    FT in the Champions League

    The second batch of games in the Champions League this evening have all wrapped now, and here are the final scores: Atalanta 2-2 Man Utd, Villarreal 2-0 Young Boys, Bayern 5-2 Benfica, Sevilla 1-2 Lille, Juventus 4-2 Zenit.

    Bayern have joined Juventus in the last 16 after their 5-2 thrashing of Benfica, where Robert Lewandowski (of course) scored a hat-trick. Man is unstoppable.

    Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo saves the day for Man Utd yet again.

    GOAL!!! Atalanta 2-2 Man Utd

    He's done it again! CR7 scores in stoppage time to equalise yet again against Atalanta at the death. It's a superb and important goal for the Red Devils – he surely loves this competition. What a strike, what technique.

    Zenit get a goal back through Sardar Azmoun, but it'll be a consolation goal.

    GOAL!! Bayern 5-2 Benfica

    Hat-trick for Robert Lewandowski. Is it even worth updating the scoreline whenever he's on the pitch??? He's just going to score bags of goals regardless! Hand him the Ballon d'Or already!
  • (Alvaro Morata)
    -

    GOAL!!! Juventus 4-1 Zenit

    Alvaro Morata finally gets his goal, and Juventus look sure to have booked their spot in the round of 16. They're four goals up now, and it's most likely game over.

    GOAL!!! Bayern 4-2 Benfica

    Benfica have scored yet another! That's a terrible goal to concede for Bayern, who make a defensive mess of it all. Benfica did well to go forward and slot in the goal to punish Bayern, and their lead has now been halved yet again.
  • (Federico Chiesa)
    -

    GOAL!! Juventus 3-1 Zenit

    BOOM! Juventus get their third after a fantastic run and goal from Federico Chiesa, running almost half the length of the pitch in a solo effort before slotting it into the bottom-right corner. It's a golazo indeed!
  • (Ansu Fati)
    -

    GOAL! Dynamo Kiev 0-1 Barcelona

    Barcelona finally take the lead through Ansu Fati! The Blaugrana wonderkid slots in a fine goal with so much pace and power that it looked as if it was going to burst through the net. Take a bow!

    GOAL! Bayern 4-1 Benfica

    Can we just give the Ballon d'Or to Robert Lewandowski already? An assist by Leroy Sane, and it's Lewy with the chip and his second of the evening!
  • (Duvan Zapata)
    -

    GOAL GIVEN! Atalanta 2-1 Man Utd

    Duvan Zapata's goal stands! Atalanta do have a lead against Man Utd, and the entire stadium is bouncing! What a goal that was, and what a goal to score against the Red Devils! It's completely awful defending by Man Utd, with Harry Maguire being rinsed as Zapata overtakes him. This is huge.
  • -

    OFFSIDE! Atalanta 1-1 Man Utd

    Atalanta think that they have re-taken the lead against Man Utd, but it's been ruled offside!
  • (Paulo Dybala)
    -

    GOAL! Juventus 2-1 Zenit

    This time it goes in! Paulo Dybala slots in a penalty with his second try after he was asked to re-take it, and Juventus regain their lead against Zenit.

    PENALTY MISS! Bayern 2-1 Benfica

    Robert Lewandowski has the chance to make give Bayern a 3-1 lead against Benfica, but he misses his penalty (which is a surprisingly very poor one)– and it's saved comfortably by the Benfica keeper. Will they rue this miss?
  • (Cristiano Ronaldo)
    -

    GOAL! Atalanta 1-1 Man Utd

    And Man Utd equalise just before the break! That's a devastating goal to concede by Atalanta, with none other than Cristiano Ronaldo having scored. It's 1-1!

    It's Robert Lewandowski's world, and we're all living in it 🌎

  • -

    GOAL! Bayern 2-1 Benfica

    Benfica have scored against Bayern, now halving their deficit! It's a fantastic goal by Morato, and what's more is that it's the first goal that Bayern have conceded this competition this season. Can Benfica kick-off a major comeback?

    Varane coming off injured

    Bad news continues for the Manchester United camp, as Raphael Varane comes off the pitch injured. He's replaced by Mason Greenwood.

    GOAL! Bayern 2-0 Benfica

    This could be a rout! Serge Gnabry doubles Bayern's lead after just 31 minutes, and this scoreline could very well grow and grow.

    GOAL! Bayern 1-0 Benfica

    Bayern have taken the lead against Benfica, and guess who scored? Not not Robert Lewandowski, that's who!

    Miss! Juventus 1-0 Zenit

    It's a great bit of play from Paulo Dybala to lay it on for Alvaro Morata, who's in prime position to double Juventus' lead – but he syrockets it over the crossbar. What a miss!
  • -

    Offside! Bayern 0-0 Benfica

    Benfica looked to have taken the lead against Bayern, but the flag's been raised for offside.
  • (Josip Ilicic)
    -

    GOAL! Atalanta 1-0 Man Utd

    Would you look at that! Looks like this evening's match-up between Atalanta and Man Utd is going to be just as interesting as the first, with the Italians taking an early lead against the Red Devils once again! Josip Ilicic's goal was an absolute rocket, and they go forward after just 13 minutes!
  • (Paulo Dybala)
    -

    GOAL! Juventus 1-0 Zenit

    And Juventus take the lead! It's Paulo Dybala with a wonderful goal from a corner, the Argentine's shot ricocheting off the ground and into the net! What a goal.

