ZENEVA – Manchester's night in the Champions League, as United surprised Juventus with late goals and the City sent Shahter Donetsk on Wednesday.
Cristiano Ronaldo's brilliant goal – a volley from a long passage that fell on his way over his right shoulder – set Juventus a victory against his former club with a few minutes to play in Turin.
Man United scored through a free kick of Juan Mata and entered his own goal from the cross which turned down two defending players on the line for a 2-1 win. One boss Jose Mourinho, former Inter coach, confirmed to domestic fans after the final whistle by hitting his right hand on the ear and facing some Juve players.
Manchester City's 6-0 win over Shahter will be remembered for the comic penalty shootout awarded to Raheem Sterling when he shot a turkey in an unsuccessful attempt to shoot.
Their victories were well placed by Manchester derby in the Premier League on Sunday.
Real Madrid, Bayern Munchen and Roma have also defeated yet another team that did not join Barcelona, who came into the quarter-finals on Tuesday after four rounds of group games.
Madrid's triple defending champion scored four times in Victoria Plzen four times in the first half before finishing a 5-0 defeat to Interim coach Santiago Solari.
Robert Levandovski scored both goals in a routine victory of 2-0 over AEK Athens, who lost four.
Here's a look at the action on Wednesday:
The gratitude and power of Ronaldo's 65-minute finish, which links to the left pass from Leonardo Bonucci, would be a dignified way for Juventus to extend the last remaining 100 percent record.
The Italian champion struck twice in the wood industry and missed a chance to seal the game before United again found a resounding response that seemed to have evaded Mourinho's team until recently.
Mata dropped his shot on the Juve wall in 86th place, and a free-kick from the left wing in 90th minute spilled with Bonucci and then Alec Sandro.
Juve still leads the H group for two points from Man United, and two more points in Valencia that won the Ioung Bois 3-1. United can advance by defeating Young Boys at home on November 27th.
Man Man's solid week in the field does not affect the unimpeded progress on it.
The club seriously criticized the report by the German Der Spiegel magazine "Football Leaks". The city is shown in internal club documents and e-mails as ruthlessly guided and allegedly willing to cheat UEFA to avoid the possibility of banning the Champions League due to overcompensation.
City skating Six goals in a row means club officials expect to return to the UEFA headquarters in Switzerland on December 17 for the draw of the 16th round.
After opening goalkeeper David Silva, the second City was a gift from a UEFA referee. Raheem Sterling deserved a penalty after he left the left post.
"I just hit the floor," Sterling said. "I did not want you to fall, it was an absolute concern in my name."
Gabriel Jesus then took the place, and again in the second half, then sealed his het trick at the time of the stop.
The city moved three points ahead of Lyon in group F after the French team lost a two-year result in a 2-2 draw against Hoffenheim. The Germans witnessed 10 men when Pavel Kaderabek entered the stopping time.
MADRID MOVES ON
Real Madrid and the Roma have won in Eastern Europe to stay at Group G.
Madrid survived an early frightening situation when Czech champion Viktoria Plzen hit the bar, but after 20 minutes he scored four goals. Karim Benzema scored twice, Casemiro and Gareth Bale also scored goals. Toni Kroos scored in the second half for Madrid.
Now there are three real victories in all competitions for Madrid because coach Julen Lopetegui has been fired and Solari has taken over.
In the first half, Roma won 2-1 in CSKA Moscow to move five points from the Russian side.
Lorenzo Pellegrini scored a 59th place, shortly after CSKA defended the Icelandic defender Hordur Magnusson.
Group E has a feeling from the seventies with Bayern in Munich and Ajax that looks good to progress. The teams were from 1971 to # 76. Won the tricks of the European Cup title.
Bayern take advantage of two points over Ajax, who won 1-1 in Benfica, both of whom could advance before they meet in Amsterdam on December 12th.
Ajax is next to Athens to play AEK, which is one of only two team points with team D Lokomotiv Moscow.
