Champions League Matchday 4 Tuesday Roundup + Highlights

In Champions League Matchday 4 Tuesday, A brace from Robert Lewandowski saw Bayern secure qualification into the round of 16 as the Bavarian giants grabbed a crucial win against PSV. With two games left to play, Bayern currently sits second in Group D with Atletico occupying pole position as Simeone’s side are on a four-game winning streak in the UCL.

Antoine Griezmann bagged two goals as Atletico continued their impressive form in the Champions League with a 2-1 win over Rostov. Rostov’s campaign has been quite horrid, to say the least with the Russian outfit yet to secure a victory thus far. Alongside Bayern, Atletico is also through to the next round.

Group A also saw Arsenal and PSG progress into the next round as they both picked up wins against Ludogorets and Basel respectively.

Matuidi opened the scoring for PSG just on the brink of half-time. Thomas Meunier scored PSG’s winner on the occasion after Basel equalised via Luca Zuffi’s 76th-minute strike.

Ludogorets gave Arsenal a massive scare as the Gunners went 2-0 down after the first 15 minutes with Johnathan Cafu and Keseru getting on the scoresheet for the home side.

Arsenal got back in the game thanks to a goal from Granit Xhaka before in-form Olivier Giroud bagged a goal in the 42nd minute. Ozil scored the winner for Arsenal with a noble effort that beat the keeper in the 88th minute.

Benfica moved top of Group B as the Portuguese outfit managed a slender 1-0 win over Dynamo Kyiv. Benfica took the lead via Eduardo Salvio’s spot kick and the scores stayed that way till full time.

Ricardo Quaresema’s 79th-minute penalty gave Besiktas the lead against Napoli before Hamsik bagged a goal in the 82nd minute.

Gladbach was held to a draw by Celtic having opened the scoring thanks to a goal from Lars Stindl. As expected, Moussa Dembele proved to be Celtic’s saving grace as he converted a penalty in the 76th minute.

The pick of games from last night was certainly Manchester City vs Barcelona as Pep Guardiola welcomed his former employers to the Etihad and managed to take revenge having lost 4-0 at the Nou Camp in the reverse fixture.

Messi gave Barcelona the lead in the 21st minute, but a brace from Ilkay Gundogan and a goal from Kevin de Bryune ensured that City were victors on the night.
