Bayern Munich-AEK Athens (Group E): 2-0
Peaceful air for Bayern Munich, who had not won the Allianz Army after four games. Directly to the AEK Greeks, the Bavarian people did the job. Robert Lewandowski made a first knockout (31st). Pole put it back to the other half without any difficulty. AEK Athens – four games, four losses – will be eliminated from the competition eighth. The third place seems very far away.
Benfica-Ajax Amsterdam (Group E): 1-1
Ajax still has a fate in his hands. In this new "last" second place, the Amsterdammers went to the prestigious Estadio da Luz against Benfica. Jonas had opened the Lisbon score when goalkeeper André Onana was not great (29). But Dusan Tadic scored in the second half (61th). Ajax has four points ahead of Benfica. And Bayern's first place is just two lengths.
Lyon-Hoffenheim (Group F): 2-2
Dissatisfaction with Olympique Lyonnais. Thanks to Nabil Fekir (19th) and Tanguy Ndombele (28.), Gones was in charge of this confrontation with the Germans. And when Hoffenheim was reduced to ten, few people called for the return of visitors. And yet … Andrej Kramaric, with a precise shot, again brought his wish (65th). And Pavel Kadebarek was penalized by lax Lyon (90 + 2e). Lyon is another, but only three points before Hoffenheim.
Manchester City-Shakhtar Donetsk (Group F): 6-0
Cityzens did not make any details. Donetsk Ukrainians took water at the Etihad stadium. David Silva (13th), Gabriel Jesus (24th Penalty, 72nd Penalty and 90 + 2nd), Raheem Sterling (49th) and Riyad Mahrez (84th) held Manchester City's fireworks against Shakhtar Donetsk. The city is practically qualified for eighth.
Viktoria Plzen-Real Madrid (Group G): 0-5
First, successfully in the Santiago Solari Champions League. Real Madrid has calmed itself by wandering around in the Czech Republic. Karim Benzema reached his 200th and 201st goals in Merengues (21st and 37th), while Casemiro (23rd), Gareth Bale (40th) and Toni Kroos (67th) made the rest of the job. Real is the second with the same number of points as the Romans. Plzen, with only one point, can no longer hope for the Third Place in the Europa League.
CSKA Moscow-AS Roma (Group G): 1-2
AS Roma made a big step towards a 16-round win by winning the CSKA Moscow pitch. Konstantinos Manolas opened the title score (fourth). Arnor Sigurdsson answered him in the second half (50th). But the muscles quickly restored Lorenzo Pellegrini (59). It is not folded yet, but the Russians have to see the eighth. The third place looks much more realistic.
Juventus-Manchester United (Group H): 1-2
A great blow to Mancunia, who overturned Turinese's end of the match. Cristiano Ronaldo had put the Bianconeri on the right track by scoring his first goal in C1 in his new colors, a masterful volley (65th). But Juan Mata's superb free kick (86) and Alex Sandro on his side (90th) gave victory to Red Devils. United is the second and returns to Juve's two points.
Valencia-Young Boys (Group H): 3-1
It's almost over the wishes of young boys. Switzerland has won the third win in four matches in Valencia. Santi Mina's double (14th, 42nd) put Murcielagos orbit. Roger Assalé reduced the gap (37th), but the overwhelming success of the Spanish team was again achieved by winning Carlos Soler (56th). Valencia maintains its chance to play eighth.
