Wednesday night offered another batch of Champions League group stage matches and the fans were certainly not short of entertainment. AC Milan played against Dinamo Zagreb at home and won 3:1. In the colors of the Italian champions, Giroud, Saelemaekers and Pobega made their mark. Shakhtar shared the points with Celtic after a 1-1 draw. Bondarenko scored an own goal, Mudryk provided the equalizer.
The match between Copenhagen and Sevilla did not offer one goal, but the spectators at Stamford Bridge witnessed two. Chelsea sent Sterling through in the lead shortly after the change of sides, but Salzburg’s response came from Okafor. Juventus surprisingly lost at home to Benfica, although they took the lead from the fourth minute after Milik’s strike. Joao Mario equalized in the first half, then Neres converted.
PSG had no problem with Maccabi Haifa and celebrated a 3-1 win after goals from Messi, Mbappé and Neymar. Napoli continued their offensive prowess and managed to defeat Rangrs after scalping Liveprool. The match was affected by the sending off of Sands in the second half. Zielinski failed to convert the penalty, but Politano made the save and eventually Raspadori and Ndombele secured the lead.
Real Madrid held their own against Leipzig’s onslaught and two second-half strikes from Valverde and Asensio eventually decided it. Manchester City was looking for a recipe for Dortmund’s defense for a long time, and in the second half the visitors even took the lead after a shot by Bellingham. However, the Citizens squeezed their German opponents into a pincer and celebrated a 2-1 turnaround after Stones’ puck and Haaland’s acrobatic finish.
