At its premiere in the group two weeks ago, the sheriff surprised Donetsk with the victory over Shakhtar and caused an even greater shock in Madrid. He sent a Moldovan newcomer to the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in the 25th minute in a sensational lead with the Yachshijev head.
With 65 minutes played, Benzema nearly put the visitors another one up as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot passed just over the bar. The sheriff took care of one of the biggest surprises in the history of the Champions League.

The Italian champion in Kiev, where Shakhtar played home games due to the political situation in eastern Ukraine, did not show a convincing performance, but still had several great chances. However, Barella only hit the crossbar in the first half, he aimed closely at Džeko and in the end the Donetsk team held the goalkeeper Pyatov with two interventions.
The healed Messi returned to the PSG line-up after a two-game break and played against his former Barcelona coach Guardiol, who leads the City. The biggest stars in the beginning were overshadowed by the home midfielder Gueye, who opened the score in the eighth minute with a successful shot from the lime into the upper year.
The guests then had more of the game to pause, but they could not even compare in the 26th minute, when they hit the crossbar twice within a few seconds. In the 74th minute, during his third start for PSG, Messi scored the first goal, who ran into Mbappém and sent the ball under the crossbar. The Parisians over the City, a finalist in last year’s Champions League, won the UEFA competitions for the first time.
After the initial hesitation and a 1: 1 draw in Bruges, the French giant jumped to the top of group A. The second is the Belgian champion, who surprisingly won 2: 1 in Leipzig. The ambitious German club has not scored a point yet.
How about them? Agreement between PSG stars Lionel Messi and Neymar.

Liverpool is also 100% after two laps. The English team led in a duel between two former Champions League winners in Porto at half time 2: 0 and eventually won high 5: 1. Firmino and Egyptian Salah, who became the third African player with 30 or more goals in the most prestigious club competition, scored two goals.
Atlético is in second place in Group B after a turnaround and a 2: 1 victory in Milan over AC. The home team started better and led after Leao hit. In the 29th minute, however, Kessié was eliminated after the second yellow card, and the Spanish champion still used the power play at the end. In the 84th minute, Griezmann equalized and in the seventh minute the setting completed the turn from the penalty with a technical shot into the middle of the goal by Suárez.
Thus, Liverpool gunner Mohamed Salah opened the score of the match with FC Porto.

In group C, the favorites are well on their way. Dortmund played against Sporting Lisbon without injuring the biggest star of the striker Haaland, but still scored his second victory. In the 37th minute, with a premiere goal in the Borussie jersey, the summer reinforcement Malen managed to win 1: 0.
Ajax confirmed the good form and Besiktas, which lacked about 10 injured players, defeated 2: 0 at home with an overview. The Amsterdam team decided in the first half, Berghuis shone with a goal and assistance. While Ajax followed up on the victory from Lisbon against Sporting, the Turkish champion lost for the second time.
