Real Madrid 

Borussia Dortmund train at the Santiago Bernabéu ahead of their Champions League match against Real Madrid.

If Real Madrid draw or lose on Wednesday against Borussia Dortmund they will finish second in their group and avoid PSG, Benfica, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Dortmund, as well as Atlético and Barcelona (as teams from the same country). 

Atlético and Barcelona

Atlético could face PSG, Benfica or Manchester City (along with the other yet to be confirmed runners up). Barcelona meanwhile could play the same sides, but with Bayern Munich in place of Manchester City. 


Sevilla are not yet guaranteed to go through, but could do so in first or second place. If Juventus win, and Sevilla don't lose by more than a goal against Lyon, they'll be certain of second spot, which would also see them avoid many of the big names.
