburg.
AC Milan face a crunch clash with RB Salzburg to decide who will qualify with Chelsea
Stefan Pioli’s team must avoid defeat against the Austrian side to reach the round of 16
Fixtures (November 2): Real Madrid vs Celtic and Shakhtar Donetsk vs RB Leipzig
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are currently one point ahead of Leipzig and will be group winners if they beat Celtic or if Leipzig fail to win.
The German side face Shakhtar in Warsaw and will qualify if they avoid defeat – while if they win and Los Blancos lose, they will overtake the reigning European champions.
However, if Shakhtar manage to beat Leipzig, they will progress to the round of 16 in what would be a remarkable story.
Celtic, meanwhile, are condemned to fourth place and look set to go winless as they return to the Champions League group stage for the first time in five years.
Shakhtar Donetsk will qualify if they beat RB Leipzig in what would be a remarkable story
Champions League holders Real Madrid may not top the group after last week’s loss to Leipzig
Matches (November 2): Manchester City vs Sevilla and FC Copenhagen vs Borussia Dortmund
Group G is already decided with City set to finish first, ahead of Dortmund, while Sevilla are stuck in third place and Copenhagen will finish last.
Pep Guardiola’s side will aim to go unbeaten through the group stage as they chase the trophy that has eluded them so far.
Manchester City have dominated their Champions League group and qualified with ease
Matches (November 2): Juventus vs Paris Saint Germain and Maccabi Haifi vs Benfica
PSG and Benfica have qualified from this group, while Juventus and Maccabi will finish in the bottom two – but the exact positions are yet to be determined.
The Parisians have a better goal difference than Benfica by four so the Portuguese side – unbeaten in all competitions this season must better PSG’s results.
Their meetings both finished 1-1 so if Benfica won by four goals more than PSG’s margin, the result of who topped the table would come down to away goals scored in group matches.
At the bottom, Juventus are currently ahead of Maccabi on goal difference as both teams won their direct home games by a two-goal margin.
This means the Italian giants only need to match the Israeli side’s results and avoid a six-goal swing to avoid facing the embarrassment of not even qualifying for the Europa League.
PSG and Benfica qualified with ease and both sides remain unbeaten on 11 points from five
Juventus crashed in embarrassing fashion and could still end up at the bottom of their group
