    Tuesday’s review & highlights

    Robert Lewandowski scored four goals in the space of 14 second-half minutes as Bayern Munich thrashed Red Star Belgrade 6-0 to win Champions League Group B.

    Leon Goretzka’s first goal in the competition gave Bayern a 14th-minute lead before Lewandowski took over.

    The prolific Poland striker, who saw a first-half effort disallowed, scored four times between the 53rd and 67th minutes to take his season’s tally for club and country to 31.

    The 14 minutes and 31 seconds it took him to score all four of his goals was the quickest quadruple in Champions League history.

    Corentin Tolisso scored in the 89th minute to complete the rout.

    Also in Group B, Tottenham produced a remarkable comeback in Jose Mourinho’s first home game in charge to beat Olympiakos 4-2 and join Bayern the last 16.

    Youssef El Arabi and Ruben Semedo struck inside the opening 19 minutes to put the Greek visitors in control.

    But Dele Alli replied just before the break and Harry Kane grabbed a second-half brace before Serge Aurier added the goal of the night.

    Kane’s double sent him into the record books as he is now the fastest player to score 20 Champions League goals, only needing 24 games.

    Paris St Germain secured top spot in Group A after recovering from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 at Real Madrid, who also secured their last-16 qualification.

    Karim Benzema, on his 100th Champions League start, put Real in command with goals after 17 and 79 minutes.

    PSG were denied a penalty and Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois escaped a red card after VAR recognised a foul in the build-up.

    But Kylian Mbappe (81) and Pablo Sarabia (83) scored to level things up before Real substitute Gareth Bale struck a post in added time.

    Manchester City qualified for the knockout stage for a seventh consecutive season but were disappointing in a 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk.

    Ilkay Gundogan’s 56th-minute strike put City ahead and on the way to top spot in Group C.

    But Manor Solomon equalised 13 minutes later to keep alive Shakhtar’s hopes of joining City in the last 16.

    Atalanta claimed their first Champions League win with a 2-0 home victory over Dinamo Zagreb.

    Luis Muriel (pen, 27) and Alejandro Gomez (47) were on target as Atalanta moved to within a point of Dinamo and two of Shakhtar heading into the final round of games.

    Galatasaray were denied a first victory in Group A as Club Brugge scored a stoppage-time equaliser and then had two men sent off in a 1-1 draw.

    Adem Buyuk broke Galatasary’s goal duck in the competition with a clever turn and volley after 11 minutes.

    Krepin Diatta equalised two minutes into stoppage time, but both he and Clinton Mata picked up second yellow cards for excessive celebrations and Bruges had to see the game out with nine men.

    Juventus clinched top spot in Group D with a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid.

    Paulo Dybala struck the winner at the end of the first half, flashing home a free-kick off the underside of the crossbar from an acute angle.

    Bayer Leverkusen are only one point behind Atletico after marking their 100th Champions League game with a 2-0 win at Lokomotiv Moscow.

    A bizarre 11th minute own goal – Leverkusen’s third of the competition – gifted them the lead.

    Eder smashed the ball straight at team-mate Rifat Zhemaletdinov and the ricochet flew past goalkeeper Guilherme. Sven Bender added the second with a brilliant volley.
