Bayern advance to Champions League last-16

London: After the Champions League paused to pay tribute to Diego Maradona, defending champions Bayern Munich and Manchester City won to advance to the knockout rounds. A minute’s silence was observed by players before each of the eight games, which were all played in empty stadiums because of the coronavirus pandemic. Bayern’s 3-1 win over Salzburg included Robert Lewandowski’s 71st Champions League goal, tied for third all-time with Real Madrid great Raul. City’s 1-0 win at Olympiakos means six elite teams are already into the last-16 with two rounds of the group stage still to play. Barcelona, Juventus, Chelsea and Sevilla advanced on Tuesday. Liverpool wasted the chance to join them, as the 2019 champions conceded their first goals in this season’s competition to lose 2-0 at home against Atalanta. Eden Hazard’s seventh-minute penalty in a 2-0 win at Inter Milan helped ensure Real Madrid is back on track after a shaky start to the campaign. Inter is last in group B and facing elimination. Ajax defeated Midtjylland 3-1. PTI
