Successful exit for Fat to replace

London's Chelsea advance to the Champions League playoffs thanks to a 2-1 win over Rennes in the 91st minute.

Frank Lampard's wards actively started the match and opened the scoring in the middle of the first half.

Callum Hudson-Odoi scored a heads-up after Mason Mount's excellent pass from his half.

At the start of the second half, Timo Werner managed to double Chelsea's lead, but the German's goal was canceled due to an offside position.

After that, the initiative passed to Rennes.

The advantage of the hosts became more and more significant, but for the time being they could not break through their recent teammate Edouard Mendy.

It was possible to level the score only in the 85th minute.

Seru Girassi, taking advantage of a perfect serve from a corner, sent the ball under the crossbar without resistance.

The decisive goal was scored by substitute Olivier Giroud.

The Frenchman finished off the ball into the net after another save by Alfred Gomis.

Holland at the top of the scorer race

Borussia Dortmund is also close to reaching the playoffs.

The German team again sent three unanswered goals to the goal of Brugge.

The double was the top scorer of the yellow-blacks Erling Holland.

The Norwegian opened the scoring in the 18th minute, and after an hour of the meeting he again upset the opponent.

Ronaldo's 15th consecutive Champions League goal

In Group G, Barcelona achieved the fourth victory in a row.

The Catalans on the road left no chances for Dynamo Kiev (4: 0), which lost several players due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

However, the blue garnet arrived in Ukraine is not in the optimal composition.

Gerard Pique, Samuel Umtiti, Sergio Busquets, Ansu Fati and Lionel Messi did not go to Kiev for various reasons, while Antoine Griezmann and Jordi Alba remained in reserve.

But from the first minutes a number of young players entered the field: Sergino Dest, Carles Aleña, Francisco Trincan, Pedri and Oscar Garcia.

The latter made his debut for Barça and ended up with an assist.

In the first half, the experimental composition of the guests did not look the best - Ronald Koeman's charges practically did not threaten the goal of others.

But after the break, the favorite removed all questions about the winner of the meeting.

Dest first scored his debut goal for Barça.

The American, at the age of 20 and 21 days, became the youngest defender to score for the BLU in the Champions League.

Then Martin Braithwaite came to the fore.

In the 57th minute, he hit the opponent's goal after a corner kick, and a little later he earned and converted a penalty.

The substitute Griezmann put an end to the match.

Unlike Barcelona, ​​Juventus experienced a lot of problems in their match.

Turintsy at home only in the added time by the referee snatched the victory from Ferencvaros (2: 1) and together with the Catalans advanced to the playoffs ahead of schedule.

The guests managed to open the score in the middle of the first half.

Albanian striker Myurto Uzuni closed his partner's cross from the right flank.

It is curious that the footballer celebrated the goal in the corporate style of Cristiano Ronaldo, as if parodying the Portuguese. 

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner responded with an effective hit shortly before the break.

The 35-year-old player managed a beautiful shot into the near corner from outside the penalty area.

Along the way, he has established a couple of landmark achievements.

Firstly, he scored in the 15th Champions League season in a row, and secondly, he reached 70 home goals in the tournament, catching up on this indicator Lionel Messi.

In the second half of the meeting, Juventus did everything to snatch the victory, but until a certain moment the team was not lucky - the players from Turin hit the post twice after the break.

In the 92nd minute, Alvaro Morata brought the most important three points to the hosts.

The Spaniard closed the serve Juan Cuadrado from the right flank, and the ball slipped between Denes Dibus's legs.

The striker scored his fifth goal in the current Champions League season and repeated his personal performance record in the tournament.

Fernandes refuses hat-trick

In Group H, Manchester United took revenge against Istanbul Basaksehir for the defeat in the previous round match (1: 2).

At home, the Mankunians defeated the reigning champion of Turkey - 4: 1, scoring three unanswered goals in the first half.

The main hero of the confrontation was Bruno Fernandes, who scored a double by the 20th minute.

First, he hit the goal of Mert Gynok with a beautiful shot from the penalty line, and then took advantage of the goalkeeper's gross mistake, who released the ball from his hands.

Closer to the break, the Portuguese could have distinguished himself for the third time.

Marcus Rashford earned a penalty, and Fernandes was supposed to beat him, but he conceded this right to a partner who converted a penalty kick and scored the fifth goal in the current Champions League season.

In the second half of the meeting, Manchester United began to conserve strength and allowed the opponent to score a goal of prestige.

Denis Tyuryuch managed to hit the goal of David De Gea from a free-kick.

However, in the added time by the referee, substitute Daniel James nevertheless brought the score to a large one.

PSG also managed to avenge the defeat for the opponent.

Three weeks ago, the Parisians lost on the road to Leipzig (1: 2), and took revenge at home - 1: 0.

The decisive factor for the team's victory was the return to Neymar.

Before the game, the head coach of the hosts Thomas Tuchel noted that the Brazilian "is not 100% ready, but will play from the first minutes."

As a result, the striker was replaced only at the end of the meeting.

Already at the beginning of the match, he converted a penalty awarded for a foul by Marcel Zabitzer on Angel Di Maria.

This goal was 36th for Neymar in the Champions League, and he came third in the number of goals in this tournament among players from South America.

Now the Brazilian is second only to Messi (118) and Sergio Aguero (40).

PSG confidently brought the case to victory.

Leipzig had more possession of the ball, but practically did not penetrate into someone else's penalty area and threatened the opponent's goal only from a long distance.

As a result, the teams delivered only six shots on target for two.
