In group B Champions League Jorbi Vertesen (22 years old) has been crowned the famous man in Eindhoven. Against Sevilla he was responsible for the score 2-2 with a header and in the final phase the striker provided the perfect assist for the score 2-3. Thanks to Arsenal’s 6-0 win over Lens, PSV Eindhoven also secured their place in the next round. And whether there was any celebration in Eindhoven in Spain: even Louis van Gaal spontaneously joined in the celebrations.

Not Johan Bakayoko – although he did pick up the Man of the Match award afterwards (See the video below), but Jorbi Vertisen was in the spotlight tonight. The striker was replaced by the injured Lozano before half-time, and became a scourge for Sevilla’s defense in the second half. Including Sergio Ramos, who scored the opening goal when he collided with Rakitic’s free-kick.
Lukebakio, who was a regular for Sevilla, also caught his attention. Lesue provided an impeccable assist for the 2-0 goal, which was disallowed via VAR due to an earlier handball. Sevilla seemed unconcerned: En-Nesyri made it 2-0 shortly after the end of the first half. But the Spaniards brought disaster upon themselves by giving Ocampos a stupid red card.

Substitute Saibari found contact brilliantly and PSV Eindhoven outplayed the Andalusians on the power play. Vertesen saw his powerful header at the far post turned into an own goal by Godelli and in the final phase he ran in a cross to Pepe’s head which gave PSV Eindhoven delirium. The people of Eindhoven are about to be eliminated to qualify.
PSV Eindhoven can thank not only surprise winner Vertesen for this, but also Arsenal. The Gunners made a log of Lens at home and helped PSV reach the 1/8 finals. In the first half, the score was 5-0 (!) at the Emirates Stadium after goals from Havertz, Jesus, Saka, Martinelli and Odegaard. After the break, the home team’s cannon fell silent, until Jorginho scored 6-0 from a penalty kick in the final stage. Trossard remained on the bench throughout the match.
Arsenal are certain to top the group with one game to go, while PSV Eindhoven could enter the knockout stage in second place. Lens and Sevilla could decide between themselves on the final day who can go to the Europa League.
Ramos scores the ten thousandth goal in the Champions League
Sergio Ramos scored the 10,000th goal ever in the Champions League in a 1-0 win against PSV Eindhoven. For the 37-year-old Spaniard, a four-time Big Ears Cup winner with Real Madrid, it was his 16th ever goal in Champions League football and makes him joint top scorer among defenders. Roberto Carlos and Gerard Pique also found their way into the net sixteen times during their Champions League careers. The first ever Champions League goal was scored 31 years and 4 days ago by Daniel Amokachi for Club Brugge, who beat CSKA Moscow 1-0.

The ball still goes to Arsenal after the handball Khosanov in the box. Will the score still be 6-0?

There is a fifth substitution for Arteta, and once again it is not Trossard who comes between the lines. Therefore, the Red Devil will remain on the bench throughout the match.
