The leader of the French competition PSG took the lead in Manchester at the beginning of the second half of Mbappé, who scored the 29th goal in the competition during his 50th jubilee start in the Champions League. However, the home team turned the match around thanks to the goals of Sterling and Gabriel Jesus. The reigning English champion thus returned his rival 0: 2 to his rival and secured the promotion from group A from the first place with 12 points.
PSG, which had a returning defender Ramos on the bench after an injury, has four points less, but still advances thanks to Leipzig’s victory in Bruges. The German team received its first win in this year’s competition, Forsberg and Nkunk scored after two goals.
The pair of advancers is also clear in Group H, where Real returned Sheriff Tiraspol to a 1: 2 home defeat in September and succeeded 3: 0 on the Moldovan team’s pitch. He kept the players of the “White Ballet” calm after half an hour of Alaba’s play. At the end of the first part, Kroos increased the lead and after the break, Benzema also prevailed.
Inter Milan, who defeated Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0, also goes on with Real. The Italian champion was able to take the lead for the first time in the 58th minute, when Martínez prevailed, but his goal was not recognized due to a previous foul by Džek. However, the Bosnian striker corrected his offense a moment later, when he ran onto the rebounded ball and opened the match with a shot from the border of the penalty area. The 35-year-old gunner immediately added a second goal after the center of Perišič and scored his 50th jubilee goal in European competitions. He has already recorded 25 of them in the Champions League. The last Shakhtar is finishing in the European Cups.
Ajax Amsterdam continues to hold a 100% balance. Although the Dutch team lost after the first half on the Besiktase Istanbul field, when they won the Ghezzal penalty in the 22nd minute, the guests were helped to the second half by the substitution of gunner Haller. He first equalized in the 54th minute and a quarter of an hour later reversed the development of the match.
The Ivory Coast striker has scored nine goals this year in the Champions League and shares the post of top scorer with Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. Ajax has not lost a point in the competition yet, on the contrary, Besiktas lost the fifth match in this year’s LM.
Second place in the same group C was won by Sporting, who defeated Borussia Dortmund 3: 1 in a direct battle. The Portuguese team had to win by two goals to ensure their progress, as they lost the first duel in Germany 0: 1, and they gained this lead until the break thanks to midfielder Pedro Goncalves. He scored two goals in the Champions League match for the second time in a row, which Cristian Ronald has only managed seven times out of the Portuguese footballers so far.
Goncalves was caught napping as Porro lifted a ball over him following a free kick, but the ball hit the bar, rebounding into the keeper’s arms. Dortmund, who played from the 74th minute without a disqualified Cana, only reduced the lead in the set time thanks to Malen.
The second place in the fight is fought only in group B. In it, so far 100% Liverpool defeated the goals of Alcantara and Salaha 2: 0 Porto, but the Italian AC Milan returned to the fight after winning 1: 0 at Atlética Madrid.
He scored the only goal on the Spanish champion’s field three minutes before the end of Messias. Coach Pioli’s charges, like Atlético’s, have four points and will welcome Liverpool in the last round. Atlético will again be playing on the pitch, which has one more point.
