Milan helped themselves by knocking off PSG Tuesday, while the result between Borussia Dortmund and Newcastle United earlier in the day was less than ideal. With two matchdays to go in the Champions League’s group of death, every team is still alive, EuroSport informs.
The Rossoneri are now in control of their own faith, though. They’d advance if they won the next two matches. Instead, they’d need a little help if they failed to do so.
Milan have to win at least one of their next two contests to go through. If they collected four points, PSG would have to upend Borussia Dortmund in the final round for them to grab one of the top two spots.
In the same scenario, they could qualify at the expense of the Ligue 1 champions if Kylian Mbappé and company equalized in their two remaining fixtures.
Instead, if Milan prevailed once and lost in the other contest, they’d make it to the knockout stage if PSG toppled the German side or collected just one point in the last two rounds.
The tiebreakers in case two teams finish with the same points are the goal difference in the head-to-head clashes, goal scored, overall goal difference, and goals on the road.
Our Take on Milan
They waited for the last chance to get it going, but, if they play like Tuesday, something odd would have to happen for them to get eliminated.
