Tonight and tomorrow's final matches in the Uefa Champions League group stages will see the eight remaining spots taken for the last 16.

How does the Champions League last 16 draw work?

The top two is decided by a three-way head-to-head. Filling out the rest of the bracket and who takes four of the eight group victor spots is still in play.

Both teams will face off at Old Trafford on Sunday and a win for United will see them cut the lead to five points. If Napoli fail to win then Shakhtar will move onto the knockout phase regardless.

CSKA Moscow and Basel both have 9 points at this moment in time, and the final fixtures on Tuesday evening are tasty.

Chelsea will need a win to assure themselves of top spot in the group.

For Anderlecht to finish third they must win by three clear goals against Celtic.

Chelsea finished second in Group C and as it stands will face Paris Saint-Germain (6), Barcelona (3) or *Besiktas (28).

Barcelona have qualified as Group D winners.

Bayern needed just eight minutes to get their noses in front when Robert Lewandowski stabbed home after David Alaba had got his head to James Rodriguez's cross, and they increased their lead eight minutes before the break. Liverpool need at least a point to be assured of qualifying and winning the group.

If Liverpool lose they are out unless Sevilla are also beaten. Spartak Moscow could still advance, two points behind Sevilla.

Shakhtar just sneak into the top half when it comes to ranking the teams in order of shot efficiency; they now require an average of 7.6 shots per goal, making them the joint 15 most efficient team in the Champions League along with RB Leipzig.

NK Maribor will finish fourth in Group E. Pep Guardiola's men would run out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling. Tottenham and Besiktas complete the set of current qualifiers. United are unbeaten in 20 European home games, but CSKA have won all four matches on their travels this season having come through two rounds of qualifiers. If Porto finish level on points with Leipzig, the Portuguese side will qualify due to their better head-to-head record.

Real qualify as runners-up. PSG beat Bayern 3-0 in Paris and has a far superior goal difference.
