Borussia were hot but provided the essentials in Turkey. Sheriff Tiraspoll created the first surprise of the evening.
Group C: good start for Dortmund
A complicated trip on the lawn of Besiktas awaited Borussia Dortmund at the opening of the group stage of the Champions League, the Germans were quickly put in the bath, with a big opportunity for Michy Batshuayi from the sixth minute of play, and a superb save by Gregor Kobel to prevent the Red Devil from opening the scoring.
In difficulty during the first quarter of an hour, Borussia opened the scoring in the 20th minute of play. With a pass in one time, Thomas Meunier found Jude Bellingham who took care of the rest. The game was over and Dortmund consolidated their lead just before the break thanks to the inevitable Erling Haaland.
In the second half, Besiktas gave everything to make up for it, but Borussia were well in place and controlled the game perfectly … until the 94th minute and the reduction in Montero’s score. A goal that fell too late.
Borussia held on for the victory and the three points. Thomas Meunier and Axel Witsel, who played in the second half, successfully entered C1 (1-2). The other group C meeting will pit Sporting CP against Ajax.
Group D: the Sheriff on his way
Small thumbs up of the competition and qualified for his first group stage of the Champions League, Sheriff Tiraspol prolonged the euphoria by disposing of Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to goals from Adama Traore and Momo Yansané (2-0).
While waiting for the result of the clash between Inter and Real Madrid, Sheriff therefore temporarily occupies the head of Group D.
