CHAMPIONS LEAGUE RESULTS | ATLETICO MADRID SAYS GOODBYE | FC BARCELONA WINS

UEFA Champions League Group games tonight with two of the four Spanish Clubs down for action. Here is a brief summary of events, final results & goalscorers.

Chelsea vs At Madrid 2017

A "miracle" was needed if Atletico de Madrid was to qualify for the next phase of Champions League. One, the Spanish Club needed a victory against Chelsea FC, & two a draw or a loss by AC Roma against Qarabag. Neither occured. 

The final result of a 1 - 1 draw knocked out Atletico from Champions League & put them into the Europa League. As mentioned,  a "miracle" was needed. 

The Spanish Club tried their best to find the victory with a SAUL goal header in the 56th min & multiple goal savers from Atletico goalkeeper Oblak, who was outstanding. However, Chelsea drew in the 75th with a Hazard play that Atletico defender Savic made into an own goal. 

AC Roma won their match 1 - 0 against Qarabag

Bye Atletico!

FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona had their participation in the next stage of Champions League assured & left Messi on the bench. In the end FC Barcelona 2 - Sporting Portugal 2. With the "two goals" from PACO ALCACER in the 59th min & in the 90+ min of the match (own goal Mathieu).

Relatively comfortable match for Barça at "half pace" with moments going to Sporting with some chances that were solved by the local defence & Barça goalie Cillessen.

Tomorrow Spanish Football Clubs Real Madrid & Sevilla FC are scheduled for their Group matches
