Some of Europe’s biggest sides face an uncertain future in the Champions League with just two games remaining in the group stages, including the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Tottenham and Valencia.

In Group C, billed as the Group of Death, Napoli and Liverpool are sitting first and second with six points while PSG are sitting in third with five, just one point ahead of Red Star Belgrade.

The upcoming matchday will see PSG host Liverpool at the Parc des Princes in an enormous fixture for the Parisians.

In another of the Champions League‘s most difficult groups, Group B, Tottenham will need a gargantuan effort to progress to the Last 16 as they are currently third with four points, with Barcelona top on 10 and Inter in second with seven.

It’s essential that the Harry Kane-led side are able to beat the Nerazzurri at Wembley in matchday five and then score at the Camp Nou in the final game.

Group H, meanwhile, was blown open as Manchester United completed a comeback to win 2-1 away at Juventus, a result which brought Jose Mourinho‘s side within two points of the Bianconeri at the top of the group.

The only way in which Valencia will be able to advance is if they go to Italy and beat Juventus before playing United at the Estadio Mestalla in the final round.

There is patently a lot still left to play for in these final two matchdays, with one side from each group set to drop down to the Europa League if they finish in third place.
