  • The 1st UCL matchday is over.
  • Barcelona ranks third in its group after Inter Milan and Slavia Prague.
  • Liverpool lost in Naples, Real Madrid were dismantled by PSG.

Champions League is finally back!

And here are the results of the first few games. Let's take a look at the most exciting pairings.

Tuesday 17th September

  • The reigning title holder Liverpool suffered a sensational defeat in Naples, although J├╝rgen Klopp's team had a slight advantage from a statistical point of view. The Firmino-Mane-Salah trio didn't score, despite the fact that there have been enough dangerous episodes with their involvement.
  • Erling Haland, who scored a hat trick on his UCL debut, shone in Red Bull Salzburg's impressive home win. The 19-year-old Norwegian was reportedly targeted by Man Utd bosses following his fabulous record (14 goals in just 7 games). Time for our club management to show interest in the youngster?
  • Internazionale couldn't beat Slavia at home and scored a late equalizer.
  • Chelsea lost their home duel against Valencia - the team that had previously lost the game at Camp Nou 5-2. Rodrigo was the one who made the difference and scored the only goal.

Wednesday September 18th

  • 2018/19 season finalist Tottenham Hotspur dropped points against Olympiakos despite Spurs having a two-goal lead in the 30th minute.
  • Atletico Madrid turned the game against Juventus despite two goals against, with former Barca dream player Matthijs de Ligt again showing a poor performance in an important game for the Bianconeri.
  • Philippe Coutinho made his UCL debut for Bayern and played almost an entire game when the German team beat Serbian club Red Star at home.
  • The biggest highlight of yesterday evening was the game between PSG and Real Madrid, in which Los Blancos were destroyed by the Parisians. Nothing special from Real's new signing Eden Hazard, poor performance from the new center-back duo Varane - Militao. Neymar did not participate in the game due to suspension.
