Tuesday UEFA Champions league actions just ended. It was rain of goals and unbelievable thrillers of the Tuesday UEFA Champions league. See table below for goal updates at full time.
The second goal was a carbon copy of the first goal!Roberto Firmino is through but his effort is well saved by Sergio Rico.
The corner is arced in by Philippe Coutinho, Firmino flicks it on and Sadio Mane stoops at the back post with a diving header to double Liverpool’s lead.
Sevilla fail to keep men at the far post and are punished…twice.
Mane’s first goal since August and the Reds are heading to the knockout stages.
Rem that Liverpool took the lead after 88 seconds.
Philippe Coutinho swings in the corner, which little Gigi Wijnaldum flicks on at the front post.
The home defenders have all fallen asleep, allowing Roberto Firmino a free tap-in from close range.
Liverpool going through as it stands.
Quite what Vinicius was playing at, backheeling a clearance out in teh first place, is anotehr question.
The champions will be through with a win remember.
He’s been under pressure after a barren run of goals but give Karim Benzema a sniff and he usually delivers. It’s a lovely move too, Cristiano Ronaldo laying the ball back to Toni Kroos, Benzema darting in behind and Kroos finding him with a peach of a pass. Benzema takes a touch and steers home from 19 yards.
Real safely through?
Game, set and the match, surely.
You don’t mind Real Madrid scoring beauties pas you but when you let one centre-half nod it on and the other one head in from two yards it’s a bit poor.
Nacho on the end of it, onside, Three nil.
What a counter that is! Apoel have a corner, it’s cleared and Real Madrid suddenly have four men in on goal. Cristiano Ronaldo squares it unselfishly and it’s a tap-in for Karim Benzema.
His second, Real going through.
Cristiano Ronaldo has so many talents that it’s easy to forget sometimes just how good he is in the air. That’s a stupendous header, up early and highest to meet Marcelo’s cross and bury a header into the roof of the net.
What’s the record Champions League win?
There are still 35 minutes left in Cyprus. Karim Benzema is tackled by goalkeeper Nauzet Perez, the ball spins out to the left and Cristiano Ronaldo chases it down, you’d put money on him bringing the ball on to his right foot and facing up the defender but instead he clips a lazy left-footed finish into the net from 20 yards!
And Dries Mertens made it three at 83rd minute.
Dortmund defender Jeremy Toljan gives the ball away in his own half and his punished.
Dele Alli fizzes a pass into the feet of Harry Kane on the edge of the box.
The Spurs striker sets himself before drilling a low finish into the bottom corner. No chance for Roman Burki.
Six goals in five Champions League games for Kane now.
The barren run is over.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang strokes home low into the net for Borussia Dortmund after Andriy Yarmolenko’s sublime backheel put him through on goal.
As it stands, Dortmund still going out as Real Madrid are leading against Apoel Nicosia.
This is made by Dele Alli again.
The England international gets a lucky ricochet off two defenders but keeps his cool to pick out his team-mate in the box.
Son Heung-min, equally as composed, takes a touch and curls a finish into the top corner.
Beautiful and Spurs are going through as group winners ahead of Real Madrid.
