Borussia Dortmund 4-0 Atletico Madrid:

The Dortmund squad came out to play and didn’t hold back not even to the top tier team from La Liga Atletico Madrid. The goals didn’t come early but they showed true dominance when it came to their offence in taking advantage of the opportunities created even though they had less shots on goal and less possession throughout the match. The first goal came in at minute 38’ from axel Witsel, and the rest came at the second half came in late in the match 2 goals at the 73rd and the 89th from Raphael Guerreiro and the 83rd minute from Jadon Sancho. Its clear that Dortmund are in it to win it and if they keep this up they will get real far in the tournament.

A match that had everyone in surprise because the favorite fell short from getting the win yesterday and with a slice of luck and ambition Napoli managed to keep it tied and get one point to keep them in the run.  Its always good to see different things happen in a match to make it stand out and own goals are a huge example to this. The first goal came from Napoli’s Insigne at the 29th minute which is how the first half ended with the Italian team in the lead. In the 61st minute Mario Rui leveled the game 1-1 with an own goal trying to block a shot. This gave Napoli the ambition to fix things and put themselves ahead in the 77th minute with a goal from Dries Mertens. Paris was not going to give up though and would give it their all to not lose this match and at the 93rd minute of compensation the equalizer from the Argentinian Angel Di Maria puts the match 2-2 and a vital tie at that giving Paris St. Germain hopes for the knockout stage of the Champions League!

PSV continues to make an impact and continues to show that they can play with the great teams in Europe. Even though they didn’t get the win the tie still helps the team greatly in the run for the knockout stage. The team had an early start with a goal from THE Mexican player who many consider the future of El Tri and their growth to a top tier level team Hirving “El Chucky” Lozano at the 29th minute. The lead only lasted ten minutes because at the 39th minute Tottenham’s player Lucas Moura Levels the match. After the half time the other two goals came at the 54th minute from Harry Kane and the final goal close to the end of the match at the 87th minute from Luuk de Jong. The matched finished up at a tie and still leaves PSV in the bottom of the group with a difference of goals.
