UEFA Champions League: All records broken on match-day 5
The first half of UEFA Champions League match-day 5 brought to us some important results on the penultimate day of the group stage encounters. Real Madrid triumphed over AS Roma, while Juventus and Manchester United won their respective encounters. Meanwhile, Lyon, after defeating City in their first encounter, drew against the English champions last night. Here're all the records broken during the UCL encounters.
Real Madrid triumph 0-2 at Roma's home
Goals from Gareth Bale and Lucas Vazquez saw Real Madrid seal their position in the round of 16 with 12 points from five matches. Bale scored his 20th UCL goal in 58 matches. Vazquez's goal was assisted by Benzema, who registered his 100th Real Madrid assist by doing so. Real Madrid have won their last four matches against Roma without conceding a single goal.
Aguero's strike salvage a 2-2 draw for Manchester City
Aguero's goal saw him score in six consecutive UCL matches, second-longest to Cristiano Ronaldo's 12-match scoring streak in the competition. Since 2008-09, it is the first time Lyon have not suffered a single defeat in their first five UCL fixtures in a season. David Silva has nine UCL assists for City, more than any City player ever.
Juventus make their way to next round after 1-0 victory
A goal from Mario Mandzukic sealed Juventus' position in the next round of the tournament. The match saw Ronaldo registering his 100th UCL victory (157 matches), becoming the first footballer ever to do so. In their last four UCL seasons, Valencia have now exited thrice from the group stages. In six out of their last seven UCL encounters, Juventus have kept a clean sheet.
Manchester United win 1-0 via stoppage-time goal by Fellaini
Before Fellaini scored, 275 minutes had passed without United netting a UCL goal at Old Trafford, the longest period in the club's history. Lukaku played a part in the match for 26 minutes, where he had just nine touches on the ball. However, among them, one was the assist for Fellaini's goal. Fellaini's goal was the first stoppage-time UCL winner for United since 2007.
