The UEFA Champions League group stage has arrived at its finale for the 2020-21 season.
With Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea already qualified for the last 16, Manchester United were eliminated by RB Leipzig in their final group game to make it through to the Europa League.
Group B has Borussia Monchengladbach, Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Real Madrid can all go through. Group A is intriguing too as RB Salzburg v Atletico Madrid will be one heck of a showdown.
The Premier League clubs are among the favorites to win it all but reigning champions Bayern Munich, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund are all favored heavily with the bookies to be crowned champions of Europe.
The last few months has seen the Champions League games take place in midweek as countries in Europe which are allowing fans in stadiums have done so during UEFA competitions.
