The group stages of the Champions League ends on Wednesday, with just just positions left in the Round of 16.

Tuesday's games saw only two places up for grabs as well, as Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, Benfica, Barcelona, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich confirm their spots.

Groups E-H will conclude on Wednesday night, but only two groups remain open, with the chance of advancing to the knockout stages.

Group E

One of the more straightforward groups of the night. Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen have already qualified, with the two teams set to play in Germany. The Ligue 1 side are guaranteed top spot.

In Wembley, Tottenham Hotspur and CSKA Moscow battle it out for the Europa League spot. A draw is good enough for Spurs to advance.

Group F

The match of the night takes place in the Bernabeu as Real Madrid entertain Borussia Dortmund. Both teams have already qualified, with Dortmund knowing a draw will help them top the group.

In Poland, Legia Warsaw must defeat Sporting Lisbon, is they are to overtake the Portuguese side and advance to the Europa League.

Group G

Premier League champions Leicester City are guaranteed top spot. They travel to Portugal to play Porto. In Belgium, Club Brugge play Copenhagen.

The Danish side are guaranteed at least a Europa League spot, and must win in Belgium to have any hope of advancing to the Round of 16. A draw for Porto at home to Leicester will be enough to see the former Champions take the second spot.

Group H

Juventus are guaranteed a spot in the Round of 16, but they may not top the group. A win at home to Dinamo Zagreb will be enough to finish in first place.

Lyon and Sevilla face each other in France looking for the second spot, with the home side needing a two-goal win to advance in place of the Spaniards. If Sevilla win, and Juventus fail to do the same, the Spanish side will be Group H winners.
