Scores on the doors around the Champions League
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool
Napoli 2-0 Rangers
As it stands Napoli should win the group, unless Liverpool can beat by them by better than 4-1 in the final group stage match on Tuesday 1 November. Napoli should be on 15 points if they hold on to beat Rangers (this is likely), while if Liverpool beat Ajax they’ll finish on 12, meaning they’d need to beat Napoli in the final game of the season to level their tally of 15, and to win the head-to-head better the 4-1 tonking the Italians gave them in the opening game.
Liverpool could still fail to qualify if Ajax end up beating them here.
Rangers meanwhile are in a similar situation to have any dreams of reaching the Europea League, needing Ajax to continue losing to Liverpool, and then needing to beat the Dutch team in the final game of the group stage by better than the 4-0 humbling they received in Amsterdam.
Brugge 0-4 Porto (finished)
Atlético 1-2 Leverkusen
Atleti are going out as it stands, on four points and losing to Bayer Leverkusen. Brugge or Oporto, on 10 and 9 points respectively can both win the group, while Bayer, on 6 as it stands are still out of contention for the second round, as they were beaten home and away by Oporto.
Inter 4-0 Viktoria Plzeň (finished)
Barcelona 0-2 Bayern Munich
Barcelona are definitely out of the knock-out stages and definitely in the Europa League, with Viktoria Plzen on no points, Barça’s four points mean they get that consolation guaranteed.
If Bayern end up winning here, which they look likely to do, then they’ve won the group, on 15 points, with Inter back on 10.
Eintracht Frankfurt 2-1 Marseille
Tottenham 0-1 Sporting Lisbon
Proper open group this one, with Sporting Lisbon top on 9 as it stands, with Tottenham and Eintracht on 7 and Marseille on 6. Anything could happen.
