The Scottish champion got goals from Leigh Griffiths, Scott Sinclair, and an own-goal by Kara Mbodji, and next travels to face Bayern. "When they have space to show their qualities, they are difficult to control". Robert Lewandowski's recent statements about the status of the club only fed into this feeling of flatness, but a lot of that is down to Carlo Ancelotti's day-to-day coaching as much as Bayern's grander decisions.

Neymar cut inside through a sea of legs and delivered a perfect assist on the right of the box for the unmarked Alves, who fired home from a tight angle.
Kylian Mbappé. Smuggler decisive for Uruguay (31st), breaker of kidneys germans on goal from Neymar (63rd), it is he who has shown the most incisive in her races, the most correct technically and more collective. With only 37 % of the possession, the Parisians were able to kill the game as of the great.

"He had a good life in Barcelona, playing with a good team", Okocha says.
