Bayern Munich was patient to win on home soil against Galatasaray 2-1, with a double from the inevitable Harry Kane, a new success synonymous with qualification for the round of 16 of the Champions League.
Munich's two impressive series therefore continue: Bayern secured its 17th consecutive victory in the C1 group stage on Wednesday evening, a 38th meeting in a row without losing at this stage of the premier competition of European football.
With 12 points out of 12 possible, Thomas Tuchel's men are guaranteed to finish in first place in the group, synonymous with home advantage for the eighth return of the C1.
They will be able to play against Copenhagen at the end of November and at Old Trafford against Manchester United in mid-December.
Reduced to ten, Manchester United experienced a nightmare evening by losing 4-3 in Copenhagen on Wednesday after leading 2-0 and 3-2, on the 4th day of the Champions League.
A double from Rasmus Hojlund (3rd, 28th) had put the Red Devils perfectly on track, but the exclusion in the 41st minute of Marcus Rashford was immediately sanctioned by a goal from Mohamed Elyounoussi (45th), before Diogo Gonçalves equalizes from the penalty spot (45 9). Bruno Fernandes gave MU the lead again from the penalty spot (69th), but goals from Lukas Lerager (83rd) then Roony Bardghji (87th) gave Copenhagen the victory.
Inter Milan and Real Sociedad are guaranteed to participate in the round of 16 of the Champions League, after their victories respectively against Salzburg (1-0) and Benfica (3-1) on Wednesday.
The penalty scored in Salzburg by Lautaro Martinez in the 85th minute sealed the fate of Group D: with ten points each, Inter and Real Sociedad, victorious earlier in the evening at home to Benfica, can no longer be dislodged from the first two places.
Dominant and efficient, Real Madrid ensured their qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League on Wednesday by winning 3-0 at the Santiago-Bernabeu against Braga thanks in particular to a goal and an assist from Vinicius.
With 12 points out of 12, the Madrilenians widen the gap at the top of Group C and are now five lengths ahead of Naples, second after their draw against Union Berlin (1-1).
Arsenal took a giant step towards the knockout stages of the Champions League thanks to their walk on Wednesday against Sevilla FC (2-0), completely harmless and brought down by Bukayo Saka, passer and scorer.
The Gunners did not need their captain Martin Odegaard to withdraw, nor to deploy disproportionate efforts to maintain the lead of Group B. The nine points taken in four matches almost guarantee them the ticket for the knockout phase, before the last two meetings.
