Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG in Champions League last 16

London. Europe’s top teams Manchester City and Real Madrid secured their places in the last 16 of the Champions League football tournament after winning their respective matches on Wednesday, but Atletico Madrid are on the verge of being eliminated. Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) could not capitalize on an early lead with a goal from Kylian Mbappe and lost 2-1 to City. Despite this, this French team managed to make it to the knockout stage from Group A. Real Madrid avenged their 2-1 loss to the Moldova side two months earlier by beating Sheriff 3-0 and made it to the last 16.

David Alaba, Toni Kroos and Karim Benzema scored for Real. Apart from Real from Group D, Inter Milan entered the knockout stage. He defeated Shakhtar Donysk 2-0 in another match. Three-time European champions Inter Milan made it to the last 16 after 10 years. Meanwhile, Sporting Lisbon beat Borussia Dortmund 3-1 with two goals from Pedro Gonzalez to end their 13-year wait to reach the knockouts.

Sporting lost to Ajax and Dortmund in Group C in September, but with three consecutive victories, Portugal’s champions were able to advance with one match remaining. Ajax had already made it to the knockout from this group. Ajax and Liverpool registered their fifth consecutive win in their respective groups. Ajax beat Besiktas 2–1 with two goals from Sebastian Haller, while Liverpool beat Porto 2–0 in Group B.

Liverpool have taken a 10-point lead over second-placed Porto in their group. In this group, the last round matches on December 7 are going to be very important, as apart from Porto, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid are in the race to reach the knockouts.

AC Milan kept their hopes alive after beating Atletico 1-0 with a goal from Junior Messias in the 87th minute. Milan now have to host Liverpool while Atletico have to play a match against Porto at their home ground.
