Robert Lewandowski scored twice in Eindhoven as Bayern Munich came from behind to beat PSV and secure qualification from Group D

Bayern Munich qualified for the last-16 of the Champions League after a Robert Lewandowski double helped them come from behind to beat PSV 2-1.
A spot-kick and a smart finish from the Bayern striker in the second half cancelled out a controversial Santiago Arias opener for PSV in the first half.

Atletico Madrid’s victory over Rostov secures progression for the Bundesliga champions from Group D, who have now gone past this stage for 14 consecutive seasons.
PSV cannot progress in this season’s competition despite having led for a portion of the first half and defended resolutely, their hopes ended by Lewandowski’s 73rd minute winner.
Bayern wasted opportunities to put the game out of sight, with Thomas Muller and Lewandowski both denied as they looked to add gloss to their victory.
Bayern trail group leaders Atletico by three points, and will travel to Rostov next as they battle out for top spot in the remaining two matches.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side beat PSV 4-1 when the two sides met in Munich a fortnight ago, and they raced out of the blocks, eager to pick up where they left off, almost opening the scoring twice inside the first five minutes.
First Muller steered a cross just wide, then Lewandowski cannoned a header off the crossbar and diverted the rebound just over.
But the hosts weathered the early storm and took a controversial 14th-minute lead as Arias’ close-range header was allowed to stand despite the full-back being a yard offside when he fired past Manuel Neuer after Davy Propper’s effort had been saved.
The visitors were frustrated further on the half hour when Lewandowski felt he was held by Hector Moreno as he headed an Arjen Robben corner against the post.
