The Champions League matchday 6 will see Liverpool entertain Napoli at Anfield with the top spot in Group A up for stake. The evening will also see the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Marseille lock horns as the winner will guarantee a spot in the knockout stage. Atletico Madrid, already out of the Champions League will bid to earn a place in the Europa League.

In Group A, both Napoli and Liverpool - courtesy of their victory at Ajax - are sure to progress, with the two teams to meet at Anfield on the final matchday. Barring a home victory of four goals or more, Napoli will win the group with Liverpool going through in second place.

Napoli are one of only two teams to have won all their Champions League matches so far, with Bayern Munich being the other team. If Liverpool are to win the group, they will have to in by a margin of four goals as a three-goal margin win will not be good enough.

Tottenham will need a result in Marseille on the final matchday of the group stages to be sure of joining Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
