SPANISH FOOTBALL | UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RESULTS

The last two Spanish Football Clubs with UEFA Champions League Group qualifier duties tonight both finished with positive results. Here are short summaries with goalscorers & the final results.

Champions League

FC Barcelona hosted Manchester City & won 4 - 0. Manchester City Coach Guardiola was brought in this season to lift the English Club to a higher level with top European Clubs. If Barça is the perfect benchmark, Guardiola & his City has more work to do if they wish to get passed the "working end" of Champions League phases.

The handicap of being left with 10 men, after goalie Bravo was sent off, did not help. But the "party crasher" was Messi who was outstanding & scored a HAT-TRICK. The other scorer was Neymar who made up for his missed penalty.

Here are the goals:


1-0, 16': Messi,
2-0, 60': Messi, 
3-0, 68': Messi, 
4-0, 88': Neymar

Champions League Atletico Madrid

Atletico de Madrid travelled to Russia to play Rostov & won 0 - 1. Good result as playing away at Russia is always uncomfortable.

Deserved victory for Atletico which could have scored more had they finished their numerous goal opportunities. The only goal & winner came in the 61st min through in form player Yannik Carrasco.


The win puts At Madrid top of the group 3 points ahead of Bayern Munich.
