Champions League: Juventus misses round of 16 – PSG celebrates crazy Torgala

Bitter evening for Juventus Turin: As the loser of the day, the old lady failed with the 3: 4 (1: 3) at Benfica Lisbon in the group stage of the Champions League.

On the other hand, teams number six to nine were the former title holders FC Chelsea (Group E) with its national player Kai Havertz, Paris Saint-Germain after a gala by its star ensemble and Benfica (both H) under the German coach Roger Schmidt together with Bundesliga Vice champion Borussia Dortmund (G) the round of 16.

Cup winners RB Leipzig’s premature jump in Group F was prevented by Shakhtar Donetsk with a 1-1 (0-1) win at Celtic Glasgow. Michailo Mudrik kept the Ukrainians in the running for a place in the round of 16 with his equalizer (58th) after the Scots had taken the lead through Georgios Giakoumakis (34th).

Chelsea won Group E at Austrian champion Red Bull Salzburg 2-1 (1-0). Havertz scored to win 19 minutes after the break. For the former Leverkusen player, the goal was his first goal of the season in Europe’s premier club.

After Mateo Kovacic (23′) gave the English the lead, Chikwubuike Adamu (49′) brought the hosts a temporary equaliser.

Champions League: Milan celebrate clear victory

In the duel between Chelsea’s group opponents, AC Milan put themselves in pole position for the race for the second place in the round of 16 with a 4-0 (1-0) win at Dinamo Zagreb and at the same time helped Chelsea to win the group. Matteo Gabbia (39′), Rafael Leao (50′), Olivier Giroud (59′) and an own goal by the hosts (69′) gave the Rossoneri their clear win.

Dortmund’s rival FC Sevilla struggled in vain for a long time in the game to preserve their chances of the round of 16 for the ultimately worthless victory. After Youssef En-Nesyri (61′) put Dortmund’s rivals in the lead, Isco (88′) and Gonzalo Montiel (90’+2′) eliminated all doubts about success in the closing stages, before the Danes even received a red card against Davit Choscholawa (90+5) were decimated.

Pyro disrupts Paris

An own goal by the guests (67th) and Carlos Soler (84th) set the final chords under a lavish football evening. Haifa’s double goalscorer Abdoulaye Seck (38th and 50th) was only able to shorten twice.

Shortly after kick-off there was a risk of a scandal when the German referee Felix Zwayer (Berlin) interrupted the match for a few minutes because smoke bombs and firecrackers had been set off. After the restart, the game went on without any further disruptions worth mentioning.

In the closing stages, however, goals from Arkadiusz Milik (77′) and ex-Schalke player Weston McKennie (79′) helped Juve to catch up and made Schmidt’s team tremble again.
