Champions League Highlights

Man United 1-0 Copenhagen

Man United gave exactly what their fans wanted: Hope!

After back-to-back defeats in Group Stage games, Erik Ten Hag’s men grabbed a crucial win against Copenhagen, a tight one, but necessary.

What’s more important is that Harry Maguire and Andre Onana were the heroes in the victory; it sounds like an action movie with one hell of a twist.

Maguire, who edged close to leaving Old Trafford in the Summer, put United ahead with less than 20 minutes on the clock. However, Scott McTominay sweat the home fans when he conceded a penalty in the dying seconds with his clumsy high boot to win a desperate ball that Mohamed Elyounoussi attempted to shoot.

Then, Onana amazingly saved the spot-kick from Jordan Larson in the 97th minute to confirm United’s first win in the Champions League this season.

Braga 1-2 Real Madrid

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Jude Bellingham scored his third goal in as many Champions League games to give Real Madrid their third Group C win on the bounce against resilient Braga.

The England midfielder put Madrid two goals ahead after Rodrygo’s first-half opener, with the young Brazilian confirming his spot as the club’s fifth all-time top goalscorer in the competition.

Spanish winger Alvaro Djalo pulled a goal back for the hosts, but what’s done is done.

Sevilla 1-2 Arsenal

Brazilian wonderboy Gabriel Martinelli debuted in the Champions League, and it was a happy ending for Arsenal, too.

Arsenal redeemed themselves following the defeat to Lens in France last time by beating Sevilla 2-1 in Spain to return to the top of Group B.

It was a night of the samba when Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli combined and weathered the La Liga’s side.

Jesus spun his defender inside his half before setting Gabriel Martinelli through on goal.

Martinelli drove into the box and held off pressure from four-time winner Sergio Ramos before rounding Orjan Nyland and slotting into an empty net.

Arsenal shot out of the blocks in the second half in search of a quick second as they tried to avoid repeating what happened in the loss against Lens, and they found one.

Jesus weaved his way into the Sevilla box, cut inside on his right foot, and curled a delicate effort across the face of the goal, over Nyland, and into the far top corner.

Nemanja Gudelj headed a goal back for Sevilla on the hour mark and did the Gunners a hard time from that moment, but Mike Arteta’s side stood still and held on to complete the perfect away performance and earn a valuable three points.

Galatasaray 1-3 Bayern Munich

Harry Kane scored his 11th goal in 12 games for Bayern Munich as the German Champions beat Galatasaray 3-1 to continue their perfect start to the Champions League campaign.

An unmarked Kingsley Coman slotted Bayern into an early lead before Mauro Icardo leveled matters with an exquisite panenka finish from the spot on the half-hour mark.

With time running out for Thomas Tuchel’s side, Kane popped up in the box to poke the ball beyond Fernando Muserla at the second attempt from close range to continue his impressive start to life at his new club.

Jamal Musiala, who set up Kane for the goal that put Bayern ahead, was on the receiving end of a Kane through ball before the 20-year-old sealed victory with a third.

The result confirms a third-straight win for Bayern, who already sit five points clear at the top of Group A.

Union Berlin 0-1 Napoli

In the same group, Giacomo Raspadori bagged for Italian champions Napoli as they beat Union Berlin 1-0 away from home.

The result means they stay second in the table, three points behind Real Madrid.

Napoli face Union in their next game before a massive game against Madrid in Spain, where they’ll look to avenge the narrow defeat they suffered to Carlo Ancelotti’s side earlier in the competition.

Benfica 0-1 Real Sociedad

Victory against Benfica keeps Real Sociedad above Inter Milan in Group D.

Brias Mendez scored the game’s only goal, striking in the 63rd minute as Benfica’s troubles continued.

The Portuguese outfit have lost all three matches so far and, unsurprisingly, sit bottom of the group.
