Champions League.  Matchday 2.  Review of Day 1.

Day 1 of Matchday 2 has given us a few surprise results.

Group E featured BATE Borisov vs Roma and Barcelona vs Bayer Leverkusen. BATE took an early lead 3:0 and while Roma came close to salvaging the game in second half, they still fell short and the match ended 3:2. Barcelona did a better job coming back from a 0:1 deficit to level the game at one each and finally overcoming Leverkusen by the final score of 2:1. Barcelona doesn't look as threatening with Lionel Messi being out injured for roughly two month.

In Group F Bayern Munich destroyed Dinamo Zagreb by the final score of 5:0. Lewandowski had another impressive night, following this 5 goal performance in the Bundesliga with a hat trick in the game against Dinamo. Bayern looked their usual unstoppable self and gave no doubt of who the winner is going to be. In the other fixture of the night Arsenal hosted Olympiacos from Greece and were in need of all three points, especially given the fact that they lost to Dinamo in the opening matchday. The gunners had to play catch up all night with the greeks going ahead and Arsenal drawing the game each time, until finally Olympiacos scored a winning goal in the 66th minute. The game ended 2:3, leaving Arsenal in last place with zero points and Bayern Munich to play in the next two matchdays. Arsenal will need to get something off of the German Machine to hope to progress into the playoffs.

In Group G Dynamo Kyiv predictably overcame the outsiders Maccabi Tel Aviv in Haifa. The final score was 0:2. There were a lot of Dynamo supporters in the crowd as Israel is famously a home to many immigrants from Ukraine. The other game featured Porto vs Chelsea.

Champions League.  Matchday 2.  Review of Day 1.
Porto won the game 2:1, adding to Chelsea's poor start of the season.

Group H saw Gent travel to Saint Petersburg for a match vs Zenit and Valencia visit Lyon. Zenit went ahead in the first half through the effort of Artem Dzyuba, who headed in Hulk's accurate pass in the 35th minute. Gent were able to overtake control of the game right after the break and equalize only to see Shatov's cool finish after another one of Hulk's passes. Zenit won 2:1 and lead the group with 6 points. Valencia were able to overcome average Lyon and with three points now find themselves in the second spot of the group.
