Posted : 13 December 2023

Fresh from winning the African Player of the Year Award, Victor Osimhen played a crucial role in Napoli's 2-0 victory over SC Braga on Tuesday evening.

Napoli gained an early advantage with a humorous own goal just nine minutes into the match. Osimhen's unconventional goal in the 33rd minute secured Napoli's place in the Champions League Round of 16, finishing as runners-up to Group C winners Real Madrid.

Real Madrid continued their strong form with a thrilling 3-2 comeback win against Union Berlin, completing a flawless six-win record in the group stage, a feat not achieved since their 2017-18 Champions League triumph.

Manchester United suffered a painful setback, losing 1-0 to Bayern Munich at Old Trafford. Kingsley Coman's goal made United the first Premier League team to finish at the bottom of their Champions League group twice.

In contrast, FC Copenhagen secured a spot in the Round of 16 alongside Bayern Munich with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Galatasaray.

Despite a 1-1 draw against PSV, Arsenal claimed the top spot in Group B. Lens defeated Sevilla 2-1 in the other group fixture.

Inter Milan relinquished the top spot in their group after a goalless draw against Real Sociedad. Although both teams had already secured their place in the Champions League knockout stage, it was the Spanish club that finished as group winners.

As of Tuesday night, 14 of the 16 teams set for the knockout phase have secured their berths, leaving only two slots to be contested on the final day of group stage action on Wednesday.
