Champions League news: What do Arsenal and Chelsea need to reach the last 16? Find out here…

It’s over to you London clubs…

Arsenal and Chelsea both require positive results to reach the last 16 after a mixed night for the Manchester clubs on Tuesday.

Wolfsburg 3-2 Man United

Man City 4-2 Monchengladbach

Allow talkSPORT, therefore, to explain what the Gunners and the Blues require to make the next round:

Olympiakos v Arsenal, Wednesday 9 December, 7:45pm kick off (GROUP F) – live on talkSPORT

Such has been the Gunners’ dismal form in the competition that victory alone may not be enough to see them progress to the knockout stages. 

What they need: Arsenal need to win by two or more goals, or seal a one-goal victory in which they have scored three or more. For example, Arsene Wenger’s side would qualify with a 2-0 scoreline or a 3-2. Any win for Arsenal other than 1-0 or 2-1 will see them through.

Chelsea v FC Porto, Wednesday 9 December, 7:45pm kick off (GROUP G)

Chelsea are still hopeful of finishing top of their group as they welcome Jose Mourinho’s former side to Stamford Bridge, but could yet end up third and in the Europa League.

What they need: Chelsea and FC Porto are level at the top on 10 points, so whoever wins this clash would seal a first-placed finish. A draw would also see Chelsea qualify, in second place, but a defeat for the Blues would leave them praying Dynamo Kiev fail to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv at home, otherwise Mourinho’s men will be bound for the Europa League.
