Sixth day of infarct in the phase of groups of the UEFA Champions League. Although several clubs already were classified for the eighth of final of mathematical form from the past day and only remained dirimir in them which team would go to the UEFA Europe League, the true is that in groups like the B all was absolutely open, in a denouement that got angry -and a lot- to the fans of the Manchester United but that sure that it did not disappoint, in general lines, to the "fans" of the football in pure state. And it is that, in this sixth and last day of the phase of groups, the groups To, B, C and D remained definitively enclosed:
Group To: they Happened Real Madrid and PSG
In the Group To had few surprises, or rather any. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain already had certified the access to the eighth of final of the UEFA Champions League 2015-16 like first and second of group respectively, and the only emotion of the group rooted in knowing if it would be Shakhtar Donetsk or Malmö the one who would leave to play the UEFA Europe League. Finally, it could say that it classified for said competition the "less bad".
And it is that the Real Madrid vapuleó to the Malmö in the Bernabéu with a 8-0 historical, whereas the Shakhtar Donetsk fell by an acceptable 2-0 in the Park of The Princes. With a balance of goals of -7, the Ukrainians finished classifying for the Europe League in contrast with the -20 of balance of the Malmö, possibly one of the worst balances of all the history of the phase of groups.
Group B: they Happened Wolfsburg and PSV
The group that in first instance seemed that the Manchester United had to dominate to pleasure from the first day finish turning into an apple poisoned for the "network devils". And it is that the ones of Louis Go Gaal played in the field of the Wolfsburgo with everything absolutely in the air, fell defeated by an apurado but deserved 3-2 and, with the victory of the PSV to fault of four minutes for the end in front of the CSKA of Moscow (2-1), remained out of the eighth of the UEFA Champions League 2015-16 with 8 points, two less than the PSV and four less than the Wolfsburgo.
From now, the English will have to conform with an UEFA Europe League that surely it will know very to little to some fans "network devil" too very accustomed during the last years. Well, excepting the last polish. And it is that to the Manchester United of Go Gaal seems that still it is missing him a lot to go back to marvel as it did it until does not do too many years the one of Sir Alex Ferguson with players like Cristiano, Scholes, Giggs, Tévez and company.
Group C: they Happened Athletic and Benfica
Day without surprises in the Group C, where the Athletic of Madrid sobrepuso to his nightmares and, in the return to the Stadium Gives Luz -where lost the final of the Champions League 2013-14 against the Real Madrid-, won to the Benfica by an adjusted 1-2 that serves him to classify for the eighth of final like first of group, avoiding of this form to some dangerous rivals but with the risk to be able to confront to some "coconut" like Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus or can that Chelsea.
The case is that the ones of the "Cholo" Simeone achieved to classify for the eighth of final of the European competition and, in the another party of the group, the Galatasaray showed his more conservative side for empatar with 1-1 in his own field and access of this form to the UEFA Europe League, where will try to do something more notable that in the Champions, of which already is deleted beside a FC Astana that sacked of his first participation in Champions with 4 points.
Group D: they Happened Manchester City and Juventus
In the Group D, the returns changed in the sixth and last day. Although the Juventus of Turín had been the team leader during the big majority of the days, with the Seville like last qualifier, finally a victory of the Manchester City in the Etihad Stadium against the Borussia M'Gladbach (4-2) -with traced back included-, joined to a valuable triumph sevillista in the Sánchez Pizjuán in front of the Juventus (1-0) -that still had not lost in this edition- gave to the Andalusians the opportunity to remain third and return to the competition that have won during the two last seasons, the UEFA Europe League.
Manchester City and Juventus already are classified for the eighth of final like first and second of group, respectively. In this coyuntura and with the FC Barcelona classified in first position already of the Group And... Who know if it will be able to repeat the final of the past edition of the Champions League in the round of eighth of final, with a possible crossing Barça-Juventus. The morbo is served.
