The 5th day of the Champions League for the 2021-2022 season took place this Tuesday, November 23, from group E to group H. Here is a summary of this day
In Group E, Bayern Munich won 2-1 against Dynamo Kiev, with another goal from the inevitable Robert Lewandosky and another goal from Kingsley Coman. This allows the barvawois club to refuel so far and, suddenly, its number of points to 15. For its part, at home, FC Barcelona was held in check by Benfica, in a match without goal. A result that jeopardizes the qualification of Barça. Indeed, with 7 points, the Catalan club remains second but, on the last day, in the event of a defeat against Bayern and a victory for the Lisbon club (which has 5 points) against Dynamo, the Barcelona will be eliminated from the competition from the first round.
Manchester United were able to count on a good Christiano to sink the Yellow Submarines in a difficult 0-2 game; a goal from Christiano and a goal from Jadon Sancho. This victory allows the Mancunian club to pocket its qualification for the knockout stages. Manchester are in first place with 10 points and are sure to finish first. In the other Group F match, Atalanta was held in check by Young Boys in a goal-rich match (3-3). Atalanta (6 points) will face Villareal (7 points) to determine which team will inherit the other qualifying place.
After a difficult victory over Salzburg 1-0 thanks to the inevitable J. David, Lille took the lead of group G with 10 points; a serious option for qualification. On the other side, Sevilla FC wins against Wolfsburg 2 goals to 0. In this group, there is not yet a qualified or eliminated. Lille, 1st in the group has 8 points, Salzburg is second with 7 points, Sevilla FC is third with 6 points and Wolfsburg is last with 5 points. The last day of this group will be very interesting!
