A little at stake

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE/TV SCHEDULE] All 16 knockout round qualifiers are set, so Wednesday's games (Group E-H) are only about group winners and UEFA Cup qualifiers, because the third-place finishers move into that competition.

In Group E, Manchester United hosts AaB Aalborg and will finish ahead of Villarreal with a win, or any result as good as what Villarreal gets against Celtic. A Lyon win over Bayern Munich or a scoreless tie will put the French club in Group F first place. Fiorentina grabs a UEFA Cup spot unless it loses to Steaua Bucharest.

In Group G, Arsenal takes first unless it loses to Porto. Fenerbahce will qualify for the UEFA Cup if it beats Dynamo Kiev. In Group H, Juventus will finish ahead of Real Madrid if it beats BATE Borisov. Zenit St Petersburg has already secured a place in the UEFA Cup, which it won last season.
