UEFA Champions League 2018-19: All records broken on match-day 6
The last day of the ongoing Champions League campaign's group stage is underway, and some of the results have been truly exciting. While Liverpool edged past Napoli into the next round, Tottenham drew with Barcelona to squeeze into the same. Tonight's results will give a complete picture of the teams which will be competing in the next round. Here're records broken from last night.
Tottenham held Barcelona to a 1-1 draw
Ousmane Dembele had scored for Barcelona in the 7th minute, but Lucas Moura equalized in the 85th minute to help Spurs qualify to the next round. Barcelona are without a single loss in their last 29 UCL home matches, winning 26 and drawing three. Barcelona have lost just one European home match against English sides since 1976-77, losing 1-2 against Liverpool in 2007.
Inter Milan fail to make it to the next round
This was Inter's first UCL season in six years, but drawing 1-1 with PSV Eindhoven saw their campaign cut short. This is the second time in their last 12 UCL seasons that Inter didn't qualify for the round of 16, last time being 2003-04. PSV's 2018-19 UCL campaign was the first time they did not keep a single clean sheet since 1999-00.
Liverpool win 1-0 against Napoli, qualify to round of 16
Though they missed a number of sitters, Liverpool managed to hold on to their 1-0 lead at Anfield against Napoli to qualify to the next round. Liverpool have remained without a single loss in 19 successive European fixtures at home, last losing to Real Madrid in 2014. In their last eight UCL home matches, Liverpool have kept clean sheets on six occasions.
PSG proved too hot for Red Star to handle
PSG's blistering attack saw them dismantle Red Star Belgrade 4-1, with goals from Cavani, Neymar, Mbappe, and Marquinhos. Mbappe has been involved in 14 goals in his 12 UCL group stage matches for PSG (seven goals, seven assists). PSG have scored 70 goals this season all over, and are followed by Manchester City with 66. This was Cavani's 50th UCL match for PSG.
