If yesterday we told the fall of Manchester City, today I have the fall of Chelsea , another English team. The defending champions are the stars of the Champions League on Wednesday as they left without the chance to defend his title in the group stage. Although at least remain as consolation to play Europe League, which Mancini cannot say.
The Chelsea star has been negative, and Juventus, Celtic or Galatasaray have seen the good side of the coin. With regard to the Spanish, Valencia played first place but Bayern gave no option so it will be second, while Barcelona played a game that was not played at all, and in which Leo Messi has given a scare important.
And now, on to the last review of the groups E to H.
Group E: Chelsea falls eliminated
The first victory of Rafa Benitez as manager of Chelsea will be a bittersweet memory for the Spanish coach. And is that despite thrashing and how the modest Nordsjaelland Danish (6-1 final doublet Fernando Torres), with Juventus going ahead having won in Ukraine. At the end there was no agreement or biscotto or anything, because Juventus won the match against Shakhtar Donetsk and add 3 points that lift to the first position and the Ukrainians left second. And Chelsea seeks solace in the Europe League.
Group F: Bayern secures its first position
In Group F only remained to decide who would be first and who would be second between Bayern Munich and Valencia. In the end no change as the two teams got the same result. Valencia won 0-2 at home of Lille and needed the BATE Borisov will scratch at least a draw in Munich, but the Belarusian team, they can already start thinking about playing the Europe League, ended Bayern thrashed for even scored three of the four goals he did to BATE playing with a player less for the expulsion of Boateng.
Group G: Celtic will be in second round
The group G leaves the Glasgow Celtic in the second round. The Scots have become strong in their field and earned today to Spartak Moscow 2-1. This victory forced the Benfica to get more than a draw at Camp Nou before a Barcelona with many substitutes, but the score did not move even though the Portuguese team enjoyed several times for it. So Barca passes knockout accompanied Celtic and Benfica Europa League will play in a group that started as theoretical runner.
Group H: Cluj slashing the miracle but fails
The modest Cluj in Romania today has written a brilliant page in its history by winning by the minimum none other than Manchester United at Old Trafford. Yet the victory not worth anything but as a passport to the Europa League, then finally Galatasaray will be the runner of this group. For several minutes, the Romanians brushed the miracle as the Sporting Braga won the match, but the Turkish team rallied in the second half with goals from Burak Yilmaz and Aydin Yilmaz and finally be in the knockout stages.
