BVB loses 3-1 to Sporting and is prematurely eliminated from the Champions League. Manchester City turned the game against PSG.
“This is a Haaland one-man show and without Haaland it is not a show at all.” That is what blue expert Marcel Reif said at half-time. The 71-year-old was angry. And how! The reason? The performance of the Dortmunders, who competed in the Champions League against Sporting Lisbon. At the break it was 2-0 for the Portuguese. A buck from Schulz initiated the 1-0 win for Gonçalves, who was able to tie the brace before the break.
Bitter for the Germans! Because with this result, the Champions League party for Dortmund would already be over. And she stayed that way. Also because BVB completely lost their nerve in the second half. Can, who came on during the break, kicked after a duel and saw the red card straight away. And in the 81st minute, Zagadou fouled a Sporting man. Penalty! Kobel was able to save Gonçalves' shot at first, but Porro Sauceda's margin was in.
The hit from Malen was of no use anymore. Sporting won 3-1 and grabbed the ticket for the round of 16 behind group winners Ajax. Kobel and Akanji, on the other hand, fly out of the premier class after a more than poor team performance! After all: Nati star Akanji was praised by Twitter users. One said during the game: “Apart from Akanji, nobody is at the Champions League level.” The team is heavily criticized. “It has no place in the Champions League”.
Manchester City have been confirmed as the winners of Group A in the Champions League. The English football champions turned the game around after falling behind against their direct pursuer Paris Saint-Germain and won 2-1 (0-0) on Wednesday evening. With twelve points, the team of coach Pep Guardiola can no longer be ousted from first place with one remaining matchday.
After Kylian Mbappé's opening goal (50th) it looked as if the French capital club could shake off the unrest surrounding coach Mauricio Pochettino's transfer rumors. But Raheem Sterling (63rd) and Gabriel Jesus (76th) led the Cityzens to victory. The Parisians can no longer be displaced from second place, however, as Leipzig achieved a 5-0 (4-0) win at FC Bruges.
Thiago Alcantara leveled the 1-0 (52nd) Way to the fifth victory in the fifth game of Liverpool FC, which prevailed 2-0 (0-0) against FC Porto. Mohamed Salah (70th) put the finishing touches.
In the parallel game, AC Milan won 1-0 (0-0) at Atlético Madrid, these two clubs and Porto still have hope of surviving the group stage.
In group D, the first two places are definitely already taken. Real Madrid retaliated with a 3-0 (2-0) win at FC Sheriff Tiraspol for the surprising 1-2 in the first leg. Former Munich-based David Alaba (30th), ex-international Toni Kroos (45th +1) and Karim Benzema (55th) met. The French international was sentenced to one year probation and a fine on match day for attempted extortion with a sex video. Before that, Inter Milan had won 2-0 (0-0) against Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to a brace from Edin Dzeko and secured second place.
With the last contingent, RB Leipzig, plagued by the corona chaos, dismantled the small FC Bruges and preserved the chance of wintering in Europe. The German runner-up, supervised by co-trainer Achim Beierlorzer, prevailed 5-0 (4-0) against the completely overwhelmed Belgian champions on Wednesday evening and thus won the direct duel for third place in Group A. If Leipzig and Bruges are tied with four points after the last matchday in two weeks, RB can continue playing in the Europa League.
BVB is out!
