UEFA Champions League 2014/15 – Group Stage Fixtures, Wednesday 5 November 2014

Another eight UEFA Champions League 2014/15 Group Stage fixtures are scheduled to take place on the evening of Wednesday 5 November 2014, as match week four concludes.

Perhaps the biggest fixture of the evening is in Amsterdam, where, in Group F, Ajax entertain Barcelona, but the closest match of the night is likely to be in Spain, in Group H, where Athletic Club de Bilbao entertain FC Porto.

In Group E, Bayern Munich are looking to maintain their 100% win record when they host AS Roma. After coming from a goal behind to beat Dortmund in the Bundesliga on Saturday evening, Pep Guardiola’s men will likely be full of confidence ahead of a fixture from which a win will see them guaranteed a place in the next round.

Also in Group E, Manchester City welcome CSKA Moscow to their Etihad stadium after letting slip a two goal advantage against the same team away last time out. City will be hoping to carry forward some momentum from Sunday’s Manchester Derby win over fierce old rivals, Man Utd into this must-win home fixture.

Paris Saint Germain entertain APOEL Nicosia of Cyprus in Group F, knowing that a win could see them guaranteed a place in the next round – assuming Barcelona can defeat Ajax.

In Group G, Chelsea travel to NK Maribor, whom they defeated 6-0 last time out, knowing that a win will put them into the next round with two to play. Schalke travel to Sporting with a similar awareness – winning would put them one point from qualification – though, should they lose, Sporting are well within reach. This group is far from over.

Finally, Group H sees Shakhtar Donetsk face BATE, the side they humiliated 7-0 away from home a fortnight ago. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out so soon after that performance.

All matches kick off at 20:45 CET on the evening of Wednesday 5 November 2014.
