Rubin Kazan will play at PAOK in order to determine who will end up in first place for this group. Rubin Kazan will have to win in order to clinch the top spot. However, Kazan can tie in order to qualify for the Round of 32. PAOK is already guaranteed second place with a loss, but they can be first if they win or tie at home. Tottenham needs plenty of things to go their way in order to finish in second. Rubin Kazan would have to lose, and Hotspur would have to win by at least five goals against Shamrock Rovers.
