With games remaining on Nov. 27-28 and Dec. 11-12, only Arsenal and Manchester United have clinched berths in the round of 16 and only four teams have been eliminated. Here's how all 32 teams stand after four games.

Qualified for round of 16:
Man. Utd. (Group F) Only unbeaten and untied team.
Arsenal (Group H) Gunners needed only tie at Slavia.

All but through:
Barcelona (Group E) Needs only tie at Lyon in next game.
Inter Milan (Group G) Clinches with win against Fenerbahce at San Siro.
Sevilla (Group H) Won last three games after opening loss at Arsenal.

In good shape:
Porto (Group A) Needs only tie at Liverpool in next game to clinch.
Real Madrid (Group C) Tie at Bremen will help, win will seal berth.
AC Milan (Group D) Could clinch with tie at Benfica in next game.
Roma (Group F) Has three-point lead and tiebreaker on Sporting.
Fenerbahce (Group G) Needs only two points to advance.

Destiny in own hands:
Marseille (Group A) Makes things hard: only one point in last two games.
Chelsea (Group B) Efficient with eights points and only five goals.
Rosenborg (Group B) 2-0 loss at home to Schalke could still hurt.
Rangers (Group E) Could clinch with win at Stuttgart in next game.

All tied up:
Lazio (Group C) Finally got first win in fourth game.
Olympiakos (Group C) Stayed even with Lazio thanks to Real Madrid tie.
Celtic (Group D) Must make up for 2-0 loss at Shakhtar in rematch.
Shakhtar Donetsk (Group D) Two blowout losses to Milan erased edge.

Needs help:
Liverpool (Group A) Probably will need win at Marseille in final game.
Schalke 04 (Group B) Must hope Chelsea wins at Rosenborg.
Valencia (Group B) Hard to overcome back-to-back losses to Rosenborg.
Lyon (Group E) Remained alive with 2-0 and 4-2 wins over Stuttgart.

Longshot:
Besiktas (Group A) Will be hard to recover from 8-0 loss to Liverpool.
Werder Bremen (Group C) Must beat Real Madrid to stay alive.
Benfica (Group D) Realistically will need sweep in final two games.
Sporting Lisbon (Group F) Must win next two games to have any chance.
PSV (Group G) Needs victory at CSKA in next game to have shot.
Slavia Prague (Group H) Must win at Steaua to stay alive.

Eliminated:
VfB Stuttgart (Group E) Pointless in four games, scoreless at home.
Dynamo Kiev (Group F) Has had three coaches since start of group play.
CSKA Moscow (Group G) 2-1 loss at home to Inter was downfall.
Steaua Bucharest (Group H) 2-0 loss to Sevilla worst of four losses.
