The UEFA Champions League headlined Wednesday’s action, but it was DeAndre Yedlin that put on the most exhilarating performance in a late-game thriller.

Yedlin picked up an assist as Newcastle scored two stoppage time goals to slip past Norwich, 4-3, in English Championship action. With his side down a goal in the 95th minute, Yedlin swung a cross onto the head of Yoan Gouffran, who powered a header into the back of the net for an equalizing goal. Then, just one minute later, Dwight Gayle completed his hat-trick to earn Newcastle a stunning late-game win.

Fabian Johnson’s Borussia Monchengladbach was on the other side of a blown lead, as the German side surrendered two straight goals to fall 2-1 to Barcelona. Johnson entered in the 48th minute, but could do little to prevent Arda Turan and Gerard Pique from earning Barca all three points with second-half finishes.

Ventura Alvarado and Jonathan Bornstein survived and advanced in Wednesday’s Copa MX action, while Luis Silva featured in Tigres’ surprising CONCACAF Champions League loss to Plaza Amador.
