UCL Roundup: Leiga Hold Real Madrid In 6 Goals Thriller As Leicester Make History 

Another thrilling UEFA Champions league night went down as reigning Champions, Real Madrid will have to wait until matchday 5 for progress into the round of 16 after they were held to a 3-3 draw away at Legia Warsaw on Wednesday night.

Gareth Bale celebrated his new contract with a goal in the opening minute, before setting up Karim Benzema for a second.

But Legia, looking for their first point, roared back with goals from Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe, Miroslav Radovic and Thibault Moulin until Mateo Kovacic levelled for the defending champions late on to ensure a share of the spoils.

In the other game, Borussia Dortmund edged Sporting Lisbon 1-0 at the Westfalonstadion thanks to a first half header from Adrian Ramos which guaranteed their passage from Group F on 10 points.

English Champions Leicester City, who extended their fairytale from last season’s Premier League by rattling off three wins in their debut Champions League campaign, could only secure a goalless draw at Copenhagen. They are yet to concede a goal in the Champions League so far.

That leaves the Foxes’ three points clear of Group G after Porto who saw off Club Brugge 1-0 at the Dragao courtesy of a strike from Tomas Silva.

Sevilla walloped Dinamo Zagreb 4-0 at the Sanchez Pizjuan to take the advantage in Group H.

Goals from Luciano Vietto, Sergio Escudero, Steven N’Zonzi and Wissam Ben Yedder shot the Europa League holders top of the Group on 10 points, two ahead of Juventus who were held to a 1-1 draw in Turin after a late eqauliser from Corentin Tolisso.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Wembley jinx struck again as they fell to a 1-0 reverse to Germans Bayer Leverkusen on a night of many near misses.

The Londoners succumbed to a Kevin Kampl goal midway through the second half which left them two points adrift of the Germans and four behind Group E leaders Monaco, who thrashed CSKA Moscow 3-0 with Radamel Falcao netting a brace.
