Group A

Atlético 1-1 Bayern

The hosts knew victory would send them into the last 16 as runners-up to Bayern and the in-form João Félix gave them a deserved first-half lead by sweeping in Marcos Llorente’s low cross. That looked to be enough until substitute Thomas Müller was clipped by Felipe and the Bayern forward converted from the spot to leave Diego Simeone’s men needing a point at Salzburg on Matchday 6 to progress.
Key stat: Atlético have lost only one of their last 25 UEFA Champions League home games – they are unbeaten in their last 13 (W9 D4).
09/12: Salzburg vs Atlético, Bayern vs Lokomotiv

Lokomotiv Moskva 1-3 Salzburg

The Austrian champions got their first Group A win with a clinical display of finishing in Moscow, Mergim Berisha scoring twice in the first half to put them in control. Lokomotiv tried to rally after the restart and substitute Anton Miranchuk halved the deficit with a penalty in the 79th minute – only for Salzburg replacement Karim Adeyemi to skip through the home defence and fire in the clincher two minutes later.
Key stat: Salzburg have scored ten goals in their five group games at an average of two per match.

Group BShakhtar Donetsk 2-0 Real Madrid

Shakhtar completed the Group B double over Madrid with a clinical display of counterattacking in Kyiv. Marco Asensio hit a post early on as Madrid controlled the first half, but it was after the interval that Shakhtar's tactics came to the fore and substitutes Dentinho and Manor Solomon both scored on the break. Luís Castro's side are ahead of Madrid in the standings going into Matchday 6.
Key stat: Madrid have never failed to make it out of the group stage in 24 previous appearances.
09/12: Internazionale vs Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Madrid vs Mönchengladbach

Mönchengladbach 2-3 Internazionale

Inter kept alive their hopes of qualification alive thanks to a Romelu Lukaku double. Inter's talismanic striker was involved in the move that led to Matteo Darmian’s opener, but the dominant visitors were pegged back by Alassane Pléa’s header on the stroke of half-time. Lukaku slammed restored the visitors' lead and then tapped in Achraf Hakimi’s cross to make it 3-1. Pléa pulled one back and had another ruled out to ensure Group B will go to the wire.
Key stat: Both Lukaku (4) and Pléa (5) have scored their group stage goals in just two games this season.
09/12: Internazionale vs Shakhtar Donetsk, Real Madrid vs Mönchengladbach

Group CPorto 0-0 Man.City

Porto sealed qualification and City confirmed top spot in the group after a magnificent goalkeeping performance from Agustín Marchesín. Among a succession of superb saves, the Porto keeper denied Raheem Sterling early in the second half, then kept out a Ferran Torres overhead kick from point-blank range on his line to earn the hosts a point.
Key stat: City had not failed to score in the Champions League in 14 matches, last drawing a blank when they lost 1-0 at Tottenham in the first leg of their quarter-final tie in April 2019.
09/12: Olympiacos vs Porto, Man. City vs Marseille

Marseille 2-1 Olympiacos

A pair of Dimitri Payet penalties overturned a 1-0 deficit to help Marseille claim their first points in Group C. Though Olympiacos led at the interval through Mohamed Camara, the hosts found their way back into the game through Payet's two successful efforts from the spot.
Key stat: Marseille’s win ends a record-breaking run of 13 Champions League defeats in a row stretching back to 2012.?
09/12: Olympiacos vs Porto, Man. City vs Marseille

Group DLiverpool 1-0 Ajax

Liverpool secured top spot in Group D thanks to a neat finish from Curtis Jones. The teenager tapped into an empty net just before the hour mark, after visiting goalkeeper Andre Onana misjudged Neco Williams' cross. Ajax almost broke the deadlock themselves 90 seconds earlier, with David Neres striking a post. Jones and Roberto Firmino were also denied by the woodwork for the Reds.
Key stat: Curtis Jones (19 years & 306 days) became the third youngest Liverpool Champions League scorer, after David Ngog (19 years & 252 days) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (19 years & 10 days)?.
09/12: Ajax vs Atalanta, Midtjylland vs Liverpool

Atalanta 1-1 Midtjylland

Christian Romero’s 79th-minute header saved Atalanta as Midtjylland’s hopes of a first Champions League win were dashed. The game started with a twist as stand-in captain Alexander Scholz’s half-volley fired the Danes in front. An intense Midtjylland side pressed high, and their compact defensive unit contained Atalanta’s attacking threat for most of the match. However, a late lapse saw Romero glance in to ensure the spoils were shared.
Key stat: Atalanta have won just one of their last six home games in the Champions League group stage.
