They can still get some points in the CL and hopefully finish third to get to the EL.
They're gonna finish 4th with 3 or 4 points maybe
Long time since I've seen a Premier League team tonked around like that. I doubt we're going to see four english teams in the round of 16 even though Spurs are in a relatively weak group (Bayern apart).
What English team do you see failing to make it to the R16? I still can't see any of them not making it through. As for the Italian teams, there will only be Juventus and Napoli
Given the seeming turmoil at Spurs, i can see them missing out. As I said, it's a weak group, but Spurs are in a bad place right now.
They already tied Olympiacos away from home, sure they lost to Bayern but doesn't really matter, as long as they get 7pts from the 3 remaining games between Red Star and Olympiacos they're through
Chelsea. They lost to Valencia at home. Ajax is the best team in their group.
Possibly but with Dinamo Zagreb beating them 4-0 at home, that is already a huge goal difference to overcome there even for Europa League.
Inter Milan will beat Dortmund. Mark my words.
For England: Man City, Liverpool, and Tottenham will be through to Round of 16. Chelsea to Europa League.
For Italy: Juventus, Napoli, and Inter will make Round of 16. Atalanta will finish 4th and won't even make Europa League
For Germany: Bayern Munich, and RB Leipzig will make Round of 16. Dortmund and Leverkusen will go to Europa League.
Napoli? Don’t count your chickens....
Napoli will make it. Liverpool is the only real tough team in the group, and they already beat them once. While Liverpool will likely be group winners, Napoli will advance.
You might be underestimating Salzburg by a lot. They are really good.
Salzburg is very good, if we draw in Austria I think we'll pass though.
I know but I think Napoli will beat Salzburg in Italy though. Likely draw in Austria or even if they lose, I still think Napoli will have the better record.
The way I see it, Liverpool has 20 matches in the final 11 weeks of 2019. Plus they are really focusing on EPL this season. Its gonna be a full B team that they put out against Salzburg, assuming Liverpool win their next 3 CL games. They don't have the luxury to be fair to everyone and put out their A team for sporting reasons if they've already mathematically clinched a place in the KO stage.
So IMO it will come down to the 2 head-to-head matches, and maybe down to away goals.
While RB might be underdogs, they have a decent shot. Same boat as Inter, really.
If you believe Salzburg are favourites to qualify because of the last fixture then I don't know how to reply to you that is just so wrong.
On the other hand I do think that Salzburg shouldn't be taken lightly at all. They proved by coming down from 0-3 at Anfield that they're dangerous as hell.
Salzburg's two games have had 15 combined goals. Last season 9 of the clubs had fewer than 15 combined goals in their six Group Stage games. Salzburg is already over halfway to the most combined Group Stage goals last season, which was 26 by PSG. Salzburg's 9 goals are more than all of Group A, which has 8 goals and includes PSG and Real, and Group F, which has 7 goals and includes Barcelona.
