On Tuesday night, Casillas helped Porto to a 3-2 win over Turkish club Galatasaray. Casillas saved a penalty in the 67th minute preventing the Turkish side from equalizing. This win made the 37-year-old the second player to reach a 100 wins in the Champions League. His former teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to achieve this in the Champions League.

  • Spurs first time

It was a match to remember for Spurs after their miserable years in European football. Unfortunately, the match did not start on a good note for the London based club. French winger Ousmane Dembele gifted Barcelona an early lead, brilliantly putting Spurs defense to shame. However, substitute Lucas Moura booked Spurs spot in the knockout round with an 85th-minute goal. This is the first time in history that the London based club will be in the Round of 16. They have PSV to thank for holding Inter Milan to a draw.

  • Real youthful side left embarrassed

Real Madrid gifted some their young players an opportunity to get some minutes playing European football. The average age for the starting lineup was 24 years old. However, it did not turn out well as CSKA Moscow completed a home and away win. The inexperienced youngsters suffered a 3-0 loss. This is Real Madrid's heaviest home defeat in Champions League. Although the heavy loss the Spanish side still progressed as group winners.

A night to remember for the Swiss team Young Boys when they won against Italian champions Juventus 2-1. It could not have been a better time for the Swiss club to get their first ever UCL win against a European powerhouse such as Juventus. They also scored 2+ goals for the first time ever. Although Young Boys finished last in Group H, they now leave the Champions League with good things to add to their club history.
