Chelsea stunned in Champions League
    2017-November-2  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

PARIS Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich advanced to the Champions League knockout stage with wins Tuesday night, while Chelsea suffered a shock defeat.

Roma topped Group C after a comprehensive 3-0 dismantling of Chelsea at the Stadio Olimpico courtesy of a Stephan El Shaarawy brace.

The hosts got off to a dream start when a cross into the area glanced off Edin Dzeko’s shoulder and bounced right to an onrushing El Shaarawy, who blasted a right-footed shot past Thibaut Courtois for the early lead.

Chelsea saw three good chances go begging in the opening half hour, Cesc Fabregas firing wide from 18 meters, before Eden Hazard shot right at Allison in the Roma goal and Alvaro Morata skied one over the crossbar when left alone at very close range.

Roma would be two ahead at half-time after the Chelsea defense made a mess of handling a Roma ball into the penalty area and El Shaarawy ghosted in and neatly tucked a shot past Courtois for his second.

The game was effectively over just past the hour mark when a poor pass from Fabregas allowed Roma to break the other way and Diego Perotti fired his team’s third goal of the night past a helpless Courtois to put the Serie A side one point ahead of Chelsea in the table.

Meanwhile, Layvin Kurzawa scored a second-half hat trick as Paris Saint-Germain advanced from Group B with a 5-0 win over Anderlecht.

The Belgian side held firm for a half-hour before Neymar fed Kylian Mbappe atop the box, and the teenager played in Marco Verratti, who had time to pick his spot and curl a shot into the back of the net.

Neymar then got on the scoresheet himself on the final play of the first half. After playing a short corner to Julian Draxler, Neymar got the ball back, raced to the middle and fired a shot in off the hand of goalkeeper Frank Boeckx.

Early in the second half, Boeckx dove to push Neymar’s free kick onto the post, only for the ball to come back out to the center where Kurzawa was waiting to net PSG’s third.

Kurzawa delivered a diving header into an open net for his second goal in the 72nd minute, then completed his hat trick in the 78th by lashing a low, left-footed shot home through the box.

PSG remained three points ahead of Bayern Munich, which ensured its own place in the next round by managing a 2-1 win away to Celtic.

Young Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar was the focus again as his own goal allowed Manchester United to earn a 2-0 home win in Group A.

Barcelona failed to score away to Olympiakos in Group D, as Ernesto Valverde’s men were held to a 0-0 draw at the Karaiskaki Stadium.
