The group stages of the Champions League are fast approaching with six spots up for grabs in the play-offs. Four of those have been reserved for champions from lower-tier European leagues whilst lower ranked teams from France, Ukraine, Portugal and the Netherlands are battling for one of the most lucrative prizes in football.

Here's a look at play-off results and takeaways from this week.

Sheriff on the brink of UCL history

Moldova have never had a representative in the Champions League group stage. Their serial title winners Sheriff had not been so close in more than a decade. That might all be about to change after a wonderful win in Tiraspol on Tuesday...

[blah-blah-blah]

Aaronson saves Salzburg at the death

Brenden Aaronson's added-time winner ensured that Red Bull Salzburg's dominance of their first leg at Brondby did not go unrewarded, a 2-1 home win setting them up favorably for the second leg in Denmark next week.

It was a dream start for Brondby in their bid to reach the group stages for the first time since 1998, Mikael Uhre showing impressive strength to hold the ball up in the box before drilling home from close range in the fourth minute. It would take them well over an hour to register another effort on Philipp Kohn's goal.

A summer of change is very much the norm for Salzburg, so admired across Europe for their ability to find gems that will then go on to great things elsewhere. This summer saw Patson Daka and Enoch Mwepu depart for the Premier League whilst American manager Jesse Marsch departed for sister club RB Leipzig. Still there was plenty of talent still left over, not least Karim Adeyemi. The Germany international pounced on the rebound from Aaronson's shot, firing a first time effort through bodies and into the far post.

But for Mads Hermansen, who made nine saves in his first Champions League game of the season, Salzburg might have all but stamped their passage to the group stages. His resistance and that of the defense ahead of him could not quite hold on long enough as a smart through pass by center half Oumar Solet found Aaronson in the box to beat Hermansen with a shot at his near post.

So A or B group of death?

Madrid got a friendly draw after a few years of tough groups. I still think we’ll cough one up to Shakhtar

Def group A or B. 

Madrid was literally with the same group last season sub in Sheriff (whoever that is) for Borussia Monchengladbach.

I'm most interested in watching the Man City (hopefully with Ronaldo) vs PSG with Messi. I'll be rooting for a swarm a locusts.
