Real Madrid 'leader' and Dortmund 'phenomenon' selected: Champions League team of the week

Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea, Sevilla, and Barcelona all secure passage to last-16 in Round 4

The fourth round of the Uefa Champions League group stage was completed this week as a handful of clubs booked their places in the knockout round.

In the early kick-offs in Group E on Tuesday, Chelsea and Sevilla both ensured their passage to the last-16 after respective 2-1 wins over Rennes and Krasnodar.

Later that evening, Group F saw history made when Erling Braut Haaland became the fastest player to reach 15 Champions League goals in Borussia Dortmund's 3-0 win against Club Brugge, while Lazio secured a similarly comfortable home win by defeating Zenit St Petersburg 3-1.

In Group G, Barcelona shrugged off the absence of Lionel Messi to crush Dynamo Kiev 4-0 and cruise into the last-16 after four straight wins. Juventus joined the Catalans in qualifying from the group with a late 2-1 victory over Ferencvaros.

Manchester United bounced back from their shock loss away to Istanbul Basaksehir by thrashing the Turkish champions 4-1 and Paris Saint-Germain secured a crucial 1-0 result against RB Leipzig to boost their qualification hopes.

On Wednesday, Atletico Madrid stumbled once again in Group A after being held to a goalless draw by Lokomotiv Moscow, but there were no such problems for reigning champions Bayern Munich who strolled into the knockout round with a 3-1 win over Red Bull Salzburg.

Borussia Monchengladbach held on to top spot in Group B with an emphatic 4-0 defeat of Shakhtar Donetsk, while Inter Milan's hopes of reaching the last-16 were dealt a major blow with a 2-0 home loss to Real Madrid.

Manchester City extended their perfect record to progress from Group C after a 1-0 win at Olympiakos, and Porto took a big step toward joining the Premier League side with a 2-0 victory at Marseille.

Group D became much more interesting this week when Liverpool fell to a shock 2-0 home defeat to Atalanta and Ajax beat FC Midtjylland 3-1. The Premier League champions still hold top spot but their lead has been reduced to two points, with Atalanta and Porto in hot pursuit.
