Italy Soccer Champions League MAN CITY
With possibly their bumper weekend Premier League clash against Liverpool on their mind, Manchester City have been held to a 1-1 draw with Atalanta, delaying their progression to the last 16 in the Champions League.
City seemed on course in Milan when Raheem Sterling got his fifth goal of the campaign just seven minutes in.
But Gabriel Jesus then missed a penalty, Mario Pasalic headed in an equaliser and reserve keeper Claudio Bravo - who was a halftime substitute for the injured Ederson - was sent off with around 10 minutes remaining as Pep Guardiola's side held on for a point.
"In the first half, we were outstanding. In the second half we suffered a lot but ... it was a good result, we need one more point to finish first and hopefully at home against Shakhtar we can do it," City manager Guardiola said.
Elsewhere in Group C, Shakhtar Donetsk struck twice in stoppage time for a 3-3 draw at Dinamo Zagreb.
City (10) lead Shakhtar and Dinamo by five points with two group matches remaining while Atalanta are bottom on one.
Tottenham put their poor domestic form behind them by recording an impressive 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.
"Different teams last year like Liverpool or Paris Saint-Germain or Napoli didn't win here. We expected a very tough game but I think the approach from the team was fantastic," Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino emphasised in Serbia.
Three days after leaving the field in tears over his role in Everton midfielder Andre Gomes' horrific injury, Son Heung-min scored twice while debutant Giovani Lo Celso and Christian Eriksen also found the net.
After his first goal, Son turned toward the TV camera and made a gesture of apology.
"I didn't want to celebrate. I just wanted to respect the situation," Son told BT Sport.
"It was a really, really tough few days. I realised how lucky I am to have the supporters, my friends, my team-mates - everyone gave me such strong messages. Of course I still feel really, really sorry about this accident and this situation.
Earlier in Group B, Bayern Munich beat Olympiakos 2-0.
In the club's first game since coach Niko Kovac was fired, striker Robert Lewandowski and substitute Ivan Persisic got the crucial goals in Germany.
The Bavarian giants (12) are assured of finishing in the top two. Tottenham (seven) have opened up a four-point gap on Red Star Belgrade while Olympiakos (one) are last.
In Moscow, Aaron Ramsey and former Bayern winger Douglas Costa scored in a 2-1 win for Juventus against Lokomotiv Moscow.
Juve (10) confirmed their last 16 participation from Group D, but Atletico Madrid (seven) missed the chance to join them by losing 2-1 at Bayer Leverkusen (three). The Spaniards, Germans and Russians (three) can still progress.
Paris Saint-Germain became the third side to join Bayern and Juve in the knock-out stage.
Mauro Icardi scored on 22 minutes and goalkeeper Keylor Navas saved a penalty as PSG edged Club Brugge 1-0 in the French capital.
The result saw them through from Group A with a maximum 12 points, five clear of Real Madrid who thrashed Galatasaray 6-0 at home.
Brazilian teenager Rodrygo scored a hat-trick, Karim Benzema a brace and a Sergio Ramos penalty saw off the Turkish side.
The 13-time European champions from the Spanish capital are five points clear of third-place Brugge (two), while Galatasaray are fourth on one point.
