UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WEDNESDAY GAMES FINAL RESULTS

UEFA Champions League continued tonight with the remaining two Spanish Football Clubs in action. Here are the final results along with the goalscorers.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014

Atletico de Madrid hosted Olympiakos for their Group A match. Important game for the Spaniards as they needed a win to secure their presence into the next stage of Champions League. The final result went the Spaniards way with a convincing 4 - 0 victory that included a HAT-TRICK by Mandzukic. Atletico could now finish top of Group A if they can draw/win their next match against Juventus, or lose by just one goal. 

A totally different story from the last time they meet in Athens, with At. Madrid dominating on all fronts with their habitual intensity, pressure Football & and their Croatian Forward Mandzukic in tune. 

Goals fell in the following order:
  • Raul Garcia 9th min, 1 - 0
  • Mandzukic 38th min, 2 - 0
  • Mandzukic 62nd min, 3 - 0
  • Mandzukic 65th min, 4 - 0
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014

Basel FC hosted Real Madrid for their Group B match. The final result was a 0 - 1 win to Real Madrid, thus securing top spot of the Group & notching up their 15th straight win. However, misleading was the result as the locals gave the visitors a run for their money that could have given Real Madrid a surprise. 

Basel lost but showed they are a tough nut to crack with a solid defence, aggressive & brave that was perhaps let down by some less than effective finishing. They created & had goal chances in the second half & made Real Madrid sweat to keep them out.

The winner came in the 34th min when Benzema did his magic running the left wing to the corner line to find an incoming Cristiano Ronaldo who fired home. 

In conclusion, a tough night at the office for Real Madrid, but the job was done.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL RESULTS | TUESDAY GROUP GAMES

UEFA Champions League matches tonight with two Spanish Football representatives with Group obligations. Positive outcomes with the following final results & all the goal scorers.

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014

FC Barcelona travelled to Cyprus to play Apoel in their Group F clash. The final score a comfortable 0 - 4 win to FC Barcelona in a match that had two red cards: Rafinha for Barça in the 69th min & Guiherme for Apoel in the 84th min. However, these red cards had null effect on the game which was dominated throughout by Barça.

The highlights was that Neymar was given a rest for Pedro & Busquets rested for Mascherano. Luis Suarez scored his first goal, the opener for Barça beautifully executed in the 27th min & lastly the HAT-TRICK of Lionel Messi with goals in the 38th, 57th & 87th min.  These goals took Messi past Raul Gonzalez (Real Madrid) on 72 goals to a new mark of 74 goals, a current new all-time Champions League goalscoring record mark.  

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE 2014

Athletic Club Bilbao travelled to the Ukraine to face Shakhtar in their Group H match. The Spanish team won 0 - 1 & gave their best version too late in the competition as they were eliminated before the kick-off. The winning goal came in the 68th min through San Jose. Great effort by Bilbao to pull off their first Champions League win,  & now puts them up in their next  Group match against Bate to get a ticket for the Europa League competition

The rest of Champions League games tomorrow night with Real Madrid & Atletico de Madrid in action.
