Champions League: Who could go through or exit?

Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Juventus, Manchester City, Barcelona, Zenit and Valencia could go through on matchday four while seven others could fall: UEFA.com explains.

We are only at the halfway point of the UEFA Champions League group stage but after the next set of games on 3 and 4 November, several of the 32 teams could already know their fate.

While holders Barcelona and the sole remaining perfect side Zenit are among those that could seal round of 16 slots following matchday four, Shakhtar Donetsk and Sevilla feature in the list of teams who would be unable to finish above third if results do not go their way. UEFA.com explains.

All information in this article is subject to final confirmation from UEFA. These examples may not cover all potential situations.
