The UEFA Champions League Results Thus Far

The UEFA Champions League is only getting heated and more and more clubs are seeing dimmer prospects for qualification to the last 16. In the Group Stage’s matchday 4 of 6, Chelsea beat Malmo a mere 1-0, Wolfsburg beat RB Salzburg 2-1, while Villarreal beat Young Boys 2-0. Juventus continued an impressive run with a 4-2 win over Zenit, as did Bayern Munich who thrashed Benfica 5-2. Lille beat Sevilla 2-1, as Barcelona, now under new coach Xavi Hernandez, beat Dynamo Kyiv a mere 1-0.

Dismal Performances from Man United and PSG

Manchester United continued their dismal campaign with a 2-2 draw against Atalanta, as Real Madrid beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-1. AC Milan, on the other hand, drew 1-1 with Porto, as Sporting trampled Besiktas 4-0. Ajax were not left behind and hammered a 10-man Borussia Dortmund 3-1, similar to Inter Milan who hammered Sheriff 3-1. Liverpool performed rather dismally than expected with their 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid. Manchester City, on their part, were on a roll thrashing Club Brugge 4-1, after thrashing them 5-1 in matchday 3 on 19th October. Paris Saint-Germain performed dismally, on their part, with a 2-2 draw against RB Leipzig.

UEFA League Standings

Manchester City and PSG are atop Group A of the UEFA Champions League with 9 points, and 8 points respectively. On top of Group B are Liverpool with 12 points, and Porto with 5 points. However, Atletico Madrid are a close third with 4 points and may as well upend FC Porto. Leading Group C is Ajax with 12 points, followed by Borussia Dortmund with 6 points. BVB have to be careful as they are followed closely by Sporting who are third also with 6 points. Real Madrid are atop Group D with 9 points, followed by Inter Milan who are second with 7 points. However, Sheriff have a good chance at qualification as they come in third with 6 points.

Wolfsburg vs Sevilla
Wolfsburg vs Sevilla. Wolfsburg have been showing good quality but need a little more effort to get to the last-16. Sevilla on the other hand, aren’t doing so well.

Comfortable Lead for Bayern Munich

Group E is comfortably led by Bayern Munich who have 12 points. Barcelona are a far second with 6 points and can be easily overtaken by Benfica who come in third with 4 points. Manchester United lead Group F with 7 points, followed by Villareal who are second also with 7 points. The danger here is that Atalanta are third with 5 points and may as well upend the two to go top of the group. Atop Group G are RB Salzburg with 7 points, followed by Lille with 5 points. Again, no one can be comfortable here yet as Wolfsburg is third with 5 points. To sum it up, Juventus are leading in Group H with 12 points, followed by Chelsea who are a comfortable second with 9 points. The two clubs are comfortable on top with no apparent risk from the other clubs in the group.
