With yet another spectacular goal of Robert Lewandowski, Bayern finally secured first place in Group E of the Champions League on Tuesday by winning 2-1 under the snow in Kiev. In the other meeting at 6:45 p.m., Cristiano Ronaldo again engaged the savior mode to show the way for Manchester United against Villarreal and qualify the team for the rest of the competition. Scorer in the 78th minute he gave the Mancunians a breath of fresh air before Jadon Sancho do not double the stake at the very end of the game, won 0-2.
In the 21h meeting in the group of Manchester and Villarreal, Atalanta and Young Boys shared the stake after a match rich in goals: 3-3. Atalanta (6 points) can still grab second qualifying place for the rest of the competition, the scenario is still possible but much less likely for the Young Boys (4 points).
Lewandowski Ballon d’Or fashion
The Pole, author of a victorious acrobatic return (1-0, 14th), consolidates his position as the competition’s top scorer with nine goals in five games. Kingsley Coman doubled the bet (2-0, 42nd).
In the second period, facing a completely experimental Bavarian defense with three-quarters of France (Davies, Pavard, Nianzou Kouassi, Sarr) Denys Garmash scored Dynamo Kiev’s first goal this season in the Champions League (2-1, 70th).
Robert Lewandowski, in the race for the Ballon d’Or to be awarded on Monday, has scored in each of his last nine Champions League matches.
This season, he has already scored 30 times in 25 matches in all competitions with Bayern (25 goals / 19 matches) and the Polish side (5 goals / 6 matches).
A first without Solskjaer, Ronaldo to the rescue
The Mancuniens relied, as often this season, to Cristiano Ronaldo (78th) in the last quarter of an hour to get rid of the team of Unai Emery, who had until then dominated the debates.
Released, the Red Devils then ensured their success on a cons concluded by the first goal in the competition of Jadon Sancho (90th), and are sure to stay ahead of Group F (10 points) at the end of this day. A victory for the morale after a complicated week and the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
