They beat Nordsjaelland twice and only picked up 4 other points, they definitely don't deserve to go through (nobody in that group really deserves to) even though they could have.

How's it a joke?

They're already through and have no need to win. Juventus need to draw or better to go through and are playing against a slightly weakened Shakhtar team.

Chelsea don't deserve to go through.

Do they have enough points to go through?

Are they mathematically qualified?

Then they deserve to go through

Because in my opinion no matter the game you should always play for a win, put in full effort, and go for 3 points. Shakhtar are just sitting back and relaxing, playing for nothing.

They earned that right through other results. Why should they play full out when they don't need to?

Gonna have some really good draws this time.
Because what is the point of playing the game if you're just gonna sit back? And frankly, they should have been playing for top of the group for a better draw. But its moot now, its all said and done.

Better for Shakhtar to be in second place, and with this kind of mixture of teams where you finish is really irrelevant.

Gonna have some really good draws this time.

First place: PSG, Schalke, Malaga, Dortmund, Juventus, Bayern, Barcelona, Manchester United

Second place: Porto, Arsenal, Milan, Real Madrid, Shakhtar, Valencia, Celtic, Galatasaray

Teams from same group and same country cannot play each other.

Hopeful draw

PSG vs. Arsenal
Schalke vs. Valencia
Malaga vs. Shakhtar
Dortmund vs. Celtic
Juventus vs. Galatasaray
Bayern vs. Porto
Barcelona vs. Milan
Manchester United vs. Real Madrid

Almost all Dortmund fans want that match-up as well. Those two games would have fantastic atmosphere.

I think the best draw Celtic can get is Man Utd

They've played a few times recently and the games have been close and this Man Utd team can be beaten

I'd bet my house that Man United get an easy draw. No way they draw Madrid.

Still happy with Chelsea. They were never gonna win the CL again, and now they'll keep playing, in a competition, that they do have a good chance of winning.
I also don't know when/why people got the idea that Chelsea would be so much better this year. They're in a transition period, and will be back to glory next year (Lukaku, KDB, better Oscar/Luiz)

This this this. But with him and Scholesy playing a good chunk in this match its highly unlikely that they will start the derby. Which is the only positive you can take from today lol
