Champions League Wednesday Preview

Liverpool and Chelsea will both secure their places in the knockout stage of the Champions League with victories on Wednesday.

Defending champions Liverpool will progress from Group E with victory over Napoli and likewise the Italians will be through if they win – but both will progress if Salzburg fail to beat Genk.

In Group H, Chelsea will be through if they win at Valencia, but the Spaniards will progress if they get the three points.

RB Leipzig and Lyon will both progress from Group G if they beat Benfica and Zenit respectively.

In Group F, there is a huge game between Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund – the winner of which will progress, although the lose will still have their future in their own hands.

We run through every game including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray, our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and BoyleSports’ Lawrence Lyons.
