The second matchday of the Champions League kicked off with Inter Milan’s victory over Viktoria Plzen, followed by an assist from Eden Dzeko. Having scored his 10th goal in his nine appearances against Viktoria Plzen, he knows his opponent’s goals well. Viktoria Plzen saw Inter fall from there after a bad tackle on Pavel Bucha reduced him to 10 men.

Sporting CP and Spurs were evenly matched, but neither side saw their chances until the 90th minute. After a strong save from Hugo Lloris, Sporting came off the bench to open the scoring with a Paulinho header in the 90th minute. Continuing his contribution from the bench, Paulinho found Arthur Gomes doubling his advantage and taking early control of Group D. It was a winnable game for Spurs, but they failed to score a goal while Sporting dominated at home.

In the closing stages, Club Brugge flew all over Porto to claim the biggest away win in Champions League history, 4-0. Antonio Nusa also scored his fourth goal in 17th and his 149th, becoming the Champions second youngest scorer in his league history. Following first, Jesper Lindström scored his league goal against Eindricht in Frankfurt’s first Champions League, giving the team its first victory in the competition. Atlético Madrid lost to Bayer Leverkusen in the 84th and 87th minutes and lost to Spurs.

Liverpool played an absolute barnburner with Ajax before Joel Matip’s winner secured a 2–1 victory. After the Reds opened the scoring, there was a slight worry when Mohammed Kudus scored a lightning strike to level Ajax. However, Liverpool made his 23 shots and created too much pressure for the Dutch team to endure.

Bayern Munich secured a decisive 2-0 victory over Barcelona thanks to goals from Lucas Hernández and Leroy Sané. Barcelona dominated the first half, but were unable to find the net before Bayern found a foothold that obscured what was behind Sane’s brilliance.

it’s more like for liverpool

Jürgen Klopp’s Reds may not have kept a clean sheet, but the goal they conceded was worth the admission fee as Ajax dribbled past the defense before Kudus had the perfect shot. .

Given the course of the season, it would have been a time when Liverpool could have conceded multiple goals, as they did against Napoli, but instead they built up the pressure until Ajax cracked. It’s no surprise that this performance saw the return of key players to Klopp’s line-up with Joel Matip, Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara starting. This trio not only know how to play Liverpool, they were integral to Liverpool’s success last season. Jota got the assist and Matip scored the winner. His one of the easiest answers to how to fix Liverpool is because it looks like they’re just getting healthier.

With Thiago’s return, the full-backs created a total of nine chances and ultimately left Liverpool to trouble for Ajax. My goal after this is to stay fit and repeat this performance against Brighton after the international break.

Second half collapse of the away team

Spurs weren’t the only ones to concede a second half goal as Sporting CP scored twice after 90 minutes. Atlético Madrid collapsed in the 84th and 87th minutes, conceding goals while losing to Bayer Leverkusen. Junior Frimpong’s introduction into the match was a turning point as Bayer assisted on both goals. From the bench he had 15 touches which allowed him to create two chances and find Robert Andrich and Moussa Diaby. Bayer’s victory in this match put him second in Group B after losing to Brugge on the first day.

Antonio Conte’s collapse appears to have been caused by Spurs losing momentum and losing composure. After defeating Dejan Kulusevski, Conte forgot his bench existed despite the pressure from Sporting on him every match. Hugo Lloris had a great day at the net, where he made four saves, but was lucky not to lose to former Spur Marcus Edwards at the end of the first half.

As Sporting put a fresh foot on the pitch, Paulinho put the pressure on before scoring a goal. His goal collapsed Spurs before assisting an insurance goal for Arthur Gomes, who was on the pitch for just a few seconds, leaving Spurs and Eintracht with Frankfurt on three points and Sporting CP on points. 6 in Group D.

Thanksgiving post for Nusa’s goal

Raise your hand if Club Brugge hit two perfects in Group B. Brugge, who has scored five goals and conceded zero, is looking to advance to his stage of the Champions League by beating Bayer’s Leverkusen, Atlético Madrid and Porto. Even if not, Bruges are at least ready to qualify for the Europa League.

A tale of two halves of Bayern Munich

It started with Sadio Mane and Thomas Müller exchanging passes for the ball, but in the end Sane made a great run into space and scored. It was the kind of statement win that Bayern needed after his three-game draw in the league. Barcelona won his xG battle by 2.0 to 1.58, but the full story can’t be told as Bayern’s best attack didn’t end in a first-half shot. In fact, Barcelona’s 0.94 in xG came in the first half compared to Bayern’s 0.30. Most of that came from the familiar source of Robert Lewandowski, who had five shots in the first half, but was unusually futile with just one on target.

Barcelona created chances in the second half, but this time Pedri missed them. Meanwhile, Bayern his Munich isolated Marcos his Alonso Lucas his Hernandez with his kick and Joshua his Kimmich’s superb corner led to his one of the easy headers he scored.

But Sane’s goal was a beautiful one. Julian Nagelsmann’s improved positional awareness for the team after the first half made sure there was no one in Sane’s way when he dribbled into the box and ended a chance and Barcelona at the same time. .
