The second day of Champions League second round group stage fixtures saw City make a late comeback to seal a victory against Dortmund, with Graham Potter starting his Chelsea reign with a draw.
Some intriguing and suspenseful games were played on the second day of the GW2 Champions League group stage matches. Erling Haaland was facing his former club for the first time since joining Manchester City this season. Dortmund looked very threatening and even took the lead against the English champions as the teenage sensation Jude Bellingham scored his 4th UCL goal. A late comeback sealed the win for City thanks to great goals by central defender John Stones and of course, Erling Haaland.
Graham Potter was in command for the first time as manager of Chelsea. Raheem Sterling, who was positioned as a left-wing back by the English manager, started the scoring for the Blues by scoring the first goal of the Potter era. The game finished inexplicably at 1-1 for the Blues as Noah Okafor scored for Salzburg.
Real Madrid were also given a tough outing by the German outfit RB Leipzig. Federico Valverde extended his amazing run of form with an 80th-minute strike and Marco Asensio put the game to bed with a stoppage-time goal. Carlo Ancelotti became the second manager to win 100 matches in the Champions League.
Group H fixtures saw an upset and a PSG win. Polish striker Arakdiusz Milik’s goal went in vain as Benfica scored two goals in the space of 12 minutes to shock Juventus. The Old Lady’s knockout qualification seems to be in jeopardy due to them not being able to fetch a single point out of their first two games. Israeli club Maccabi Haifa opened the scoring against PSG through a volley. However, PSG didn’t allow them to enjoy themselves for long as the front three of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar combined to score three goals.
