Meanwhile, Liverpool need all three points against Napoli whilst Borussia Dortmund head to Monaco
The final group game in this season’s edition of the UEFA Champions League is upon us, and there is a lot to play for as some sides fight for survival. Tottenham need a victory at the Camp Nou, while Liverpool must also take all three points when Napoli visit Anfield and Borussia Dortmund can secure top spot in their group with a win at Monaco.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, Barcelona welcome Tottenham Hotspur to their Camp Nou home knowing the London club need a miracle to make it through to the round of 16. Barça have already topped the group, but with Inter Milan likely to beat PSV then Tottenham must take all three points in Spain to ensure progress in the continental competition.
Barcelona sit top of La Liga and have won their last four matches across all competitions, including netting eight goals in their last two outings. Spurs, by way of comparison, are in third place in the FA Premier League but can come into this game full of confidence after two wins in a row.
Nevertheless, it is Barça who come in as the favourites to take the points here. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.10, while Spurs are out at 3.20 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 4.20, according to Oddsshark.
And while this should be a close game, we are still expecting Barcelona to emerge victorious. A 2-1 victory for the Catalan club is price d at 9.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$45 pay out, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of a home win and both teams to score, which comes in at 3.40.
Liverpool must put Napoli to the sword
Next up, Liverpool host Napoli at Anfield knowing only three points will do. The Reds are in third place in the group and with PSG expected to beat Red Star Belgrade, Liverpool must beat Napoli by a greater margin than the 1-0 score line the Italians managed at the San Paolo.
Liverpool have won their last three league outings in a row and, in front of their own fans, will fancy their chances of beating just about anybody. Napoli, meanwhile, sit second in Serie A and are unbeaten in 12 games across all competitions – they will not give up the chase without a battle.
Nevertheless, it is Liverpool who come into this match as the red hot favourites to get the win they need. You can back the Reds to take the points at just 1.61, with Napoli out at 5.50 to cause an upset – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.50.
And we are expecting Liverpool to get the job done. A 2-0 win for the home side also comes in at 9.00, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.50.
Dortmund could take top spot with win at Monaco
And finally, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to snatch top spot in their group when they travel to Monaco. Current leaders Atletico Madrid are away to Club Brugge, and if they slip up the German table toppers will be ready and waiting to pounce.
Monaco are struggling this season and sit next to bottom in Ligue 1, and have collected just one point in the Champions League this far. Borussia, in stark contrast, are unbeaten in the Bundesliga and are flying.
It is therefore of little surprise to see that it is Borussia who come in as the clear favourites to pick up the win. You can back the visitors to take the points at just 1.66 while Monaco, despite home advantage, are out at 5.00 to do the same – a draw is just lower at 4.50.
And Dortmund should win this one with relative ease. A comfortable, 3-1 win for Borussia is priced competitively at 12.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you could more than triple your money by backing a combo bet of an away win and both teams to score, which comes in at 3.10.
