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:

In good shape:

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.

Olympiakos(Group C) Stayed even with Lazio thanks to Real Madrid tie.

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.

Sporting Lisbon (Group F) Must win next two games to have any chance.
