Full Time: PSG 7-1 Celtic, Basel 1-0 Man Utd & Juve 0-0 Barca

UEFA Champions League: Ronaldo grabs brace as Real Madrid beat Borussia Dortmund

Basel 1-0 Manchester United
What drama late on here! With a minute to go Manchester United’s resolve finally deserts them as a back post cross is tapped home by Michael Lang.
A minute away from finishing top of the group, United are now set to enter the final matchday with a chance of going out
Manchester United will be very disappointed, they had all the chances in the first half. Basel were positive, they had a go at Manchester United, they kept going and deserved their goal. United still only need a point at home in their final group game. It will be interesting to see what Mourinho has to say about this.
Paul Pogba captains a Manchester United side that shows seven changes from the starting XI that beat Newcastle 4-1 at the weekend.
Marcos Rojo comes in for Victor Lindelof at centre-back while Marcus Rashford drops to the bench in favour of Jesse Lingard.
Luke Shaw and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are both primed on the bench.
Manchester United XI: Romero, Darmian Smalling, Rojo, Blind, Herrera, Fellaini, Lingard, Pogba, Martial, Lukaku

Juventus 0-0 Barcelona


Barcelona give Lionel Messi the best part of 35 minutes from the bench. Strange decision all round if you ask me.
Champions League: Juventus v Barcelona – Messi on bench


Juventus v Barcelona (19:45 GMT)
I can see the logic, sort of. Barca need a draw, away from home, and Ernesto Valverde has packed the midfield. But Gerard Deulofeu is playing…
Juventus: Buffon, Barzagli, Benatia, Rugani, Cuadrado, Pjaca, Khedira, Alex Sandro, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Higuain. Subs: Szczesny, De Sciglio, Marchisio, Matuidi, Mandzukic, Asamoah, Bentancur.
Barcelona: ter Stegen, Nelson Semedo, Pique, Umtiti, Digne, Rakitic, Sergio Busquets, Iniesta, Deulofeu, Luis Suarez, Paulinho. Subs: Cillessen, Denis Suarez, Messi, Alcacer, Jordi Alba, Aleix Vidal, Vermaelen.
Referee: Milorad Mazic (Serbia)
Paris Saint German 7-1 Celtic

GOAL – PSG 7-1 Celtic

Dani Alves (80 mins)
That’s a stupidly good goal! Again Neymar is involved down the left, his ball in is initially cleared (sensing a theme yet?) and it falls to Dani Alvesmaybe 25 yards out.
He addresses the ball straight on and somehow punts it with the outside of his foot, into the net off the inside of the far post. I’m not sure how he did that.

GOAL – PSG 6-1 Celtic

Edinson Cavani (79 mins)
Another very good goal indeed. Celtic can’t stick with their runners, you at 5-a-side 40 minutes into a game against some teenagers, as Neymar paints the picture down the left. In comes the cross, Edinson Cavani meets it and thumps in off the base of the post.

GOAL – Marco Verratti (75 mins)

Great goal again! Marco Verratti has played higher up the pitch than I’m used to seeing him tonight and that’s a crisp finish. Kylian Mbappe skips past Kieran Tierney on the right, Scott Brown can only nudge the ball out to the edge of the area and Verratti delivers it back into the bottom corner.
PSG then bring on Angel di Maria. Showboat.

GOAL! Kylian Mbappe (35 mins)

PSG are good enough to bury most sides but that’s now two goals Celtic have conceded from set-pieces. The ball in is not dealt with, Marquinhos flicks it on to Kylian Mbappe, he hammers in a shot and while Craig Gordon gets a hand to it it still goes in off the inside of the post.
This could get ugly for Celtic.
GOAL! Edinson Cavani 28 mins)
The floodgates are opening up now. PSG score an ugly goal to prove they can do it all, Neymar heading a free-kick across goal and presenting Edinson Cavani with an unmissable chance inside the six-yard box.
GOAL! Genius. That’s all you can really say. Nothing at all I think Celtic can do about this as Neymar pops a one-two with Marco Verratti, his first touch propels him beyond a Celtic defender and then he snakes home left-footed from just inside the area.
So accurate, so well struck.
GOAL! It was nice while it lasted! PSG 1-1 Celtic
Neymar had barely touched the ball but he has PSG level with a clinical strike. Celtic give the ball away under no pressure in midfield, criminal at this level, and Adrien Rabiot finds Neymar inside the area.
One touch to control, one to flash a left-footed shot across Craig Gordon and in from a tight angle.
GOAL !- PSG 0-1 Celtic
Moussa Dembele (2 mins)
This is not a drill!
Celtic lead, as they win a corner cheaply, it’s cut back to Moussa Dembeleand he cracks in a shot from 20 yards. Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola has got to deal with it though. Crisp-packet wrists, and he can only push it into the net!
CSKA Moscow 2-0 Benfica (FULL TIME)

End of an era!

CSKA Moscow 2-0 Benfica
CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has kept his first Champions League clean sheet (not including qualifiers) since 1st November 2006 against Arsenal – ending a run of 43 games without one!
Georgi Shchennikov scored in the 18 minutes and Jardel made an owned goal in the 58th minutes.
Sporting CP 3-0 Olympiacos
Atletico Madrid  2-0 Roma
Goal! Griezmann  scored in the 59th minute. And Kevin Gameiro made it second 85th minutes.
Anderlecht 1-2 Bayern Munich
