With his victory in a direct duel against Porto Atlético, Madrid secured a ticket for the second round in the first division. The BVB celebrated a runaway victory, Real Madrid put Inter in their place and Liverpool the heart of the match in Milan. All matches and goals of the Champions League evening.
In Groups A to D, there is only one place left in the last 16 matches of the Champions League on the last day of the match. Atlético Madrid clinched a 3-1 victory over FC Porto.
Antoine Griezmann scored this decisive goal in the group in the 56th minute after a corner kick. A little later, a player of both teams saw the red card for gross fouls. The remaining three goals were all from the 90th minute. The Spaniards managed to avoid falling into the group stage for the first time in four years.
Milan were eliminated from competitions to finish last in the group after a 2-1 defeat at home to Liverpool. In the past, Milanese could not have finished second because their performances were worse in the confrontations with Atlético. However, in both cases, they didn’t know how to exploit the conditions for them, with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp giving most of the permanent staff a break, largely by not allowing them to travel at all.
Of the squad, which recently started in the Premier League, Klopp only put goalkeeper Alisson and tested goalkeeper Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in the starting lineup. Milan took the lead, and Salah and Divock Origi turned the game around.
Liverpool got the most points from group matches – just as in Group C Ajax Amsterdam, who beat Sporting Lisbon 4-2 at home. For Dortmund, their spoiled Champions League adventure ended in success with a 5-0 home win against Istanbul’s Besiktas. The BVB has yet to go to the European League.
In Group D, Real Madrid won the group by 2-0 at home to Inter Milan. Toni Kroos and Marco Asensio scored well for Los Blancos.
Leipzig in the European League
In the first group, it was only a matter of place in the knockout stage of the European League. And Leipzig won this 2-1 at home against Manchester City, the group champion.
Leipzig could have advanced even with the defeat, because they could have been pushed to fourth place only if Brugge had not lost at PSG. But the Belgians were far from that in their 4-1 defeat. Kylian Mbappe opened the match with two goals in the first seven minutes, and Lionel Messi later scored the 124th and 125th goals in the Premier League.
