UEFA Champions League Group E and F: on the way to the last 16

FC Shakhtar Donetsk, Valencia CF and FC Bayern München have already booked their spots in the knockout phase.

Group E

Juventus 3-0 Chelsea FC
The Bianconeri sent their home fans into delirium having won a 3-0 thriller against Chelsea. One first-half goal from Fabio Quagliarella and two goals, netted in the second half by Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Giovinco brought Juve one point from the last 16. So the UEFA Champions League title holders have been put to the sward and are likely to leave the tournament at the group stage.

FC Nordsjælland 2-5 FC Shakhtar Donetsk
Shakhtar, who have qualified further, was involved into topsy-curvy encounter as they had to come from behind two times before claiming their lead in the second half. The first half of the match was a race for the guests. Nordstrand opened the scoring on the 24th minute, Luiz Adriano cancelled it out but the hosts seemed insistent and added a second via Lorentzen. The Ukrainian side leveled the score due to Willian, who scored right at the half-time mark. Willian and Luiz Adriano were the chief protagonists for Shakhtar in the second half, adding three more.

Group F

Valencia CF 1-1 FC Bayern München
Having claimed a draw in Spain, both proceed to the last 16 of the Champions League. The Spanish side took the lead via Sofiane Feghouli’s 77-minute goal and
Thomas Müller restored parity equalizing the score thus ensuring Bayern the move to the round of 16 along with Valencia.

FC BATE Borisov 0-2 LOSC Lille
Lille got the lead due to two first half goals from Djibril Sidibe and Gianni Bruno, though that can’t save them from eliminating because they are placed on the bottom of their group.
