The Champions League Group Stage is now over, presenting teams with the opportunity to put European action to one side for a few months and focus on duties in their respective leagues.

This past Wednesday, the final fixtures were played in Matchday Six, with some huge names failing to reach the knockout stage.

Manchester United have had to settle for a place in the Europa League after they failed to defeat RB Leipzig in a 3-2 loss in Germany, while Inter finished bottom of a Champions League group for the first time in their history, being eliminated from Europe altogether.
