Hey users! Welcome to my second football blog of the week, apologies for it being a day late. In today's blog I'll be discussing the Champions League and who I think will reach the knockout stage.

There are some clubs who I think are safely there. Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid have 100% records after three games and are already assured of at least a Europa League place, and holders Bayern Munich also have a 100% record. I think these teams are safely through to the round of 16.

Two groups, Group F and Group H, look extremely hard to escape from. In Group F Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli are all locked on 6 points, with bottom side Marseille surely out of the race for the next round with no points. In this group I think Dortmund will win it with Arsenal coming second and Napoli taking the Europa League place. Dortmund are a strong side and I can see them beating Arsenal and Dortmund at home, but I think Arsenal are safe as they are capable of getting a result in Napoli and I can see nothing but a win for them at home to Marseille.

Group H contains Barcelona, AC Milan, Ajax and Celtic. Celtic a great result on Tuesday, beating Ajax 2 - 1 at home to take them up to third and closer to Milan in second. From this group I think the key game will come when Barcelona host Milan. In the knockout stages last season Barca won this fixture 4 - 0 and I can see them winning again. In my opinion Barcelona will win the group with Milan second and Celtic scraping third and a Europa League place from Ajax.

I will finish by listing who I think will reach the knockout stages:

  • Manchester United (England)
  • Bayer Leverkusen (Germany)
  • Real Madrid CF (Spain)
  • Juventus (Italy)
  • PSG (France)
  • Benfica (Portugal)
  • Bayern Munich (Germany)
  • Manchester City (England)
  • Chelsea (England)
  • FC Schalke 04 (Germany)
  • Borussia Dortmund (Germany)
  • Arsenal (England)
  • Atletico Madrid (Spain)
  • Zenit Saint Petersburg (Russia)
  • FC Barcelona (Spain)
  • AC Milan (Italy)

What are your opinions on who will reach the knockout stages? Please tell me in the comments below! Thanks for reading the blog and I hope you enjoyed it, later today I will hopefully be posting my first FIFA 14 blog.

Dyno out.
