Heavy hitters Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich nabbed berths in the next round with one-goal wins.

Ludogorets Razgrad 2-3 ArsenalRECAP

Goals in the 11th and 15th minutes gave the Bulgarians a 2-0 lead in Sofia, but Arsenal showed its road mettle by battling back for the win. Mesut Ozil assisted the first goal and then scored off a stunning dribble in the 88th minute to give the Gunners the win (Olivier Giroud netted the other goal, his third in four days).

Atletico Madrid 2-1 Rostov

Antoine Griezmann’s brace was enough, though Atleti left it late for the winner. Then again, that first goal is worth its weight in gold.

Manchester City 3-1 Barcelona — RECAP

When Raheem Sterling was booked for diving instead of awarded a PK, only to watch Lionel Messi give Barcelona a lead moments later, it seemed like it may not be Manchester City’s night.

Boy, was that off base.

Ilkay Gundogan scored a pair of goals and Kevin De Bruyne buried a free kick as Man City posted its best European win under Pep Guardiola with a 3-1 win that brings it within two points of Barca in Group C.

Borussia Monchengladbach 1-1 Celtic

Celtic still needs a miracle to stay alive in Europe, but Moussa Dembele‘s late penalty keeps the Scots’ hope of third place behind Man City and Barcelona alive. Lars Stindl scored for ‘Gladbach, which has two more points than Celtic’s pair.
