Familiar route to Milan
Two seasons ago, Atalanta lost its first three matches in the group stage, tied for fourth and then achieved two consecutive victories to qualify. In this cycle, AC Milan repeated those first five steps and could star in a fantastic comeback until reaching the second place still on the line in Group B. But it is a difficult goal, as the Rossoneri have to beat Liverpool. , who won the first five matches of the group stage for the first time, and expects a tie between second-placed Porto and Atletico Madrid in the other group match.

Luka Modric will become The 43rd player reached 100 Champions League matches If he plays on Tuesday in the first place match for Real Madrid against Inter.

The fifth day. Interestingly, the white team won 23 of the 24 matches in which Kroos scored.

Xavi hopes he will not repeat the elimination
You have to go back to the 2000/01 season to find out the last time Barcelona failed to get past the group stage, but the risk of disqualification was no greater this time. Xavi Hernandez, then at the 20-year-old, was part of the last Barcelona squad to suffer this cruel fate, and the new coach now understands that it will take a win at Bayern Munich to pass the groups if his opponent is more direct. Benfica beat bottom club Dynamo Kiev in the other Group E match.

However, the solution is simple for the four contenders: the two frontrunners, LOSC Lille and Salzburg, must avoid defeat, while the two contenders, Sevilla and Wolfsburg, must win to advance to the eighth final.
