Last Champions league games in 2016

Tonight we will know last teams that will go into the last 16 in the Champions and 32 for the Europa league. Like yesterday, one group will be interesting to watch as two teams are battling for that second magical place. Also there will be two clashes for the Europa league spot - both of them direct.

- Club Brugge - FC Copenhagen. Imperative match for FC Copenhagen. The Danish side is in search of a win in Belgium, where Club Brugge have a awful record in the group this season. Apart from that, Belgium champions have a very good form at home, so the team will be a big challenge for the visitors who are chasing that second place. However, since both are very good, a draw is much more likely to happen.
- Legia - Sporting. Suddenly Legia is in position to fight for the Europa league. In order to accomplish that Polish champions need win over Sporting, who also are troubling with the form. The visitors who are in a better position from their rivals, are slight favorites to steal all three points. It will be hard - but doable.
- Lyon - Sevilla. Lyon is having oscillations in their play, but the team is not quite confident for a win. Sevilla on the other hand is doing the same, so it will be a real mystery of who is going to win the game. As both clubs are not into their high expectations another share of points may happen.
- Porto - Leicester. Top two clash in table G. Porto should take advantage of Leicester's dreadful away form. The English club has not receive any goal as guests, which means they have strong defence, but Porto's determination of win is very likely. And the reason for that is FC Copenhagen's match in Belgium.
- Real Madrid - Borussia Dortmund. From the mixed results that Borussia Dortmund is making that can trigger Real Madrid to re-take the top spot. However, Spaniards are not into top form either, so this can go either way. Germans have never won in Madrid (against this same rival), tough game is expected and a win for the hosts.
- Tottenham - CSKA Moscow. Winless Tottenham takes on winless CSKA Moscow (as guests) on a direct encounter for the third place. As the hosts have the advantage of one point than their rival, Russian champions have to find strength to go for a win. Attacking for three points will be difficult tonight knowing that the club is on a very low form at the moment. This is a very big opportunity for the hosts, so the win will not be questioned.
