Group still wide open. Juve obviously have to beat Chelsea at home.
I actually don't think Juve's draw today made a difference from our perspective. We still need to beat Shakhtar at home and draw Juve away, same as if they won. Anything less and we're leaving fate outside our own hands.
Beat Shakhtar and lose to Juve, the two of them can play out a 0-0 draw final game for both to qualify. If we draw both games, Shakhtar will have already won the group before the final game allowing Juve to win in Donetsk and come 2nd.
This is all assuming Nordsjaelland lose their remaining three games, which they probably will. They were hanging by a thread against Juve today.
