By the time the top-of-the-table clash in Group B of the Champions League group stage kicked off, the names of the teams through to the last 16 of the competition were already known. First and second respectively, Real Sociedad and Inter Milan were pitted against each other, with first place at stake. In the end, it was the Spanish club who managed to stay ahead (0-0). In the other match, Benfica clinched their place in the Europa League with a 1-3 away win over RB Salzburg.

Not much to look forward to in this match between Inter and La Liga. In the final moments of the game, Martinez shot just over the Spanish goal (90th+5). The draw was therefore in Real Sociedad’s favour.

Di Maria creates a crazy scenario

In Group B, it was Salzburg who really put on a show. Third at kick-off, the Austrian club started as favourites against a Benfica side that had been adrift so far in its European campaign, and which it had beaten 0-2 away from home on September 20. However, the Lisbon side had clearly not given up, and believed they could do it. hien. And the final Portuguese goal came in stoppage time through Cabral (1-3, 90th+2), a goal that brought Benfica level on points (4) in the standings, but also allowed the Lisbon giants to steal third place from Salzburg thanks to this ultimate goal in the direct duel between the two teams. It was a feat that Di Maria and his team-mates celebrated in style, while their opponents could hardly believe their luck.
