7 sides can claim a Champions League last 16 place tonight

Hasta siete equipos podrían clasificarse hoy para los octavos de final de la Champions League.

Clubs from Groups A, B, C and D are in Champions League action this evening with seven clubs on the cusp of confirming a place in the last 16.

As we go into match-day 4 of the 2017/18 Champions League, seven sides are close to mathematically securing a place in the last 16 of the competition.

These are the series of results needed for the seven teams in question to progress in the tournament:

Group A

A win for Manchester United over Benfica with a FC Basel win in st. Jakobs Park against CSKA will see Mourinho's men advance. This combination would also see the Swiss outfit secure a place in the last 16 who are three points ahead of CSKA.

Teams on the cusp of a last 16 place: Manchester United abd FC Basel.

We're confronted with a similar situation in Group B where a PSG win at home against Anderlecht will see the Ligue 1 side progress with Bayern Munich being able to join them with a win over Celtic in Glasgow.

Teams on the cusp of a last 16 place: PSG and Bayern Munich.

Grupo C

Group C is slightly more complex: A Chelsea win away to AS Roma will ensure a place in the next stage for the side from London SW6. A home win for the Serie A side would see them move closer to a last 16 place with their trip to Madrid to face Atleti in match-day becoming of vital importance. To ensure a "match-ball", Atlético Madrid have to beat Qarabag this evening. 

Next round candidate: Chelsea.

Grupo D is a mirror image of that of A and B with a win in Greece enough for Barça to stake a last 16 spot. Juventus will also progress by defeating Portuguese outfit Sporting de Portugal in Lisbon.

This, however is football with unpredictability always at the fore. Many of the seven sides will potentially have to wait for match-day 5 before sealing their place in the next round of the tournament.
