There we have it, the group stage of the 19/20 Champions League is done and dusted. With the draw for the round of 16 taking place on Monday, get up to date with the gameweek 6 results and the final group standings with our round-up.

Group A

Group A was done and dusted going into the final game as both PSG and Real Madrid were guaranteed places in the next round, with the only thing left to be decided being the team to finish third and go to the Europa League. Galatasaray needed to beat PSG to have any chance of finishing third, but a 5-0 defeat in Paris meant that they would finish fourth regardless of Club Brugge’s result against Real Madrid. So despite their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid, Club Brugge finished third and will be competing in the next round of the Europa League.

  1. PSG - 16
  2. Real Madrid - 11
  3. Club Brugge - 3
  4. Galatasaray - 2

Group B

Group B was also essentially over going into gameweek 6, and both Bayern Munich and Tottenham were both guaranteed places in the round of 16. Bayern won the fixture 3-1 and finished with 5 wins out of 5, their first time of doing so, with Tottenham finishing second. Olympiacos’ 1-0 win over Crvena Zvezda in Athens means that the Greek side finished third and will be moved on to the Europa League, with Crvena Zvezda finishing bottom.

  1. Bayern Munich - 18
  2. Tottenham - 10
  3. Olympiacos - 4
  4. Crvena Zvezda - 3

Group C

Manchester City went into their game against Dinamo Zagreb knowing that they were the guaranteed winners of group C regardless of the result in Croatia, but got a result anyway as they recorded a 4-1 victory. City’s victory meant that the winner between Shakhtar Donetsk and Atalanta would also qualify for the next round, and it was the Italians as Atalanta beat Shakhtar Donetsk 3-0 in Ukraine to qualify for the round of 16 for the first time in their history.

  1. Manchester City - 14
  2. Atalanta - 7
  3. Shakhtar Donetsk - 6
  4. Dinamo Zagreb - 5

Group D

Juventus’ victory over Atletico Madrid during gameweek 5 meant that they were guaranteed top spot of group D going into their game against Bayer Leverkusen, Atletico on the other hand weren’t guaranteed a place in the round of 16, but as long as they beat Lokomotiv Moscow or Bayer Leverkusen didn’t beat Juventus, they would be through. Atletico ended up beating Lokomotiv Moscow 2-0 in Madrid to guarantee their place in the next round. As a result of Atletico Madrid’s victory and their 2-0 defeat to Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen finished third in group D and will be moved down to the Europa League.

  1. Juventus - 16
  2. Atletico Madrid - 10
  3. Bayer Leverkusen - 6
  4. Lokomotiv Moscow - 3

Group E

Liverpool just needed a point against RB Salzburg to guarantee qualification to the next round, so their 2-0 victory in Austria guaranteed them top spot of group E regardless of Napoli’s result against Genk. As a result of RB Salzburg’s defeat to Liverpool, Napoli were also guaranteed a place in the round of 16 regardless of their result, but didn’t take any chances as they beat Genk 4-0 in Italy. RB Salzburg will move down to the Europa League and if they can keep their players from leaving in January, they will be one of the most feared teams in the Europa League.

  1. Liverpool - 13
  2. Napoli - 12
  3. RB Salzburg - 7
  4. Genk - 1

Group F

Barcelona had nothing to play for ahead of their game against Inter at the San Siro, with Inter needing a win considering that Borussia Dortmund were playing Slavia Praha in Dortmund. Dortmund’s 2-1 victory over Slavia Praha meant that Inter needed to beat Barcelona if they wanted to qualify, which didn’t turn out to be the case as they lost 2-1 to Barcelona, meaning that Dortmund finished second and Inter finished third.

  1. Barcelona - 14
  2. Borussia Dortmund - 10
  3. Inter - 7
  4. Slavia Praha - 2

Group G

RB Leipzig were another team who was guaranteed a place in the round of 16 regardless of their gameweek 6 match, so their 2-2 draw to Lyon had no importance for them. However, as a result of Benfica ‘s 3-0 victory over Zenit in Lisbon, Lyon’s point against RB Leipzig means that they will also be in the round of 16, with Benfica finishing third and moving to the Europa League.

  1. RB Leipzig - 11
  2. Lyon - 8
  3. Benfica - 7
  4. Zenit - 7

Group H

All Chelsea needed to qualify for the round of 16 was a victory at home to Lille in their final group stage game, as at least one of Ajax or Valencia would drop points in the other game, with a point being enough as long as Ajax beat Valencia in Amsterdam. Chelsea got the job done by beating Lille 2-1 at Stamford Bridge to seal their place in the next round. The shock of the round came as Valencia beat Ajax 1-0 in Amsterdam meaning that the Spanish side would join Chelsea in the round of 16 with Ajax finishing third and dropping down to the Europa League.

  1. Valencia - 11
  2. Chelsea - 11
  3. Ajax - 10
  4. Lille - 1
