Arsenal and Man United poised to book places in last 16

Madrid, Nov 7: Arsenal need only to draw against Slavia Prague, the side they demolished 7-0 on their last Champions League outing, if they are to secure their place in the last 16 today with two games to spare.

Sevilla will be strong favourites to take the other berth in Group H if they can win away at Steaua Bucharest who have not tasted victory in any of their last eight Champions League games.

Like Premier League rivals Arsenal, with whom they drew 2-2 at the weekend, Manchester United will also cruise into the knockout stage if they beat Dynamo Kiev in their Group F match at Old Trafford.

Barcelona and Rangers battle it out for the leadership of Group E at the Nou Camp, but the winners would only go through if bottom side VfB Stuttgart win at Olympique Lyon.

Rangers won the Cup Winners' Cup against Dynamo Moscow at the Barcelona stadium in 1972 but have never beaten Spanish opposition in the Champions League.

Inter Milan will take a step closer to the last 16 in the closely contested Group G if they can see off a CSKA Moscow side who have not won their last six Champions League games.
