The first group: “The Red Devils” loses again
- Manchester United – Galatasaray 2-3
The ‘Red Devils’ are still struggling: things are not going well in the league (10th place) – and Manchester United are still without a point in the Champions League after two matches. After 3:4 in Munich, Erik Ten Hag’s side lost 2:3 at home to Galatasaray on Tuesday. Things looked good for Manchester for a long time at Old Trafford, but in the last 20 minutes the visitors succeeded in turning the score to 2-1. First Kerem Akturkoglu equalised, then Casemiro was sent off after a foul in the penalty area. Mauro Icardi missed the penalty kick (77). After 4 minutes, the Argentine gave a better performance and “Gala” scored to achieve the victory.
- Copenhagen – Bayern Munich 1:2
The leader of Group A is Bayern Munich. However, the defending German champions struggled for a long time in Copenhagen and fell behind. Only the two young men, Jamal Musiala (67) and Matthijs Tal (83), scored the two goals.
The second group: Arsenal makes a mistake in Lens
Surprise in Group B: After a confident 4-0 win in their Champions League opener against PSV Eindhoven, Arsenal suffered a setback in France. After taking a 1-0 lead through Gabriel Jesus (14), the “Gunners” showed themselves exaggerated. Lens took control of the match and turned the score around through Adrian Thomasson (25) and newcomer Elie Wahi (69). Pas-de-Calais finished top of Group B ahead of Arsenal.
- Eindhoven – Seville 2-2
The events at the Philips Stadium between PSV Eindhoven and Sevilla (from 66th with Djibril Sow) continued for a long time, but in the final stage things went wrong. After a mistake by defensive warrior Sergio Ramos, Luuk de Jong equalized initially from a penalty kick (86th minute). Immediately after the start of the second half, Youssef En-Nesyri brought his colors back in front on the other side after heading in a cross. However, PSV kept the last goal for themselves: Jordan Tees equalized again in the fifth minute of stoppage time to ensure the points were shared.
Group Four: Summer with a clean record again
- Inter Milan – Benfica Lisbon 1-0
Yann Sommer and Inter Milan, this seems to be a good fit. The Swiss national team goalkeeper remained without conceding a goal for the sixth time in the ninth competitive match with the “Nerazzurri”. However, Benfica’s opponents Lisbon did not make it difficult for him. Sommer only had to show his brilliance when Frederik Orsnes scored just before half-time. While Lautaro Martinez made a mistake in the attack after his quadruple in the league, his fellow striker Marcus Thuram made the decision (62).
- Salzburg – Real Sociedad 0:2
A setback for the champions of the Austrian series: after the opening win in Lisbon, the “Bulls” were forced to admit defeat in front of their home fans Real Sociedad. Mikel Oyarzabal with a smart shot past defender Omar Solit (7th place) and Bryce Mendes after a counterattack (27th place) scored the goals for the Basque side, who were already only one point in their last Champions League appearance 10 years ago and failed in the group. Stage – This year they lead Group D with 4 points.
