Roger Schmidts Benfica has once again taken a big run against Paris Saint-Germains star ensemble. Both teams are heading for a spot in the eighth Champions League finals. Chelsea won at AC Milan, after it quickly faced ten men.
Group HParis Saint-Germain – Benfica 1-1Paris Saint-Germain was mainly about Kylian Mbappes alleged desire to leave on Tuesday, but the unrest seemed to have no effect on the attacker. He was allowed to dock five minutes before the break from eleven meters after a foul against Juan Bernat and did not fail: 1-0. Nevertheless, the French star formation, which was still missing Lionel Messi with an injury, had their hands full with Benfica again.
GOAL! A departure or not, Kylian Mbappé can still take this penalty and shoots it in convincingly. An injured Lionel Messi also sees that things are good. #UCL #PSGBEN pic.twitter.com/cbeMHxHrsU

Roger Schmidts team, with Fredrik Aursnes in the base, certainly did not retreat and got pay to work after an hour. Like PSG, Benfica scored out of a penalty. Rafa Silva had been hit and João Mário hit the goal: 1-1, so the Portuguese were able to repeat the trick a week ago. In the pool, PSG and Benfica now have eight points each, five more than Juventus and Maccabi Haifa.
Group EAC Milan – Chelsea 0-2Chelsea won against AC Milan for the second time in a week. The Blues got into the saddle in San Siro after seventeen minutes. Of all, Fikayo Tomori, former Chelsea player, was severely punished with a red card after a duel with Mason Mount. Jorginho also used the penalty kick. With one less man, Milan became surprisingly dangerous, but a goal by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang threw the game into the end after just 34 minutes. In the second half, Chelsea played the game expertly, although Sergiño Dest still got a big chance.

Dinamo Zagreb – Red Bull Salzburg 1-1Red Bull Salzburg took the best chance against Dinamo Zagreb at his first chance. Nicolas Seiwald broke the ban after twelve minutes, but the home teams response soon followed. Robert Ljubicic shot from a distance. In the second half, the Austrians posed the most danger. Luka Sucic hit the bar, but there was no more scoring.
As a result, the tension remains high in group E. Chelsea leads with seven points. Salzburg follows with six points, but Milan and Zagreb are also still in the race with four points each.
