The penultimate round of group stage action kicks off in the Uefa Champions League on Tuesday, with knockout qualification places to be settled across Europe.

Heavyweights Juventus and Bayern Munich are already assured of progression in this season’s UCL.

But there’s work still to do for the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona in the battle to reach the last 16.

Group E

It’s a Champions League procession for German hotshots Bayern Munich, as they take their red-hot form to Dynamo Kyiv on Tuesday night.

Four fixtures, four wins and 17 goals rattled in tells the tale of the tape for the Bundesliga side, whose only choice is whether to take their foot off the pedal or not in Ukraine.

Not so for fallen giants Barcelona, who have at least recovered from an appalling start to notch back-to-back wins in Group E, giving them the upper hand on Camp Nou visitors Benfica.

Group F

The top two clubs in Group F of the Champions League face a tense evening on Spanish soil, as Villarreal and Manchester United both know the knockouts are on the horizon if either of them can snatch all three points.

It’s also a start to life for the English Premier League side without boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was fired after a miserable run of domestic form.

Italian underdogs Atalanta are out to jump on any slip-ups from the pacesetters, as they travel to Young Boys still firmly in the hunt for progression.

Group G

It’s all to play for between the four clubs in Group G of the Champions League, with knockout qualification well and truly up in the air heading into the penultimate round of action on Tuesday.

Red Bull Salzburg hold a two-point cushion at the top of the table but face a tricky away task against shock French champions Lille, who lie in second place.

Beneath them on goal difference are Wolfsburg, whose trip to Sevilla should also be more demanding than the Spanish side’s fourth place in the standings suggests.

Group H

Juventus can be thankful they’ve done the hard yards already in Group H of the Champions League, as they travel to play the reigning UCL winners on Tuesday night.

A perfect winning record ensures a stress-free night at Stamford Bridge for the Serie A giants, who face a Chelsea side also on course for an attempt to seal back-to-back continental crowns in the new year.

Minnows Malmo continue their hunt for a first point of the campaign when they host Zenit St Petersburg.
