Guido Burgstaller took the early 1-0 lead (4.) in Schalke 04’s 2-0 (1:0) home win over Turkish champions Galatasaray Istanbul and gave the pass to 2-0 (57.). The other two Schlager games of the evening brought no winner.
Belgrade, Monaco – Austria’s football team striker Guido Burgstaller scored his first Champions League goal. The Carinthian provided the early 1-0 lead (4.) in Schalke 04’s 2-0 (1:0) home win against the Turkish champion Galatasaray Istanbul and gave the pass to 2:0 (57.). Borussia Dortmund, on the other hand, conceded their first loss of the season with a 2-0 lead at Atletico Madrid.
The other two Schlager games of the evening brought no winner. Inter Milan and Barcelona as well as Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain separated 1:1, but “Barca” was the first club to make it to the round of 16, despite losing their first points in the fourth King’s Class match.
Burgstaller made use of a mistake made by goalkeeper Fernando Muslera in the initial phase in Gelsenkirchen. Uruguay’s teamkeeper intervened laterally at the edge of the penalty area, but slipped out of the sixteen and had to skip the ball again. Burgstaller reacted with lightning speed and shot the ball from an extremely sharp angle and 17 meters perfectly into the short corner. Mark Uth increased after the break after a counter and pass from Burgstaller to 2:0.
At Schalke, ÖFB team player Alessandro Schöpf was also in the starting eleven and also played through. After a counter and pass from Burgstaller, the Tyrolean had missed his first chance to win 2:0 (27./held).
In the parallel match the unbeaten leader Porto did not even need 120 seconds to lead Hector Herrera in the 4:1 home win over Lok Moscow. Moussa Marega (43.) increased to 2:0 just before the break. Although Lok managed the following goal by Jefferson Farfan (59.), Jesus Corona (67.) restored the old two-goal gap a little later. Otavinho (93.) scored to the final score. Porto now holds ten points and is two points ahead of Schalke.
At the Group A summit, Atletico Madrid returned the favor for the 4-0 debacle at Borussia Dortmund and scored a deserved 2-0 home win over the German leader. Saul Niguez scored 1-0 for the hosts, whose stadium will also host the premier class final on 1 June 2019. Antoine Griezmann (80) was responsible for the final score. Atletico thus caught up with BVB on points (both 9). For Dortmund, the first bankruptcy under the Swiss coach Lucien Favre was after 15 undefeated compulsory games.
Bruges had already celebrated a clear 4:0 (3:0) victory in Monaco two hours earlier in this pool’s late duel. The match was decided early after less than 25 minutes after goals from Hans Vanaken (12th, 17th/Foulelfer) and Wesley (24th). Ruud Vormer (85th) put the finishing touch and made the highest European Cup defeat of the Monegasques perfect.
Monaco have thus been without a win since the Ligue 1 opening round on 11 August, when the runner-up had celebrated a 3-1 victory in Nantes. This was followed by 14 compulsory games, in which only five draws were enough. Monaco are therefore currently only penultimate in Ligue 1.

Barcelona again competed in Milan without superstar Lionel Messi. Argentina’s five-time world footballer, who last trained with the team after breaking the spoke head in his right arm, watched the match from the stands and saw his team dominate the match but take the lead late through Malcolm (83). But Mauro Icardi took the first significant Inter-Chance after the break just a few minutes later to 1-1 (87th).
In the other match of Group B, Tottenham Hotspur kept his chance for advancement with a 2-1 home win over PSV Eindhoven. The visitors took an early lead through Luuk De Jong (2.). A goal from Harry Kane (78th) and an own goal from substitute Australian Trent Sainsbury (89th) brought the Spurs the deserved success.
Liverpool suffered an embarrassing 0-2 (0-2) defeat at Red Star Belgrade, but retained the lead in Group C as Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain separated 1-1 (0-1). Milan Pavkov was the match winner for the Serbian champion, who had eliminated Red Bull Salzburg in Austria’s play-off, with his double pack (22nd header to corner, 29th long shot). It was the first Champions League victory for Roter Stern.
In Naples, Juan Bernat (45.+2) brought the guests from Paris into the lead after Kylian Mbappe’s pass just before the break. The equalizer resulted from a controversial penalty shot by Lorenzo Insigne (62nd).
