Wayne Rooney Powers Man U Through

Wayne Rooney might not have been credited with scoring any of Manchester United's first four goals against Bayer Leverkusen in Wednesday's 5-0 win, but his fingerprints were all over them.

In the 22nd minute, he got things started with this stellar cross to set up an easy goal for Antonio Valencia:

Less than 10 minutes later, he followed up by striking a long free kick that Bayer Leverkusen defender Emir Spahic headed into his own goal.

Rooney continued to be a force in the second half. His shot led to a deflection goal for Jonny Evans in the 65th minute, and he set up Chris Smalling for a wide-open score in the 77th.

Manchester United (11 points) now leads Shakhtar Donetsk (eight points) in Group A by three points with one match to play. As a result, United is guaranteed at least a share of first place.

 

Real Madrid Advances with 10-Man Team

Sergio Ramos was sent off with a red card 26 minutes into Wednesday's match against Galatasaray, but that didn't stop Real Madrid from claiming a dominant 4-1 victory.

Gareth Bale got things started with this scintillating free kick in the 37th minute:

Galatasaray responded with a quick goal of its own by Umut Bulut, but Real Madrid ran away in the second half with goals by Alvaro Arbeloa (51'), Angel di Maria (63') and Isco (80').

Group B winners Real Madrid (13 points) are now seven points clear of Galatasary (six), which needs to beat Juventus in two weeks in order to qualify for the round of 16.

 

Edinson Cavani's Late Goal Propels PSG

Like Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain qualified for the knockout rounds despite losing a player to a red card. Shortly into the second half in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over Olympiacos, PSG midfielder Marco Verratti was dismissed.

At that point, PSG had 1-0 lead thanks to an early goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the seventh minute. Olympiacos would tie things up in the 80th minute, but Edinson Cavani dashed past the opposition's defense and knocked through the game-winner near the end of regulation.

PSG (13 points) clinched Group C with the late victory, while Olympiacos (seven) still has a chance to qualify for the next round with a win over Anderlecht.
