Hello and welcome. My name is Darcie Gray, and I will be live reporting the FC Porto Vs Atletico Madrid champions league game. Porto are currently 1st in the league with Atletico Madrid being 4th.
Atletico Madrid will finish in this group’s Europa League place unless Bayer Leverkusen better their result.
If Atletico draw against Porto, Bayer Leverkusen will need to win against Bruges to make it into third. But, if Atletico lose, a draw will be enough to see Leverkusen playing at the European level next year.
Club Brugge will top Group B if they match or better Porto’s result – otherwise Porto finish top. Both have already qualified.
