Thanks to a rush from Burak Yilmaz in a very clumsy Austrian defense, Jonathan David (31st) turned into a fox from the surfaces to score the only goal in Losc’s 1-0 victory against Red Bull Salzburg. It is a capital result for the northerner club, which brings down the leader of group G while seizing this first place. With a point in the last game in Wolfsburg, Lille will be qualified.
There weren’t any goals, but there were plenty of clear chances. At Camp Nou for Xavi’s Champions League debut in his coach costume, FC Barcelona could not get rid of SL Benfica (0-0) and therefore wipe out the heavy loss made 3-0 suffered in the first leg. The Catalans thought they made the difference in the 84th minute, thanks to Ronald Araujo. But there was an offside. And long before that, a superb curled shot from Yusuf Demir crashed into the Portuguese crossbar. But regrets can also be Lisbon: for a ball released on the trajectory of the corner, the referee refused a goal to Nicolas Otamendi in the first period. Then at the very end of the match, during a stoppage of play, Haris Seferovic was unable to frame the ball in an empty cage.
In the end, BarÃ§a remains 2nd in Group E with two points ahead of Benfica. But with a serious problem: his last game is scheduled at the Allianz Arena against Bayern.
Trevoh Chalobah (25th), Reece James (56th), Callum Hudson-Odoi (58th) and Timo Werner (90th 5) were the scorers in Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Juventus at Stamford Bridge. The Blues extinguished the Turinese, who were never really able to deceive Douard Mendy. Thomas Tuchel’s men therefore took their revenge on the first leg, which they had narrowly lost 1-0. This result allows them to turn the situation around for the particular goal difference and regain first place in Group H. Ã ?? Note also that N’Golo KantÃ © left with an injury, but perhaps more out of precaution than because of a major problem.
Manchester United advanced to the round of 16, winning 2-0 over Villarreal. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 140th goal in C1, opening the scoring with a nice lob on Geronimo Rulli (78th). The team of interim Michael Carrick, who took over from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, secured his success at the very end of the match with a counter concluded by Jadon Sancho (90th). The Red Devils finish this day in first place in Group F.
With five French players (Pavard, Kouassi, Hernandez, Tolisso, Coman), Bayern Munich, already qualified, won 2-1 on the snowy lawn of Dynamo Kiev. Before the very collective second Bavarian goal scored by Kingsley Coman (42nd) and the reduction in the gap signed Denys Garmash (70th), it was Robert Lewandowski who shone. In the race for the Golden Ball which will be awarded on Monday, the Polish striker caused a sensation with a splendid return to the Ukrainian area (14th). He has thus scored in each of his last nine Champions League games. This season he is already at 30 goals in 25 games in all competitions with Bayern and the national team.
Malmö, who remained on four losses in as many games, as well as twelve goals conceded, believed to collect his first success in group H. But because of a penalty transformed by Yaroslav Rakitsky in additional time (90th 2), the Swedish club conceded a 1-1 draw against a Zénith Saint-Petersburg reduced to ten (and who had missed a first penalty at the 52nd minute). The goal of the experienced Danish midfielder Soren Rieks (28th) will therefore have been useless: MalmÃ¶ will be 4th at the end of this group stage, the Zénith will go to the Europa League.
Six goals were scored in Bern, in the draw between Young Boys and Atalanta (3-3). Duvan Zapata opened the scoring for the Italians in the 10th minute, but former Rennes striker Jordan Siebatcheu (39th) equalized for the first time. In the second half, Bergamo came back in front thanks to JosÃ © Luis Palomino (51st). It was then that in the space of four minutes at the end of the match, Vincent Sierro (80th) and Silvan Hefti (84th) turned the tide. But Luis Muriel (88th) found the resources to snatch the draw for the Dea, which retained third place ahead of the Swiss and offered a final for second place against Villarreal.
In the Losc group, SÃ © ville FC finally obtained their first success, at home against Wolfsburg. Joan Jordan (13th) put the Andalusians on the right track and Rafa Mir drove the point home in the very last seconds (90th 7). Thus, the Villans move up to 3rd place in the pool and still have all their chances of qualifying.
