    Was fun will it lasted but Spurs win 4-2, Real Madrid 2-0 up v PSG but it finishes 2-2 with Mbappe and Sarabia goal in the last 10 mins, Man City could only manage a point at home to Shakhtar and Bayern beat Red Star 6-0 with Lewandowski getting four goals!

    Both Ajax and Inter are out and drop down to the Europa League, they both lost at home to La Liga opposition. Ajax lost to Valencia 0-1 and Inter to Barcelona 1-2, Barca were guaranteed to qualify so rested players including Messi but youngsters Carlos Perez and Ansu Fati got them the win and Fati is now the youngest Champions League goal-scorer ever at just 17 and 40 days old!

    Chelsea and Liverpool pick up comfortable wins over Lille and Salzberg respectively and both qualify, Liverpool as group winners and Chelsea runners up to Valencia.

    Ajax would have been through if they didn't get uefa'd in that Chelsea game.

    Did you watch last night's game? The referee sure as hell had his whistle in Valencia favour mode. And it was ridiculously obvious too.

    There wasn't a lot of anything newsworthy from tonight's games as this bunch of groups were pretty much decided, there were some big wins for the big teams, Man City beat Dinamo 1-4, PSG beat Galatasaray 5-0, Bayern beat Spurs 3-1 and Real beat Brugge 1-3.

    No more massive clubs drop down to the Europa League after Ajax and Inter last night, the only real big club dropping down from tonight is Bayer Leverkusen.

    I don't know when the draw for the knockouts is, the biggest teams who finished runners up were the two Madrid teams and they are the ones that the group winners will hope to avoid.

    Nope, but what a **** show. Teams qualify based on revenue now.

    Atalanta with an historic qualification. They failed to win any of their first 4 group games and managed to make it through with Man City.

    Some very tasty draws in there... very tough games for the English teams except perhaps Spurs, but they've been blowing hot and cold this year...

    My money is on Liverpool to scrape through, and Spurs too... but Chelsea and Man City will be lucky.

    Real Madrid vs Man City is an awesome draw because it means one of them is going out. Brilliant.

    Tell that to the Man U fans who just went to Kazakhstan in -10*C temperatures, or the Chelsea and Arsenal fans who had to fly to Azerbaijan to see their teams in a final.

    Last time I flew anywhere from Heathrow it took me longer to get to Heathrow than any of those trips.

    Any Wales fans trying to get from North Wales to Cardiff have to travel at least 4 hours, often 5+.

    Champions League is back this week from its winter slumber, here are the four last 16 first leg games.

    Tuesday
    Atletico Madrid v Liverpool
    Borussia Dortmund v Paris Saint Germain

    Wednesday
    Atalanta v Valencia
    Tottenham v Leipzig

    All four games are 8pm GMT kick-off.

    Atletico 1-0 Liverpool
    Dortmund 2-1 PSG
    Atalanta 4-1 Valencia
    Spurs 0-1 Leipzig

    Saul got Atletico's goal on 5 minutes then they did what they pretty much always do, they sat back and stifled the opposition, they were extremely well-organised and Liverpool couldn't break them down, Liverpool had 76% possession but no shots on target. Its only Liverpool's third defeat of the season, the atmosphere at the Wanda was magnificent and you can beat your arse that it'll be just as good at Anfield in two weeks.

    Haaland got both Dortmund goals and the second was an incredible strike, that 39 in just 29 appearances for him this season now! Neymar gave PSG a lifeline.

    Atalanta battered Valencia, two goals came from Hateboer with Ilicic and Freuler getting the others, Cheryshev gave Valencia a glimmer of hope.

    Quite an even game between Spurs and Leipzig, Leipzig dominated the first half and their goal came from a Werner penalty after Ben Davies's clumsy challenge in the box, Tottenham pressed for an equaliser but it wasn't to be, it was always going to be hard for them without Kane and Son but its only a slender lead that Leipzig have so Spurs still have a chance

    A bit surprised no one else posted about the CL last week.

    Here are this weeks first leg games.

    Tuesday
    Chelsea v Bayern Munich
    Napoli v Barcelona

    Wednesday
    Lyon v Juventus
    Real Madrid v Man City

    All games are 8pm GMT kick-off.

    Chelsea 0-3 Bayern Munich
    Napoli 1-1 Barcelona
    Real Madrid 1-2 Man City
    Lyon 1-0 Juventus

    Bayern took Chelsea apart in the second half of their game, Gnabry with two goals and Lewandowski with the other plus he got both assists for Gnabry's goals, Alonso got sent off for Chelsea as well, looking almost impossible for them to qualify now.

    Mertens and Griezmann got the goals for Napoli and Barcelona.

    Isco took the lead for Real Madrid following a defensive calamity for City, then Real lost the plot, firstly Jesus equalised then Carvajal gave away a penalty after he brought down Sterling, De Bruyne converted the penalty calmly and then Ramos predictably got himself sent off for bringing down Jesus when he was the last man, Ramos 26th red card! Gives Man City a big advantage in the second leg.

    Lyon perhaps surprisingly have the advantage after the first leg against Juve, Tousart got their goal.
