How Various UCL Groups Stand After Chelsea And Man Utd Masterclass Performances

Clubs in Groups E, F, G and H played their 5th respective UEFA Champions League (UCL) games yesterday. Things did not go as planned for some teams while everything worked out perfectly for others.

Manchester United won its first game after sacking club legend and coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United moved to 10 points in Group F after their 2:0 victory over Reigning UEFA Europa League (UEL) Champions, Villarreal. Juventus could not record a double win over English giants, Chelsea. Chelsea took revenge for its first leg loss in Turin, Italy by putting 4 solid goals past Juventus. Chelsea now sit at the top of Group H and are on level points with Juventus.

Sevilla and Lille also won their respective games against Wolfsburg and Salzburg. Bayern Munich continued their impressive form in the UCL this season. The German giants have 5 wins out of 5 games and thus sit at the top of Group E with 15 points.

Barcelona also failed to secure the 3 points at home in their game against SL Benfica. Barcelona currently sit at a very tight position on Group E with 7 points; 8 points behind group leaders, Bayern Munich and just two points ahead of Benfica who is currently at the 3rd position. Atalanta and Young Boys played a 3:3 draw. This keeps Atalanta at the 3rd position (a point behind Villarreal) and Young Boys at the bottom of Group F.
