Good Tuesday morning, TSFers. Arsenal play PSV Eindhoven later today in a dead rubber Champions League match. Both sides have already advanced and can rotate / rest players as they see fit. Reuell Walters is expected to make his first team debut for Arsenal.

Here are the qualification scenarios in the other groups:

Group A: Bayern Munich have advanced. Copenhagen and Galatasaray play each other with a win putting the winner through. Manchester United can only advance by beating Bayern and hoping the other two sides draw.

Group C: Real Madrid have advanced. Napoli need a result against Braga to advance. Braga need to win and overturn a net negative three goal difference. Union Berlin cannot advance.

Group D: Real Sociedad and Inter Milan have advanced, both on 11 points. The two sides face each other on MD6 to determine who wins the group. Red Bull Salzburg needs a result against Benfica to remain in the third place, Europa League spot.

Group E: Atletico Madrid and Lazio have advanced and Lazio needs to beat Atleti in Madrid to overtake them for the top spot in the group. Feyenoord will finish third, Celtic last.

Group F: Borussia Dortmund have advanced. PSG control their own fate — a win at Dortmund puts them through. Newcastle need to beat AC Milan at home alongside a PSG draw or loss. To finish third and snatch the Europa spot, AC Milan needs to win and have PSG lose.

Group G: Manchester City and RB Leipzig have both advanced. Young Boys will finish third, Red Star Belgrade fourth.

Group H: Barcelona have advanced. Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk are tied on 9 points and play each other in Portugal on MD6. Shakhtar need to win, Porto need only a result. Antwerp will finish in last and need a result against Barcelona to avoid being the only side in the group stage to go pointless.
