After another eventful week in the UEFA Youth League, we take a look at how the English sides fared on the European stage.

Manchester City 3 – 0 BSC Young Boys

City took another huge stride towards the knockout stage with another dominant victory over Swiss outfit BSC Young Boys.

15-year-old Reigan Heskey slotted a penalty home on his impressive debut to put his side ahead after just under ten minutes.

Mahamadou Susoho added to the scoring 25 minutes later as he drilled a free kick hard and low at the near post, creeping in to make it 2-0.

To cap off a perfect first half, Matthew Henderson-Hall tapped in to finish an excellent team move and the result all but confirms City’s progression to the next round.

Borussia Dortmund 2 – 2 Newcastle United

The spirited young magpies fought back to earn a point away at Dortmund, but the result still leaves them at the foot of Group F.

It took just ten minutes for the German side to take the lead as Cole Campbell’s left-footed finish got the better of Aidan Harris, and Julian Rijkhoff netted the second at the half-hour mark.

However, after 77 minutes, Cathal Heffernan’s header brought Newcastle back into touching distance and eight minutes later, James Huntley flicked a header of his own into the far post and in to seal the comeback.

Arsenal 1 – 1 Sevilla

Despite coming from a goal behind Arsenal could only gain a point as they hosted Sevilla in Group B and have a mountain to climb to avoid elimination from the competition.

In the 13th minute, José Ignacio fired the Spaniards ahead following some nice interplay with Ibrahima Sow.

After an hour of play, Jimi Gower’s delivery found Reuell Walters who guided his header in at the near post.

Copenhagen 2 – 2 Manchester United

This time it was the English team to be on the receiving end of a comeback as Copenhagen came from two goals down to earn a point against United.

After nine minutes, Ethan Williams kept a cool head and buried his finish into the bottom corner and Ethan Wheatley added number two from close range just four minutes later.

Emil Højlund’s 23rd minute penalty put the hosts back in the contest and in the dying embers of the game, Amin Chiakha broke the United hearts by tapping home in the 90th minute.

The Danish outfit remain at the summit of Group A with United in 3rd who still have a chance of qualifying.
