Things are Tough

The masters of the Champions league have found themselves between a rock and a hard place in the champions league progression.

The 13 times Champions found themselves in an unusual position when they were scored twice by Shakhtar Donetsk in a match that they dominated all round other than scoring. The visitors did not convert any of their chances to a goal.

Shakhtar attack was orchestrated by Dentinho’s goal in the 57th minute and Manor Solomon who struck in the 82nd minute to give the home side a win. Real Madrid are on 7 points same with Shakhtar after the match. This implies that Real Madrid need at least a draw to proceed to the round of 16 subject to the result of the other match in the tough group B between Inter Milan and Shakhtar Donetsk.

Borussia Moenchengladbach were stunned at home by Inter Milan who were determined to get the away win. Their two goal from Alassane Plea plus a third one which was disallowed by VAR as offside could not give them a win against the Italian side. Inter opened the scoring sheet with a goal from Matteo Darmian in the 17th minute with two additional goals from Romelu Lukaku that gave them the 3 points.

Inter are 4th on the table with 5 points and diminished hope of proceeding to the round of 16 in a group that is lead by Borussia Moenchengladbach with 8 points. Borussia Moenchengladbach has a higher chance of proceeding if Shakhtar Donetsk doesn’t win against inter Milan. The final group matches will determine who goes to the round of 16 in the group.
