Champions League: CSKA lose 1-0 in Germany

A goal by Draxler after 40 minutes was enough to give Wolfsburg the three points against an organized CSKA side...but the statistics speak for themselves. Ball possession was 59% to 41% in favor of the German side, which had 18 shots against CSKA's 7 (7 on target against 3, 6 off target against 2, 5 blocked against 2).The home side also had 5 corners, while CSKA had just one. However, CSKA soaked up the pressure and came through with few wounds. In Moscow things can be different. In the other game in Group B, PSV Eindhoven beat Manchester United 2-1

In the other games, Group A: Benzema got one and Cristiano Ronaldo a hat-trick in Real Madrid's comprehensive dismantling of FC Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine), 4-0. Di Maria and Cavani scored for PSG against Malmö. Group B: Depay scored for United before home side PSV equalized through Moreno (45+2) and Narsingh (57'). Group C:

Griezmann scored a brace for Atlético in the first half in Turkey against Galatasaray, a team which attacked more but inefficiently; in the other game Benfica won in Lisbon against Kazakhstan's first ever presence in the Champions League (Astana) with goals from Gaitán and Mitroglou in the second half. Group D: A bad night for the Premier League with both Manchester teams going down. Manchester City rule the roost at home with five wins from five games but in the Champions, the first game ended in a home defeat to Juve. The first goal came from City but was an own goal by Chiellini on 57', after which the visitors scored through Mandzukic and Morata. Sevilla wrapped up a great night for Spanish teams (three games, three wins, 9 goals scored, zero conceded) with a comprehensive trouncing of Borussia Mönchengladbach with two penalties (Gameiro, 47 and Banega, 66) and the third from Konoplyanka on 84'.
