Champions League: LOSC walks in Wolfsburg and goes in 8th, Benfica passes at the expense of FC Barcelona


At the end of a very interesting evening, the LOSC obtained its ticket for the final phase by crushing Wolfsburg in Germany (3-1). Benfica, who disposed of Dynamo Kiev (2-0), also passes while Barça will play the Europa League in a few months.

End of the Champions League group stage on Wednesday evening and therefore the last chance for the clubs involved to win their ticket for the round of 16, the draw of which will take place on Monday noon. After the victory of PSG against FC Bruges on Tuesday evening (4-1), LOSC played its European future tonight on the lawn of Wolfsburg (group G). Leaders with 8 units, the Mastiffs only needed a draw to ensure their qualification but a victory to finish first, without depending on the result of Salzburg-Sevilla. With a 4-4-2 team and a David-Yilmaz duo at the forefront, the visitors started the game perfectly by opening the scoring after 11 minutes of play. In counter-attack, Celik launched Ikoné who ran towards the surface for serve Yilmaz. At the far post, the Turk then adjusted Casteels for the first goal of the game (11th, 0-1).

Jocelyn Gourvennec’s players therefore scored on one of their highlights since they suffered in this first act, with this cannonball from Waldschmidt (13th) or these heads from Weghorst (24th, 28th). Behind, the Wolves pushed more and more but it did not work (31st, 33rd, 40th). Although jostled before the break, the Mastiffs reacted slightly to the return of the locker room with an opportunity from Ikoné (53rd) or a shot from Yilmaz (64th). Finally, the LOSC doubled the bet thanks to David, well helped by the post (72nd, 0-2) before driving the nail on a realization of Gomes (78th, 0-3). At the end of the game, the French club relaxed and Steffen saved the honor for VfL (89th, 1-3) but this achievement did not change anything. The LOSC thus imposed itself with the manner and will be at the rendezvous of the 8th.

Benfica “eliminates” Barça, MU hung

In the group’s other match, RB Salzburg hosted Sevilla FC. Victorious, the LOSC no longer depended on the result of this game but thanks to an achievement by Okafor (50th), the locals won on the smallest of margins (1-0) to validate their ticket for the final phase, while the Andalusian club was transferred to the Europa League. But the game that was very interesting tonight was Benfica-Dynamo Kiev in Lisbon. Bayern Munich having defeated FC Barcelona (3-0), the SLB had the opportunity to slip away in the 8th if successful. And in front of their audience, the people of Lisbon got the job done!

After the opener from Yaremchuk (16th), Gilberto doubled the stake (22nd) for Benfica Lisonne who kept this result to win 2-0 and therefore slip away in the next round. And this success especially condemned Barça who, with the defeat in Munich, finished third in Group E with one point less than Benfica! A huge surprise therefore for the Blaugranas, who will have to continue their European adventure in C3. Finally, on the lawn of Old Trafford, Manchester United challenged the Young Boys of Bern in Pool F. Hanging (1-1), the Red Devils consolidated their first place, while the Atalanta-Villarreal match was postponed to him. due to weather conditions with heavy snow.
