UEFA Champions League: Spurs Crash Out, Leicester City Progress and Dortmund beat Legia Warsaw 8-4


It was UEFA Champions League night once again, and while some venues had sad faces of crashed out players, another had cheers of a winning streak and records were set elsewhere.

Tottenham Hotspurs have crashed out of the Champions League after falling 2-1 to Monaco in France.

Djibril Sidibe headed Monaco ahead just after half-time but their lead lasted only four minutes as Harry Kane converted a 52nd minute penalty after Dele Alli was fouled in the penalty area.

Monaco regained the lead a minute later as Thomas Lemar drove the ball into the bottom corner.

Hugo Lloris saved a first half penalty from Radamel Falcao after Eric Dier fouls Henrique Fabinho in the area.

Spurs will have to win their last group game if they are to pip CSKA Moscow to a chance in the Europa League.

In another game that involved a Premier League team, Leicester City confirmed their place in the knockout stages with a 2-1 win over Club Bruges in Group G.

Shinji Okazaki fired the hosts in front when he met Christian Fuchs cross in the fifth minute of the game then Riyad Mahrez doubled the Foxes’ advantage from the spot after Marc Albrighton had been brought down.

Jose Izequierdo pulled a goal back for the visitors with a stunning solo effort in the second half.

Claudio Ranieri’s side held to their one-goal lead despite a late onslaught and now sit top og Group G, and yet to lose a game.

Meanwhile in far away Germany, it was a good night for attacking and a shameful one for the defensive part of the game, but we loved every second of it as Borussia Dortmund played out a 8-4 thriller with Legia Warsaw.

Aleksandar Prijovic opened scoring for the visitors in the 11th minute but Shinji Kagawa grabbed an equalizer soon after and gave Dortmund the lead almost immediately.

Nuri Sahin scored Dortmund’s third before Prijovic got his second of the evening in the 25th minute.

Two goals in three minutes from Ousmane Dembele and Marco Reus wrapped up a seven-goal firts half.

The second half started with Dortmund extending the lead to six as Reus tapped in the 52nd minute with Legia’s Michal Kucharczyk pulling one back.

Felix Passlack made it seven for Dortmund in the 81st minute and two minutes later Nemanja Nikolic scored Warsaw’s fourth of the game.

With what was apparently the last action of the match, Reus grabbed his hat trick as to send Dortmund to the top of the group.

The German side now have a date with Real Madrid, who beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1 away, to battle out who wins the group.
