UEFA Champions League: Juventus, Barcelona top, Man Utd and PSG flop

Juventus and Barcelona see the 2021 UEFA Champions League round of 16, after victories respectively over Ferencvaros and Dinamo Kiev, with the super performances of Alvaro Morata and Lionel Messi. The Champions League Wednesday opened with Lazio's draw with Zenit St.

Petersburg, but also with Manchester United's defeat in Istanbul against Basaksehir. Among the surprises of the evening, however, was PSG's defeat with RB Leipzig. Of note, the nightmare night of the former Inter Internazionale Milano full-back Dalbert, now at Rennes.

The Brazilian gives Chelsea two penalties and is sent off. RB Leipzig beat PSG 2-1. Tuchel's team rockets. And at 6 'on an assist from former Juve Kean, Di Maria beats Gulacsi with a left that ends up in the low corner.

Leipzig gains confidence and draws in the 41st minute. Nkunku with a nice right footed shot hole Keylor Navas. At 56 'another penalty whistled for Kurzawa's handball. And from 11 meters, the Swede Forsberg makes the Germans win.

Dormund, Sevilla and Man Utd

Borussua Dortmund beat Club Bruges 3-0: Germans absolute masters of the field. To break the deadlock in the 14th minute Thorgan Hazard with a nice left from the center of the area. Only 4 'later, Erling Haaland doubled.

The Norwegian striker from close range makes no mistake and coldly shoves Mignolet. At 32 'he takes advantage of a perfect assist from Meunier and from two steps from the left Haaland still can't go wrong. Sevilla beat Krasnodar 3-2: in the first half the Russians were unleashed and dragged by Suleymanov.

At 17 'it is the 20-year-old baby phenomenon who breaks the deadlock with a wonderful free kick that slips into the corner of the posts. A few minutes later, Berg scores a penalty which he then scores with a low shot from the bottom left.

Basaksehir defeats Manchester United 2-1. Solskjaer's team with Pogba, Cavani, De Gea and Greenwood on the bench is punished by Demba Ba who, guilty left alone, flies from midfield and puts Henderson in the lower right corner.

At 40 'taking advantage of another defensive error and a good assist from Turuc, it is captain Visca who squeezed under the crossbar with a great right shot. Three minutes later, however, Martial, perhaps the best of United, thinks about reopening the game on a cross from Luke Shaw.

The header strikes the ball into the bottom right corner. In the second half Solskjaer throws in Cavani, Pogba, Grenwood. But United still hurt.
