Dortmund booked their place in the knockout stages but defeat by Paris means it will go down to the wire for Manchester United, while Olivier Giroud struck four and İrfan Can Kahveci scored a glorious hat-trick … and lost.
Click on any scoreline to look back at all the action as it happened. Match highlights are available from midnight where you are.
Olivier Giroud scored four, including three in the second half, as Chelsea made sure they will top Group E with an emphatic victory in Spain. The Frenchman’s opener after seven minutes set a tone, with the goals that followed coming as the away side’s dominance grew. The result gave Sevilla a first home defeat in 15 UEFA competition fixtures.
Key stat: Giroud is the oldest player in UEFA Champions League history to score a hat-trick and the oldest to do it in the European Cup since Real Madrid’s Ferenc Puskás in September 1965.
The Russian side secured third place in Group E by edging out their fellow UEFA Champions League debutants. Marcus Berg scored the only goal midway through the second half, latching on to a long Aleksandr Martynovich ball over the top and outmuscling Damien Da Silva before finishing assuredly.
Key stat: Krasnodar are the 129th team to win a game in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
Dortmund were without talisman Erling Braut Haaland but nevertheless booked their spot in the knockout stages. Raphaël Guerreiro prodded in just before the break, but in the second half the hosts were indebted to keeper Roman Bürki who superbly denied Ciro Immobile twice before the ex-BVB striker converted from the spot to take his side within a point of the last 16.
Key stat: Lazio have now gone 16 matches (spread over 17 years) since their last UEFA Champions League clean sheet away from home.
Club Brugge will reach the knockout stages if they win on Matchday 6 after easing to their biggest ever UEFA Champions League win, consigning Zenit to last spot in Group F. Charles De Ketelaere hit an emphatic first-half opener before Hans Vanaken’s penalty after the break and Noa Lang’s composed finish.
Key stat: The Belgian side ended a run of 12 home matches in the UEFA Champions League group stage without a win (D5 L7).
Federico Chiesa scored and had a hand in the other two as Juventus kept up the pressure on Group G leaders Barcelona ahead of their Matchday 6 meeting. The former Fiorentina man opened his Bianconeri account with a powerful header midway through the first half before providing the cross that Cristiano Ronaldo eventually turned in just before the hour. Álvaro Morata coolly bagged his sixth of this UEFA Champions League campaign nine minutes later.
Key stat: Ronaldo’s goal was the 750th of his career for club and country combined.
Barcelona kept intact the group stage’s only remaining perfect record with a comfortable win in Budapest. Ronald Koeman’s team’s turbo-charged opening half hour did the damage, with Antoine Griezmann’s impudent back-heel, Martin Braithwaite’s close-range finish and Ousmane Dembélé’s penalty ensuring they passed their latest test with flying colours and with time to spare.
Key stat: Having scored just one goal in his first 17 Barcelona appearances in all competitions, Braithwaite now has four in his last three outings.
Paris moved alongside United and Leipzig on nine points in a tantalising group with victory at Old Trafford. Neymar gave the visitors an early lead but the hosts levelled through Marcus Rashford’s deflected strike before the game turned in two second-half minutes. Marquinhos stabbed Paris in front and Fred’s dismissal moments later hampered any hopes of a second comeback for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s men. Neymar wrapped up the points in added time.
Key stat: United had conceded just two goals in their last seven home games in Europe before Wednesday – Paris bettered that total in 90 minutes.
The match of the night came in Istanbul as Alexander Sørloth’s added-time winner ensured İrfan Can Kahveci’s hat-trick of brilliant left-footed strikes proved in vain. Yussuf Poulsen, Nordi Mukiele and Dani Olmo struck for the visitors and, though Başakşehir recovered from 2-0 and 3-1 down, Sørloth’s late clincher ended the Turkish side’s European ambitions.
Key stat: İrfan is only the third player in UEFA Champions League history to score a hat-trick but still lose after Ronaldo (Real Madrid vs Man. United, 2003) and Gareth Bale (Tottenham vs Inter, 2010).
The last fixtures in all these groups will take place on Tuesday 8 December.
