Feyenoord Rotterdam beat Celtic Glasgow 2-0 in a double overtime, the Czech representative in the colors of the Dutch champion Ondřej Linger, who came on in the 67th minute, was spoiled by a narrow offside. Barcelona crushed group stage newcomers Antwerp 5-0, Lazio Roma settled for a 1-1 draw with Atlético Madrid with an equalizer by goalkeeper Ivan Provedel. He made his mark from the game as only the second goalkeeper in the history of the Champions League.

Manchester City sent 22 shooting attempts in the opening act, which is the most in the first half of the Champions League since the measurement began, but still went to the cabins at the break with lack. Haaland, the best gunner of last year's competition, only hit the crossbar with his head, on the other hand, just before the break, Bukari came through after a break from the only shot of the visitors. The head referee recognized the goal after the intervention of the video referee after the assistant first signaled offside.

After the change of sides, City already took advantage of the overwhelming advantage in terms of goals. Álvarez equalized in the 47th minute, and in the 60th minute the Argentine world champion turned the game around after a big mistake by the goalkeeper, who missed the ball in the center from a free kick. The English champion then made it one more time when, in the 73rd minute, after an individual action, Rodri, the author of the only goal from the June final, headed straight for the post.

Paris St. Germain, who have won just two of the opening five rounds of the French league following the departure of attacking stars Messi and Neymar, dictated the pace from the start against Dortmund. In the first half, the home team held the ball for more than 70 percent of the time, but only managed to get a goal post.

The favorite took the lead only in the 49th minute, when the gunner Mbappé converted a penalty for Süle's hand in the goal and opened the scoring from PSG's first attempt between the posts. The French international scored his eleventh goal in the last nine Champions League games. In the next nine minutes, after a successful combination, former Dortmund player Hakimi added insurance.

In the same and on paper the most difficult group F, AC Milan paid the price for a bad ending. The semi-finalist from last year sent 25 shots, eight of them between the posts, but the star of the match, Newcastle goalkeeper Pope, did not concede a single shot.

Milan last had a worse productivity in the Champions League in October 2005, when they did not help themselves to a goal against PSV Eindhoven not even 27 attempts. AC did not improve their mood against the fourth team of the last season of the English league after the weekend debacle 1:5 in the city derby by Inter.

After scoring the opening goal for Feyenoord in the home competition on Saturday, the former star Lingr was not far from the first goal for the team from Rotterdam also in the Champions League, but he scored from close offside in the set-up. It didn't have to bother the Dutch champion too much, he won comfortably 2:0 in the power play after two Celtic players were sent off shortly after, and he still hasn't converted a penalty.

In the same group, goalkeeper Lazia Provedel flashed with a goal. In the fifth minute of regulation, he ran to the center and made a 1:1 draw with an emphatic header from close range. Before him, only Bolat in December 2009 succeeded in the Champions League from goalkeepers, Enyeama less than a year later and before that, Butt scored three times from penalties. The twenty-nine-year-old Provedel already managed to score a goal in February 2020 in the second Italian league.

Barcelona, ​​who were already eliminated in the group in the last two seasons, dominated against the newcomers from Antwerp and decided with three goals in the opening 22 minutes. Recent attacking signing Joao Félix became only the second player on his Champions League debut for the Catalans to be involved in three goals, scoring two himself and assisting one. The young Portuguese set up a goal for Lewandowski, who at 35 years and 29 days became Barcelona's oldest goalscorer in the prestigious competition.

Leipzig entered Group G with a 3-1 victory over Young Boys. The visitors on the artificial grass in Bern started with an onslaught, which Simakan turned into a lead in the third minute with a header from a corner. The Swiss champion added and equalized after half an hour with a shot against Elia's post.

After the change of sides, the higher quality of the third team of the last season of the German league was already evident. Leipzig didn't take advantage of several chances, but at the end of the 73rd minute Schlager stretched from behind the goal and decided. The 20-year-old Šeško added insurance after the break in the set-up. The guests recorded their fifth win in the Champions League group in a row.

In the remaining match on Tuesday, Shakhtar Donetsk lost to Porto 1:3. All three goals were scored in the opening half hour, Galeno scored twice for the visitors. The match was played in Hamburg due to the Russian military attack on Ukraine.
