Night two of the Champions League Group Stages, we’ll see the other 16 teams in action.
Real Madrid 2-3 Shaktar Donetsk
RB Salzburg 2-2 Lokomotiv Moscow
First big shock of the tournament came earlier with Shaktar beating Real. Real were 0-3 down, but scored 2 2nd half goals and had a 3rd disallowed.
Ajax v Liverpool
Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid
Inter v Monchengladbach
Man City v Porto
Midtjylland – Atalanta
Olympiacos – Marseille
Liverpool last played Ajax in the European Cup in 1966. A certain Johan Cruyff played that day. It real feels like we were robbed of that Champions League final in 2019.
Midtylland make their Champions League debut tonight.
Games have all kicked off, we’ll have updates throughout.
GOAL Porto: Winger Luiz Diaz has put Porto ahead against a strong Man City team. 0-1
Bayern won all 11 of their Champions League games last season. They arewithout Sane and Gnabry in their bid to make it 12. Atleti are without Costa, Giminez, and Niguez. Muller has just been booked for a perfectly fine challenge.
GOAL Man City: Aguero equalizes from the penalty spot. 1-1
GOAL Atalanta: One of the most exciting teams in Italy are off the mark. Zapata puts Atalanta ahead after a strong start. This could be an occasion to build up a good goal difference, and it could come down to that in a bid to qualify. 0-1.
GOAL Bayern Munich: He scored the winner in the final and he’s done it again. A calm finish after Kimmich did well to win the ball back.
Atleti were coming into the game there but Bayern as they so often do picked them off.
GOAL Atalanta: Gomez makes it 2. Could have been 1-1 but Sportiello made a fantastic save. 0-2.
GOAL Liverpool: OG, deflects off Tagliafico and goes in. 0-1
GOAL Bayern Munich: Goretzka, nothing Oblak could do about either goal. 2-0
GOAL Atalanta: Muriel scores, this is going to be a debut hammering for the Danish side. 0-3
HUGE Chance for Ajax. Neres played a beautiful ball to Tadic who tries to lob Adrian, not enough on it and Fabinho clears off the line.
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool
Bayern Munich 2-0 Atletico Madrid
Inter 0-0 Monchengladbach
Man City 1-1 Porto
Midtjyland 0-3 Atalanta
Olympiacos 0-0 Marseille
Ajax unlucky to be behind, Munich dominant, Atalanta well on top.
2nd halves underway.
GOAL Inter: Lukaku makes it 1-0, it’s been coming. 1-0
GOAL Monchengladbach: Bensebaini from the Penalty spot.
Mane has gone off for Liverpool, he’s getting ice on his leg. Possibly more injury concerns for the Premier League champions. Salah and Firmino also going off.
GOAL Bayern: Tolisso with an absolute rocket. Oblak is one of the best keepers in the world, but he couldn’t do anything about any of the 3 goals tonight. 3-0
GOAL Man City: Gundogan’s freekick goes straight in. 2-1
GOAL Bayern: Game well and truly over with Coman’s second. 4-0
GOAL Man City: Torres slots home, that should be that.
Drama between Inter and Monchengladbach. Martinez hits the post for the home side, the rebound led to calls of a handball, Monchengaldbach went on the break and Handanovic flew out of his net and put in a dirty challenge. Just a yellow. VAR checked both cases but didn’t overrule anything. Still 1-1.
GOAL Monchengladbach: More drama. Cool finish by Hofmann to turn this game around. Inter have fallen apart since taking the lead. VAR took an age checking it to see if there was an offside. The goal is given. 1-2 Monchengladbach.
GOAL Atalanta: Miranchek makes it 4. 0-4.
GOAL Olympiacos: Koka scores in injury time. Valbuena got the assist, he used to play for Marseille.
GOAL Inter: Lukaku scores from a corner. VAR are having a look at it, the Belgian striker looked offside, but did he get a touch? Goal is given. This game has come to life in the final 10 minutes. 6 minutes added on. 2-2.
FT Bayern Munich 4-0 Atletico Madrid: Bayern continue their dominant UCL form, 12 wins in a row now.
FT Midtjyland 0-4 Atalanta: Atalata make it a painful start to life in the Champions League for the Danes.
FT Olympiacos 1-0 Marseille: Late winner for the Greeks.
Fernandinho looks to be injured for Man City.
FT Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Ajax unlucky not to get something out of the game, Liverpool looked shaky at times.
CLOSE. Martinez was taken down clumsily. From the resulting freekick Kolarov hits the side netting.
FT Inter 2-2 Monchengladbach: A thrilling finish, worth watching back.
FT Man City 3-1 Porto: Not overly convincing from City.
That’s it for our liveblog tonight. We’ll be back with more Champions League next week.
