Champions League 2014 live at the Highlander Pub

The group stages of the 2017/2018 edition of the Champions League are about the be completed. Most of the big favourites have already claimed their spots for the knock out stage in February and March next year but on the final round on December 5th and December 6th there will be a few more questions to be answered. Here is our brief analysis of the situations in the gourps respectively. 

Group A has Manchester United already qualified. They are hosting CSKA Moscow in their last match. The Russians have a tiny chance to go through if they don't lose in England but need to hope that Benfica records their first victory against Basel of Switzerland. Both CSKA Moscow and Basel are equal in points, the Swiss with a slight advantage in goal difference and in the direct clashes against the Moscow club. 

Group B has the grands of Bayern Munich and PSG who have already qualified in the next stage. The final round has the rematch between those two and just for the sake of bit of pride and dignity the Bavarian Giants will look for a smal revenge after the humiliating 3:0 defeat in Paris. Otherwise, Celtic looks in a pretty good position to continue their campaign in Europa League next year. They just need to tie or lose by less than 3 goals at home against Anderlecht. 

The situation in group C looks more or less set. Chelsea is already in the next stage. Roma should be there too. They only need to win their last game at home against the big underdogs of Qarabag (Azerbaijan). This looks quite easy on paper but shocking results here are not excluded. In any case Atletico needs to win their next match in London against Chelsea and hope that Roma does not win at home. Hopefully that won't be the case. 

Group D is probably a bit more dramatic than Group C. This drama depends a lot on the Barcelona performance who will be hosting Sporting Lisbon. Barca is already in the next stage. The other team in that group should be Juventus but they have to win their last match in Athens against Olympiacos or hope that Barcelona does not lose at home on Tuesday. The tension here will be on until the final whistle.  

Group E has Liverpool and Sevilla who are almost in the knock out stage. Liverpool needs at least a draw against Spartak Moscow at home and Sevilla needs to win away at the super underdogs from Maribor. A shocking result here is not entirely excluded. 

Group F. The story is a bit complicated here. Napoli still has a chance to go through. They need a big favour from Manchester City (already qualified). If City wins in Ukraine and Napoli wins at Feyenoord the Italians will be in the next stage. The answer will be given on Wednesday, December 6th. 

Group G has already Besiktas in the next stage. Porto should be the other team to reach knock out games. They are at home against Monaco and need a victory at any cost. Otherwise, they are risking their spot to be taken by Leipzig. The Germans are at home against Besiktas and for the Turks this will be only a game of honour. 

Group H like group B has both teams already qualified. The reigning European Champions from Real Madrid will finish second behind Tottenham though. And this is something not many of us expected at the start of the season. Anyways, the final match of Los Blancos is against Borussia Dortmund and this clash always looks quite promising and intense. 

Below you can see the schedule of all the games from the upcoming final round. It looks most likely that we will be showing only 3 games on Tuesday (Roma vs. Qarabag, Olympiacos vs Juventus and Bayern Munich vs PSG) and 3 games on Wednesday December 6th (Liverpool vs Spartak Moscow, Feyenoord vs Napoli and Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund). For any of the games marked as (upon request)* just shoot us an email to see whether we will be able to broadcast it.

* upon request - the games that are marked "upon request" need to be requested at least a couple of hours before the start of those. Once you request them you need to be at The Highlander at least 30 minutes before kick off time (or, for the late games 30 min before our closing time)! We cannot guarantee their broadcasting on our screens if you arrive at The Highlander in the last minute before their start or even worse - when they have already started

 

** already requested - the games that have been "already requested" might not be necessarily televised if the people who have requested them fail to arrive 30 min prior to the start of those games (or, for the late games 30 before the closing time). Generally those games coincide with many other venues and sometimes other guests end up requesting additional events in the last minute. Certainly we accomodate them in case the customers who have made the original requests do not show up.
