Could be some amazing knockout ties here. There’s obviously still one more round of fixtures remaining, but that Champions League round of 16 draw takes place on Monday 18 December.
We were amazing
You’re not wrong, Gabriel.
Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has been speaking with TNT Sports, and actually learned that Arsenal had qualified as winners.
He said: “We were amazing. Everyone was focused. We controlled the game. They tried to come in the second half. At the end everyone played amazing. The team performance was top. We have to keep going.
“Playing at home, we know our support is amazing. They push us. We want to win the game and qualify. Congratulations to the whole team.
“We didn’t concede a goal. We kept a clean sheet and then we scored in the last minutes.
“I watch the Champions League a lot at home. I love football. The Champions League is special, like the Premier League. I already won the Premier League, I want to win here, but I want to win the Champions League as well.”
A few surprise results in here tonight.
FC Copenhagen getting a point at Bayern Munich means Manchester United have to beat the Bundesliga champions at Old Trafford and hope the other match in Group A is drawn to remain in the competition.
- Arsenal 6-0 Lens
- Bayern Munich 0-0 Copenhagen
- Benfica 3-3 Inter Milan
- Braga 1-1 Union Berlin
- Real Madrid 4-2 Napoli
- Real Sociedad 0-0 Salzburg
Take a look and enjoy that, Arsenal fans.
The Gunners will finish top of Group B as the seeded side whatever happens in their trip to PSV Eindhoven. The Dutch outfit can also celebrate, they advance at the expense of Lens and Sevilla.
That goal difference didn’t half take a boost tonight.
