Juventus attacked, led, demonstrated quality, and Manchester United, as a mortal wounded soldier, looked at the sky and looked for a miracle. And it seemed to him. As of 1999 in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich …
However, the importance of the game in Turin was still far short of the one played by Germans and English at Camp Nou, decided by Teddy Sheringham in the 91st and Ole Gunar Solskjear in 93rd. Bayerne's long-lasting advantage, gained in sixth minute goalkeeper Maria Basler, went down the line, and United became champion of Europe.
Jose Murinjo to that success of Alex Ferguson with "intense devils" has yet to agree on the dice and raises the form of undoubtedly top players. However, in Turin, a huge amount of self-confidence has been injected into the Old Trafford team. Now everyone knows I can.
United defeated Juventus 2: 1 (0: 0), and in 86 minutes, before the "freedman" for Ostrvljane, he lost because Cristiano Ronaldo scored a phenomenal goal for Leonard Bonucci in the 65th minute.
Juan Mata "killed a spider" in the 86th from a break that was awarded at an ideal 17 meters. Four minutes later, another free kick was awarded and the ball was thrown into the quilt, after a clumsy reaction by the "old ladies" defense, Alex Sandro was in the net.
Big three points for Manchester United, who are now second with just two points less than Juventus and two more than Valencia. "The devils" would be able to secure the eighth finals in the next round, if Yang's home away from home, and Juve, also in his field, is better than "bats".
Ajax stepped into the elimination round!
Dusan Tadic pushed him there. The Serbian national was the equalizer goalkeeper for the "coats" in Lisbon in the 61st.
See HERE how this goal looked like.
Benfica led the goal of Jones, but allowed the rival to win a point and escaped on the table as many as four. Bayern is the first since the routine triumph in Munich against AEK.
Roma, and now Real Madrid are quite calm before the last two rounds in group G. Viktoria Plzen started well, created two great chances, and then, by the half, received four goals. Total five at the end! He was defeated by Karim Benzema, whose second goal was particularly nice, as he followed the slalom through the Czech defense.
In the 5-0 victory, the Frenchman scored two goals, and the scorers were Kazemiro, Geret Bale and Toni Kros, who only entered the second part.
It was very exciting in Group F.
In Manchester, where Siti hosted Shakhtar, every uncertainty was missed, because "citizens" entered convincing – 6: 0. However, a hostile host penalty was also seen, after the interference with the land of Rahim Sterling. Viktor Kashai pointed to the "lime", and Gabriel Jessus scored the first of three goals (the other one from the penalties). The scorers were still David Silva, Sterling and Riad Marez.
But in Lyon, until the last minute, it was both exciting, although Hoffenheim played for 51 minutes without Nuhua Kasim, and Olympique managed 2-0 by Nabil Fakir in the 19th and Tangaj Ndombelea, the Germans won a point of hope. Bravely and heartily, through Andrej Kramaric in the 65th and Pavel Kaderabek in the referee's compensation, they managed to equalize and stay in the game for the eighth finals.
Triumph of Rome in Moscow, Valencia better than Young Boys
The victories of Rome and Valencia within the fourth round of the Champions League.
Within the group G, the CSKA team in Moscow received the Roma team, last year's semifinalist of the Champions League, and the guests came out as celebrators.
It was 1: 2, and it could easily have been different, and the coach of Rome Di Francesco was pretty unhappy during the match for that.
The guests came to advantage as early as 4 minutes of the game, then Manolas most jumped after the corner taken by Pelegrini.
Vlasic and Magnuson had a chance to equalize, on the other hand, Florence had a colossal chance to increase to 0: 2, but none of that happened.
In the 50th minute equalization, Sigurdson took advantage of the ball he received in the penalty area, he scored perfectly and struck 1: 1.
A few minutes later, the home team is left less as Magnuson got another yellow card in the 59th minute Pelegrini took advantage of Kristante's shot, hitting and hitting 1: 2. Offside that is not awarded.
CSKA were better rivals after that goal, even though they had lesser players, Di Francesco was angry with his teammates, but he has three points in Rome.
In the group H H. Valencia received Yang Boys and won 3: 1.
The first goal was already in the 14th minute, then Rodrigo had a fantastic break on the right side, and Solera hit the goal, but Mina hit the ball and scored 1: 0.
Aside from the counterattack, Asale slipped from the penalty area and scored a corner of the goalkeeper Valencia for equalization in the 37th minute.
Only a few minutes after that, in Valencia 42, there was a new advantage, the action was again on the right, Soler sent Mino, who again scored 2: 1.
Fantastic today Carlos Soler took part in the third goal of Valencia, this time as a shooter. He walked on the right-hand side like a scissor, he was elusive, shot strongly in the opposite corner and, of course, hit the final 3: 1.
