Transfer watch: How seven Premier League targets performed in the Champions League

Transfer watch: How seven Premier League targets performed in the Champions League

Marcos Tavares opened the scoring for the home side after just ten minutes and Eduardo Berizzo's failed to execute a comeback.

Istanbul heavyweight Beşiktaş made history late Wednesday, becoming the first Turkish club to advance to Champions League's round of 16, undefeated with 14 points, after beating Leipzig 2-1 in an away match. Sporting were unable to counter the favouritism of Barcelona, losing to two second-half goals in Spain, but overall Jorge Jesus's side gave a good account of themselves in a group containing the Spanish giants and Juventus - two teams with legitimate ambitions of winning the tournament - and Olympiakos.

Leipzig's Champions League debut ended in a 2-1 home loss to Group G victor Besiktas on Wednesday.

The German side, who had to achieve a better result than Porto to finish second behind Group G winners Besiktas, were beaten by a half-volleyed 90th minute strike from Brazil Under-23 global Talisca.

Just three minutes later, Talisca scored the last goal of the match and the Black Eagles left the field with another three points.

Excluding the Los Angeles region, total homelessness nationwide would have been down by about 1.5 percent compared with 2016. But some states saw big increases in homeless population, including North Dakota, California, New Mexico and Vermont.

Leipzig's Stefan Ilsanker was sent off for his second yellow card, then Keita made the breakthrough with three minutes remaining.

Elsewhere, Paulo Fonseca closed out a sensational group phase by his Shakhtar Donetsk team by becoming the first coach to get the better of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side this season, winning 2-1 in Ukraine.

St Juste scored from a corner in the last minute for Feyenoord, who had been reduced to 10 men in the closing stages.

Napoli have been knocked out of the contest and will now play in the Europa League.
