Group B: Griezmann in the taste for Atlético, Leverkusen surprised by Bruges

Diego Simeone’s troops almost got trapped by FC Porto in a match in which three goals were scored in injury time. While Hermoso (90 + 1) thought he had given Atlético a definitive advantage, Uribe equalized from the spot to 90 + 6. Late in the evening Griezmann, at the center of a standoff between his club and Barça and still as a replacement tonight, offered his team victory (2-1, 90 + 11) on a close-range header.

Group D: OM weighed down by a red, Frankfurt crushed at home

OM showed an attractive face for 45 minutes at Tottenham.

In the other group match, Sporting Portugal surprised Frankfurt. At home, the winners of the last Europa League sank by conceding three goals in the second half.
