And the Swede never once forgot where he came from, as he loves to tell.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain confirmed their knockout places by earning positive results in game-week five, joining Manchester City, Real Madrid and Zenit St. Petersburg, which sealed their progressions in the previous round.
