Group E: Chelsea revive against AC Milan

Chelsea is better!

Unable to win their first two European matches this season, the Blues reacted with style in their shock against AC Milan, crushed 3-0 at Stamford Bridge.

New coach Graham Potter was expected at the turn, and his team passed the test with flying colors, winning on goals from Wesley Fofana (24th), out injured, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (56th) and Reece James (62nd).

A result that shuffles the cards in Group E. Behind RB Salzburg (5 points), who tamed Dinamo Zagreb (1-0), Chelsea and Milan are neck and neck (4 points) before their return match next week at San Siro.

Group F: Real Madrid is doing well, even without realism

For lack of success, a precious victory: Real Madrid, ultra-dominant without realizing a shower of chances, took off at the top of their group by chaining against Shakhtar Donetsk (2-1) a third victory in three days (9 points ).

At the Santiago-Bernabeu stadium, Rodrygo (13th) and Vinicius (28th) put Carlo Ancelotti's team on the right track.

But the White House ran in vain after a third goal, like its draft striker Karim Benzema.

Brazilian Vinicius scored one of Real Madrid's two goals against Shakhtar Donetsk (2-1) on Wednesday October 5 in the Champions League.


Previously, RB Leipzig got back in the saddle in the race for qualification by beating Glasgow Celtic 3-1 with a goal from Frenchman Christopher Nkunku (27th) and a double from Portuguese André Silva (65th, 77th).

The German club has 3 points and is only one unit behind Shakhtar, current second.

Celtic have only one point.

Group G: Manchester City and Erling Haaland feast

But who will stop Erling Braut Haaland?

The insatiable Norwegian striker struck twice again on Wednesday against Copenhagen (5-0), continuing his incredible start to the season with Manchester City.

With an unstoppable recovery close to the post (7th) then an opportunistic goal after a repelled strike (32nd), Haaland stunned the Danes, scoring the 27th and 28th goals of his career in C1 … in just 22 matches !

Pep Guardiola's team is already taking an option on qualifying for the round of 16 (9 points), ahead of Dortmund (6 points), which plunged Sevilla FC into crisis by winning 4-1 at the Sanchez stadium. Pizjuan.

What to seal the future of coach Julen Lopetegui, whom the Spanish press announces on the departure for the benefit of the Argentinian Jorge Sampaoli?

Group H: Rabiot revives Juventus

Defeated in their first two Champions League matches, Juventus Turin has finally revived.

And it is in particular to Adrien Rabiot.

Author of a double (35th, 83rd) against Maccabi Haifa (3-1), the French international midfielder survived, supported by the Serbian Dusan Vlahovic (50th).

This first European success this season is a breath of fresh air for the "Old Lady" and her disputed coach, Massimiliano Allegri.

Juve, with 3 points, is in third place behind PSG and Benfica Lisbon (7 points), who drew (1-1) in the evening.
