Final Champions League - Champions League, all its decided for knockout stages

One of the main matches in the Champions League that got a lot of attention was Real Madrid vs Napoli. Gli Azzuri arrived at the Bernabeu seeking a result which would seal their position in the knockout phase. 

That would prove to be no easy task as playing at the home of the kings of Europe is not for the weak. Simeone had give Napoli the lead as the ball just managed to creep in over the line. Rodrygo then leveled the scoring to give Real Madrid momentum. Few minutes later Alaba’s cross into the six yard box was met by Bellingham who headed it home. Anguissa then equalized scoring from a tight angle. Paz who played his second Champions League match then netted what would be the winner for Los Blancos. Joselu who had missed so many chances earlier wrapped it up with a finish by the near post.

Another Champions League match that was enjoyable to watch was Benfica vs Inter. The two European clubs played out to a 3-3 draw which saw Benfica’s chance of making the Europa League become slimmer. Benfica had taken a 3-0 lead through a surprising Joao Mario hattrick in the first half. Aguias were coasting through the match until Inter got a goal back through a controversial VAR decision. A few moments later Frattesi made it 3-2 with a wonderful finish. South American veteran then tied the score through a penalty. It is remarkable for Inter to get back in the game as they had their key players like Lautaro, Barella and others on the bench.

Lastly the Champions League game that arguably made headlines was Galatasaray vs Manchester United. The Red Devils faced a must win game ahead of their trip to Istanbul. It was not to be however for the English giants as they bottled a two goal lead due to some Onana errors. This only piled more misery on Erik Ten Hag’s men who are starring at a group stage exit. Manchester United will now need to beat Bayern Munich at Old Trafford and hope Copenhagen draw with Galatasaray.
