Barcelona Face Playoff Exit, Sancho Bags First Goal for United.

Xavi’s UEFA Champions League debut as Barcelona Coach didn’t live up to the expectation as the Blaugrana were held to a goal-less draw by Benfica at the Camp Nou.

Benfica’s goalkeeper, Odisseas Vlachodimos, kept Benfica in the match with a flurry of saves throughout both halves. This leaves Barcelona desperate for a Group F final fixture in order to qualify for the playoffs.

If Benfica beat Dynamo Kiev, and Barcelona lose to Bayern Munich, Barcelona will fail to qualify for the UEFA Chmapions League playoffs. A stat that is unheard of.

Chelsea ran riot at Stamford Bridge as they put four past the Old Lady. Reece James scored yet another rocket to rack up his tally to five goals, more than any other Chelsea player so far this season. Chelsea are through to the playoffs and seem ready to defend their title.

Cristiano Ronaldo continued his healthy scoring form that helped Manchester United seal a late double against Villareal at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

In Michael Carrick’s first match in charge as interim coach following the release of Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the Manchester board will be left relieved their share prices are on their way up.

Also, Jadon Sancho bagged his long overdue first goal in Man United colours. Manchester United top their group and are set to qualify, but still need some work to do to challenge for the prestigious title.
