Chelsea’s qualified!

Chelsea booked their place in the last 16 after an intense match against RB Salzburg (2-1). The Blues inflicted their first defeat in the Champions League on the Austrians. If you haven’t seen it, you should watch Kai Havertz’s victorious goal. A delight.

Other notable results include Real Madrid's defeat in Leipzig, which means they will have to wait until the final matchday to confirm their top spot. Juventus, meanwhile, are out after losing 4-3 to Benfica in Lisbon. PSG’s stars smashed Maccabi Haïfa 7-2 in an impressive performance.

CR7 is back in the group

The 37-year-old striker returned to the professional squad on Tuesday. The Daily Mail adds that he is applying for a place in the squad and the team for Thursday's Europa League match against Sheriff Tiraspol. This is good news for CR7, who has found common ground with Ten Hag.

How about the Blues?

Rafael Leao is Potter’s priority

The Blues are set to make a move with a first transfer offer this winter. The Portuguese international, who is under contract with AC Milan until June 2024, is still negotiating an extension with his managers.

He scored yesterday in the Champions League and could be given a release, but not at any price. The Rossoneri are reportedly asking for around €120m to let the Almada native go.
