Champions League Matchday 4 Wednesday Roundup + Highlights

Real Madrid was held to a 3-3 draw by underdogs Legia Warsaw, at some point in the game, the Polish side was set to pull off a remarkable upset before Matteo Kovacic restored Madrid’s lead late in the match.

Real Madrid was two goals up in the early stages of the tie thanks to goals from Gareth Bale and Benzema. Legia’s first goal came in the 35th minute courtesy of Odjidja-Ofoe, two second half goals from Miroslav Radovic and Thibaut Moulin then put the home side in front, but Kovacic’s late strike ensured the spoils were shared in Poland.

Dortmund leapfrogged Real Madrid to claim top spot in Group F after a hard-fought victory over Sporting Lisbon. Aubameyang’s was suspended for the game before kick-off hence significantly reducing der BVB’s threat going forward. The only goal of the match came courtesy of Adrian Ramos’ 12th-minute header.

Group H also offered some decent action with Juventus being held to a 1-1 draw by Lyon in Turin. Gonzalo Higuain converted a penalty to put the home side ahead in the 13th minute, but his goal was cancelled out by Corentin Tolisso towards the end of the game.

Juventus’ draw gave Sevilla the chance to move into top spot as the Spanish outfit secured an emphatic home win over 10-man Dinamo Zagreb with Luciano Vietto, Sergio Escudero, Steven N’Zonzi and Wissam Ben Yedder all being on target.

Elsewhere, Tottenham dropped to third place in Group E as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Leverkusen thanks to a goal from Kevin Kampl. Monaco currently sit atop Group following a 3-0 win over CSKA Moscow in which Radamel Falcao bagged a sublime brace.
