UEFA Champions League, Wednesday Matchday 6: Open Thread

Pictured above, on a cold and cloudy day, is the Emirates Stadium that is literally lighting up the north London sky. The Arsenal grounds crew had the heating lights switched on to make sure the pitch received as much artificial sunlight as possible so the pitch can look in pristine condition while the team is away in Italy to play today’s important match against Napoli.

All Arsenal needs today is a draw or a win to clinch top spot in their UEFA Champions League group. At the same time, Napoli needs a win to clinch advancement to the next round. A draw could be good enough for Napoli if Dortmund lose. Obviously, Napoli will be firing on all cylinders, so Arsenal should expect a difficult game against the Serie A side.

Chelsea have qualified, but need a win against Steaua to guarantee top spot. Barcelona needs a minimum of a draw to win its group. Milan need a draw to qualify for the next round, and to hold Ajax off from reaching the knockout stage.
