Group D:  Borussia Dortmund are through, and will clinch top spot by earning a point.  Arsenal will be through with a draw, and stay in contention for first with a win.  BothAnderlecht and Galatasaray need to win out in order to have any chance of advancing.

Group E:  Bayern have clinched first.  Roma are through with a win, and a Manchester City loss.  Manchester City must win, or Roma must draw or lose for them to stay in contention.

Group F:  Paris St. Germain and Barcelona will both advance, it is just a matter of who comes out on top.
