Man United, Roma advance in UCL
    2017-December-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MANCHESTER United advanc-ed to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) knockout stage after rallying to beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 Tuesday to remain unbeaten at Old Trafford for a club record-equaling 40 successive games.

Basel joined United in the next phase from Group A by downing Benfica 2-0.

Paris Saint-Germain won Group B despite losing at Bayern Munich 3-1, the second straight loss for the French league leader.

Roma beat Qarabag 1-0 to top Group C ahead of already-qualified Chelsea.

The latter was held to 1-1 at home by Atletico Madrid, which was eliminated after reaching the final in two of the last four years.

England could have five teams in the last 16 for the first time if Liverpool advances.

Last year’s runner-up, Juventus, had to wait until the last group game to qualify. Juve won at Olympiakos 2-0 and joined group winner Barcelona, which beat Sporting Lisbon 2-0.

In Group A, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford scored in a 66-second span for United, which became the third English team to finish top of its group. Manchester City and Tottenham were already assured of first place heading into their final group games the next day.

Lukaku volleyed in just his second goal since September for the 64th-minute equalizer, and strike partner Marcus Rashford drove home an angled winner to complete the comeback.

Vitinho gave the visitors a 1-0 lead seconds before halftime.

Basel forward Mohamed Elyounoussi headed in a cross by Michael Lang five minutes into the game and Dimitri Oberlin doubled the advantage with another header in the 65th.

United won the group with three more points than Basel. CSKA was left with the Europa League, and Benfica completed a poor campaign without a single point.

In Group B, PSG’s impressive attack extended its tournament record of 24 goals in the group stage with another one. Kylian Mbappe scored the record 25th in six games.

But it was not enough for PSG to win and rebound from a stunning 2-1 loss to promoted Strasbourg in the French league over the weekend.

Robert Lewandowski got Bayern off to a flying start and Corentin Tolisso doubled Bayern’s lead before the break. The home side needed just two more in the second half to top the group, but Mbappe dented those hopes soon after the break when Edinson Cavani lifted the ball for the teen to head home.

Both sides finished with 15 points, well ahead of Celtic and Anderlecht, both on three. Anderlecht won in Glasgow 1-0 but Celtic finished third to take the Europa League spot.
