Bayern, PSG net five; United, Madrid win (Roundup)

Oct 24 2013, 7:04am CDT | by IANS

London, Oct 24 (IANS) It was a five-star performance from Germany's Bayern Munich and France's Paris St. Germain as they beat their respective opponents with similar 5-0 margin while England's Manchester United and Spain's Real Madrid had to fight hard for their victories.

London, Oct 24 — It was a five-star performance from Germany's Bayern Munich and France's Paris St. Germain as they beat their respective opponents with similar 5-0 margin while England's Manchester United and Spain's Real Madrid had to fight hard for their victories.

At Brussels Wednesday night, the crowd witnessed a Zlatan Ibrahimovic masterpiece. The Swedish striker scored four of his team's five goals in their 5-0 rout of Anderlecht.

Uruguay forward Edison Cavani was the other scorer for PSG. The French side have made it three wins out of three and head Group C with nine points. Olympiakos and Benfica are both on four points with the Greeks having a better goal difference.

French winger Franck Ribery starred in Bayern's 5-0 domination over Viktoria Plzen, scoring twice.

The German record champions had 35 efforts on goal to none of the Czech champions. David Alaba, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mari Goetze also got on the scoresheet.

Bayern are the outright leaders of Group D with nine points, followed by Manchester City, who beat CSKA Moscow 2-1 in Russia. Argentine striker Sergio Aguero scored twice to give his side a crucial win, which takes them to six points.

A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Real Madrid edge Italian champions Juventus 2-1 at home.

The Portuguese got the winning goal in the 29th minute after Giorgio Chiellini had wrestled Sergio Ramos to the ground.

Madrid are in the driving seat in Group B with nine points followed by Galatasaray on four and Juventus on two.

An own goal by Real Sociedad's Inigo Martinez was all that separated English champions Manchester United from the Spanish side.

The Red Devils, who are on seven points, lead Group A by just one point. Bayern Leverkusen's 4-0 shock win over Shakhtar Donetsk puts them in second place, leaving the Ukranians third on four points.

Red-Hot Mario Gotze Could Leave Franck Ribery in the Cold at Bayern Munich

Sep 28 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In football, the same logic that applies to good ideas also applies to match-winners. That is: Just as the best way to have a good idea is to have a lot of ideas, the best way to have an in-form match-winner is to have a lot of world-class stars. At any time, someone is bound to show up. The trouble is, on an individual level, that philosophy is a dangerous one: It means that a truly exceptional player could be merely ordinary in a packed squad. That was the problem for Mario Gotze ...
