Golden Ball.

This is the last round of games before the elimination phase. Several groups are still undecided, so we should see some very intense games. The top two advance to the next round, and the third best team enters the UEFA Cup competition.

For example, will Liverpool, Lyon, Marseille, Olimpiacos, PSV, Rangers, and Rosenborg advance to the round of 16? Could they be eliminated entirely, or perhaps compete in the UEFA Cup? There are many potential scenarios that could occur.

Only Manchester United has taken the maximum points (15) from their first 5 games.

All games kickoff at 2045 CET.
