Written by Ciryan Achola on September 7, 2022
Champions League football is back and like always, the tournament’s first 8 fixtures were full of incredible goals, with a couple of your favorite teams getting beat.
Chelsea Vs Dinamo Zagreb
The Croatian side’s Mislav Oršić had the last laugh by scoring a brilliant goal in the 12th minute after a counter-attack that Chelsea’s defenders couldn’t contain fast enough. 17 minutes later, Kepa Arrizabalaga had to make a save to deny the hosts a second.
New signing Aubameyang’s 2nd half tap-in was flagged offside. 90+6minutes later, a couple of woodworks and with 69% possession, Chelsea flew back to England with no point.
PSG Vs Juventus
Mbappe, Neymar and Messi led the Champions of France to a 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes to continue their hunt for a Champions League trophy that has so far proven to be elusive. PSG, who are unbeaten in 17 games, emerged victorious thanks to a Mbappe brace, one of which was a result of a brilliant Neymar link-up.
Juventus’ start hasn’t been the best this season as they currently sit 7th in the Serie A and the defeat just added to their misery.
