A massive game for us in the Champions League.
Champions League Group G: How it stands
TUE 8 DEC 2015
The Chelsea victory in Israel on Matchday 5, coupled with Dynamo Kiev's 2-0 away win in Porto means Group G is finally balanced going into this week's final round of fixtures.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) the top two in the group - Chelsea and Porto - meet at Stamford Bridge while Dynamo Kiev play at home to Maccabi Tel Aviv.
As it stands, us, Porto and Dynamo Kiev can all still qualify for the knockout stages.
We currently top the group on goal difference but are level with Porto on 10 points. Dynamo Kiev are in third place with eight points.
For Jose Mourinho's side the mathematics are relatively simple: A win against the Portuguese side will see us progress as group winners, while a draw would guarantee qualification although not in top spot. We will qualify as runners-up if we lose against Porto and Dynamo Kiev fail to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv. If Dynamo win and we lose, it is third place for us and a passage to the Europa League.
The eventual outcome of the group becomes more complicated if our match against Porto ends in a draw and Dynamo beat Maccabi. If that happens, Chelsea, Porto and Dynamo Kiev will all finish on 11 points.
What is important to note is that if more than two teams are level on points, a mini-league is created using only the results involving those three sides and, as Maccabi would have lost all of their games, the group will come down purely to goal difference in games involving Chelsea, Porto and Dynamo Kiev.
Taking that into account, our goal difference ahead of the final round of fixtures is 0, Porto are on -1 and Dynamo Kiev are on +1. So we would end the group stage as runners up behind the Ukrainians with Porto going into the Europa League as the third-placed side.
