Going into the final gameweek, Real Madrid have already secured passage into the last 16 of the Champions League but their position is not yet confirmed. Of course, the goal will be to win Group F, hopefully securing a slightly easier draw against out of the runners-up from the other groups. To guarantee their spot as group winners, Real Madrid will have to win or at least better RB Leipzig’s result.

Last time out it was Leipzig who prevented Real Madrid from securing top spot, handing Los Blancos their first defeat of the season across all competitions. A 3-2 defeat in Leipzig, Real Madrid went two goals down twice before cutting the deficit in injury time. Carlo Ancelotti’s men were unable to bounce back from the defeat at the weekend, drawing 1-1 with Girona at the Santiago Bernabeu with Cristhian Stuani scoring late on and Toni Kroos getting sent off.

Celtic, meanwhile, continued their unbeaten run across all competitions at the weekend, now five games without defeat. A 3-0 win over Livingston kept Celtic top of the Scottish Premiership table as they look to retain their crown, but things haven’t gone to plan in the Champions League.

Last week Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk brought their second point of the Champions League this season, having also held the Ukrainian side in the first fixture, but they are already out of Europe. Four points behind Shakhtar going into the final game, Celtic are guaranteed to finish bottom of Group F so won’t even have the glory of challenging for the Europa League after Christmas. It has been a tough group for Celtic too, with just three goals scored and 10 conceded across the five games so far.
