Champions League scores, highlights: PSG runs rampant, Juve-Barca draw and Manchester United shocked
Some knockout stage spots will be secured on Wednesday
The Champions League group stage's fifth matchday is over. There was a big upset, a lack of goals in most games and then an eight-goal bashing in Paris. Here's what you need to know and see.
CSKA Moscow 2, Benfica 0
Chelsea 4, Qarabag 0
Sporting Lisbon 3, Olympiacos 1
Juventus 0, Barcelona 0
Atletico Madrid 2, Roma 0
Bayern Munich 2, Anderlecht 1
Basel 1, Manchester United 0
PSG 7, Celtic 1
Chelsea through to round of 16
The Blues were in one of the two early games, if you want to call it a game. Chelsea rolled to a 4-0 win at Qarabag and are through to the round of 16. Willian stole the show with two fine goals, his second a rocket strike from outside the box.
Chelsea advancing means either Roma or Atletico Madrid will fail to make the knockout stage. The two play at 2:45 p.m. ET in a big one.
Neymar and PSG roll
Celtic took a surprising lead over PSG just a minute into their contest in the French capital, but it didn't take long for Neymar and company to respond. PSG rallied and had four goals by the 35th minute, but they had four more goals left in them. Neymar's second was a fine finish off some brilliant passing with Marco Verratti. Take a look:
But Dani Alves must have said, "hold my beer."
The Brazilian outside Neymar with this amazing golazo to make it 7-1.
And with that performance, PSG made history, beating Borussia Dortmund's group stage goal record. Dortmund had 21 last season, and PSG has 24 with a game to go. Dominant.
Messi doesn't start, Barca goes through
Lionel Messi was on the bench for Barcelona against Juve, a surprise to many. But maybe Ernesto Valverde is thinking ahead while being cautious. Barca is all but through from the group stage, and over in La Liga, first-place Barca has to go to second-place Valencia on Sunday in a big-time matchup. Keeping Messi fresh for that one certainly makes sense. He came on in the second half and played a bit, as the match finished 0-0 with Juve threatening late.
The result was enough for Barca to clinch a spot in the round of 16
Manchester United shocked
It's a night to forget for United and one to remember for Basel, as they got an 89th minute winner. The goal came at the back post from Michael Lang and allowed the Swiss club to move into second place in the group behind CSKA Moscow on nine points. United has 12 and is almost a lock to go through, but Jose Mourinho certainly expected to cement a spot in the next round on Wednesday.
Goal of the week
It goes to out-of-form Antoine Griezmann, who may have gotten the goal he needed to get back on track. The Atletico Madrid man produced a stunning overhead kick goal as Atleti beat Roma 2-0 to keep its UCL hopes alive. Check out this sweet strike:
