The team of the Upper Austrian coach Oliver Glasner won on Tuesday in the 6th and last round at Sporting Lisbon 2:1 and finished second in group D. Tottenham won the group with a 2:1 win at Olympique Marseille. The French were eliminated, Sporting continues to play in the Europa League intermediate round.

In the other three groups, the climbers had already been determined. In the top game of Group A, Napoli held first place despite a 0-2 loss at Liverpool, Ajax are playing in the Europa League after a 3-1 win at Glasgow Rangers. In Pool B, Porto took the lead with a 2-1 home win against Atletico Madrid, while the Spaniards were eliminated. Leverkusen handed a 0-0 home draw against newly promoted Club Brugge to third place. Bayern Munich won at home against co-promoted Inter Milan 2-0, for Barcelona it is after a 4-2 in Pilsen in the Europa League.

Drama in Group D

Group D had the expected drama, with the four teams separated by just two points after five games. The Frankfurters were behind at the break through a goal by Arthur Gomes (39th), but a controversial penalty kick brought about the turnaround. Daichi Kamada scored from the point to equalize (62′), Randal Kolo Muani ten minutes later to decide. In Marseille, Chancel Mbemba put the home team ahead (45′-2′). Clement Lenglet (54th) equalized, the Dane Pierre-Emile Höjberg fixed the group win at the last second (90th + 5th).

In Liverpool, Mohamed Salah (85′) and Darwin Nunez (90’+10′) inflicted one of the rare Italian defeats on Napoli. The Neapolitans had deserved a point for a long time, a goal by Leo Östigaard was disallowed. With a 4-1 home win over the Klopp team, Napoli still secured victory in the group. Ajax didn’t show any weaknesses with a 3-1 win at Glasgow Rangers, Florian Grillitsch was also substituted on for the Dutch team in the sixth game (87th). The Scots remained pointless with 2:22 goals.

Two-time Champions League finalist Atletico has been eliminated from Group B. Mehdi Taremi scored at home for Porto for the sixth time in four games (5th), and the Atletico defense also acted poorly in Stephen Eustaquio’s 2-0 lead (24th). Atletico’s goal was also scored by a Porto player, but Ivan Marcano’s own goal came at the end of injury time (90+5). Leverkusen against Club Brugge didn’t bring anything uplifting, but the Europa League did bring the disappointing Germans in the Bundesliga. Brugge had already been further ahead.

Bayern, on the other hand, were the first team to win six Champions League group wins for the third time, having previously done so in 2019 and 2021. ÖFB team player Marcel Sabitzer played through, and half Austrian Paul Wanner, who was not yet 17, also played. The goals were scored by Benjamin Pavard (32′) and Maxim Chopo-Moting (72′). Barcelona left world footballer Robert Lewandowski at home, but a B set managed to win against a hard-working Pilsen. Ferran Torres scored twice. Barca’s Europa League move was fixed.
