Although Manchester United silenced Benfica 2-0 at Old Trafford, Mile Svilar set a record for himself becoming the youngest goalkeeper to ever save a Champions League penalty.

At 18 years, 65 days, the Belgian set the mark just two weeks after making his Champions League debut by saving Anthony Martial’s 15th minute penalty to keep scores 0-0.

Sergio Aguero was on target as Manchester City blew away hosts Napoli 4-2 at Stadio San Paolo. And that was enough for him to break Eric Brook's record as City’s all-time leading scorer.

The Argentina striker now has 178 goals for City, surpassing Eric Brook's tally of 177. Brook scored his final goal for the club in 1939, meaning Aguero has broken a record that had stood for 78 years.