    Ole's still at the wheel...

    Can Ronaldo do it again?

    Cristiano Ronaldo Man Utd 2021Getty

    If he were to score tonight, Cristiano Ronaldo would make it four consecutive Champions League games with a goal for Man Utd.

    The last player to do that? Ruud van Nistelrooy.

  • -

    Another day, another clean sheet

    Since the arrivals of Thomas Tuchel and Eduard Mendy, Chelsea's backline has been near impenetrable.

  • -

    As things stand...

    With their win today, Chelsea sit second in Group H, level on nine points with Juventus ahead of the Italian side's clash with Zenit. Malmo, meanwhile are in last with no points through four games.

    Wolfsburg, meanwhile, now sit second in their group with five points, two behind RB Salzburg. Sevilla and Lille, who will face off tonight, have three and two points, respectively. 

  • -

    FINAL: Wolfsburg take down Salzburg

    A back-and-forth second half, but Wolfsburg have earned all three points. 

    After the two sides traded goals in the first half, a finish from Lukas Nmecha earned Wolfsburg three much-needed points.

  • -

    FINAL: Chelsea hold on

    Pulisic with a late chance that he puts just wide, but it won't matter as the Blues hold onto the 1-0 win. 

    Ziyech with the goal on a Hudson-Odoi assist, and it was just enough to seal all three points against Malmo.

    A record-break XI for Barca

    Pulisic and Barkley in

    A welcome sight for Chelsea fans, as Christian Pulisic and Ross Barkley are in the game.

    Lineups: Atalanta vs Manchester United

    Three changes for Man Utd, with Eric Bailly returning to the defence, Paul Pogba replacing  Fred in midfield and Marcus Rashford starting in the attack.

    Cristiano Ronaldo, of course, is the main man, and he starts up top after starring against Spurs this past weekend.

    Ziyech's first goal since...

    Chelsea celebrating Villarreal SupercupGetty

    With his goal tonight, Ziyech has found the back of the net for the first time since August.

    That goal? The opener in Chelsea's eventual shootout win over Villarreal in the UEFA SuperCup. 

  • -

    GOAL WOLFSBURG!

    And it's a beauty!

    Lukas Nmecha fires the German side into the lead with an incredible finish. After taking it down on his chest, Nmecha rifled one into the back of the net, making it 2-1.

    Lineups: Juventus vs Zenit

    A solid XI for Juventus, led by Morata and Dybala up top.
  • -

    GOAL CHELSEA!

    Ziyech!

    An absolutely INCREDIBLE ball from Hudson-Osoi, who should get all the credit for this one. He breaks through on the right-hand size and plays a picture-perfect low cross to Ziyech, who is left with little more than a tap-in on the back post.

    That makes it 1-0 Chelsea in the 56th minute.

    Second half underway!

    We're back underway in the two early games as Chelsea look to seperate themselves from Malmo.

    HALFTIME

    It's still scoreless in Chelsea's clash with Malmo, although the Blues have controlled the ball for the majority of the first half. That control hasn't produced a goal, though, as the Blues haven't quite found their breakthrough.

    There have been two goals in Salzburg's clash with Wolfsburg, though, as both teams have scored. An early goal from Baku was canceled out by Wober's stunning free kick, leaving the score level at one apiece 

  • -

    Great chance for Malmo

    Nearly a goal for Malmo, who were oh so close to stunning Chelsea just before halftime.

    The Blues were nearly caught sleeping on a ball over the top, but the shot is pusehd just wide of Eduard Mendy in goal. 

  • -

    Safe to say Chelsea are in control

  • A stunning free kick from Wober!
    -

    GOAL SALZBURG!

    Make it 1-1!

    Wober with a lovely free kick to level the score in RB Salzburg's clash with Wolfsburg. Been quite a first half in a clash that could go a long way towards deciding Group G.

  • -

    Bright start for Ziyech

    Ziyech has been the early star for Chelsea, having been at the centre of several chances.

    Still scoreless in Sweden, though, as Chelsea search for their breakthrough.

    A look back

    Chelsea Malmo 2021Getty

    Tonight's clash between Chelsea and Malmo comes just two weeks after the Blues' 4-0 win.

    On that day, Andrea Christensen and Kai Havertz each scored, while Jorginho converted twice from the penalty spot in the Stamford Bridge drubbing.

    However, the Blues did suffer a big loss that day as Romelu Lukaku was forced out due to injury.

    Meanwhile, Salzburg and Wolfsburg are set to face-off following the former's 3-1 win last time out behind a goal from Karim Adeyemi and a brace from Noah Okafor.
