  • Bayern top Champions League Group B
  • Robert Lewandowski scores four
  • 100% record continues in Europe
10.0

Bayern Munich made it five wins out of five in Champions League Group B after a 6-0 humbling of Red Star. Robert Lewandowski was the star of the show, scoring the quickest four-goal haul in the history of the Champions League within 14 minutes in the second period. Leon Goretzka and Corentin Tolisso scored the other two with a cracking header and a neat finish either side of Lewandowski's barrage. As the scoreline suggests, they bossed the game from start to finish against what was an abject Red Star outfit. The Bavarians enjoyed 71% possession and sent a whopping 29 shots on goal, with 16 going on target. With the goalkeeper making so many saves, and with Red Star making 41 clearances, it is strange how the scoreline wasn't bigger.

  • Roma leapfrog Basaksehir into qualifying spot
  • Veretout, Kluivert, and Dzeko on the scoresheet
  • Lorenzo Pellegrini with two assists
8.7

On Thursday, Roma got the win they required over Basaksehir to move into the second qualifying spot of their Europa League group, at the expense of the Turkish outfit who dropped to third after losing 3-0. It proved to be a simple affair for the Giallorossi after Jordan Veretout opened the scoring with a penalty, as two more goals routinely came after a pair of excellent finishes from Justin Kluivert and Edin Dzeko, with Lorenzo Pellegrini the provider for the latter two. This came via 15 shots on goal compared to the six of the hosts, who surrendered 56% of possession. What won the game for Roma was their deadly finishing, as well as their battling mentality as they won more tackles and made more interceptions.

  • Forest move up to fourth in the table
  • Four different scorers at Loftus Road
  • Sammy Ameobi the man of the match
8.5

Nottingham Forest's recent run of good form, including the comfortable 4-0 away victory against QPR, has seen them propelled to fourth in the Championship table with a game in hand over the top three. They won at Loftus Road in style, scoring four goals through Tobias Figueiredo, Lewis Grabban, Joao Carvalho, and Alfa Semedo. He may have not got on the scoresheet, but Sammy Ameobi was Forest's best player, setting up two goals after some terrific work on the left wing. Sabri Lamouchi's side won despite having just 38% possession, which highlights their prowess on the counterattack. They made more tackles and clearances than the hosts.
