Bayern Munich-AEK Athens (Group E): 2-0
A breath of fresh air for Bayern Munich, who had not won at the Allianz Arena from four games. Faced with the Greeks of AEK, the Bavarians did the work. In a penalty shot, Robert Lewandowski scored for the first time (31st). Polo put it back in the second half without any difficulty. AEK – four games, four defeats – is eliminated from the race in the eighth. The third position seems very great.
Benfica-Ajax Amsterdam (Group E): 1-1
Ajax still has his destiny in his hands. In this new "final" for second place, Amsterdam went to take a precious spot at Estadio da Luz against Benfica. Jonas had opened the score for Lisbon in an action where goalkeeper André Onana was not brilliant (29th). But Dusan Tadic equalized in the second half (61st). Ajax is four points ahead of Benfica. And Bayern's first position is only two longs.
Lyon-Hoffenheim (group F): 2-2
Disappointment for Olympique Lyonnais. Thanks to Nabil Fekir (19th) and Tanguy Ndombele (28th), the Gones had taken the lead in this confrontation against the Germans. And when Hoffenheim dropped to ten, few people are betting on a return of visitors. And yet … Andrej Kramaric, with an accurate shot, again gave his 65th hope. And Pavel Kadebarek punished the loose Lyon (90 + 2e). Lyon is second, but only three points in front of Hoffenheim.
Manchester City-Shakhtar Donetsk (Group F): 6-0
Municipalities did not make any detail. Ukrainians from Donetsk took the water at the Eid Stadium. David Silva (13th), Gabriel Jesus (24th in penalty, 72th in penalty shoot-out and 90th + 2h), Rachel Sterling (49th) and Riyad Mairz (84th) organized the Manchester City Fireworks against Shakhtar Donetsk. The city is almost niche for the eighth.
Viktoria Plzen-Real Madrid (group G): 0-5
First on the success of Santiago Solari in the Champions League. Real Madrid is reassured by walking in the Czech Republic. Karim Benzema scored the 200th and 20th goals with Merengues (21st, 37th) while Casemiro (23rd), Gareth Bale (40th) and Toni Kroos (67th) did the rest of the work. Real is the second with the same number of points as the Roma. Plzen, with only one point, can no longer hope for a third qualifying point for the Europa League.
CSKA Moscow-AS Roma (group Z): 1-2
AS Roma made a big step in the 16th round, winning at the CSKA Moscow stadium. Konstantinos Manolaas opened the header entry score (4th). Arnor Sigurdsson replied to the second half (50th). But Muscovites quickly gave Lorenzo Pellegrini again (59th). It has not been folded yet, but the Russians will have trouble seeing the eighth. The third position seems much more realistic.
Juventus-Manchester United (Group H): 1-2
A big hit by the Mancunians, who overturned Turini at the end of the match. Cristiano Ronaldo put Bianconeri on the right track by scoring his first goal at C1 with his new colors with a masterful volleyball (65th). Juan Mata with a wonderful free kick (86th) and Alex Sanktroff (90th) gave the victory to the Red Devils. United is the second and returns to two points from Juve.
Valencia-young boys (group H): 3-1
It's almost over the hopes of the Young Boys. The Swiss admitted a third defeat in four matches in Valencia. His double Santi Mina (14th, 42nd) put Murcielagos in orbit. Roger Assalé meanwhile reduced the gap (37th), but Spain's dominance was back again with a duel won by Carlos Soler (56th). Valencia retains her chances to play the eighth.
