In Group J of the Europa League Group Stage, first place is already locked up, while the other three teams have a shot at second place and at being in the Round of 32. Without further ado, let's take a look at the standings.
1. Schalke 04 -- 11 points.
2. Maccabi Haifa -- 6 points.
3. Steaua Bucuresti -- 5 points.
4. AEK Larnaca -- 5 points.
Schalke is already guaranteed first place with a five-point cushion. Both of these matches in this group are important as Schalke will be at Haifa and Larnaca will be at Bucuresti. Haifa will clinch second if they defeat Schalke or if they tie or lose and the other match ends up in a tie. For Bucuresti and Larnaca, they have to win and hope for Haifa to lose.
Predictions: Haifa has not lost at home during this group stage. They shouldn't lose to Schalke's second string. Looking at this match from a German-Jewish WWII perspective, I must root for Haifa to win. I will pick AEK Larnaca to win as well.
