Theoretically, you could finish second even with 15 points. And win the group with just 5 points. But, in reality what are the records? Is it Arsenal (with 13 points) this season and Monaco (with 11 points) this season?

  • Valencia and Barcelona, which you mention as teams to win a group in second group stage with fewest points, actually had 9 points, not 8. – Martin Dec 16 '14 at 7:59
  • I think it's essential to mention that prior to 1995/96 UEFA Champions League season two points were awarded for a win instead of three. So, keeping that in mind, Milan would accumulate 10 points in 1993/94 and 8 points in 1994/95. – gdrt Apr 9 '17 at 20:37
