Robert Lewandowski equalizes late and gives Barcelona Champions League hopes

Robert Lewandowski equalized at the last minute to hold Barcelona after a thrilling 3-3 draw at home to Inter Milan in the Champions League.

Ousmane Dembele put Barcelona ahead in the 40th minute but the opening goal was canceled out by Nicolo Barella 10 minutes later.

Inter then took the lead just after the hour mark through Lautaro Martinez before Lewandowski struck the night’s first goal as Barcelona appeared to have found a way back into the game.

They then inexplicably fell behind again when Robin Gosens restored the Italians’ lead in the 89th minute, but Lewandowski’s injury-time header would ensure Barcelona’s elimination from the competition was not confirmed but was beyond their control.

Elsewhere in Group C, Leon Goretzka scored twice as Bayern Munich stormed to a 4-2 win over Viktoria Pilsen.

Bayern scored four before the 35th minute, Sadio Mané and Thomas Müller adding the others to the scoresheet and despite two goals from the home side in the second half the result was unquestionable .

In Group A, Mohamed Salah scored the fastest ever hat-trick in the Champions League as Liverpool beat Rangers 7-1 at Ibrox.

Scott Arfield had given the home side the lead before Firmino scored twice and from there the result was never in doubt as Harvey Elliot and Darwin Nunez also found the back of Rangers’ net.

Also in Liverpool’s group, Napoli secured their place in the knockout stages with a 4-2 win over Ajax.

A brace from Son Heung-min helped Tottenham take control of Group D after a dramatic 3-2 comeback home win against ten-man Eintracht Frankfurt.

Frankfurt took the lead before Son’s brace from a Harry Kane penalty in the first half ensured they stayed at the top of the group.

In the other game in Tottenham’s group, Marseille Sporting beat Lisbon 2-0.

In Group B, Club Brugge reached their first Champions League knockout stage with a goalless draw at Atletico Madrid.

The Spaniards have to fight for second place with Porto and Bayer Leverkusen, but Porto went a step ahead with a 3-0 win over the German side.
