Interesting week. Results weren't exactly stellar: 0W-3D-1L. Meh. But all three draws were away, which is kind of impressive, though Benfica blew a 3-0 lead at Besiktas to end up 3-3. That one is ouch. And Sporting again gave up a late goal to end up blowing a possible good result to Real Madrid, 1-2. Alas what could have been. That said, here's the situation going into the final stage of games. Good news is that three of the four teams are in good positions to qualify, and the fourth (Sporting) is well-situated to advance to the Europa League in third place. Specifically: Porto's draw against FCK was neither great nor terrible. They too are a slender two points ahead of the Danes in second place, but they have to host group leaders, already-qualified Leicester City, while FCK goes to Belgium to play group whipping-boys, winless Club Brugge. Porto qualifies with a win, but if they get less than a win, they're out with a FCK win. Both teams draw, then Porto advances. No chance here of being tied on points, which is good for Porto because they have a worse goal differential than FCK. Benfica could have clinched qualification from their group had they not blown their three-goal lead in Turkey, and now instead they sit one narrow point ahead of Besiktas. They play group leader Napoli at home next game, while Besiktas has to go play Dynamo in Kyiv. This group has been strange and random enough that I have no idea who has what edge. I guess the upside is that the worst case scenario for Benfica is that they qualify for the Europa League; with only two points, Kyiv can't catch up with anyone else in the group. Sporting again screws the pooch against Real, though this time they only blew the chance to draw, not to win. That said, though, they still need to not lose in Warsaw to get to the Europa League. By nabbing a surprise point off Real in Warsaw, the Poles would advance with four points if they could beat Sporting. Anything less than that and Sporting is in the EL. Braga is second in their group, but only fractionally ahead of Gent (6 points to Gent's 5). And Gent is away to Konyaspor while Braga gets group leader, undefeated Shakhtar Donetsk, at home. So a win and Braga is through, but anything less than a win for Braga, and a Gent win sends them out. Good news tho is that they have a 5 GD advantage on Gent, so if Gent draws at Konyaspor and Braga loses by as much as 0-4, they will still advance. TL;DR version: best case scenario is two teams in CL, two in EL; worst case is two in EL. Lots to play for, should be an interesting set of games.
